JAMB Cut off Mark for Pharmacy 2020
Do you wish to know the cut off mark set by JAMB for Pharmacy in Nigerian Universities?
Before we proceed, it is important we inform you that Pharmacy is not studied in all Nigerian Universities, as some schools don’t offer the course. Ensure that you selected an accredited university during your JAMB 2019 registration, you can also do JAMB change of course/ JAMB change of institution.
The usual cut-off mark set by JAMB is 180 for Pharmacy, but not all schools accept this score as some schools like Ahmadu Bello University, University of Benin, University of Ibadan etc. set their Nursing Cutoff mark between 250-270 and above.
If you are applying for admission into such schools you must ensure you have a high JAMB Score.
Other courses like Law, Medicine and Surgery, Nursing are also very competitive and you must also score very high to stand a chance of getting admission into the university of your choice.
Post UTME Cutoff Mark for Pharmacy in all universities
You would already know that to gain admission into any university does not depend on how high you performed in JAMB but also how well you perform in the Post-UTME screening/Exam of your choice institution.

For Universities that conduct post utme, if you are applying for Nursing Science, you must have at least a minimum Post UTME score of 65-70%. This would increase your chances of getting your dream admission this year.
