Due unusually low marks of many candidates in the 2021 Unified Tertiary Institutions Matriculation Examination (UTME), some institutions have reduced their admission cut off marks. A number of federal universities are now going to admit candidates that scored less than 200 in 2021 UTME. In this article, I am concerned with the South East universities that have cut off mark of 170 or less.
The first university on my list is King David University of Medical Sciences (KDUMS). KDUMS is one of the seven medical universities that are approved by the National Universities Commission (NUC). KDUMS, which is located in Uburu, is owned by the government of Ebonyi State. In July, 2021, yhe institution received NUC approval to mount twenty four undergraduate programs in sciences and medicine. According to information available from the institution's website, the cut off mark for 2021 admission is 170. The university also allows candidates awaiting results to apply.
Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK) is one of the South East universities that have low cut off marks. The university began as Anambra State University of Technology in 1980 with four campuses in Abakaliki, Awka, Enugu and Nnewi. When Enugu was created in 1991, the Awka and Nnewi campuses came under the ownership of Anambra. UNIZIK came under the ownership of the federal government in 1992. The least cut off mark advertised by the university for 2021/22 admission is 160. This score applies to all institutions affiliated to UNIZIK and courses in Agriculture, Education, Environmental Sciences and Physical Sciences. Candidates that wish to study Arts, Managenent, Basic Medical Sciences or Engineering courses in the university must score above 180. For students that intend to study Medicine, Law, Pharmacy or Health Science, the score must be above 200.
