The UNIBEN JAMB Cut-Off Mark for all courses offered 2021/2022 academic session has been officially released. The cut off point here is for all candidates who chose the University of Benin as their preferred choice of higher institution during the UTME registration can confirm if they meet the current official UNIBEN JAMB cut-off mark for 2021/2022 academic session.
LOCATION: The University of Benin is located in Ugbowo, Benin, City, Edo state.
Before now, there used to be a general misconception candidates have towards JAMB cut off marks and we are about to clear such anomaly to avoid constant repetition. Not many candidates are aware that The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is the body responsible for fixing cut off marks for tertiary institutions in Nigeria including Colleges of Education. The perception is that the school they selected during therr UTME registration is saddled with such duty.
Since this post about candidates wanting to know the 2021/2022 UNIBEN cut off mark, we will streamline our talk to bother on the subject matter. There is what is referred to as general cut off mark and it varies from one school to another, this cut off mark is usually a bench mark every candidate that score up to in order to gain admission into UNIBEN, it is referred to as the JAMB cut off mark we are well aware of. Scoring up to the figure fixed by JAMB for such institution gives the candidate the eligibility to participate in UNIBEN post UTME screening exercise.
Candidates who have good links like Lecturers in UNIBEN who can mediate on their behalf will definitely confirm that you passed UNIBEN JAMB cut mark which is 200 before offering to help you out, else they would back out because they understand the consequences of going ahead.
Candidates who must have chosen the university of Benin and do not score to the the minimum required JAMB cut off mark set for UNIBEN automatically lose out on admission for that academic session and please note that any individual claiming to be an agent or have links with UNIBEN admission office who says he or she can influence your admission knowing you did not score up to UNIBEN’s minimum JAMB cut off mark is fraudulent, but note that if UNIBEN finally grants you provisional admission, be rest assured that you will be kicked out in your 300 level or final year, a word is enough for the wise.
UNIBEN JAMB cut off mark for 2021/2022 academic session, in the case of UNIBEN and other universities in Nigeria, JAMB fixes the general cut off mark and know that the fixed figure can remain the same for the next four (4) to five (5) academic session without changing except JAMB officials deem otherwise and in cases like this, we keep close tabs on JAMB admission office should there be any change we always update out contents. So candidates expecting a constant change in cut off marks every academic session are getting it all wrong.
In UNIBEN and other tertiary institutions, the only constant change that occurs in cut off marks are the departmental cut off marks. However, these changes vary, based on the average pass rates in JAMB or number of candidates for that academic session.
A typical example is UNIBEN JAMB cut off mark for Medicine and Surgery for 2021/2022 session could be fixed at 260 and above and the following academic session it could be fixed at 280 and above. This change could be based on the increase in the average pass rate pass rate or increase in candidates that selects Medicine and Surgery during their JAMB application. Same rule applies for other courses like Pharmacy, Accounting, Law and other Engineering courses.
In summary, we have been able to clear the air as regards who fixes JAMB cut off mark and why cut off marks do not change often except cut off marks for departments?
In this post we have in details, UNIBEN JAMB cut off mark for all departments for 2021/2022 academic session.
