If your JAMB score is below 200, then you cannot attend these Universities
If you scored less than 200 in the last Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, then you need to read this article to the end.
In a statement signed by JAMB’s spokesperson, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, on Monday (June 22, 2020) in Abuja, JAMB made it clear that some universities will not offer admission to candidates that score less than 200.
They include: University of Lagos (UNILAG), University of Ibadan (UI), Covenant University (CU), Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) and University of Benin (UNIBEN).
The JAMB spokesperson also listed higher institutions that will not admit candidates that scored less than 180 in its Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) this year.
“For the 2020 admission exercise, for example, no candidate with a UTME score of 209 can be considered for admission into any programme at PAU whose minimum UTME score is 210.
“Also, no candidate with a UTME score of 199 can be admitted into any of the following universities whose minimum score is 200: OAU, UI, CU, UNILAG and UNIBEN.
“No candidate with a score less than 180 can be admitted into many of the universities including Lagos State University (190); Afe Babalola University (180), Nigerian Army University, Biu (180); University of Jos (180), University of Abuja (180), Redeemers University (180), University of Ilorin (180), Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria (180), Bayero University Kano (180), Alex Ekwueme University (180) and PAMO University of Medical Sciences, Port Harcourt (180),” Fabian said.
He also warned that high scores in UTME might not be enough to secure admissions.
According to Fabian, institutions were at liberty to decide their own cut-off points, based on certain conditions approved by JAMB.
Other parameters such as Post-UTME/post-A/L qualifications screening/test score; O/L grade score, etc will be used.
Please, you’re advised to do a change of institution before it is too late. Good luck.
