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.
