Nigerian Institute of Leather and Science Technology 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 NILEST 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 NILEST 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 NILEST, 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 120. However, NILEST is at liberty to fix their minimum admission cut off mark at 120 and above. For example, the cut off mark for NILEST is 120 and above except for computer science and Science Laboratory Technology. This simply means that candidates that register NILEST as their preferred choice of polytechnic must have scored at least 120 and above to be eligible to purchase NILEST 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 NILEST 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?
- I got 120 in JAMB; can I be admitted into NILEST?
- What score must I get to study Computer Science in NILEST?
- What is NILEST cut off mark for 2022/2023 academic session
Sometimes candidates who scored 120, 130, 150, and above ask if they are eligible to study Computer Science, SLT, Industrial Chemical & Processing Technology or any of the courses offered in NILEST. Please note that with the courses and cut off mark available here today, you will know by yourself if you are qualified for admission into NILEST. I will be listing the approved NILEST course and minimum JAMB cut off mark you are supposed to score to be eligible for Post UTME at the NILEST.
In your search for admission, please note that choosing NILEST 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 NILEST 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 NILEST even though all candidates who score 120 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.
With the above information at your disposal, I can assure you that you will gain admission into NILEST with ease. Most candidates fail to acknowledge the fact that a low JAMB score decreases their chances except candidates who are listed among the Educationally Less Developed States.
NILEST cut off mark is quite high, that is, it is not easy to score up to 120 in your JAMB unlike other Federal schools with the same standard as NILEST who still have their minimum cut off mark as 120.
Below I have listed all courses offered in NILEST as well as NILEST JAMB cut off mark in a tabular format for proper understanding by both first-time candidates and candidates who have attempted JAMB in the past.
