JAMB Cut Off Marks For All Universities and Polytechnics in Nigeria
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is responsible for the conduct of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in Nigeria. The UTME is a prerequisite for admission into all tertiary institutions in Nigeria, including universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education.
JAMB sets a minimum cut-off mark for admission into each category of institution. This cut-off mark is used by institutions to determine which candidates are eligible for admission. The cut-off mark is not the same for all institutions, and it may vary from year to year.

The minimum cut-off mark for admission into universities in Nigeria is 140. This means that candidates who score 140 or above in the UTME are eligible to apply for admission to any university in Nigeria.
