How To Calculate JAMB Admission Point
The New JAMB Point System is calculated using the candidates O’level result and UTME score.
Phase 1: JAMB Point For O’level:
Note the Following:
- JAMB point for 1 sitting in WAEC/NECO/GCE is Ten (10)
- While The JAMB point for 2 sitting is Two(2)
This means candidates who passed their WAEC or NECO once without combining results have 10 points and also have a better chance of admission.
JAMB Point for O’level Grades
A (A1) = 6 marks,
B (B1, B2, B3) = 4 marks
C (C4, C5, C6) = 3 marks
Sum Up ALL the Points for your O’Level result and State the Total
Next: Add the Total to the Merit Points. For one Sitting, 10 Points or Two Sittings, 2 points
Phase 2: JAMB Point For UTME
The final criteria is your UTME score. The scores are divided into ranges and each ranges are assigned with points that will be using to offer admission. The ranges are;
180-200= 20-23 points,
200-250= 24-33 points,
251-300= 34-43 points
300-400= 44-60 points
Each range in the categories above contains five JAMB results per point.
For example a candidate with 180-185 gets 20 points, while a candidate with 186-190 gets 21 points.
