He added that 57,579 candidates scored between 250 and 299 as against 64,120 in the 2018 results.

Further break down shows that, 366,757 candidates scored between 200 and 249, which he said is a significant improvement from the 2018 results.

361,718 candidates scored between 180 and 199 as against 325,152 in 2018, while 494,484 scored between 160 and 179 as against 455,898 last year.

410,844 candidates scored between 140 and 159 as against 346,825 recorded in 2018 while also 99,463 scored between 100 and 139 as against 64,712 in 2018.

The registrar said that about 1,792,719 candidates sat for the exams, while 34,120 candidates had their results withheld for examination malpractice also 15,145 results were withheld for further clarification.

He mentioned that some of the irregularities that marred the 2019 UTME include; multiple registration, manipulation of biometrics, impersonation and deliberate destruction of power sources during the examination.

He mentioned a case of some one registering 23 times for just a single examination.

He said that the many arrests has been made and so far 116 centres had been delisted for various infractions, saying that 18 of the 116 centres were previously sanctioned by the governing board of JAMB.

He finally assured institutions that the board is committed to sending biometrics and photo details of candidates to the institutions for post UTME.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) during the 2018 JAMB Policy, revealed the category of candidates that are not supposed to partcipate in the Post-UTME Screening exercise.

According to the JAMB Registrar, Candidates who took the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in foreign countries, Candidates who took the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in prisons and finally, blind and deaf candidates should be exempted from writing Post-UTME.

He noted a particular incident last year that a candidate from Ghana was not admitted into University of Ibadan because she did not sit for the Post-UTME Screening of the school.

He mentioned that concerning 2018 Admission exercise, the board and the tertiary institutions are to ensure that this category of candidates, who meet minimum requirements, are admitted, and their progress monitored in the various institutions for the purpose of confirmation of the effectiveness of the policy.


The 2018 Admission Policy Meeting has concluded, and here's what we could gather from the Meeting as regards the JAMB Admission Cut-Off Marks for all Institutions. The JAMB Registrar clarified that these are simply the minimum score any candidate must attain to gain entry into any institution. I think it's fair to still call it the "JAMB Cut-Off Marks".

In actual sense, these are not the actual cut-off marks for direct admissions. So JAMB pointed out that the cut-off marks are actually set by each institution. The cut-off marks are set by each institution, while releasing information on their Post-UTME.

Following what the information from the meeting, we believe they are sticking with last year's cut-off mark. They pretty much sounded like we ought to have known. So basically we expect the JAMB cut-off mark into Universities to be 120, and that for Polytechnics & Colleges to be 100. The minimum score for innovative enterprising institutes would therefore remain at 110.

Basically, the ball is now on the School's Court. A university can either call for students whose JAMB scores are 120, 150, 180, 200, 220, etc, and above. It's totally up to the school. Some schools can even decide to set specific cut-off marks for specific courses. With JAMB CAPS, they can easily weed out candidates who try to violate the instructions.

It is clear that FG & JAMB solidly endorse multi-levels of assessments, thereby endorsing Post-UTME for schools who wish to conduct them. This also means that after Post-UTME are conducted, you can expect Post-UTME Cut-Off Marks from each institution. This would finally be the Ultimate Admission Decider for any Prospective Student.

Now that the 2018 Admission Policy Meeting is over, we should expect schools to start releasing information about their cut-off marks, and application forms for Post-UTME. Ensure you visit this website daily as from today, so you don't miss important information coming from your school of choice.

If however, you are still in doubt about the cut-off your school of choice will set, then you can wait until the Post-UTME is announced by your school of choice.

Wishing you guys all the best.

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, during the JAMB 2018 policy meeting stated the amount institutions are to charge candidates for post-UTME Registration fee.

According to the Minister, the Post-UTME Registration fee should not exceed Two Thousand Naira (N2000).

He noted that last year most institutions even after JAMB fixed the maximum amount that should be charged for Post-UTME Registration still went ahead to charge above that.

He however stated that this time around it will be strictly enforced.

Mr Adamu also said violations of basic guidelines would not be tolerated and any of the institutions head found guilty of misconduct will be dealt with stressing that some heads of tertiary institutions in Nigeria lack integrity in carrying out their jobs..

The question is, will institutions abide to these instructions? And how would defaulting institutions be punished or disciplined?

We're pleased to announce that the Admission Policy Meeting, with JAMB, the Minister of Education and all stakeholders in the sector, has been scheduled to hold on 26th June, 2018.

In the meeting, crucial 2018 admission guidelines, including the determination of the official 2018 Admission Cut-off Marks for various institutions will be determined.

Mr. Fabian Benjamin, the head of Media for JAMB had cautioned institutions that advertised admission into their schools before this meeting, stating that they had breached the constitutional guidelines for admissions. He stated that “a list of institutions that breached this rule are being compiled by the board and to be forwarded to the appropriate body for sanction.”

He added that institutions planning to advertise admission before this policy meeting, should suspend such actions, pointing out that the policy meeting is being held early enough in the year to allow plenty of time for schools to conclude the 2018/2019 Admissions on time.

As it stands, all attention has been focused on June 26th for the official release of Cut-Off Marks for 2018 Admission.

This is to announce to all those still interested in getting the 2018 JAMB Direct Entry form for admissions this 2018/2019, that the closing date has been fixed for 4th June, 2018.

