You won’t be on this page if you’re not searching for the 2022/2023 JAMB cut-off marks. The national cut-off mark is the first and next thing most candidates will be looking for as soon as Joint Admission and Matriculation Board releases the UTME results.

I know this from the past and that’s not going to change.

If you’ve NOT checked your result using SMS, I will love you to recheck it online too. Use the link to access the guide to do that. I recommend this to be sure that the score is not different from what you’ve seen through the text messages.

Drop a comment below this post if your score is different from what you got on SMS.

Now, to the cut-off mark for this year, below is what you must know.

JAMB Has Not Announced 2022/2023 Admission Cut-Off Marks

The JAMB national cut-off marks for 2023 had not been announced. However, when announced, it may take the same format as last year. For the 2022 admission, Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges of education, and others were allowed to declare their own cut-off marks.

In other words, instead of the board tot state, as usual, 180, 120, or 100 for universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education respectively, the board gave all these institutions the free hand to consider any score they deem fit for their aspirants.

Therefore, candidates didn't wait for JAMB to bail them out of the admission mess as far as cut-off marks were concerned. They looked out for what their proposed schools would announce for them.

Having said that, this doesn't imply that we should expect cut-off marks to be too different, if any, from what we had last year, even if JAMB will take charge this year which I'm not sure. If they could allow those schools to decide their cut-off marks last year and things went smoothly for them, they wouldn't have any reason to reverse things this year.

Of course, it may appear as if the board should reduce the cut-off marks this year because of the exaggerated mass failure. Yet, the margin in the performance of candidates, this year, is not too significant to call for a reduction in the national cut-off marks. Therefore, aspirants should read the rest of this post to get an idea of what is about to come.

I will be sure to update this post if any school announces cut-off marks, this year, lower than its last cut-off marks.

But there is more you must know.

Key Information to Know About the National Cut Off Marks

  1. Even if  JAMB announces the cut-off mark, each school will still decide its own cut-off marks. This may conform to that of JAMB and it may not.
  2. No school will announce her cut-off mark until JAMB has come up with theirs. But that may change now that JAMB has given them the freedom to decide their cut-off marks
  3. Even before now, where a school declares a mark higher than JAMB’s, the school score supersedes.
  4. Therefore, don’t believe all lies you’re seeing online for now. 

How to Know Your School Cut Off Marks Before They Announce

Good. If I must answer that rightly, I will have to give you each institution’s cut-off mark as of the last admission year.

What we conclude is, in most cases, a majority of universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education are consistent with the marks being used in the last admission. For example, some schools will not accept less than 200 no matter what JAMB says, some 180, some 150, some 140, and some strictly adhere to JAMB's.
