Best Ways To Gain Admission Into Universities With Jamb

1. Obtain Higher O/level Grades

Many Universities will ask you to upload your O/level result on JAMB portal before they consider your application and this is because they assign points to each of your grade in the five required O/level subjects and the total will then determine how qualified you are for that course you have chosen compared to other applicants.

To gain admission with JAMB UTME, you must meet or score above the University of your choice cut off mark, well this should be the least of your problem as the real problem is Post UTME and strict departmental and faculty screening.

Post UTME questions are often just English, Mathematics and General Knowledge or exactly the same subjects you did in Jamb, well it depends on the university too though. While these scores are either summed over 30, 50, 100 or 400 and then sliced in half or quarter before being added to your points. In this article we therefore recommend you obtain at least three-quarter of the total Post UTME score to stand a better chance of admission.
