Before that, lets have a brief look at what Jamb is all about, should we? JAMB (fully pronounced as the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board) is a board which oversees the organization and conduct of the examination for tertiary-level admissions in Nigeria.

Specifically, the examination is described as the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and is conducted for Nigerian aspirants of universities, polytechnics or colleges of education.

It is noteworthy that JAMB also oversees the administering of examinations for candidates of private and public monotechnics in Nigeria. While UTME represents the passport examination for tertiary-level admissions, it is reckonable that UTME applicants are expected to have passed West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) or any alternative examination such as GCE and NECO.

JAMB (CBT) Examination

Precisely regarded as Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), JAMB’s CBT examination is a yearly exercise organized by JAMB in order to evaluate candidates’ eligibility for tertiary education. It is worthy of note that the examination records no less than 1 million candidates every year. For the current year (2020), JAMB registered more than 2 million applicants for the said examination.

The Release of JAMB Results

JAMB results refer to an aggregate of candidates’ performances at any given CBT examination. It is notable that JAMB often releases candidates’ results few hours after their exams.

Admittedly, JAMB results constitute the requirements for candidates’ successful admission into the Nigerian universities/polytechnics of their choice. While 400 is the highest attainable score in a candidate’s JAMB result, 150 is JAMB’s benchmark for university admission with 100 being the benchmark for polytechnics and colleges of education.

However importantly, you should note that several Nigerian universities stipulate 200 as the minimum JAMB score a candidate must attain before being considered for their admissions. Also, admissions into various highly sought after university courses demand special JAMB scores usually fixed by university authorities.

JAMB Exam Centres

JAMB exam centres are the locations (widely spread across Nigeria’s 36 states) specialized for the conduct of JAMB’s examinations. Notably, such locations are generously equipped with the needed facilities for the smooth conduct of JAMB’s CBT exams.
