Admission into any Nigerian university, especially a top-notch institution like ZAMSU, requires you to be well-informed.

In this guide, I will provide helpful answers surrounding ZAMSU post UTME to ensure you have a smooth admission process.

I understand how nervous prospective undergraduates like you can be, but you don’t have to fret! Read on.


When will ZAMSU release the 2023 post-UTME result?

ZAMSU will release the 2023 post-UTME results before the end of November 2023. The university has yet to announce an official date for the release of the results. However, going by previous years’ trends, admission seekers should expect the results to be out the last week of November.

Once released, candidates can access their results directly on the university’s admission portal. You will need the registration details used in creating your profile before you can log in and view your scores.

How can I check my ZAMSU POST UTME result?

To check your ZAMSU POST UTME result, simply follow these easy steps:

  1. Visit Admission Portal: Go to on your browser.
  2. Login: Key in your username and password to login to your dashboard
  3. View Result: Click on “Check Admission Status” to view your POST UTME score.

So relax, your result will be easy to access in a few days.

What is the cut-off mark for ZAMSU POST UTME?

The cut-off mark for ZAMSU POST UTME is 180. This means you need to score at least 180 in the POST UTME exam to be eligible for admission into ZAMSU.

However, scoring exactly 180 does not guarantee you will be offered admission. The cut-off mark only qualifies you to participate in the next stage of the admission process. ZAMSU bases its final admission on merit and on the number of vacancies available per department.

Can I still gain admission if I score below the cut-off mark?

Yes, you can still gain admission if you score below 180. ZAMSU has the authority to lower the cut-off mark to 160 or even less based on the general performance recorded in the POST UTME.

So if you score around 160 or a high 150, there is still a good chance you may be offered admission into your desired course. Nonetheless, ensure you choose ZAMSU as your institution of first choice.

Does ZAMSU send post-UTME results to candidates via SMS?

Unfortunately, ZAMSU does not send post-UTME results to candidates via SMS. You will have to log in to the school’s admission portal to see your scores using the details created during registration.

Many universities nowadays allow students to access their admission status and post-UTME results right from their dashboard without having to wait for SMS notifications.

What are the requirements for admission after POST UTME?

  • Score up to the POST UTME cut-off mark
  • Must participate in the POST UTME screening exercise
  • Meet five O’level credit requirements for your desired course of study
  • Pass the POST UTME exam
