What is JUPEB cut off mark for all courses?
JUPEB cut off mark is the lowest JUPEB score acceptable for your admission to study your course.
It varies for each University, and also depends on the competitiveness of that your course and its Faculty.
Below are all the Faculties and their average cut off points. Click on any Faculty to see the list of courses under that Faculty.
|FACULTIES||JUPEB CUT OFF MARKS|
|– ARTS & HUMANITIES|
– SOCIAL & MANAGEMENT SCIENCE
|– ENGINEERING||8—13 POINTS|
|– MEDICAL||12—15 POINTS|
How is JUPEB cut off point calculated?
After the final exam, each of your three (3) A’LEVEL SUBJECTS FOR JUPEB are graded with either A, B, C, D, E, or F depending on your performance.
- A = 5 points
- B = 4 points
- C = 3 points
- D = 2 points
- E = 1 point
- F = 0 point
The combination of grades gotten from your three (3) required subjects forms the total point used to calculate JUPEB cut off mark.
A University can say 13 points is their JUPEB cut off mark for your direct entry admission to study Medicine and Surgery.
This means they can only admit you via direct entry into Medicine and Surgery if your JUPEB grades in the three required subjects are AAA (15 points), AAB (14 points), AAC (13 points), or ABB (13 points).
NOTE: different courses have different cut off mark for JUPEB admission in different Universities.
