UNN Departmental Cut Off Mark for All Courses 2022/2023

UNN departmental cut off mark is a combination of your JAMB and Post UTME score.

Your name will come out on the merit list if your aggregate score is higher than your departmental cut off mark.

UNN merit is hundred per cent transparent for all courses. You must see your name on the admission list if you beat the cut off mark.

I recommend you read How to Get Admission to UNN to know everything about the UNN admission process.

The UNN general cut off mark for the 2022/2023 academic admission session is 140.

Applicants who scored 140 and above can write the UNN Post UTME exams.

This article contains the list of UNN departmental cut off marks for all courses.

You can share your UNN Post UTME experience here.

I would love to hear from you in the comment box.

Let me know if you have any questions or need further assistance.

Calculation for UNN Aggregate Score

UNN uses the 60:40 ratio for the calculation of her cut off mark;

  • JAMB Score = 60%
  • UNN Post UTME Score = 40%
  • Multiply your JAMB score by 0.6
  • Multiply your Post UTME score by 0.4

For example, if your JAMB score is 280 and your Post UTME score is 310. Here is how to calculate your aggregate score;

  • JAMB = 280 x 0.6 = 168
  • Post UTME = 310 x 0.4 = 124
  • Agrregate Score = 292

UNN may decide to use the 50:50 ratio.

It means that your JAMB and Post UTME scores will carry the same mark.

Add your JAMB and Post UTME score divided by 2.

You will see your aggregate score when you check your screening result online.

UNN Departmental Cut Off Mark

A statue in UNEC

The UNN departmental cut off mark for all courses is determined by the performance of students in each year’s JAMB and Post UTME.

It means that there is no fixed cut off mark. For example, the merit cut off mark for Nursing Science could have been 287. But this year, the cutoff mark may increase or decrease.

Each of the departments in UNN determines the merit cut off mark at the end of the Post UTME screening exam.

For example, the Department of Medical Laboratory Science will compile the total score of students. They will look at the highest aggregate score and the lowest aggregate score within the admission quota.

You can check my write up on how to get admission to UNN to know more about this process.

Note: The cut-off mark below is for the 2021/2022 admission year.

    • Hello Ogochukwu,

      I think it will be much better if you do a change of Course. Besides this, if you are able to get a score above 300, then your chance of admission will increase.

    • Good day Sir Friday

      Kogi is one of the Education Less Developed states in Nigeria and so, gives you an edge.

      But as stated in the post, your jamb score accounts for 60% of your aggregate score while your Post Utme score accounts for the remaining 40%.

      I’ll encourage you to do really well in your Post Utme to increase your chances. Read more on how to study and pass Post Utme here

  7. Sir you register for a course and after the postutme your aggregate doesn’t meet up with your desired course will UNN automatically give admission into a course that blenders with your aggregate

    Reply
    • The answer to your questions is yes.

      Assuming you applied for Medical Laboratory Science at UNN but did not meet up to the cut off mark.

      There is a high chance you will get admission for another course maybe in Biological Sciences or Medical Laboratory Science itself.

      Students who do not meet up to the cut off mark are advised to buy their shopping form to increase their chances of admission.

      Let me know if you have any further questions.

    Reply
    • Hello Festus,

      There is no straightforward answer to your question.

      It depends on whether or not you want to reside abroad or in Nigeria.

      If the goal is to make a living here in Nigeria, then go for Pharmacy.

      But if you want to build a career in Medicine abroad, then Dentistry is a good option.

      Concerning admission, you would need to get a high UNN Post UTME score.

      Let me know if you have further questions.

        I am afraid the cut off mark for Mathematics last admission year was not made public.

        You would want to target about 250 as your aggregate score if you want to study Mathematics at UNN.
