The Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida University (IBBU) in Lapai, nestled in the heart of Niger State, Central Nigeria, is a prestigious institution that attracts a myriad of students year after year. With the 2023/2024 academic session on the horizon, the university’s management has unveiled its official cut-off mark, setting the stage for the forthcoming admission exercise.
Understanding the Cut-off Mark at IBBU
For those unfamiliar, the cut-off mark is a benchmark score in the UTME, determining a candidate’s eligibility for the subsequent screening and admission process. Meeting or surpassing this score enhances one’s chances of securing admission, whereas falling short renders one ineligible for the post-UTME screening exercise.
For the upcoming 2023/2024 academic session, IBBU has set the minimum cut-off mark at 150. This implies that candidates must have achieved a score of at least 150 in their UTME to be considered for admission into the various degree courses on offer at the university.
