McIu Post-UTME Cut-Off Marks
The McIu Post-UTME cut-off mark varies from year to year, depending on several factors like the performance of candidates that year and available admission slots.

To gain admission into McIu, an aggregate score of at least 200 was required from the UTME and Post-UTME scores. The Post-UTME contributed 50% to the aggregate score. For example, if a candidate scored 190 in UTME and 70 in Post-UTME, the aggregate score would be 190 + (70 x 0.5) = 190 + 35 = 225. This means the candidate is eligible for admission.
In conclusion, to maximize my chances of gaining admission into McIu, I had to, first of all, meet the minimum admission requirements. Then I worked to obtain a competitive UTME score above the cut-off mark. Finally, intensive preparation was required to also obtain a good Post-UTME score since it contributes significantly to the aggregate score used for admission. By following these steps, I was able to scale through the admission process successfully.
In conclusion, MCIU has provided extensive details on its post-UTME registration and eligibility criteria to guide prospective candidates.
