What is the cut off Mark for university 

JAMB announced that the cut off mark for universities is 140. Candidates who score below 140 are not eligible to apply for admissions in universities; so you need to pass the cut off mark to be eligible for admission in the 2024/2025 UTME exam.

How To Know Your Department Cutoff Mark

Department cutoff marks are the minimum score you need to gain admission into the department. Department cutoff marks are usually set by the department based on some factors like available space, performance of applicants etc.
