What is JAMB and UTME?

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is a government-recognized institute in Nigeria that is responsible for administering the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). This yearly computer-based test is a prerequisite for gaining admission to universities, polytechnics, colleges, and other higher education institutions in Nigeria.

The UTME is usually conducted between February and June every year, and candidates are required to register online with their personal and academic details, choose four preferred institutions and courses, and select an examination center and date. The UTME consists of four subjects that are relevant to the candidate’s chosen course, and each subject has 50 questions that are to be answered within 120 minutes. The total score for the UTME is 400, and candidates can check their results online or via SMS within 24 hours after the examination.

Can I Combine Two JAMB Results for Admission?

The answer to this question is NO. You cannot combine two JAMB results for admission into any institution or course in Nigeria. This is because JAMB only allows candidates to use one UTME result for admission in a particular academic session. Therefore, if you took the UTME in 2024 and 2025, you can only use one of your results for admission in 2024/2025, and the other result will be invalid.

This policy is to ensure that candidates do not have an unfair advantage over others who only took the UTME once, and to maintain the quality and standard of education in Nigeria. JAMB also advises candidates to avoid registering for the UTME more than once, as this may lead to disqualification or cancellation of results.

How to Check JAMB Admission Status

To check your JAMB admission status, you need to visit the JAMB e-facility portal at https://efacility.jamb.gov.ng/ and log in with your registration number or email address. Then, go to the “Result Notification” tab and click on “Check My Result”. Your result will immediately be displayed, showing your score, subject combination, and institution and course of choice.

However, checking your result does not mean that you have been admitted. You also need to check your admission status on the JAMB Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) portal at https://efacility.jamb.gov.ng/. This portal allows you to accept or reject your admission offer, and also to monitor the progress of your admission process. To access the CAPS portal, you need to log in with your registration number and password, and then click on “Check Admission Status”. You will see a message indicating whether you have been offered admission or not. If you have been offered admission, you need to accept it by clicking on the “Accept” button, and then print your admission letter. If you have not been offered admission, you need to keep checking the portal regularly, as admission offers are released in batches.

JAMB Cut-off Marks and Admission Policy

The JAMB cut-off mark is the minimum score that a candidate must obtain in the UTME to be eligible for admission into a particular institution or course. The cut-off mark varies depending on the institution, course, and category of candidates (such as UTME, Direct Entry, or Special Consideration). The cut-off mark is usually determined by the institution, based on the number of available spaces, the performance of candidates, and the admission policy of JAMB.

The JAMB admission policy is a set of guidelines and decisions that regulate and streamline the admission process for all tertiary institutions in Nigeria. The policy is formulated and implemented by JAMB in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Education, the National Universities Commission (NUC), the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE), and other stakeholders. The policy covers issues such as the cessation of illegal or irregular admissions, the eligibility criteria for admission, the admission quota system, the catchment area and educationally less developed states considerations, the transfer of candidates, the change of institution and course, and the admission deadlines.

The JAMB admission policy is reviewed and updated every year, based on the feedback and recommendations from the stakeholders. The policy for the 2024/2025 admission exercise was announced at the 2024 Policy Meeting on Admission to Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria, which was held on August 31, 2023. Some of the highlights of the policy are as follows:

  • The minimum cut-off mark for admission into universities is 160, while that for polytechnics and colleges of education is 120.
  • Candidates who score below the minimum cut-off mark can apply for the JAMB Innovative Enterprise Institutions (IEIs) programme, which offers vocational and technical education and training.
  • Candidates who do not have the required O’level credits for their chosen course can apply for the JAMB Interim Joint Matriculation Board (IJMB) programme, which offers a one-year advanced level course that qualifies them for direct entry admission.
  • Candidates who have been offered admission must accept or reject it within 72 hours on the CAPS portal, otherwise, they will forfeit the admission offer.
  • Institutions must not charge candidates more than N2,000 for any post-UTME screening or verification exercise.
  • Institutions must not admit candidates who did not choose them as their first choice, except with the approval of JAMB.
  • Institutions must not admit candidates who have been involved in examination malpractice, impersonation, or multiple registrations.