This was announced by Fabian Benjamin, JAMB's Head of Media. He also pointed out that over 140,000 candidates have purchased this form, and so there will be no further extension after the June 4th Deadline.

The fixed deadline will then enable JAMB move forward and plan ahead of the coming admissions for 2018/2019.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, has officially announced the release of the mop up examination held on May 26th, 2018.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB has responded to the call by the House of Reps for reduction in the cost of application forms.

Reacting to this, the Board’s Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin, stated that the amount being collected for application forms from those seeking to sit for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, has not been changed for about 10 years, stressing that the present management of the board has not added N1 to the fee.

He stated that if the Government wants the cost to be reduced, the Board will have no issue with that because since almost what ever is generated is still remitted to the Government; adding that the board under the present Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Ishaq has remmitted a large chunk of the money realised from the sale of forms to the government, above what has been the case in the past 30 years.

He however added that even if the cost of application forms is reduced to N1000 or even N500 that it will not make JAMB to compromise the quality of the examination because the quality of an examination is not a function of money but a function of commitment, dedication, transparency and how committed the staff and management are.

Recall that the House of Reps had yesterday requested the Federal Ministry of Education to direct JAMB to cut down the cost of application forms.


Members of the House of Representatives have asked the Federal Ministry of Education to cut the cost of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) application forms by 50%.

Similarly the House members equally asked the Federal Ministry of Education to equally ensure that the cost of other services like Change of Course and institution form be either free or be reduced to at least N500.

According to James Faleke (APC, Lagos) who proposed the motion, JAMB has become a profit making venture to the detriment of educational and social development of the country.

He reminded the members of the house that JAMB as a government agency is not set up for profit making but to promote educational development of the young citizens in pursuit of their professional careers.

At the end, the house mandated its committee on basic education to ensure compliance and report back in two weeks.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has fixed May 26 for mop-up exam for over 12,000 candidates across the country.

The candidates that are qualified to participate in the rescheduled exam are those whose biometrics were not captured during the initial period of the UTME in March,

Also candidates who are yet to see their results since the end of the examinations in March till date and have not been involved in any form of malpractice, those who were unable to print out their e-slip before the earlier examinations and those whose centres were cancelled for suspected malpractices but were not involved in malpractice will also participate.

Those who were involved and caught in illicit acts and centres where a case of malpractice has been established against them would not partake in the rescheduled examinations.

JAMB had earlier sent email and SMS notifications to candidates who are qualified for the exam. If you are not sure whether or not you are qualified for the rescheduled exam, you can proceed to print your e-slip. If you are qualified, you will be able to print the e-slip showing your exam details.

The printing of exam slip commenced today May 21st, 2018.

The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede has disclosed that at least 1, 178,665 candidates scored 100 and above in the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

He further revelaed that out of 1,840,225 candidates who wrote the examination, only 800,000 had the five credits ordinary level (O’ level) minimum requirements.

He said: “There are 767 tertiary higher institutions in Nigeria and about 560,168 candidates have been admitted. About 20 per cent of the candidates are in SS2, they only took JAMB for trials.”

The JAMB registrar however stated that the involvement of parents in examination malpractice remains a major challenge for the Board as most parents can go to any length to ensure their children pass the examination at all cost. He pointed out cases of parents paying huge amount of money into fraudulent account in order to pave way for their wards.

The candidates complained that all they now see when they try to check their results is, “You do not have any result yet” or “you did not write the examination,” after such results were earlier published.

According to Mr. Benjamin, the board may reschedule the examinations for some whose cases are exceptional  and such candidates will be contacted before then.

He explained that the board was still working to release other results.

The Registrar, Joint Admissions, and Matriculation Board, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, has disclosed that there will be no rescheduling of exam for any candidate like the board did last year.

According to him, “there won’t be any form of rescheduling for anybody, I did that last year out of ignorance.’’
JAMB Will Not Reschedule 2018 UTME For Any Candidate - Registrar

Oyolede said candidates whose thumbs were not recognised for verification by the biometric machines were registered illegally.

He revealed that the board had arrested some operators of illegal UTME registration centres set up to defraud applicants.

It was ghathered that they were using something they call team viewer which will definitely give biometric problem because these candidates were not physically captured at the authentic centre.

JAMB Explains Reason For Delay In Releasing Some Results

According to him, some latest revelations of exam malpractices in some centres have made the board unable to not release some results on Wednesday.

He explained that the board was able to detect, through the use of technology, that most of the cabling issues at CBT centres, were pre-arranged.

“We also have three to four persons who wrote the examinations on the same computer at a session not knowing we have the identity of every computer.’’

Oloyede disclosed that the board had identified 14 centres across the country involved in malpractice and assured that the operators would be prosecuted.

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Examination Board (JAMB) has hinted that it has plans have UTME candidates take the exam from their homes in future.

JAMB Planning To Have Candidates Take UTME From Their Homes In Future

He said that the board is thinking of an open book examination where by candidates can take the exam from the comfort of their homes. Adding that the board will do this once they have the technology.

Commenting on this, An ICT expert, Damilola Oyeshola, said the challenge of IT infrastructure in the country would make the idea of candidates taking the exam from their homes difficult to implement.

n the issue of results, Dr fabian mentioned that once a candidates clicks "Submit" after the exam, the result for that candidate is ready. However, JAMB will have to delay the release so that the results will be previewed before releasing to avoid cancellation of results later.
