JAMB and Universities Cut Off Marks for Animal Nutrition

After meeting the terms detailed above, each admission seeker must meet the JAMB cut-off marks to be able to proceed with the university’s post UTME/screening exercise. However, DE applicants are not required to write UTME or any JAMB exams. Their admissions will be based on their A’level grades and SSCE subjects/grades.
While JAMB may declare less mark for universities, you proposed university may consider a mark higher than that. This is why there is a difference between the JAMB cut-off mark and individual school cut-off marks
More so, after the post UTME, certain universities will still draw departmental cut off marks. For example, the University of Ibadan. These are the final cut-off marks that you must meet or beat before you can be offered admission eventually. 
Some universities make their computations (to arrive at the aggregate score) public while some never make it. However, the methods usually adopted include using the summation of the JAMB average score and post UTME score. Some awards point to O’level subjects etc.
