Plus-One School Portal
As was announced earlier today on
http://www.jamb.gov.ng , the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has finally
released the modalities for this year’s admission process, in other words, the
method of admission.
This new method uses a point system that is easy to understand, the whole
process is divided into main points as follows;
1) Before a candidate can seat be considered for screening, he/she must have
been given provisional admission by Jamb. The Jamb admission checker portal
is going to be opened soon for this process, so praying is all you can do now.
2) THE POINT SYSTEM:
This is the most critical part of the process. Jamb’s provisional admission no
longer makes much sense this year, your points tally will decide your faith.
The points are evenly spread out between your O’level and Jamb results to
provide a level playing field for all.
In the first case, any candidate who submits only one result which contains
his/her relevant subjects already has 10points, the exam could be NECO,
WAEC, GCE etc, but any candidate who has 2 sittings only gets 2 points. So
this means that aspirants with only one result are at an advantage but only
The next point grades fall into the O’level grades. Each grades has it’s
equivalent point, A=6 marks, B=4 marks, C=3 marks, so the better your grades
the better your chances.
The next point is the UTME scores. Each score range has its equivalent point
which can be summarized thus, 180-200=20-23 marks, 200-250=24-33 points,
251-300=34-43, 300-400=44-60 points. Each categories contains 5 Jamb
results per point added
3) It then comes down to the fact that fees will still be charged for screening,
it depends on the school as well.
4) Catchment and ELDS will still be used! Merit contains 45% of the total
candidates for a particular course, Catchment contains 35% and ELDS and
staff lists contains the rest.
5) Cutoff marks will be released by schools this year in the form of points and
