How to Calculate 2016 JAMB UTME Admission Points.

The JAMB point system is the new system in which Nigerian Universities and all tertiary institutions in the country would use to grant provisional admission to successful UTME candidates, after which they will then be invited for screening. Therefore candidate who are seeking admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria are advised to carefully study the new point systems carefully as this new system is being used to replace Post UTME screening exercise.

How to Calculate 2016 JAMB UTME Admission Points

The New JAMB Point System is calculated using the candidates O’level result and UTME score.

JAMB Point For O’level:

The JAMB point for 1 sitting is 10

While The JAMB point for 2 sitting is 2

This means candidates who passed their WAEC or NECO once without combining results have 10points 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

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

Also note that each ranges category contains five JAMB results per point. For example a candidate with 180-185 gets 20 points, while a candidate with 186-190 gets 21points.
