ABSU admission requirements through UTME:

  1. Candidates must have reached the age of 16.
  2. Candidates must have at least 6 (six) “Cs (Credits)” grades in their O’level result (s).

That must include English Language, Mathematics, and three other subjects related to their course of study.


For example, a Candidate who wants to study Law must have a “C” in English Language, Mathematics, Government/History, Economics, and Literature in English.

  1. Candidates must score at least 180 in the JAMB UTME examination to be offered admission into ABSU
  2. Candidates must take the ABSU post-UTME screening examination and must perform very well in the examination. (Depending on the course of study)
  3. Not more than ONE sitting result is accepted for admission into the Abia State University (ABSU)
  4. Candidates must choose the correct subject combination for their courses.
  5. Lastly, candidates must meet the agreed cutoff marks for their courses to gain admission into the university.


ABSU Admission Requirements Through Direct Entry

Candidates who desire to gain admission through direct entry into the Abia State University (ABSU) must meet the following requirements:

  1. Candidates must possess at least five (5) Credits in their O’level result. That must include English Language and Mathematics. However, two-sitting results are not allowed.

  3. Candidates are expected to get the JAMB Directly entry form from JAMB to apply.
  4. Candidates should have any of the following certificates: OND, ND, NCE, IJMB, Cambridge A level, BSc, HND, JUPEB, and ICAN.


ABSU Cutoff Marks

The cutoff mark can be said to be an agreed score set by a particular Institution as a basis for admitting Students into a department of study.

This score is accredited to candidates based on their performance in an examination.

However, Students who have scored above the required cutoff mark will stand a higher chance of being admitted than those who just met the cutoff mark.

ABSU general POST-UTME minimum cutoff mark for the 2023/2024 admission exercise is 140 and above.

This means that candidates who get above or exactly the score have thrivingly crossed the first impediment towards gaining admission into ABSU. They are then eligible to participate in the POST-UTME screening exercise.

ABSU Departmental Cutoff Marks:

Before you will be considered for admission, you must sit for the post-UTME screening exercise and meet the departmental cutoff mark.

Let it also be of notice that the ABSU departmental cutoff mark is different from the JAMB general cutoff mark.
