JAMB Adopts “Point System” Option For 2016 Admission. How To Calculate Points

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board 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.

Below is a detailed guide on how to calculate students' points according to the new grading system.

JAMB SCORE GRADE POINTS
180 – 185 ------------------------20 points
186 – 190------------------------21 points
191 -195-------------------------22 points
196 – 200-----------------------23 points
201 – 205-----------------------24 points
206 – 210-----------------------25 points
211 – 215-----------------------26 points
216 -220------------------------27 points
221 -225------------------------28 points
226 -230------------------------29 points
231 -235------------------------30 points
236 – 240-----------------------31 points
241 – 245-----------------------32 points

For example
Ciroma Chukwuma Adekunle scored 205 in UTME = 24 points
He applies for Mass Communication
He presents only one WAEC result = 10 points
He has 5 credits in the necessary subjects (3 x 5) =15 points
His total points = 49 points.
He will now await the school to release the cut off point for his course.
