Jamb new guidelines 2019/2020 has been formulated by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

The new guidelines for admission process were made by Jamb website following consultations with universities and other tertiary institutions in the country.

The new admission process would work for candidates who wrote the examination and direct-entry, with the board explaining that universities would collect screening fees from candidates at the end of the admission process.

  5. There will be adequate security with a minimum of five technical personnel and a network engineer on site.
  6. Availability of backup power supply (power generating set of a minimum of 40KVA for a centre with 250 systems) and UPS/inverters that can carry all systems for a minimum of two hours.
  7. All the centres should have a minimum of 250-capacity reception facility such as canopy with chairs.
  8. All the centres’ premises must be enclosed and must have adequate and functional air-conditioners. The centres must also have lighting, up-to-date antivirus and minimum of Windows 7, among others.

Who is eligible for Jamb screening?

According to Jamb, “Before a candidate can be considered for screening, he/she must have been given provisional admission by JAMB. The JAMB admission checker portal is going to be opened soon for this process, so praying is all you can do now.”

JAMB stated that the point system where admission would depend on the point tally of the candidate means: “JAMB’s provisional admission no longer makes much sense this year, your points tally will decide your faith.

“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 two sittings only gets two points. So, this means that aspirants with only one result are at an advantage but only just.”

O”level scores and their interpretations

The better a candidates grades in O’level results the higher the marks allocations. See the interpretation below

A – 6 marks

B – 4 marks

C – 3 marks.

Also, see the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) scores and their interpretation during the admission process.

A candidate with 180 – 200 will be allocated 20 – 23 points. This also means that a candidate with 180 – 185 gets 20 points, a candidate with 186 – 190 gets 21 points, stating further that the point system for direct entry will be released soon just as fees would still be charged for screening which has replaced the post UTME.

A candidate with 251 – 300 will be allocated 24 – 33 points

A candidate with 300 – 400 will be allocated 44-60 points as well as five JAMB results per point added.
