Here’s what the 160 general Jamb cutoff means for you applying into the university.

Jamb and other stake holders held a meeting and concluded that they are setting the admission bar for post Jamb cut off to 160 while some other institutions like Polytechnics and colleges go as low as 110. In my opinion it’s something to frown on I mean, 160 isn’t even half of 400.

I’ve been getting calls of excitement from students who are happy about the present cutoff because they now meet the criteria but here’s what they don’t know. I’d try to make this explanation very simple.

Jamb set cut off to 160, but has given institutions the right to go higher than that in their own cutoffs. Something similar happened last year, and a handful of institutions didn’t use Jamb Cutoff for their Post UTME criteria.

Also let’s just say your favorite institutions want to go that low. Students that fall within the 160 scope will be competing with students who scored 190 upwards for that spot, you should know the competition isn’t between the cutoff but with other students that did better. Besides they will only be setting the bar that low just to make money of the students.

Way out.

Change institutions and courses to schools with less competiton.

Prepare for another Jamb.
