The Unilag Cut Off Mark 2020/2021 will be completely discussed in this article. University of Lagos(UNILAG) is one of the federal owned institutions in Nigeria and has nothing less than 39000 admission seeking-candidates every academic session due to a lot of reasons apart from the fact that it is located in Lagos State, which appear to be one of the most populous states in Nigeria and around the world, graduates of the University of Lagos are given very significant attention in the labor market (Both in Nigeria and around the globe).
It is no longer news today that most Nigeria students want to seek admission into University of Lagos because of its excellent academic reputation, and for you to be an aspirant of UNILAG, you must have obtained a jamb form and written jamb exam. Meanwhile, you would have seen your jamb score and be eager to know your fate on your jamb result, to know your possibility of becoming a student of UNILAG.
Being an aspirant of UNILAG, the usual question that is frequently asked is;
What is cut off mark, and What are the JAMB & Departmental cutoff Marks for UNILAG Courses?. Let me start taking the questions one after the other.
Now, I will explain this in a simplest way ever that you can understand;
‘Cut off 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 candidate who scores below such mark will not be offered admission. Therefore, it is advisable that any student seeking admission should perform well enough in order to meet up with the school requirement; even preferably to beat the required score in order to improve his/her chances of securing admission into the department their choice.
I am sure you have clearly understood what cut off mark actually means, but despite this explanation, NAIJA SCHOOL ADMISSION is still interested in giving you good example as regard cut off mark, now let’s go;
I shall be sighting two good examples from the perspective of JAMB (Joint admission and matriculation Board) and Departmental cutoff mark.
Example of UNILAG JAMB Cut off;
If the University of Lagos (UNILAG) management says her minimum JAMB score required to study law in UNILAG is 320, and a law aspirant of the school scored 300, 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 320 and above, such candidate will be considered for admission.
I want to believe you now cleared on how what UNILAG jamb cut off means, let’s move on to cutoff mark in the department.
Example of Unilag Cut Off Mark-Departmental;
If the University of Lagos (UNILAG) management says the minimum aggregate point/mark an admission seeking-candidate must make before he/she could be admitted into LAW department is 75 point, and a candidate scored 74 point or less in the departmental aggregate/cutoff mark, such a candidate will not be admitted into the department, but if a candidate scored 75 points and above, such a candidate is eligible for admission and will be admitted to LAW Department because he/she met the departmental requirement.
I know for sure that you have clearly gotten idea of what JAMB (Joint admission and Matriculation Board) and Departmental cutoff mark entails.
In the Previous year (2019 academic session), the jamb cut off mark for admission into UNILAG was 200 and above, which means any candidate who failed to meet up with the cut off mark after he/she has confirmed the jamb score will not be eligible to proceed to the next stage of admission which is the FINAL SCREENING STAGE after which the departmental cut off mark will be made known to the applicants .Same process is applicable for the admission of students into the institution in this year (2020). Therefore you have been updated about the JAMB requirement for admission into UNILAG.
Well, I know you have question like; If I score 200 in my jamb, does that mean I am automatically qualified to be admitted into UNILAG?
To give a sincere response to that question, I can’t guarantee that you are automatically qualified to be admitted into UNILAG until the department you have chosen decides your fate, also please note that UNILAG is a very competitive University. So, there is possibility that a lot of people are likely to score higher than 200 as their jamb score, which means applicants who scored above 200 in JAMB are likely to be given preference for admission over the ones who scored exactly 200.
Obviously, scoring beyond 200 as your JAMB (Joint admission and Matriculation Board) score will surely improve your chances of securing admission into the University.
This will lead us to discussing and giving details of the University of Lagos Departmental Cut off Marks.

Haven seen all the departmental cut off marks, you can now know your fate about the admission, whether you will be admitted into UNILAG or not, depending on the aggregate points you’ve made after the conduction of the first phase screening exercise by the University, which deals with verification of JAMB Score and your O level( WAEC,NECO or NABTEB). I know it would interest you to know what screening exercise means as regard to UNILAG admission and how the screening exercise is Conducted?
Don’t worry yourself at all. That is why NAIJA SCHOOL ADMISSION is HERE. Just follow-up with the next explanation.
Although before the screening exercise is conducted, the management of UNILAG must have notified all aspirants of the school about the screening requirements as well as the date for the screening exercise and all aspirants must follow the procedure accordingly as laid down by the institution. But nonetheless, I shall explain to you how the processes do go.
Fundamentally, let me start by letting you know that; UNILAG conducts its Screening Exercise in two phases. The first phase of the screening exercise goes thus; The JAMB Registration Print out and the O OLevel /SSCE results are the only documents required for the first phase of the screening. In the light of this, I have a little advice for aspirants partaking in this screening exercise, the advices are as follows.
- Do not get to the screening venue less than 40 minutes before the screening starts. The major reason for this tip is because, volumes of admission seeking-candidates are usually much on that day and you may consequently not be given early attention if you get there late. Also to know if there is any new development regarding the screening exercise.
- Make sure your O level/SSCE result (WAEC/NECO or NABTEB) meets the University requirement and also note that any case of awaiting result will not be welcomed.
That is that about the first phase of the screening, the next line of action is the second phase. At this stage, to be eligible for the second screening phase, you must have been admitted into UNILAG to study the course of your choice. However, what is required at this second phase is Proper screening and Documentation. Meanwhile, the required documents include the following.
- Original Copy of your provisional admission slip.
- Original copies of your credentials (Both Statement of results and your Certificates). Please note that awaiting result case will not be considered.
- Certificate of Local Government of Origin.
- Birth Certificate or Declaration of Age.
- Letter of recommendation of your village head, any well-known person I your community with good reputation, a civil servant not below grade level 10 or its equivalence in the private sector.
