NMU departmental cut off mark

The NMU departmental cut off mark is the final minimum score expected from a candidate to get admission into his/her course of choice at the Nigerian Maritime University Okerenkoko.

This is purely based on the department or course involved. The NMU courses and cut off mark for admission is not static and its influenced by the following;

  1. General Performance:

general performance among candidates aspiring for that course in both the SSCE, JAMB and Post UTME: The better the performance, the higher the department’s admission cut off mark. The final admission cut off mark is derived from the following;

  1. WAEC/NECO/NABTEB GPA (grade points from the relevant O’level subjects).  
  2. Average between the JAMB score and the post utme screening score. 
  3. Admission Quota

Admission quota for the department: Each department has admission quotas allocated by the Nigerian University Commission (NUC). For example, if the admission quota for Medicine and Surgery is 100, the department will not accept any more candidates for admission after the slot is exhausted no matter the candidate’s score. in this case, the university admits candidates based on merit hierarchy (from the best candidate down to where the quota becomes exhausted). Let me just believe you understand me here.
