1. Combination of the Subjects of your SSCE (WAEC, NECO, or other)

2. Potential cut-off mark of the course. What this simply mean here is that the special cut-off mark in which your particular course need before one can gains admission into it institution.

Their is different between the cut-off mark and the potential cut-off mark. And what is the difference?
