JAMB Uses Point System Option For 2016 Admission
Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB has adapted a new method called the Point System Option for the guidelines for the 2016 admission process.
This method was adopted after a meeting the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB had with universities and other tertiary institutions.
The JAMB guild lines for the 2016 admission process is based on point system.
According to the guild line, before any candidates is considered for screening, the candidates must have been offered a provisional admission by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB.
In a statement issued by Jamb, its says, “Jamb provisional admission depends on the points tally and that will decide the faith of the individual”.
The point system method is evenly spread between the O’Level and JAMB result of the candidates.
“Any candidates who submits one result containing his/her relevant courses will get 10 points but any candidates who submits two results gets 2 points.
Another point consideration is the UTME scores, candidates with equivalent points of 180 to 200 gets 20-23 points, candidates with 200 to 250 gets 24-33 points and so on.
JAMB added that if an institution declares its cut off mark for Medicine as 90points and the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB grants such student with 250 a provisional admission but the candidates points falls short of the 90 points, that candidates will lose the admission.
