Rivers State University Departmental Cut Off Mark 2024/2025

This post contains the Rivers State University (RSU) departmental cut off mark for all the courses at the University.

The Rivers State University (RSU) general cut off mark for the 2022/2023 academic admission session is 180.

Students who score 180 and above in the 2022 JAMB examination can apply for the RSU Post UTME screening.

The DELSU cut off mark is a combination of your JAMB score and your Post UTME score.

Here is the step to calculate your RSU aggregate score;

  • Divide your JAMB score by 8
  • Know your RSU Post UTME score
  • Add your JAMB score divided by 8 to your Post UTME score.

For example, you have a JAMB score of 220 and a Post UTME score of 41.

The calculation for your aggregate score is;

  • JAMB Score: 220/8 = 27.5
  • RSU Post UTME Score = 41
  • RSU Aggregate Score: 27.5 + 41 = 68.5

Your aggregate score will determine if you will get the course you have applied to study at Rivers State University.

Let me know in the comment if you have any questions or need further clarification.

Also, you can read my post on how to prepare and pass the RSU Post UTME exams here.

Let me know your Post UTME and JAMB score to know your admission changes. Also, feel free to ask me any questions.

  1. Please I was transfered from political science to philosophy and I accepted it
    It was now reflecting as my first choice for some time it later went back to political science should I do change of course

  2. Please sir I have some questions
    Do the school select a course for u during supplementary or you select a course of your choice?
    Is the departmental cutoof mark out?

      • Pls sir after writing the jupeb program and getting the direct entry from am I still going to write the university exam and please wat the cut off mark for jupeb program in Rsust

        • Samuel,

          RSU does not do the JUPEB programme.

          It is advisable to sit for the university entry exam to increase your chances for admission.

  3. Good day Sir
    Can I get admission through supplementary with an aggregate of 46.125 for Biochemistry?
    My initial course is Nursing?

    • Yes, Favour,

      Though, your aggregate score is no up to the cut off mark for Biochemistry.

      You may want to consider choosing a course in the Biological Sciences.

  4. Please my aggregate is 49, and i didn’t pass my cut off mark, so i want to do a change of course, will i go to the school or Jamb CBT centre to effect the change?

    • Riches,

      You will only go to the JAMB CBT centre after you have been given admission.

      The supplementary form is done on the school portal when it is available.

  5. I got an aggregate of 54, do I still stand a chance of studying computer science whose cut off is 57 or should I get a supplementary form?

    • Miracle,

      Your aggregate score is lower than the cut off mark for Mass Communication.

      You will likely get admission for another course similar to Communication Studies.

  6. Hey Good morning
    My baby sis wrote and scored a total of 64.8 as her aggregate. Is it possible for her to be admitted into the department of law

    • Hello Dave,

      She stands a slim chance for law, because she is short of five marks from the cut off mark.

      If she does not make the merit list, she will have to apply for supplementary admission to a less competitive course.

      Let me know if you have further questions.

    • Ben,

      Your aggregate score is not up to 59.

      But, you stand a slim chance, or you will be given a lesser competitive course.

      Let me know if you have further questions.

    • Hello Shamsia,

      Your JAMB score is low for Nursing Science.

      Deciding t apply for a pre-degree is a good option.

    • Yes, Shamsia,

      It is possible if you get a high score in your Post UTME to meet the cut off mark.

    • Hello Shamsia,

      There is no reason to be scared.

      Wait till you see your JAMB result; hopefully, you will get a good score.

      The cut-off mark will be out a few months from now.

      • I just saw my result and I got 195 in jamb is there any chance I can’t get to write Post Utme exams for medicine or even nursing ?

        • Hello Moses,

          You have to apply to a less competitive course.
