What Is JAMB Cut Off Mark 2022/2023?

The JAMB cut-off score is used for admission is the minimum UTME score you must have before you can be allowed to apply for admission into a school/course.

The management of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced 150 and above as the latest cut-off mark for all federal, state, and private Universities while 130 for polytechnics and 120 for college of education in Nigeria for 2022/2023 admission.

If a candidate meets or beats this mark, he/she is qualified to participate in the school Post UTME or screening exercise.

This Post UTME or screening exercise is also another important criterion for admission.

Because the JAMB candidates that apply for admission into schools in Nigeria are more than the quota (number of students the school can admit), they have to remove some candidates by using some criteria in which cut off mark is among.

Only the candidates that meet this cut-off mark are allowed to move on to the next admission exercise.

This is why you must score high in JAMB, it gives you more confidence that you can gain admission to study your course.

I hope you get that, right?

Okay, let’s move on to the next question that might come up in our minds.

Is 2022/2023 UTME Cut Off Mark Out?


The Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), JAMB cut-off mark for admission into the 2022/2023 academic session has been released.

Here are what you need to know for now;

  1. All schools will determine and fix their cut-off mark during the JAMB policy meeting which is held annually.
  2. Many officials will attend the meeting such as the JAMB registrar, the Minister of Education, Vice-Chancellors of all Universities in Nigeria, Provosts of Colleges of Education, Rectors of Polytechnics, and many other important stakeholders.
  3. In fact, the policy meeting should have been held if not for the movement restrictions due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
  4. 90% of schools use the cut-off mark they used in the preceding year (From my calculations) not a statement of fact.
  5. For example, UI, OAU, UNIBEN, UNILAG cut off the mark last year was 200 and will remain the same thing this year.
  6. Hence, there is no official announcement by JAMB or the schools yet but, likely, the cut-off mark for last year will also be used this year.

JAMB has released the general minimum cut-off mark for all universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education.

This is the minimum score each of the institutions can peg their cut-off mark during the JAMB policy meeting which will hold very soon.

Until then, you can check the cut-off mark for your school which was used last year.

In case you don’t know it, drop a comment below and I will reply to you with the cut-off mark.

Note again that the below are written based on the calculations we have done earlier, proposing that the previous JAMB cut-off is always likely to be the cut off for the following year.

Here is the official JAMB cut off mark for all Nigeria University

General University Cut Off Mark 2022/2023

The general minimum cut-off mark for all universities in Nigeria for the 2022/23 academic session is 150.

This literally means that the cutoff score for JAMB for university in Nigeria must be a minimum of 150.

With this said, any university can decide to increase its hit they can’t decrease it.

When I say university, I mean all universities including federal universities, state universities, and private universities.

General Cut Off Mark For Polytechnics 2022/2023

The declared generalized utme cut-off score for polytechnics in Nigeria is 120.

Some highly competitive polytechnics like federal polytechnic ilaro, Lagos State polytechnic, etcetera can decide to increase.

But one thing is for sure; none of the Nigerian polytechnics can reduce the cut-off mark said by the board (Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board).

General Colleges of Education JAMB Cut Off Mark 2022/2023

As you should know before that colleges of education are considered the least important in Nigeria.

Their own general cut-off score in JAMB is 100.

Colleges Like Tasued, etc can decide to add a little bit to the general cut-off mark but like other educational institutions in Nigeria, they don’t have the authority to decrease it.

How To Calculate My JAMB Cut Off Score

It is very important for you to know that the way the departmental cut-off score is calculated is totally different from that of JAMB.

And the funniest thing is that you can’t even calculate your utme cut off.

It is just your score in the JAMB exam that you need and you can see that easily in your result.

The score I am talking about is not the one in each subject, I mean the aggregate JAMB score which is over 400.

For example; let’s say I scored 300 in JAMB and the JAMB cut off point for the University I picked is 220, in that way, I have beat the UTME cut off and I am eligible for their Post UTME or screening exercise.

JAMB Finally Reduced Cut Off Mark

Do you know that JAMB has officially reduced the cut off mark?  Do not be too happy, that is just a headline

JAMB has not reduced the cut off mark for 2022/2023 JAMB. However, from statistics, JAMB is likely to reduce the cut off if and only if the below-listed condition holds

  1. Low student performance.
  2. Competitiveness
  3. The number of applicants to the admission quota.
