Nigerian Universities Cut Off Mark for Medicine and Surgery 2024

Medicine and Surgery is the most competitive course to get admission to study at Nigerian Federal, State and Private universities. It is the dream course of many science students.

The high competition for Medicine and Surgery is why admission to the MBBS programme is not easy.

Every admission year, thousands of students apply for the JAMB examination to study Medicine and Surgery in Nigeria.

Only a few per cent of these students get admission to study Medicine and Surgery at the university of their choice.

Many students do not get admission to Medicine and Surgery because they do not score up to the cut-off mark for the course.

It is advisable to know the cut-off mark for Medicine and Surgery in the school you are applying to study.

You would not want to make the common mistake of applying for admission to Medicine with a low JAMB score.

Let me know if you are not sure if your UTME score can get you admission to study Medicine. Also, tell me the university you are applying for in your JAMB.

This post is about the cut-off marks for Medicine and Surgery in Nigeria. I have also included the list of universities with the lowest cut-off mark for Medicine and Surgery.

Let me know in the comment box if you have any questions or need further assistance. I would love to hear from you.

  1. Good day sir ,please can i study pharmaceutical in UNIBEN with a jamb score of 250 .if no what score can i get to study pharmaceutical.

    Reply
    • Hello Ella,

      A JAMB score of 250 is low for Pharmacy at UNIBEN.

      You should target above 290.

      Let me know if you have further questions.

    • No, Immaculate

      You will get the admission if you meet the cut off mark. It is the most important factor that determines your admission chances.

  2. But I can only afford fees for a federal university and I learnt that most or even all federal uni uses o level results to calculate aggregate score. That’s why I choose uniuyo all I need to know is if that o level result can earn me admission so that I will know what to do while registering for jamb next year.

    Reply
    • Immaculate,

      Not all Federal Universities use O’level for admission processing.

      Your O’level result grade would reduce your chances for admission because of the C’s.

      Reply
    • To calculate your aggregate score, you will need to add up the points for each of your subjects. For example, if you have six A1s in your O’Level (WAEC) results, then your aggregate score would be 36.

      UNIUYO uses aggregate scores to determine admission into its various programs. The minimum aggregate score required for admission varies from program to program. However, most programs require a minimum aggregate score of 25.

  3. Pls I need replies on my previous questions I really need to be sure about my o level results if it can earn me admission and if yes what jamb score would likely be okay for it so that when I sit for jamb and its not up to the score aw just change the course

  4. And if I am to gain admission with that o level results what jamb score do you think will earn admission with that o level results

    Reply
    • Your O’level is okay for admission to MBBS.

      But, I advise to choose a school that doesn’t use O’level for calculating aggregate score.

      It will give you a higher chances for admission.

      But, you can apply to a Private University.

      You can always apply to the course of your choice.

      If you think you stand a chance, then go for it.

  11. Sir not be offensive but not all there score are really low some can still have a slim chance in entering
    Your word can sometimes be discouraging I mean to be offensive though
    I one have a good o level result a write written post utme and 261 in jamb
    And the aggregate meet the cut off mark can one have a high chance of getting an admission to fuhsi

    Reply
    • Ayokunle,

      My intention is not to discourage you, but to give you the best advice to gain university admission.

      To study Medicine in any of the Federal Universities, you need a JAMB score above 300 to stand a chance for admission.

      Getting admission is determined by meeting the cut-off marks based on the performance of students.

      Reply
  12. Sir not be offensive but not all this score are low because I don’t support your motion that those there score are low

    And with a good o level result
    Well post utme and 261 in jamb can I stand a chance in Ila orangun
    Since my aggregate will meet there cut off mark
    And what there cutoff for mbbs

    • Emmanuel,

      You can apply to Biological Science courses (like Microbiology, Biochemistry, Animal Biology, etc) or Basic Medical Science (Anatomy and Physiology).

      Also, your score can get you Medical Rehabilitation at UNN.

      It is possible if you meet the cut off mark.

      But LASU is highly competitive. You will stand a better chance at another State University.

      Your JAMB score may be low for Medicine, except you get a high aggregate score from the Post UTME to meet the cut off mark.

    • No, Mark

      Your JAMB score may be for for Medicine at FUNAI.

      You’d stand a higher chance if you apply to a less competitive school.

      A JAMB score of 230 is low to study Medicine or Pharmacy.

      You will have to apply to a less competitive course like in the Biological Sciences.
