Ritman University, Ikot Ekpene cut off mark for all courses that are offered in the institution has been released by the school authority in accordance with JAMB’s directive. Before the management and school authority of Ritman University fix their minimum cut off mark, it has to be in line with that of JAMB’s approved cut off mark for the academic session. JAMB does not fix Ritman University cut off mark, however they (JAMB) peg a fixed admission cut off point every academic session that no institution must go below, that is, in the case of Ritman University, they must not go below the ceiling placed for fixing of cut off marks.

This academic session, JAMB fixed the general cut off mark for all universities (Federal, state and private universities in Nigeria) as 160. However, universities are at liberty to fix their minimum admission cut off mark at 160 and above. For example, the cut off mark for Ritman University is 140. This simply means that candidates that register Ritman University as their preferred choice of institution must have scored at least 140 and above to be eligible to purchase Ritman University post UTME form and apply for admission into their selected course. JAMB’s duty is to regulate and give admission to deserving candidates who meet Ritman University cut off mark and passed the Post UTME test.

Oftentimes candidates seeking admission are confused as to what is the best JAMB score for their course which results to questions like?
