What is Usman Danfodio University cut-off mark?

Every university has its set cut-off point that you need to meet in order to successfully pass the screening exercises and become a student of this university. Many school graduates and young people who wish to pursue education are interested in cut off marks for different universities.

Usman Danfodio University in Sokoto, popularly called UDUSOK, took its start in 1975. Formerly it was known as University of Sokoto. Later, it was renamed after the founder of Sokoto caliphate. This higher educational institution is one of the most famous and influential in northern Nigeria. It calls itself “the most peaceful university in the country.”

Last year, UDUSOK cancelled its post-UTME tests. This means there was no UDUSOK post-UTME cut off mark, and the admission was decided by the other factors. JAMB has given a mark of 180 and higher for those students who are applying for different higher educational institutions. Therefore, the Usman Danfodio University followed the rules of JAMB, since its minimal cut-off mark is 180.

Meeting the 180 point is necessary. However, it does not by any means guarantee you that you will instantly become a student.
