…Jamb Point System : Calculations Fo All Schools Post UTME Admission Scores Below :
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, last year approved a new Post-UTME admission screening system for all candidates seeking admission into various tertiary institutions in Nigeria. It was called JAMB Point-System.
This was necessary following the scrapping of Post-UTME test by the Ministry of Education. It is now expected that the new admission screening system will take full effect during the 2017/2018 academic session admission exercise.
Now, following the conclusion of the 2017 JAMB UTME exam, we at UNN INFO wish to enlighten candidates and the general public on how to calculate Post-UTME admission screening scores with their O’level resuts (WAEC & NECO respectively).
Before we start, take note of the following information about 2017 JAMB UTME;
- UTME Examination questions will vary per candidate.
- Candidates who score above 250 will gain merit admission by JAMB into the institution of choice.
- 2017 JAMB CBT will last 3 years for candidates with a score of 200 and above
- Scholarship may be awarded to candidates with a score of 280 and above in various institutions for a 4-year degree program.
