UNIMAID Orientation

UNIMAID Cut-Off Marks for Admission 2024/2025 academic session has been released: The University of Maiduguri UNIMAID cut-off mark is based on merit and catchment area benefits.

The new cut-off mark is for all 2022 Joint Admission and Matriculation  Board (JAMB) Candidates who sat for the just-concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

UNIMAID 2024/2025 Cut off Mark 

Following the scrapping of post-UTME by the federal government, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) had given a benchmark of 160 and above for candidates applying for Universities, Polytechnics, and Colleges of Education.

Hitherto, the University of Maiduguri has followed suit in the 160 general cut-off mark of JAMB.

You might ask questions like I had 160 and above but was not still given admission to study my desired course.

Candidates with higher scores are first considered; in admission basics, candidates with lower scores though might meet the cut-off mark of 160, may not be admitted. The higher your scores, the higher the chance of being admitted.

UNIMAID 2024/2025 Departmental Cut-off Mark

The University of Maiduguri does not really have a specific cut-off mark for courses.

However, candidates who have scored a minimum of 160 in the UTME examination are eligible to apply for admission into any of their choice courses.

Due to the high number of students wishing to study at the University of Maiduguri, the admission process is competitive, and admission is given based on JAMB scores and O-level grades.

Candidates MUST meet the minimum UTME scores for their chosen courses, have the right UTME subject combinations as prescribed in the jamb brochure, and have the requisite ‘O’ Level subjects at credit level.
