General Cut-Off Criteria

The management of EKSU has declared that candidates who opted for EKSU during their UTME registration and scored 140 and above in the last UTME are eligible for Post UTME screening. Scoring below this benchmark disqualifies candidates from participating in the EKSU Post UTME exercise.

  • Nursing: 220
  • Law: 240
  • Medicine (MBBS): 250

Candidates scoring below these cut-off marks in these specific courses have the option to apply for Post UTME screening for other courses. It is crucial to update this change on the JAMB CAPS portal to be considered for admission.

Alternative Admission Routes

In addition to the traditional UTME route, EKSU also accepts JUPEB scores with a minimum of 7 points for admission. However, please note that the university does not accept IJMB scores.
