Cut Off Mark For Nursing 2024

Nursing is one of the courses in the faculty of medical science at the universities and it is very competitive. It is due to its competitiveness that makes the cut-off mark to be high.

The cut off mark is always more than 200 in JAMB for most of the universities. Candidates need to understand that you must score nothing less than 200 in UTME.

Even though the JAMB cut-off mark for nursing is 200 for the best universities in Nigeria, scoring 200 may not give you admission to study nursing.

Best Universities to Study Nursing in Nigeria

The universities I am about to list are based on their national and global ranking. Majority of them are among the top 1000 in the world and top 5 in Nigeria.

  • University of Ibadan (UI)
  • University of Lagos (UNILAG)
  • Lagos State University (LASU)
  • University of Nigeria (UNN)
  • University of Benin (UNIBEN)

For your chances to be high, you must aim at scoring at least 250 in UTME. Please don’t get me wrong; if your score is within 200, you will still be allowed to write Post UTME. However, the probability of securing admission is low.

In every admission year, the school will release the cut off mark for all courses after JAMB has released the official minimum score for all institutions in the country. This minimum mark released by the university you select in JAMB UTME will qualify you to write the school Post UTME.

After the screening test, the school will release the result of the test. This screening test score, UTME score, and O’level result will be used to adjudged candidates that will be offered admission or not.

Then the departmental cut off mark will be released based on the aggregate score in JAMB, Post-UTME and O’level. This mark is subject to change yearly and it is determined based on students’ overall performance.

For any candidates to be offered admission into nursing, you must have a minimum score of 250 and target 75% and above in the screening test for you to have an edge.

I hope I have been able to help you with the list of all Universities that Offer Nursing in Nigeria and their Cut off Mark above.
