JAMB fixed cut-off
As at many other Nigerian institutions, Ahmadu Bello University admission level is 180. It should be noted that obtaining such a mark is not at all an excuse for relaxation. Minimal grade can’t guarantee you 100% enrollment. Selection of students is conducted on a competitive basis. Stronger candidates may move your candidacy aside. You must show yourself in the best light. So we recommend preparing well and striving for the maximum possible result.
