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,
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...

Nigerians are exceptional and wherever you find them, they shine like diamonds in the sky. Some Nigerians are studying at the Bowie State University, in the State of Maryland, U.S. and the school has good testimonies. About 1,000 Nigerian students are in the tertiary institution and about 100 are international students while 900 are residents. Professor Cosmas Nwokeafor is a Nigerian and he is the Dean of the institution's Graduate School. He told the News Agency of Nigeria that the institution has been blessed by Nigerian students. “Most of our Nigerian students are majoring in Computer Science and Organisational Communications and many other programmes. “And Nigerians have actually performed very well and I can tell you because I’ve been in this university for 25 years.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has defended the pegging of 120 as minimum cut-off marks for university admission. The decision, which was reached at a stakeholders’ policy meeting in Abuja, has generated controversy with many universities rejecting the marks. JAMB’s Head of Information Dr. Fabian Benjamin, in a statement yesterday in Abuja, said the board would not be deterred and would continue to support policies that would bring Nigeria’s education out of the woods. He explained that previous cut off marks were never strictly followed by most institutions. Dr. Benjamin said most universities failed to fill their admission quota in the last 10 years. The statement reads: “The much trending controversy over the just released cut off marks for 2017 admis
Report from the ongoing JAMB policy meeting indicates that JAMB has introduced the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) which is geared towards ensuring quality control, transparency and credibility of the admission process. According to a participant, the new policy is expected to make provision for a ‘market place’ in the JAMB portal where institutions can go and ‘request for students in Nigeria who score their cut off points.’ These institutions will write to JAMB to request for the students and also give them (students) three days to respond. Also, only three universities can request for a candidate if the policy is adopted. The new policy is also expected to allow institutions in Nigeria peg their cut off point after meeting with their respective senates. What JAMB C
