UNN Cut Off Mark
UNN Cut off mark is the minimum score a candidate must get in order to qualify for admission into their course of choice.
There are two types of UNN Cut off mark, they are
- UNN general cut off mark
- UNN departmental cut off mark
Let me explain the two briefly so that you will keep flowing with me.
UNN General Cut Off Mark
The UNN general cut off mark is the minimum JAMB score a candidate seeking admission in the school must get to qualify for Post UTME Screening.
UNN general cut off mark is normally the same for all courses, departments and faculties.
For the 2024/2025 academic session, UNN general cut off mark is 160.
This means that aspirants whose JAMB scores are below 160 do not qualify to partake in UNN Post UTME Screening exercise. Such candidates purchase the JAMB Change of Institution form and apply to another school that can accept their score.
UNN Departmental Cut Off Mark
UNN departmental cut off is the minimum aggregate score an aspirant, seeking admission into a particular course, must get in order to qualify.
Of course, UNN departmental cut off mark comes out after the release of the general cut off mark and the screening exercise.
So shortly after the conduct of UNN Post UTME screening exercise, UNN departmental cut off marks start coming out.
The school uses the candidates’ JAMB score and Post UTME screening score to determine the departmental cut off marks. In other words, the school uses the candidates’ JAMB score and Post UTME screening score to determine their aggregate score.
UNN departmental cut off marks are judged against the candidates’ aggregate scores.
A UNN aspirant’s name will definitely appear in the merit admission list if his or her aggregate score exceeds their departmental cut off mark. This is because the process of compiling names in the merit admission list is very transparent. So it’s strictly on the basis of merit as the name implies.

How to Calculate UNN Aggregate Score
After UNN Post UTME Screening Exercise, the school calculates the aggregate scores of her candidates. Depending on the decision of the school senate, the aggregate score may be arrived at by taking a 60:40 or 50:50 ratio.
The 60:40 ratio implies that
- JAMB Score = 60%
- Post UTME Screening Score = 40%
However, the 50:50 ratio implies that
- JAMB Score = 50%
- Post UTME Screening Score = 50%
This is the same as taking a simple average of the candidates’ JAMB score and Post-UTME score.
Aggregate = (JAMB score + Post UTME score) ÷ 2
An Illustration of How to Calculate UNN Aggregate Score
This illustration will clear any confusion you may have with respect to calculating UNN aggregate score. But if you still need to ask questions, feel free to scroll down and use the comment box.
So let’s assume your JAMB score is 280.
Multiply the 280 by 0.6 (i.e. 60%). This will give you a JAMB score of 168.
Assume also that your Post UTME Screening score is 300.
Multiply the 300 with 0.4 (i.e. 40%). This will give you Post UTME score of 120.
Now add the JAMB score and Post UTME score together: 168 + 120 = 288
That’s your aggregate score.
Hope you got it?
How to Calculate Screening Score Where UNN Will Not Conduct or Write Post UTME Examination
UNN reserves the right to decide not to conduct Post UTME examination. If the school takes this decision for whatever reason, it means that UNN aspirants will not write Post UTME exam for the year in question.
For instance, UNN will not conduct Post UTME examination for 2024/2025 candidates.
Rather, the school will screen and score the candidates’ O’level results to obtain the 40% for Post UTME.
The O’Level grades take the following scores
A1 is 100
B2 is 90
B3 is 80
C4 is 70
C5 is 60
C6 is 50
D7 is 40
Score these for your four UTME subjects only. Whatever you get is your UNN Post UTME Screening score.
Then follow the illustration above to calculate your aggregate score.
