Gateway Polytechnic, Saapade, JAMB cut off mark for all courses that are offered in the polytechnic has been released by the school authority in accordance with JAMB’s directive. Before the management and school authority of GAPOSA fix their minimum cut off mark, it has to be in line with that of JAMB’s approved cut off mark for the academic session. JAMB does not fix GAPOSA cut off mark, however they (JAMB) peg a fixed admission cut off point every academic session that no polytechnic must go below, that is, in the case of GAPOSA, they must not go below the ceiling placed for fixing of cut off marks.
This academic session, JAMB fixed the general cut off mark for all Polytechnic as 140. However, GAPOSA is at liberty to fix their minimum admission cut off mark at 140 and above. For example, the cut off mark for GAPOSA is 140. This simply means that candidates that register GAPOSA as their preferred choice of polytechnic must have scored at least 140 and above to be eligible to purchase GAPOSA post UTME form and apply for admission into their selected course. JAMB’s duty is to regulate and give admission to deserving candidates who meet GAPOSA cut off mark and passed the Post UTME test.
Oftentimes candidates seeking admission are confused as to what is the best JAMB score for their course which results to questions like?

In your search for admission, please note that choosing GAPOSA as your 1st choice of polytechnic in your UTME registration is the first step to gaining admission because the school would give consideration to candidates that selected GAPOSA as their first choice of polytechnic before considering other choices if need be.
Again, candidates with higher JAMB score are at advantage of gaining admission into GAPOSA even though all candidates who score 140 and above are given equal opportunities to sit for the post UTME because after calculating their aggregate score or weighted average, candidates with higher JAMB scores tend to score higher because of their UTME scores gives an edge when calculating their average cut off mark over candidates with low UTME scores. So, it is advised you try as much as possible to score high in your JAMB and Post UTME to give you a better chance of studying your preferred course.
