JAMB Point System: In this Article you will know How to Calculate JAMB/Post UTME Admission Screening Scores for All Universities
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, last year approved a new JAMB/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 StudentsNG Team wishes to enlighten candidates and the general public on how to calculate Post-UTME admission screening scores with their O’level resuts (WAEC & NECO respectively).
Below is the step to calculate Post UTME Screening Score
1. UTME Examination questions will vary per candidate.
2. Candidates who score above 250 will gain merit admission by JAMB into the institution of choice.
3. 2017 JAMB CBT will last 3 years for candidates with a score of 200 and above
4. Scholarship may be awarded to candidates with a score of 280 and above in various institutions for a 4-year degree program.
Post UTME Screening System
O Level Result:- 40%
UTME SCORES -60%
180-189 = 10%
190-199 = 20%
200-209 = 30%
210-219 = 40%
220-229 = 50%
230 & Above = 60%
Example, Michael wrote WAEC and these are 5 subject scores he will use;
Mathematics = B2
English = A1
Physics = C4
Chemistry = B3
Biology = C5
This meas that his scores are:
Mathematics = 7%
English = 8%
Physics = 5%
Chemistry = 6%
Biology = 4%
Total = 30%
Lets in his JAMB, he scored 217.
217 falls under 40%.
His POST UTME Score will therefore, be;
His total WAEC Score percentage plus His JAMB Score percentage. Given:
30% + 40% = 70%.
