When Will JAMB Announce Cut-off Marks for 2020?

If you are one of those candidates wondering when JAMB will release the cut-off marks for 2020/2021, we have news for you. The authorities of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) have said when they will announce the cut-off mark benchmarks.

The 2020/2021 cut-off marks are the minimum UTME scores Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges will use for the session’s admission.


In a recent statement by JAMB the marks will be out as follows:

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has disclosed that the 2020 cut-off marks would be decided on June 15 and 16 at a stakeholders’ policy meeting and expected to be presided by the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.

Also, it has disclaimed admission cut-off marks circulating on social media, asking higher institution admission seekers to disregard them.

The board in a statement by its Head of Media and Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin gave this information.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please note that these are the general cut-off marks. The schools will only use them as guides. Therefore, each school has the liberty to set their own cut-off mark. For example, if JAMB sets university cut-off marks at 160, any university can decide to use 220. It can be higher than what JAMB sets but cannot be lower.
