JAMB Officially Drops Cut-off Mark for 2016 Admission and Adopts Point System Option

JAMB has finally ditched the allocation of cut off-marks for admissions into tertiary institutions in Nigeria, the guideline for the 2016 admission process released on Monday evening has shown.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced the release of its guidelines for the 2016 admissions’ process.

The method, described as the point system option, was adopted after an extensive one-week meeting JAMB had with universities and other tertiary institutions’ administrators in the country.

According to the guidelines contained in a statement placed on its website on Monday night, JAMB said that the modalities were going to be based on point system.

While explaining how the admission process would work for Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination candidates and direct entry students, the organisation stated that universities were going to charge fees for screening of candidates at the end of the process for admission.

According to JAMB, the new method uses a point system to offer provisional admission to candidates.

“Before a candidate can be considered for screening, he/she must have been offered a 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 said.

The second process, it said, was the point system where admission would depend on the point tally of the candidate.

The statement said, “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, WASSCE, November/December WASSCE etc, but any candidate who has two sittings only gets 2 points. So this means that candidates with only one result are at an advantage but only just.”

The organisation added that the “next point grades fell into the O’ Level grades where each grade would have it equivalent point; A=6 marks, B=4 marks, C=3 marks, so the better the candidates’ grades, the better his or her chances of securing admission this year.

“The next point is the UTME scores where each score range has its equivalent point which can be summarised thus, 180-200=20-23 marks, 200-250=24-33 points, 251-300=34-43, 300-400=44-60 points,” JAMB explained.

Giving a breakdown, JAMB explained that each category would contain five JAMB results per point added.

For example a candidate with 180-185 gets 20 points, while a candidate with 186-190 gets 21 points. JAMB added that the point system for direct entry would be released soon.

JAMB stated that fees would still be charged for screening which would replace the Post UTME test. It also emphasised that catchment and educationally less-developed state would still be used for admission into the nation’s tertiary institutions.

JAMB said, “Merit contains 45 per cent of the total candidates for a particular course, Catchment contains 35 per cent and ELDS and staff lists contains the rest. Cut off marks will be released by the institutions this year in the form of points and not marks.

“If a school declares its cut off mark for Medicine as 90 points and JAMB grants a candidate with 250 a provisional admission but his/her total points falls short of the 90 points, then he/she will lose the admission. So the provisional admission is just a means to an end, not the end in itself.”

How our home tutorials prepare our candidates for Unilag Post UTME and Foundation Programme entrance examinations

The candidates for whom we provide home tutorials towards University of Lagos (Unilag) entrance examinations fall into two categories. The first category are those who have unsuccessfully attempted JAMB/UTME/Post UTME/Foundation Programme entrance exams at least once while the second category are fresh school leavers.

The approach to preparing these two categories of candidates are different but they both aim at the same goal of preparing the candidates adequately to succeed in their entrance exams.

Usually, because they have been out of school for some time the first category of candidates are a little low on confidence when we first meet them and may feel they are forgetting what they learned in school. With no WASSCE or NECO to distract them however, there is usually enough time to focus and prepare them for the Post UTME or Foundation Programme entrance exams. Our early classes assess the candidates to know their state of readiness for the exams and by the time we are mid-way into the tutorial sessions, we have identified their areas of strength and weakness. We are then able to tune our preparation to meet the individual needs of the candidate.

In-between our tutorial sessions we give home works and encourage our candidates to study by themselves to build on their academic skill and proficiency.

In the course of the tutorials we give five assessments similar in strength to the actual examination being prepared for such that by the time our candidates are writing the actual Post UTME or Foundation Programme entrance exam it would appear to them that they writing the same exam for the sixth time! By this time they are poised to succeed.

The second category of our candidates are fresh school leavers who have just spent the previous three months of April – June writing WASSCE and NECO. They are usually exam fatigued by the time, towards the end of June, when we begin our preparations and typically have about four – six weeks before Post UTME and Foundation Programme entrance exams.

They have also spent the previous three school years preparing for school leaving examinations which are of a different nature to Post UTME and Foundation Programme. While preparing them for WASSCE/NECO can be likened to preparing them to win a game of football within the 90 minutes regulation time, preparing them for Post UTME and Foundation Programme can be likened to preparing them for extra time and penalty kicks.

Whichever category our candidates belong to we let them know of the challenge before them and show them how to surmount it. Additionally, we try to reinforce into them the ability to study by themselves which is critical for success at the University.

Our tutors are graduates and current students of the University of Lagos who know what it takes to succeed at the University entrance examinations. Details of our home tutorial services can be found at: http://lagtutor.com/tutorials.php.

About LagTutor.com

LagTutor.com is a web project that informs and prepares candidates for success in their University of Lagos (Unilag) post UTME and Foundation Programme entry examinations.

The project was born in 2011 after the realisation that many candidates fail in their aspirations to gain undergraduate admission into University of Lagos because of poor information about admission requirements and poor preparation for their entry examinations.

We have seen races where ‘C’ students succeeded in making the Unilag merit list and ‘A’ students failed same goal dramatically. We have observed that the difference between success and failure usually lies in having the right information to make correct decisions and preparing with a good study plan for the Unilag entry examinations.

To address the difference between success and failure we developed appropriate tools using relevant data, rigorous academic research, powerful web technologies and the experience of a team who know what it takes to succeed in gaining admission into the University of Lagos through the proper channels.

We are in the 6th year of implementing the LagTutor.com project and over the years we have provided many candidates with tools and services that helped them successfully gain admission into Unilag. We have made many students and parents happy in the last 6 years.

We have their testimonies.

In our course of implementing the LagTutor.com project we have received requests from candidates for help during their examinations. Every time we received such request we politely but firmly declined. Our service is strictly to inform and prepare adequately for the entry examinations. Our support service ends days to the entry examinations.

Our philosophy is guided by the knowledge that the easiest way to gain undergraduate admission into Unilag is through good preparation guided by good information. The LagTutor.com project is our tool to facilitate the goal.

We are always working hard to ensure we deliver our service to candidates and their parents using the best of web technologies. Our satisfaction comes when our candidates successfully gain admission into the University of Lagos to embark on academic programmes that will lead to the fulfilment of their life dreams.

Sincerely,
LagTutor.com team.
