AAU General Cutoff Mark for Admission

Due to the ongoing Corona virus pandemic that has pinned down almost every sector of the Nigerian Economy, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) held, on the 28th of June 2020, that for 2020/2021 academic session, the general cutoff mark for every university in Nigeria is 160 while polytechnic is 120.

This decision was reached at the end of JAMB 2020/2021 policy meeting with institutions in Nigeria. Below is a confirmation:

Following from that, AAU general cutoff mark for 2020/2021 is 160. But it should also be noted that this figure is not final currently because, the management of AAU is at discretion to increase the cutoff mark for professional course like Law, Medicine etc.

Accordingly, AAU cutoff mark is also one of the requirements to register and participate in AAU post UTME examination. Thus, candidates who did not have up to 160 in 2020, may not be offered admission into AAU this session.

I enjoin you to kindly watch the video below to understand the difference between AAU official cutoff marks and AAU JAMB Cutoff mark

How to calculate AAU Aggregate score

Now that you know the required cutoff marks for all the courses in the prestigious Ambrose Ali University (AAU), i will share with you the steps to calculate your aggregate.

First of all, it is important to note that the above cutoff marks are based on the aggregate of both JAMB and Post UTME screening.

Consequently, if your aggregate is not up to the required cutoff mark for your dream course above, it means that you didn’t meet the university’s cutoff for this year.

Without wasting time, lets look at how you can calculate you AAU aggregate.

To calculate your aggregate, kindly divide your JAMB score by 8, divide your Post UTME score by  2 and add up the results from the two calculations.

Let me give you a practical example:

If Emeka’s JAMB score is 260 and his post UTME score is 60,  below is how to calculate Emeka’s aggregate:

260/8 + 60/2 = 62.5

AAU admission requirements for 2020/2021 academic session (UTME & Direct Entry)

While you are checking the official cutoff mark for admission, it is pertinent to note that AAU does not only consider cutoff marks when offering admission. Thus, to be offered admission into AAU, aspirants must meet the following admission requirements:

  • Candidates must make Ambrose Ali University (AAU) their first choice of institution.
  • Candidates must have at least 5 credits (English and mathematics inclusive) in their O’level result. Your O’level result can be your WAEC, NECO, GCE or NABTEB result.
  • UTME candidates must also take part in the university’s post UTME screening if the examination is said to be conducted.
  • Candidates must have attained the age of 16 to be offered admission into AAU. If you are not up to 16 yet, you will not be offered admission.
  • Candidates must come with a letter of recommendation from the secondary school they graduated.
  • Candidates must also come with a letter of reference written by any reputable person from their community.
  • Failure to do any of this will mitigate your chance of gaining admission into Ambrose Ali University (AAU).
