ABIOLA POLYTECHNIC BENCHMARK: The management is yet to compile the complete list of cut off marks for MAPOLY and the departmental cut off points. These are the essential requirements to be met if one is wishing to study in the institution and needs to be admitted into any of these departments.
About the Institution
Moshood Abiola Polytechnic also known as MAPOLY is a tertiary learning institution in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria. The Ojere campus is in the South-Eastern part of Abeokuta, covering about 960 hectares of rolling land bounded by the Ogun River to the south. It is named after Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola, who was elected President of Nigeria in 1993 but prevented from taking office.
The polytechnic was formally established in 1980 as Ogun State Polytechnic during the military administration of Harris Eghagha, but the first set of 220 students was admitted in January 1979. The Polytechnic started on two temporary campuses, Oke-Egunya and Onikolobo, moving to the Ojere campus between April 1985 and March 1988. By the 2017-2018 session, the student population was increased to 20,878, with about 1250 academic and non-academic staff.
Presently, the polytechnic has five schools, each headed by a director, and 21 departments, each headed by a Head of Department. The schools, along with their corresponding departments, are:
- Business & Management Studies (Accountancy, Business Administration, Business & Finance, Office & Technology Management, Marketing)

Cut off Mark 2020
Cut off mark is the mark set by the management, which is considered as the passing or clearing level of the exam to any higher institution.
Cut off varies for different exams, it varies with the availability of vacancies and competition level.
The official JAMB cut off mark for MAPOLY is 120, following the scrapping of Post-UTME by the Federal Government of Nigeria, the JAMB had released a cut off mark of 160 and above for candidates applying for Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges of Education. However, MAPOLY has not released its cut off mark for 2020/2021.
But the question that might be disturbing you remains: what about those that had 120 and above but were not still given the admission to study their desired courses last year?
You have to know this; candidates with higher scores are first considered; in admission basics, candidates with lower scores though might meet the cut off mark of 160 may likely not be admitted. In fact, it is the higher your scores, the higher the chance of being admitted.
