State Universities in Nigeria and their Cut Off Marks

The Joint admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is the body responsible for setting the cut off marks for universities to follow. In 2019, the cut off mark for state universities was 160 and we believe it will still be the same this year, 2020.

However, some state universities set their own unique cut off marks for some competitive courses like Law, Medicine and surgery, various engineering courses, etc. So if you are writing JAMB UTME with the hope of gaining admission to study your choice course, please read very well so that you can pass well too.

Frequently asked Questions About State Universities in Nigeria

What is a state University?

State universities are those public universities in Nigeria that are basically funded by the government at the state level. Considering that these universities are funded by the state government, the affairs of the state universities are overseen by the state government as well.

What is the Difference between State University and Federal University?

This is another question that so many people ask. The major difference between state universities and Federal universities is that state universities are managed by the state government while Federal universities are managed by the Federal government.

As a result of the above difference, it should not surprise you to know that state universities are far more expensive than federal universities in terms of tuition and other fees. so if you are in search of a cheap university to attend, go for the Federal universities as they are relatively cheaper.

How many State Universities do we have in Nigeria?

From the above list, you can see that as at the time of publishing this article, there are fifty two State universities in Nigeria. However, you have to know that the list can change tomorrow as more state universities are created.

So, as it stands, we have fifty two (52) state universities in Nigeria and all, as listed above are accredited by the NUC.
