Admission Success Tips For JAMB Candidates

Jamb
The new admission procedure in Nigeria has put some students in panic. Scoring a high mark in JAMB is the best way to have hope of admission. JAMB slashed the cut off marks to 120 but that didn't stop top universities like UI, UNILAG, OAU, UNILORIN and UNIBEN from sticking to their usual 200 cut-off mark. If you want to get into one of these top universities, then you are in for some smart work. Scoring 250+ in JAMB is no difficult task. All you need is the right subject combination and your passion. You can not have passion for engineering and decide to study medicine, you will eventually get lost. Here are things to take note of: 1. Identify your passion: Like I said earlier, You can not have passion for engineering and decide to study medicine, you will eventually get lost. You have ...

In an effort to broaden its scope, the West African Examinations Council International Office (WIO) in Lagos, says it was set to re-introduce electronic marking for its tests. The Head of the Office, Mr Adelowo Maliki, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Lagos. According to him, the marking before now was done with some foreign partners based in the United Kingdom. “We started this electronic marking in 2014 through to 2015, only for us to suspend it in 2016, due to high costs as regards the high exchange rate. “But now, we are set to bring it back as we have gotten all necessary approvals from the council’s committee meetings and the council itself. “This led to our trying to develop our own in-house and by the grace of God,

List Of Universities That Accept 120 Cut-Off Mark

Jamb
It's no longer news that few weeks ago, JAMB pegged the cutoff mark for universities at 120 and despite this decision, varsities like Obafemi Awolowo University, University of Lagos, University of Benin and University of Nigeria Nsukka, pegged their cut-off point at 200 and above. Many other Nigerian universities pegged their cut-off points from 120 to 170. With this, candidates who had a relatively low score in JAMB may find it difficult to get a university that'll accept 120 as their cut off mark for admission. So, we don't want people who actually fall into this category to lose hope when it comes to gaining admission into a university this year. During the course of our research, we were able to draw out the list of Nigerian Universities that accept 120 as their cut off marks fo...
