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. 

There is 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 Geography 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 universities to see if their post UTME adverts had been updated here too. This is because universities such as OAU, IBADAN, LAGOS,  ILORIN, etc will still ask for 200 or above notwithstanding.
