The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board recently finished its tests and had its annual policy meeting, after which tertiary institutions were told to set their own cut off mark or bench score. Currently, universities such as the University of Port Harcourt, or uniport, have announced the sale of her UTME 2021 form. So I'll explain the distinction between a departmental cutoff mark and the general cutoff mark.
The general cut off mark is a student's jamb score that qualifies them to sit for any university post-utme test.
This means that if you have that score, you can buy a post-UTME form from the school.You may be admitted to the school if you perform well.
The general cut off mark qualifies you for the next step in the admissions process, which is to purchase and sit for the university post-UTME exam.
The departmental cutoff mark is a mark or aggregate score established by the university for admission into each of the school's departments.
The score is calculated using your jamb score, post-utme score, and o level result.
After dividing these scores and adding them to your utme score, you will be evaluated for admission.
Take, for example, the Federal University of Petroleum Resources in Efurun.
The mechanical engineering department's aggregate departmental cutoff mark is 60.What is the formula for calculating the total?
The student's jamb score is split by eight and then added to the utme score of the candidate.
This shows you the student's overall grade.
Let's say a student got a 200 in the jamb and a 15 in the post-utme.
His aggregate score is computed by dividing two hundred by eight, yielding twenty-five, and then adding fifteen to the twenty-five, yielding forty as the aggregate score.
This procedure is determined by the school.
Each school has its own method for determining the departmental cut-off mark and the aggregate score of students who applied to take any course at that school.
The departmental cut-off mark for various departments are not the same Medicine, law, and engineering departments, for example, frequently have a higher department cut off mark than sociology, accounting, and other departments. This is due to the fact that these departments are quite competitive, and many students apply to study these courses.
That's all there is to it.
You are qualified to acquire the university's post-utme form if you achieve the general cut-off level.
The departmental cutoff mark is what is utilized to admit students to various departments, and how it is calculated differs from school to school.
The departmental cut-off mark is derived using the candidate's jamb and utme scores.
Great Nigeria students
