JAMB 2024/2025 Cut Off Mark For Medicine and Surgery

Securing admission into Medicine and Surgery programs in Nigerian universities is highly competitive. Here’s JAMB 2024 cut-off marks for Medicine and Surgery across various institutions in Nigeria.

Cut-off mark is the least mark that JAMB requires a candidate to have before qualifying to enter a particular course. Such a mark is likely to be higher in the case of competitive courses like Medicine and Surgery, because many students do apply for this course.


For Medicine and Surgery, the cut-off mark is typically set at 250 but individual universities can set higher cut-off marks based on competitiveness and slot availability. Medicine and Surgery, being one of the most competitive programs, typically requires higher scores.

Most universities in Nigeria, in addition to the JAMB examination, further screen their students by means of their screening examination called the Post-UTME (Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination).

This is another screening test to pick the very best students for very competitive courses like Medicine and Surgery. Doing very well in the Post-UTME is equally important and can significantly boost a student’s chances of gaining admission.
