Admission cut off marks are usually determined by competitive courses, that is, departments with the highest population tend to have highest cut off marks, departments such as mass communication, Accountancy, Business Administration and Engineering are competitive courses which make the cut off marks to be high. If you didn’t meet up with the 2022/2023 cut of marks, there are just three (3) things that you should do.

You should apply for change of course to a department that is below your UTME Score as with this you may be considered for Admission. Please take note that applying for change of course does not in any way guarantee that you will be offered admission to Federal Polytechnic Ilaro rather it is 50/50 that is, you may be considered for admission or otherwise. Before you change your course make sure you check the polytechnic website for the correct subject combination for your course. 

For example if you initially applied for  Computer science and you didn’t qualify and now you want to switch to Music Technology, you need to understand that the subject combination for music Technology at O’level and UTME differs so don’t just rush to change course make sure you confirmed that you qualified for the course you want to change to in terms of subject combination, that is, admission requirements and the cut off Mark.
