How to Calculate UNN Cut Off Mark

Unlike other universities that work based on 100 percent, the University of Nigeria, Nsukka usually calculates its cut off mark over 400, meaning that the admission process will be based on the average mark gotten from the JAMB and Post JAMB Cut off marks. So, assuming you get a JAMB score of 240 and a post JAMB score of 240, the average score will then be 240. This implies that you will judge based on your average score. So, the more your average score, the higher the chance of you getting admission into UNN. You just get a higher score on average and support the rest with prayer as that as not also guarantee you of automatic admission.

Let define what a cut-off mark means!

Cut off mark is the minimum JAMB or Post JAMB score that an applicant must get before he/she will be considered an admission to a particular school. So, this implies that the cut off mark is set by JAMB or Schools depending on whether it is UTME or Post UTME.

Getting the cut off mark for any course in a University will be the ultimate aim of any applicant that wishes to get admission into the University but it takes more than that. You have to work hard for you to get admission this year as the number of applicants keeps increasing. Not only that, but the way you prepare is also dependent on the type of course that you are applying for. For example, an applicant of a competitive course like Medicine should be determined to have a high average score than an applicant of less competitive courses like religion.
