The page contains Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB) cut off mark and Admission Requirements for 2020/2021 sessions
This page is for those who have written JAMB and have seen their scores. Now, they want to know if their JAMB score meet the cut-off mark of FUNAAB
The second category of people who should visit this page is those who want to know the admission requirements that is how to gain admission into FUNAAB and the required documents for admission.
If you’re yet to write JAMB and you are here looking for JAMB cut off marks for FUNAAB, that is a bad way to failure….. I personally will not recommend that you read this page. But if you’re seeking for admission requirements that’s nice. You can read on how to pass JAMB here
Checking cut-off FUNAAB before you write JAMB will limit your mindset towards aiming high. Assuming FUNAAB cut off mark is 180, your mind will juggle to score above 180. But If you don’t have that mindset of checking UI cut-off, your mind will aim higher because you really don’t know what you are up against
Sometimes war is better than peace. To ignore and ignorance are not the same.

- FUNAAB JAMB Cut-off mark including Departmental cutoff marks

What is FUNAAB cut-off mark 2020?
Permit me to quickly explain what cut off mark is and why universities in Nigeria use it as a yardstick for admission.
Cut off mark is a simple English word which means a designated limit beyond which something cannot function or must be terminated. FUNAAB UTME Cut off mark is the required score from you by the university in order to gain admission to study your desired score. Those who sit for JAMB are called UTME candidates. This simple means JAMB is not the only way for you to gain admission into FUNAAB
While JAMB has the power to set cut off marks for universities, though some schools may have an understanding with JAMB to increase or decrease their cut off marks due to personal school policy. Mind you, Post UTME score is not the same with JAMB UTME score. You may pass JAMB and fail POST UTME.
FUNAAB, JAMB UTME cut off mark is 200 and may change depending on school policy. This cut off is only applicable to some departmental courses in FUNAAB as some may require you to score above. Most often, competitive courses are usually the ones with higher JAMB cut off marks in other to reduce the entrance and overcrowd while the non-competitive courses follow the default cut off mark.
