JAMB Cutoff Mark

The general JAMB cutoff mark for UNN is 200.

How to Calculate UNN Aggregate Score 

UNN uses the 60:40 ratio for the calculation of her cutoff mark;

  • JAMB Score = 60%
  • UNN Post UTME Score = 40%
  • Multiply your JAMB score by 0.6
  • Multiply your Post UTME score by 0.4

For example, if your JAMB score is 280 and your Post UTME score is 310. Here is how to calculate your aggregate score;

  • JAMB = 280 x 0.6 = 168
  • Post UTME = 310 x 0.4 = 124
  • Aggregate Score = 292

UNN may also decide to use the 50:50 ratio.

It means that your JAMB and Post UTME scores will carry the same mark.

Add your JAMB and Post UTME score divided by 2.

You will see your aggregate score when you check your screening result online.

How is How UNN Departmental Cut Off Mark is determined

Navigating the admissions process at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) can feel a bit like deciphering a secret code. And, one crucial piece of that puzzle is the departmental cut-off mark. But don’t worry, we’re here to decode this for you and make it as easy as ABC!

First things first, let’s get clear on what we’re talking about. The departmental cut-off mark is the minimum score you need in your Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and post-UTME to be eligible for admission into a specific department at UNN.

So, how is this mysterious number determined? Well, there’s no magic or dart-throwing involved. It’s a thought-through process guided by a few key factors.

  1. Performance in the UTME: The better the overall performance of applicants in the UTME for a specific course, the higher the departmental cut-off mark is likely to be. So, if everyone is acing the UTME, the cut-off goes up. It’s a bit like a tug of war – as scores go up, so does the cut-off mark.
  2. Departmental Quota: Each department has a limit on the number of students it can admit each year, and this influences the cut-off mark. If there are fewer slots available, the competition gets fierce, and the cut-off mark might be raised to narrow down the applicants.
  3. Popularity of the Course: Some courses attract more students than others. For these popular courses, the cut-off mark is typically higher because, well, there’s more competition.

Remember, these cut-off marks aren’t designed to make life difficult. They’re there to ensure that the admission process is fair and that the most qualified candidates secure spots.

With this information in mind, you can proceed to try your best to break the screening score record with dedication and determination.
