    1. The general cut off mark is 40%. However, departments are at will of increasing their cut-off marks especially where competitive (there are high number of candidates). As of writing this, names of eligible candidates have already being sent to the various departments after which there will be another written and/or oral interview before the final selection. Therefore, it is best to know the cut-off mark for the department in which you applied to so as to take timely and necessary action such as changing to another preferred course with a moderate cut-off mark should you not be able to meet the cut off mark of your initial course applied to to avoid waste of time and money.
