  1. This post is divided into two parts. The first part compares the subjects JAMB requires of you in SSCE with what individual polytechnics demand. The second part compares the subjects JAMB requires in UTME with what individual institution requires.
  2. In either case, what your proposed institution demands supersede that of JAMB.
  3. I refer to the polytechnics offering Banking and Finance by their acronyms or alias here e.g IBD-POLY, FEDPOLY-OFF, etc. If you don't understand what each acronym stands for, come back here and click this link to see their full names and addresses.
  4. The polytechnics are the official accredited and approved institutions as detailed by the JAMB official brochure.

JAMB and School Cut-Off Marks For Banking and Finance

JAMB usually declares particular cut off marks for polytechnics. For public-owned polytechnics, it's usually from 120 and above. For the private polytechnics form 110 and above.

There is no way to be specific about the cut off mark of each of the polytechnics here. You should check for the post UTME adverts of these schools before you can be sure they accept a specific score from JAMB UTME. This is because some polytechnics, even though announces less mark, will still accept higher marks e.g 140, 150, 160 0r above.

You can use the search box on this blog to search for the post UTME adverts of your own institution to see if I'd covered it recently.
