FCE Zaira Approved JAMB Cut Off Mark For 2020/2021 Academic Session.
This is the approved JAMB cut off mark for candidates that selected FCE Zaria and sat for 2020 UTME. Any student that scores up to the minimum required cut off mark as seen below automatically becomes eligible to sit for the forthcoming post UTME/internal screening exercise.
Kindly note that your current JAMB score is only applicable for 2020/2021 admission year after which the JAMB score becomes null and void and of no effect.
May we remind you once more that only candidates who scored up to the minimum cut off mark and those who score above all have equal eligibility status to sit for FCE Zaria post UTME aptitude test and only successful candidates would be called upon.
Also, note that scoring above the JAMB and post UTME cut off mark does not imply automatic admission into Federal College of Education Zaria, Kaduna as this depends on the admission slot allotted for each department.
Every department has a quota, so usually, admission is based on merit which means that despite passing your post UTME you still have the best to compete with in order to gain admission.
The summary of the above is, the higher your JAMB and post UTME scores, the better your chances of gaining admission into FCE Zaria (Federal College of Education, Zaria).
After the above, candidates are to wait for admission list to be released and if successful, candidates would be required to pay an non-refundable acceptance fee.
See the approved cut off mark of FCE Zaria as approved by JAMB. It is the minimum cut off mark for courses offered in 2020/2021 academic session at the end of this post.
Candidates should note that the benefits of scoring above FCE Zaria cut off mark for 2020/2021 academic session is that it affords candidates a much higher chances of clinching admission to study their chosen course.
