Whether federal, state or private university, earning is one of the main criteria for admission. Other yardsticks are catchment areas and educationally less developed states. Universities usually have two truncated markers, namely:
A. General Cut off Point:
This is the grade under which you can not obtain admission to study a course. It is 50% for the University of Benin and many other federal schools.
B. Departmental Cut off Point:
This exclusion limit is published each year by the departments and is based on student performance. It determines whether you are going to be admitted to study your desired degree program.
Some candidates who score less than the general cut-off but via the departmental cut-off marks are generally admitted to study courses related to their desired course.
The departmental cut off marks vary for the MERIT, catchment area and education less developed countries, but the performance is always higher for the merit. The catchment area of the school is the geographical area from which students can attend a local school.
You now understand how the University’s admissions cut off mark is achieved and why some candidates are not offered admission, even if they are above the general cut off Point.
Now let’s answer the remaining frequently asked question.
