About The JAMB

The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board Exams founded in 1978 is an examination board in Nigeria. The first registrar for the exam was Mr Saidu who served from its inception until 1986. The current registrar is Is-haq Oloyede.

JAMB has the responsibility of conducting UTME (Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination) for students who want to gain admission into Nigerian Universities (public and private), polytechnics, or college of educations.

Candidates can only be eligible to seat for the exam if they can provide their WAEC (West African Examination Council or NECO (National Examination Council) exam certificate.

Formerly, JAMB had conducted their exams through the use of question paper and answer sheets but has since changed to computer based in 2013. Introducing CBT was to check examination malpractices and improve the computer literacy of students. Although introduced in 2013, they not make it compulsory until 2015.

The cut off mark of the exam for those who want to gain admission into the university is 180 while those who want to go through the polytechnic is 160.

JAMB Test Dates

JAMB fixes its test dates around March but can get shifted depending on the socio-political condition of the country.

The mock JAMB exams is conducted before the real one to enable students have a feel of the exam and help them prepare better for the real one. The JAMB mock exam holds `about three weeks before the main exams to give JAMB enough time to prepare the materials needed for the main exam.

Both the mock and main exam takes about a week to conduct considering the number of students that registered for it. If you do not register early enough for the exams, there is the chance you’ll get posted to a place far away from your residence to take the exams since centres close to home have gotten filled up already.

So if you plan on taking the exams, you must register early to save a seat and avoid spending extra money on transportation and accommodation.
