Difference Between Jamb & UTME

Is Jamb the same as UTME? No.

JAMB stands for the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board. It is the body responsible for admission into Nigerian Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education.

Jamb has both UTME and Direct Entry. UTME is for secondary school leavers and those who need Admission into 100 level or ND Programme in Nigeria.

Jamb Direct Entry is for admission directly into 200 level and is for those who already have ND, HND, Jupeb, IJMB, or other A-Level programs certificates.

How To Gain Admission With UTME 2024

Apply for a School that will accept your score for your course…

Many candidates fail to secure admission to study their dream courses. However, this is not always because they had a low score in Jamb or are not connected; but because they are not guided on how to gain admission.

You can gain admission no matter your Jamb score. Some schools accept you even if you didn’t put them as a first or second choice in Jamb. Many Universities and Polytechnics accept low Jamb scores. The Jamb CAPS marketplace has also started recommending Jambites for admission.

You have a very high chance of gaining admission. But how will you make good use of these admission opportunities if you are not properly guided?

I have compiled the reasons many candidates fail to gain admission and what they should do.

Jamb Exam Results And Admission

JAMB releases result for Candidates 7 days after the exam. Jamb Results can be checked online and via SMS (RESULT to 55019). Visit the Jamb result portal and log in with your username and password to check the Result.

Jamb releases Admission lists and Admission letters. When you are finally admitted, you can proceed to print your Jamb Admission letter. In addition, admission status can be checked on both Jamb caps and Jamb portal.

The normal Jamb result you print out from a computer for free is not what you use for clearance and scholarship applications.

Your University or Polytechnic of choice will require an Original Result Slip during physical clearance. Jamb sells scratch cards to enable you to print Original Jamb results.


Jamb English Novel

The Life Changer by Khadija Abubakar Jalli has been Jamb approved novel for the past two years. Read And Download The Life Changer or see Questions from the Life Changer.

A question comes to mind, will Jamb still use the Life changer novel for 2024? It is under probability. There is a high chance that Jamb will introduce a new novel.

This page will be updated with the latest Jamb news and novel for Use of English.

The Banks Selling Jamb Forms are Zenith, Access, Ecobank, Firstbank, FCMB, Fidelity, Union, Unity, Sterling, etc

Schools That Accept Low Jamb Score

Many schools accept low scores in Jamb for admission…

If you score very low in Jamb, it is not the end of life. It doesn’t mean you can’t gain admission to study your desired course. It could just mean changing your institution of choice.

If the cut-off mark for your school of choice is too high, then consider changing to schools that demand a lower cut-off. You should be able to gain admission even with a Jamb score of 120. See good schools that accept low Jamb scores.

Reasons to do Jamb change of course and School: If you are not sure whether or not to do Jamb change of institution, the following reasons will convince you… Jamb change of institution and why you should consider it.

The General cut-off mark is a very important factor. It determines whether you will be accepted to participate in your school’s physical clearance.

Also, the general cut-off enables you to differentiate your Jamb score with respect to the school you chose. See the general cut-off marks for top Universities.

The biggest question when it comes to UTME is knowing the Jamb score you need to have to gain admission into your School or course of Choice. The recommended article below will enlighten you on the best Jamb score that will guarantee your admission.
