Before I continue, let me also point out that what I’m about to share will also immensely benefit upcoming candidates even before they do their JAMB Registration. They need to have prior knowledge of federal universities that accept low JAMB scores as cut off marks for Post UTME Screening Examination or admission. This is necessary just in case they end up obtaining low JAMB scores.

The reason why this is very important is that many, when they get low JAMB scores, give up their ambition as far as the current year is concerned. This is largely because they their lack information.

Good enough, JAMB gives candidates the opportunity to carry out Change of Course/Institution on its portal. So if you have need to change, it’s easy.

Candidates Seeking for Federal Universities that Accept Low JAMB Score Should Note the Following:

  1. The federal schools I would be listing below are those that accepted low JAMB scores during the previous years.
  2. The fact that they used such cut off marks in the past does not automatically imply that they would use or accept them this year. Every school reserves the right to either increase or decrease their cut off mark depending on the general performance of candidates in the UTME and their admission target as institutions.
  3. My intention here is to give you a very reliable guide so that you can have some schools in focus just in case they maintain the same cut off marks this year (most times, they don’t change).
  4. In view of this, I would be making some updates to this post as soon as schools begin to release their cut off marks for this year. That way, we can get a fresh list of federal universities that accept low JAMB score as cut off marks.
