JAMB logo
Are you seeking admission into any of the universities offering Business Education? The UTME and SSCE subjects required vary among the schools. Some go along with what JAMB states as general requirements. Some are so choosy such that they want some additions or subtractions from what JAMB asks for on general terms.

JAMB Cut Off Marks for Business Education

Though JAMB usually draws national cut off marks for all institutions in the country. However, some institutions can draw something a bit higher than that announced by JAMB. In certain cases, a few schools draw cut off marks for individual courses e.g UNILORIN, UNIOSUN, FUOYE, etc

There no space to mention the cut off mark each of these institutions will ask for this admission year. It's best to say that scoring 180 or above in UTME should be enough for any possible education course in these universities. However, it's advisable to visit the individual school's website to confirm what they asked for in the last admission year. This should be a quick guide. You can use the search box on this blog to search for any of the schools to see if their post UTME adverts had been updated here too. This is because universities such as OAU, UNILORIN, UI, UNIBEN, etc will still ask for 200 or above notwithstanding.
