FUTA Cut-Off Mark for All Courses 2024/2025: Hello there! Are you searching for the Federal University of Technology Akure’s cut-off marks for the 2024/2025 academic session, both general and departmental? Great news, you’re in the right place!  

FUTA Cut-Off Mark for All Courses

When it comes to higher education, the aim isn’t just to meet the cut-off; it’s to beat it. This is especially true if you’re planning to attend the Federal University of Technology Akure, a school renowned for its academic rigour.

See the cut-off mark as your starting point, not your end goal. Meeting it is just the basic requirement; exceeding it shows you’re up for the academic rigours ahead and gives you an edge over other applicants. FUTA looks for highly intelligent students, not just students who do the bare minimum.

In this post, we’ll talk about why it’s crucial to aim higher than just the cut-off and give you all the info on the general and departmental cut-off marks.

Let’s dive right in! Ever heard of the Quota System? No? Alright, let me break it down for you because it’s crucial to understand why you need to go above and beyond, not just meet the cut-off.

What is the Quota System?

The quota system is a policy in Nigerian universities that regulates the number of students admitted annually and into each department. 

Why Exceed the Requirements?

Here’s the thing: aim to go beyond the basic requirements for your desired course. For instance, if you need at least five credit passes in your O-levels, aim for distinctions. 

The same goes for the cut-off mark. If it’s 200 for your course, aim for something like 230 or higher. Now you might wonder, “Why aim higher?” Well, let’s say your department can only admit 200 students based on merit, and 2000 candidates applied. If you scored exactly 200, but 500 others scored 230 or more, you’ll likely be left out. That’s how the quota system works.

I hope you understand this!

Meaning of Cut-Off Mark

Cut-off mark is a term that not everyone is familiar with. This is a question that most applicants have ( what is the meaning of the cut-off mark). If you fall into this category, you’re not alone; a large group of people falls into this category as well. Well, I will explain it to you here.

What does the term “Cut-off mark” mean? A cut-off mark is a score established by a specific institution as a criterion for admitting students to a particular department of study. This score is usually accredited to candidates based on their performance in a particular examination. However, students who have scored pretty much above the required Cut-Off mark will be given admission and preferentially treated in the admission process above those who just scored the exact Cut-Off mark.

This is the minimum score that a student must achieve to be admitted to a school. If your score falls below a school’s cut-off mark, you won’t be able to register for their Post-UTME, which means you won’t be admitted to that school. Even if your score is 179, you will not be able to register for the Futa screening exercise/post utme because their general cut-off mark is 180.

Each school is free to set its own cut-off Mark. They are, however, unable to impose a cut-off mark lower than the JAMB minimum.

Futa Departmental Cut-off Mark 2024/2025

The departmental cut-off mark is the minimum score required for admission to a school’s course or department. Futa, for example, has a general cut-off mark of 180, but aggregate Departmental cut-off marks of 47.5, 74.37, and 69 for Agricultural Extension and Communication Technology AEC, Electrical & Electronics Engineering EEE,  and Computer Science CSC respectively. The more competitive the course, the higher the Cut-off Mark. Every year, each university sets a cut-off mark for all courses. Some departments publish their departmental cut-off marks, whereas others do not.

So, every candidate that chose FUTA in their last Jamb is expected to score a minimum of 180 to be eligible to apply for the post utme form and have a chance to qualify for admission. Failure to score 180 is an automatic disqualification.
