Ahmadu Bello University, ABU Zaria Post UTME Scores

Before we inform the general public and all interested candidates of the post UTME cut off mark for these courses like Law, Engineering, Medicine, Accounting,Pharmacy or any other department we should at least know the total score obtainable in ABU.

ABU Zaria post UTME will also test you on the core four UTME subjects combination you wrote during your UTME. So, the test is almost similar to the JAMB exam.

ABU Post UTME is calculated all over 400. So whatever you get during the screening is out of total scores of 400 marks. Whether the candidate scored  up to 300 or 210, its out of 400 points.

Cut off Marks  For All Departments/Courses

All candidates who wish to be considered for admission into Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, the University will add your UTME score with your post UTME score then divide it by 2.

For example, if your score is 260 in UTME, and you scored 240 in ABU post UTME screening.

The next thing to happen is that the University management will add your two score 260 Plus 240 = 500

Then it will be 500 divided  by 2 to get your aggregate score to be considered for admission into the university.

Also note that before you can be considered for admission into any course in ABU, you have to meet the cut off mark for that particular department and the course you applied for.
