JAMB as a body has the power to grant admission to any student in any institution within Nigeria whether or not the candidate meets the school requirements.

This means that JAMB cannot offer any candidates admission without the school approving it. The same way, no school can offer any candidate admission unless JAMB confirms and approves that the candidate has met the requirements.

Jamb is responsible for over 4% of admission to Nigeria’s institution and it’s one of the reasons while it’s important to check your jamb admission status regularly. JAMB has the names and scores of all UTME candidates and few who meet the admission requirements will be selected and will be given admission without permission or approval from the Nigerian institution.

Upon conclusion of all necessary Exam – Post UTME, Schools are meant to collect and submit the names of qualified candidates to jamb by following the admission quota has stated by jamb.

Any school that fails to abide by the rules set by JAMB may find themselves in a situation whereby their admission list will be rejected by jamb and new names will have to be drafted and resubmitted to jamb for final approval.

  • If one should score 172 and jamb has released their cut off mark to be 160,and your prefered school is one of the 51 institution that has refused to accept cut off mark below 180. Is there hope for the person,or at point,what is the person’s faith on gainning admission.

    • The truth is that most Universities are really strict to bring down their high standard for students who have low marks.

      So if you notice that the university you applied for did not accept the jamb given cut off mark which is 160 the best thing is that you should look out for other universities that accept your low mark you score during Jamb. please don’t waste that mark even thou is low but it can still go long way.
