JAMB cut-off mark for medicine and surgery

If you picked this course during your JAMB registration, I’m not trying to burst your bubble, but it’s competitive. You may meet the general cut-off marks for universities, but gaining admission may be difficult.

For example, someone who wants to study medicine in Nigeria scores 200 in JAMB. Such a candidate will be offered another course or no admission at all.

In my opinion and from my experience, JAMB cut-off mark for MBBS is 280. If you are applying for admission to schools like UI, OAU, UNILORIN, UNILAG, etc., aim for 300 and above.

Many young people in Nigeria want to become medical doctors due to the unemployment wahala in Nigeria and the prestige attached to the job.

Did JAMB cut off mark 2024 reduce?

The joint admissions and matriculation board may reduce or increase the cut-off mark this year depending on the following:

  1. The average JAMB score in 2024
  2. JAMB result statistics
  3. What the board agrees on after a meeting.

So, if it is reduced or aggregated, you will surely hear about it. The reduction of the scores is good news because this year, JAMB does not look good.

How to calculate admission cut-off mark

There is no specific formula for calculating your JAMB cut-off mark; it is your overall score. Just check your JAMB result. What’s the total score for the four subjects you sat for? Now, compare it to the cut-off score proposed by JAMB.

If you can’t find the cut-off mark for your institution, leave a comment below and expect a response from me ASAP.

Share this post with every JAMB 2024 candidate you know. God bless!
