After your Jamb exam, the next thing is to ensure you meet up with the Jamb cut off mark set for your institution of choice. Without scoring up to the Jamb cut off mark, the candidate will have to change to another institution, or perhaps, come again the following year (if he or she is adamant about attending that particular institution).

Therefore, just as stated earlier, let us work with the last session’s so you can have an idea of how things work with the institution. 

Last year, after students have been shown their Jamb results, the announcement was made that candidates who applied for admission into the Kaduna State University (KASU) and were able to score 170 and above in the examination, are the ones eligible to write KASU post UTME screening exercise.

It was also added that the candidates must ensure they possess relevant O’Levels results, as the absence of this will also disqualify them.
