According to the recent JAMB annual policy meeting, the cut off for universities in the 2024/2025 admission period is 140. Those who wrote JAMB and scored 140 or above can buy the NSUK post-UTME form and register.

NSUK departmental cut-off mark

NSUK departmental cut-off mark is the second minimum score determining whether a student is to be admitted to NSUK. The mark is based on the department and specific course chosen by a student.

However, NSUK currently has no fixed department cut-off mark for every course since the NSUK cut-off mark is accessible after the release of the NSUK screening or post-UTME admission form.

Who are the candidates eligible for NSUK post-UTME/DE screening?

For students to be considered for admission to NSUK, they must participate in the post-UTME screening exercise. Below are the candidates eligible for the practice.

  1. Candidates who scored a minimum of 140.
  2. The direct entry students who have a minimum of Lower Credit in National Diploma (ND), Nasarawa State University Diploma, Merit in Nigeria Certificate of Education (NCE), and eight points in Interim Joint Matriculation Board Examination (IJMBE).
  3. Candidates who chose NSUK as their first choice. However, if a student chooses something other than NSUK as their first choice, they can change to their first choice on the JAMB portal to qualify for screening.
