ABU Cut-Off Mark: The Gatekeeper of Admission
The admission authority at ABU Zaria has declared the minimum score candidates must achieve in their JAMB UTME to be considered for admission. For the 2023/2024 academic session, candidates are required to score no less than 180 in their JAMB UTME.
Moreover, candidates should have chosen ABU as their first-choice institution in the JAMB application process. Achieving the defined cut-off score and indicating ABU as the top preference increases the candidates’ prospects of securing an admission offer from the university.
