KNUST Cut Off Points – What is it?

The Kwame Nkrumah University of Technology Cut off point is a set point for each course a prospective student wants to study.

Achieving a mark below the cut off point means the student will never get accepted for the particular course.

Each course has its own cut off point and so therefore if a student could not get admission to study a specific course, they can always apply to a lower cut off point course and get admission.
