ISSUES TO NOTE
– The list of candidates that have scored above the minimum cut-off mark, and are NOT admitted may be forwarded to other institutions that need them for consideration. Especially their Second (2nd) Choice institutions of preferences.

The rules:
1. Screening of candidates shall be for those offered Provisional Admissions only.
2. No written examination to be conducted.
3. Verification of Course Requirements (O levels or A levels).
4. Verification of valid JAMB results by checking
i.Online Result Slip
ii.Printout
iii.Provisional Admission Letter
iv.Photo Album
v.Check list
vi.Biometrics
vii. Before a candidate can seat be considered for screening, he/she must have been given provisional admission by Jamb.
viii. Institutions are free to source from other Course(s) to compensate for SHORTFALL in any of the criteria.

Guideline 3: The Point System
This is the most important part of the new process. The points are evenly spread out between your O’level and Jamb results to provide a level playing field for all. In the first case, any candidate who submits only one result which contains his/her relevant subjects already has 10 Points, the exam could be NECO, WAEC, GCE etc, but any candidate who has 2 sittings only gets 3 Points. So this means that aspirants with only one result are at an advantage but only just.

The next point grades fall into the O’level grades. Each grades has it’s equivalent point, A=6 marks, B=4 marks, C=3 marks, so the better your grades the better your chances.
The next point is the UTME scores. Each score range has its equivalent point which can be summarized thus, 180-200=20-23 marks, 200-250=24-33 points, 251-300=34-43, 300-400=44-60 points. Each categories contains 5 Jamb results per point added, for example a candidate with 180-185 gets 20points, a candidate with 186-190 gets 21 points etc.

Points system for Direct Entry is yet to be released.
– Schools might still charge screening fees, this depends on the school.
– Catchment and ELDS will still be used!

  • What of if I didn't upload my 0'level result while registering for jamb, and I have the result already but due to the situation that I didn't take my o'level result with me then, Can I still upload it again to jamb site???

    1. Sam, it is the school that will use your O'level to calculate your admission points. Wait for the directives from your school if your result is now ready.

  • Muhamned

    Hmmmm, my fellow aspirant. dis policy na die ooooo, I just av one question, what is De minimum point cos from De analysis done by me I scored 53 point. na Bayero University course Accounting. pls scholars I need answer.

  • Abugu Nebuwa

    That's a good one. As Jamb has reduced exam malpractices considerably,it would have been unwise to allow universities conduct a post UTME exam.

  • This is not funny, again oh!
