Names of School that Accept Low JAMB Score (140, 150, 160, 180) for Admissions

If you’re wondering to know  the list of Universities that accept Low JAMB scores from 120 to 180, I’ve got you covered. I am going to provide the list of Universities that accept Low JAMB score this year’s academic session, Below is a list of universities and polytechnics that might accept low JAMB scores for admission in the 2023/2024 session.

Many students start looking for schools that accept lower JAMB scores, like 100, 120, 130, and so on, after the JAMB results are out. This is especially important for those who may not reach the higher cut-off marks set by some institutions.

Knowing which schools accept low JAMB performance scores from 120 to 180 can be crucial during JAMB registration. If you don’t meet the cut-off mark for your preferred school, you may need to consider changing your course or institution.

Please it’s important to note the following below:

The schools listed below accepted cut-off marks between 100 to 180 in previous years. However, this doesn’t guarantee they will maintain the same cut-off marks this year. They might increase or decrease them.

I’ve updated the list as a guide, but keep an eye on these schools in case they maintain similar cut-off marks this year. I’ll update this article once schools start releasing this year’s cut-off marks, providing a fresh list of universities and polytechnics that accept 120 to 180 cut-off marks.
