NO PUME!!!. ; OFFİCİAL JAMB GRADING SYSTEM FOR 2016/2017 ADMISSION.

Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME), will no longer be required as a pre-condition to gaining admission into Nigerian universities. This was the decision of the Federal Government and stakeholders in education sector, Thursday.

Also, cut off marks for the 2016 admission into universities, polytechnics, colleges of education, was pegged at 180.

The Minister of Education , Malam Adamu Adamu, while declaring open ‎the meeting, argued that if there was absolute confidence in the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, there should be no need for universities to conduct internal examinations to determine the fate of candidates seeking admission.

He said “As far as I am concerned, the nation has confidence in what JAMB is doing, the universities should not be holding another examinations and if the universities have any complain against JAMB, let them bring it and then we address it…

“… But if JAMB is qualified enough to conduct tests and they have conducted test, then there will be no need to conduct another test for students to gain admission…” 

Adamu also ordered JAMB to stop extra charges for change of course, change of school, among others.

Also, According to JAMB, “the new method uses a point system to offer provisional admission to candidates.”

JAMB’s provisional admission no longer makes much sense this year, your points tally will decide your faith. The points are evenly spread out between your O’ Level and JAMB results to provide a level-playing field for all.
