8 things every Nigerian student must know in regards to Admission 2017.

Universities would still have to screen applicants
at the end of the admission process, using this
point system. The Universities would charge the
applicants fees for the screening.
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board,
(JAMB) has issued its guideline for admission
process into Federal, State and Private
Universities in Nigeria for the 2016/2017
Academic Session.
The announcement followed a week of meeting
with universities and other tertiary institutions in
Nigeria.
Here are eight things Nigerian students must
understand from the new guidelines.
1. The new method uses a point system, which is
divided into other processes. The board said,
“ before a candidate can be considered for
screening,
he/she must have been given provisional
admission
by JAMB.”
2. The second process, the board said, was the
point system where admission would depend on
the point tally of the candidate.
“ 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. ”
3. Any candidate who submits only one result
which contains his/her relevant subjects already
has 10 points, 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
barely.
4. The next point grades fell into the O’level
grades where each grade has it’s equivalent point;
A=6 marks, B=4 marks, C=3 marks, so the better
the candidates’ grades, the better his or her
chances of securing admission this year.
5. The next point is the UTME scores where 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.
6. JAMB revealed that Universities would still
have to screen applicants at the end of the
admission process, using this point system. The
Universities would charge the applicants fees for
the screening.
7. Cut off marks will be released by schools this
year in the form of points and not marks. If a
school declares it’s cut off mark for Medicine as
90 points and JAMB grants a candidate with 250
a provisional admission but his/her total points
falls short of the 90 points, then he/she will lose
the admission. »
8. The point system for direct entry would soon be
released by JAMB even as the screening exercise
would replace the scrapped UTME.
