Before we get started on what this year’s cut off mark is, please be informed that there is a very clear difference between Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) JAMB cut off mark and Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) post UTME cut off mark.

What is the JAMB cut off mark for Ahmadu Bello University (ABU)?

In order to help candidates, we have decided to reveal the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) 2018/2019 JAMB cut off mark so that anyone who does not meet up with the specified cut off mark will make hay while the sun shines.

Judging from our experience last year during the 2017/2018 academic session admission, we found out that some candidates who purchased Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) post UTME were screened out on the exam day because their jamb results was not up-to the required cut-off mark.

To prevent this kind of issue in time, this notice advises such candidates to look for an alternative university by buying the JAMB change of institution form while the form is still on sale.

Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) JAMB Cut Off Mark for 2018/2019

Hence, it is important that candidates who chose Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) as their choice of institution but scored less than 120 should not buy the admission form but rather inquire if there is any course that is suitable for your JAMB score before making payment for the 2018/2019 admission form

For candidates with less than 120; Quit buying the admission form at the moment as there is really no room for JAMB score less than 120 but proceed to obtain a pre-degree form directly from the School if the program is available or proceed to seek admission from any Polytechnic of choice.
