The final UNICAL admission cut off point is derived from the summation of your JAMB Score and Post UTME Score and divided by two. However, the admission decision depends on the general performance and the number of candidates needed for a particular course.


That means, the general performance of students who sit for the test in any given course determines the cut off point for that given programme or course of study. i.e the higher the general pass rate, the higher the cut-off point whereas the lower the general pass rate, the lower the cut off point.


So, no fixed cut off point for admission until after the UTME result is compiled.

  2. can i still write unical post ume cos i chose unical as my first choice in jamb and later did change of institution

  3. Hello my dear friend. Thats a wrong choice. You should have browsed that a long time before changing your mind. Its truely late now. Like me,before i wrote my jamb,i registered for law. Along the line,i scored 210 and i now saw that the previous year’s cutoff mark for law was to high and i did change of course immediately. I went to jamb office and changed it. Now its too late,because they will be no time for that because jamb has compiled all the available results made for that year and the courses. You were surposed to have done change of course very early before the submition. Am so sorry okay
