What is the UNIZIK Cut-Off Mark?
If this is your first time writing JAMB and partaking in the UNIZIK Post UTME screening, there’s the possibility that you don’t understand how Unizik’s admission works, and the crucial role cut-off marks play during admission.
The UNIZIK cut-off marks are the minimum scores required from candidates who registered for JAMB and selected this academic institution as their preferred institution (first choice). The cut-off mark is the minimum mark each candidate must score in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) before you are qualified for admission into the Nnamdi Azikiwe University.
In short words, the cut off mark serves as a benchmark that each candidate must attain before they’ll be offered admission into their chosen courses.
Why did Unizik Set the Cut-Off Mark For Admission?
Here are the three (3) most crucial reasons why tertiary institutions like UNIZIK are setting cut-off marks before admitting students.
- Admission Determination: The cut-off mark is the #1 most decisive factor in the admission process. It’s the school’s standard that evaluates and selects candidates deemed eligible for the course they applied for.
- Competition Regulation: It is no secret that Nnamdi Azikiwe University is one of the most sought-after institutions in Nigeria. To ensure they admit the best among candidates seeking admission into the school, hence the need for the cut-off mark. Cut-off mark helps manage the competition. This ensures that candidates who meet the minimum requirements are considered for admission into a particular course.
- Course-Specific Criteria: Another note-worthy reason why UNIZIK implemented cut off mark is to curb the high number of candidates seeking admission into competitive courses such as Medicine and Surgery, Law, Engineering, Pharmacy, Mass Communication, Computer Science, etc. The UNIZIK cut-off mark varies across courses, reflecting the competitiveness and academic rigour associated with each course offered by the institution.
