The Ekiti State University (EKSU) has officially released its cut off marks for jamb and various departments in the institution. This update on the release of JAMB and departmental cutoff marks was announced through the EKSU website via www.eksu.edu.ng. Therefore we have brought you the release as updated, please take your time to go through this article carefully, so that you can get the full information as expected.
First, let us start by defining cutoff mark, for the sake of the candidate(s) who does not clearly understand what cutoff actually means;
Cutoff mark simply means the minimum mark that is expected of an admission seeking-candidate to score before he/she could be eligible for admission into the University/any other higher institution of learning. Second definition; it is a fixed mark determined by the management board of a University/any other higher institution of learning as a basic for admitting students into the department of study, in which any candidate seeking for admission into such tertiary institution must not score below.
Any any candidate who scores below such mark will not be offered admission. Therefore, it’s advisable that any student seeking admission should perform well enough in order to meet up with the school’s minimum required score, even preferably to pass beyond requirement in order to improve his/her chances of securing admission into the department of their choice.
Eksu Cut Off Mark 2020 / 2021
The Ekiti State University (EKSU) has announced that its JAMB cut-off mark for 2019/2020 academic session is 180.
I scored less than 180 in my JAMB exam, am I qualified for admission into EKSU?
No, you are not, because EKSU does not admit any student who scored less than 180 in the UTME for admission.
I scored 180 in my JAMB Exam, will I be automatically offered admission into EKSU?
Well, having scored 180 in JAMB indicates your chances of being offered admission based on the admission requirement of the University, but it does not automatically guarantee that you will be offered admission, the reason for this response is because, according to several experiences about the process of offering admission to students into EKSU, preferences are usually given to students who have scored above 180 in their UTME before considerations are given to those who scored exactly 180, this is not to scare you but to let you know that this usually occur due to competitiveness in the admission processes by the admission-seeking candidates.
I shall be sighting example on how JAMB cut-off mark works.
Example for JAMB (Joint Admission and Matriculation Board) Cutoff- If the Ekiti State University (EKSU) management says its minimum JAMB (Joint admission and Matriculation Board) requirement to study law in EKSU is 240 and a candidate scored 235, which is obviously lower to the University’s requirement, such a candidate will not be considered for admission because he/she scored lower than the school actually required, but if the candidate scored 240 and above in Jamb (JOINT ADMISSION AND MATRICULATION BOARD), such candidate will be considered for admission.
Therefore, it is best you score above 180 in your UTME in order to improve your chances of securing admission into the Ekiti State University (EKSU).
Below are the departmental cutoff marks of EKITI STATE UNIVERSITY for 2019 admission;
- 240 – Medicine and Surgery, Pharmacy and Law.
- 180 – All basic Medical science courses.
- 200 – All Engineering Courses.
- 180 – All other courses under faculty of physical and natural science, Art, commercial, and so on.
Please study the above breakdown of the department and jamb cutoff mark requirement carefully. After that is done, and you have met up with the Ekiti State University’s cutoff mark, the next phase of the admission process is the screening exercise. It has come to our notice at ‘naijaschooladmission’ that many candidates who are aspiring for admission into University and other higher institution of learning do not know what screen exercise actually means and what it entails.
Therefore there are two (2) common questions from the applicants, they are as follow;
What does screening exercise means?
As part of the lay down patterns/methods of admitting students into University, ‘Screening Exercise’ means the verification of the authenticity of results and other credentials of any student aspiring to get admission into a University.
So, What are the requirements for screening exercise in EKSU?
First, it is important for you to know that Ekiti State University (EKSU) holds her screening exercise within seven days (one week) or more due to the volumes of applicants they usually have every year and also to conduct proper screening for the students to ensure that qualified students are determined and awarded admission accordingly. And to know the dates for the screening exercise, I would advice you to be constantly listening to news update about admission, reading newspapers or visiting the Ekiti State University news portal for update on the screening exercise dates.
Documents required for the screening are your SSCE (WAEC, NABTEB or NECO) RESULT and jamb registration print out.
Also note that cases of awaiting result will not be considered, better still, ensure your O level result and any other requirement are accurate as required by the university to avoid disqualification.
To sound a warning note to any candidate applying to EKSU for screening, do not get to the screening venue less than 35 to 40 minutes before the screening exercise starts, so in order to avoid getting to the University pre-screening venue/center late and also to be prioritized for the screening as well as to quickly get notified about any new development relating to the exercise.
Note that the SSCE (WAEC/NECO) RESULT and JAMB REGISTRATION PRINT OUT Screening is considered the first phase of the screening exercise, that is why it is called pre-screening for admission.
Therefore, this will lead us to discussing the second phase of the screening exercise which takes place after you have been successfully offered admission into the Ekiti State University (EKSU) to study the course of your choice. Meanwhile, at this second phase, proper screening and documentations are required which includes presentation of the following documents;
- Original Notification of admission status slip
- Original copies of your credentials ( Both statement of results and certificates),Please note that awaiting results will not be accepted.
- Certificate of Local Government of Origin.
- Birth Certificate or Declaration of Age.
- Letter of recommendation/good conduct from your village head, any responsible member of your community, a civil servant not below Grade level 10 or its equivalence in the private sector.
