UNN Cut-Off Mark for 2020/2021 Session is Out
The University of Nigeria, Nsukka Post UTME for the 2020/2021 Academic Session have been successfully conducted and the results are currently out. Our readers who took part in the Post UTME Screening exercise can read how to check their results here.
Before the screening exercise, only applicants with a score of 180 and above in their UTME results, took part. The cut off mark also varied from faculty to faculty, most notably the faculties of Law, Engineering, Medical Sciences and others who only allowed 200 score and above.
The UNN Cut-off mark for the 2020/2021 Academic Session
We all know that our readers will be anxious as to what the cut-off mark for the 2020/2021 session would be as the Post UTME results are already out. Therefore, we will take our time to analyze the cut-off marks and how it works year-in, year-out.
How does the Cut-Off mark works?
Truthfully, there are no fixed cut-off for any particular school when it comes to admission in any session and UNN is not left out of that equation. The marks are based strictly on candidates’ performance and admission quota.
What is Admission Quota?
Admission Quota is the total number of students that will be admitted into each faculty of the school based on the recommendations of the deans and Heads of Departments (HODs) of the faculties and other departments. The body that regulates the general admission quota for each University is the National Universities Commission (NUC), who is charged with ensuring that the ratio of students admitted is directly proportional to the learning/teaching materials that each University have in place. Once determined, an admission quota lays the guideline for the admission that entire academic session.
So What Relates Admission Quota and Cut-Off Marks?
Once the admission quota of any particular department has been determined, the next step is to check for the performance of the Candidates that took part in their Post UTME exercise. For instance, if Medicine has been given an admission quota of 100, the Dean of the faculty will have to submit the numbers to their admission’s board, who in place will determine the score of all the Candidates that took part in the screening exercise and pick the best 100 amongst them. They would have to bear in mind the Catchment (including Educationally less privileged states) areas of these candidates when taking these actions. The score of the 100th candidate in corresponding order of performance from the screening exam, automatically becomes the cut-off mark for that academic session and all candidates that falls within that range will all be admitted into that very department. This is how cut-off marks work in Nigerian universities.
Candidates should bear in mind that there is also a chance for complimentary admission in UNN, where those who were not opportune to meet their required cut-off mark, will have a chance to be given another course that fits in with their Post UTME score. It’s a wild chance but it’s still better than nothing.
Therefore, for the sake of this publication and research purposes, we would release the cut-off marks and catchment marks of the previous 2019/2020 and 2018/2019 sessions. This is done so that candidates will have a chance to analyze their score and determine their chances for getting admitted for a particular course or to go for complimentary admission when the opportunity for that comes.
The UNN cut-off mark for 2019/2019 session.
While the minimum aggregate required for admission into 2019/2020 academic session is 200.
Only candidates who meet the above will be considered for admission into 2019/2020 academic session. Any question concerning the topic can be asked in the comment section.
Next cut-off mark to come out is the UNN Departmental cut-off mark. Some departments released the departmental cut-off mark as detailed below.
NB: This is for research and observation purposes only as School Metro can only determine that this is the cut-off mark for the previous 2019/2020 admission in UNN.
