Before we get started we must understand the concepts behind these two, that is, what is Jamb Cut off mark and what is School departmental Cut off mark?
What Is Jamb Cut Off Mark?
First of all, Cut off mark as a word means ‘the minimum score (Mark) one is permitted to score before being eligible to participate in a particular program.
Now, relating this to Jamb, we can say that Jamb Cut off mark is the minimum score Jambites are allowed to score in Jamb before allowed to participate in the Post Utme of their School of Choice.
Upon completion of Jamb and release of student’s results, the Joint admission and matriculation board sit for what we call ‘JAMB POLICY MEETING‘. It is as this meeting Jamb Cut off mark for that specified year is decided.
The Cut off mark decided by Jamb and her stake holders are actually dependent on various factors, one prominent factor that determines Jamb Cut of Mark for a particular year is the Performance of student.
If Students perform well then the cut off mark will be high but if student perform poorly then the Cut off mark is bound to be low.

This Mark is usually in range (i.e Minimum and Maximum Cut off mark). Lets consider this example…
Let’s say Jamb select a Cut off mark range of 120 to 200, each school has the right to select a score within this range, so from this range, the Minimum cut off mark a school is allowed to adopt for Jamb is 120 while 200 is the maximum Cut off mark the school is allowed to use.
Like I said before, these mark is dependent on the performance of Student, and Schools that are highly competitive like ABU, UNIBEN, UI, UNILORIN e.t.c, always use Jamb Maximum cut off mark for screening student while less competitive schools can decide to use 160, 180 or any other score within the range of mark provided by Jamb.
What Is School Cut Off Mark?
Unlike Jamb Cut off mark, School Cut of mark is the minimum mark students are required to score before being considered for admission into University, Polytechnic or College of Education of choice. This mark is also based on the performance of student.
DEPARTMENTAL CUT OFF MARK is the only cut off mark that qualifies you for admission into any tertiary institution in Nigeria.
