Universities That Accept Low JAMB Scores (160 and Above) For Post-UTME Screening

These days a low JAMB score does not necessarily mean that you cannot gain admission into a Federal or State University. Interestingly, many Federal and State Universities in the last few years have reduced their cut off marks.

So with many of these schools bringing their cut-off marks down to 160, many candidates with low JAMB scores still have a good chance of securing admission.

The purpose of this post is to make it easier for candidates with low JAMB scores (160 and above) to be able to know federal and state universities that can accept them for Post-UTME screening exercise.

At the moment, below is the list of universities that accept low JAMB scores (160 and above) for Post-UTME screening exercise. Please note that this is based on what the school used as their cut-off marks last year.

IMPORTANT: It is advisable you do a JAMB change of institution to any of these schools you wish to apply to in order to stand a good chance of getting admitted.
