The University of Lagos (UNILAG) has released the cut-off points required for undergraduate admission for the 2023/2024 academic calendar year.
During the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB’s) policy meeting early this year, all Nigerian universities adopted 140 minimum JAMB scores for admission.
However, the admission requirements and mode of calculation differ with institutions.
At the University of Lagos, the cut-off point is determined by the candidates’ UTME score that is divided by eight to arrive at 50 points; the Post-UTME score which carries 30 points, and the remaining 20 points determined by the candidate’s O’level result.
