KNUST Admissions Cut Off Points for 2022/2023

KNUST Admissions Cut Off Points for 2022/2023
The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology(KNUST) announced on April 11, 2022, that it has opened the sale of application forms to prospective undergraduate students.

The acquisition of application forms is not enough unless one has taken a close look at the KNUST’s admissions cut-off points for 2022/2023.

It is a popular fact that admission slots at the Kumasi-based institution are highly competitive compared to elsewhere. A reckless choosing of academic programmes may have one missing out on preferred programmes.

The cut-off points serve as a guide how one makes choices of preferred programmes given the capability to attain the aggregate. The system reinforces the saying, “cut your coat according to your size”. Hence, the system encourages you to select programmes you believe you can make the grades easily.

Here at Everydaynewsgh.com, we want to be with you every step of the way; from the application process to the time of admission. This is why we have compiled the list of all programmes the University’s six colleges;

  • College of Agriculture and Natural Resources
  • College of Humanities and Social Sciences
  • College of Engineering
  • College of Art and Built Environment
  • College of Science
  • and College of Health Sciences offers and their respective cut-off points.

Besides these, KNUST has the Obuasi Campus, which offers academic programmes too.

But before we dig deep into the university’s cut-off points, we shall take a look at the various programmes under each of the six colleges to apprise ourselves of what each stands for.
