The most salient question in your mind now is ‘When Will JAMB Release 2018 Admission Cut Off Mark ?. This is because the admission process for each year begins as soon as the cut off mark for the year is released, so the question you have been wanting to ask is justified.
Over 1.4million candidates sat for JAMB this year, but it shouldn’t be a new thing to you that the universities,polytechnics, college of education and other can only admit the range of 300,000 to 350,000 candidates per year altogether.
Now, JAMB set a cut off mark to disqualify alot of candidates, for example : if JAMB set 200 as the JAMB cut off mark, then anyone that got below 200 have been disqualified for admission automatically.
Yes, you heard that right.
After JAMB has disqualified some set of candidates, then the universities play it own role by conducting POST UTME to also disqualify another set of candidates who didn’t meet up with the cut off mark .
In summary, what really matters is that you should score a very high mark to beat the cut-off mark if you want to be admitted for your course.
Remember, most times candidates who score 300+ might not gain admission due to some reasons, so you have to keep on pushing until you get admitted. Don’t be carried away by the high score you got in JAMB, Post UTME is the real deal.
