Even though most of the time, JAMB usually set the cut off mark for 180, most of the schools usually change such decision and set their own desirable cut off mark. Actually, the main reason for the setting of cut off mark id to determine the possibility of participating in your chosen school Post UTME or not. Thus, before been able to apply and be eligible for the POST UTME of any federal University, State University, Federal or State Polytechnic or even College of Education, you must have JAMB score of at least over 200 in order to be sure of you participating in the post JAMB.

Thus, please note that the Schools have the utmost right to increase their cut off mark to any score that suits their personality. My advice for you is that, after your JAMB has been released and it doesn’t conform with your chosen school requirement, it is better to do a change of institution to the school that has your score within their requirement range

Also, most of the University usually set different cut off mark for the various department they are having apart from the general cut off mark that enables you to participate in the Post UTME. Thus, after noticing that your Jamb Score did not conform with your chosen course in that school, it is better for you to do a change of course to the one that you fulfill its requirement. Yes, I know you love that very course but they said prevention is better than cure. I think it is better to gain admission into another course than not getting admission into any course. Be wise, Time is going. Wish you the very best of Luck.

That’s all about JAMB Cut off Mark 2019/2020 For All Nigerian Schools.

International Scholarship

Ghanaian Varsity Offers $40,000 Scholarship to 2019 UTME Top Scorer, Ekene




Academic City College, a private university in Accra, Ghana, has offered scholarship worth $40,000 to Ekene Franklin Ezeunala, the candidate who scored 347 – the highest score – in the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). The College Senior Admissions Manager (Nigeria), Mrs Ogechi Ekpe, said on the sidelines of a workshop organised by the institution for schools and parents at the Sheraton Hotel, Ikeja, at the weekend that the scholarship would cover tuition and boarding for the duration of his programme at the university.

Sell Past Questions on Myschool
“We have a full scholarship for Ekene. He was supposed to be here today (Friday) but we did not talk about the scholarship today because he was not here. We were to present a scholarship of $40,000 to the boy from year one till he graduates,” she said.

When asked how Ekene would be informed about the scholarship since he was not at the event, Mrs Ekpe said: “We were hoping he would be here today so our President can give him the award. The school is here now. We have to go there and see if we can either take him to Ghana or get our President to come again and give him the scholarship. The scholarship is for real. It is called the Presidential Scholarship so the school pays everything including the hostel fees.”

Ekene, who turns 15 today (Monday), is below 16, the minimum age benchmark to gain admission into his preferred choice – the University of Lagos (UNILAG).

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), also stipulates 16 years as the minimum age for candidates to take the examination during the admission year they apply. However many private varsities in Nigeria accept students who are less than 16.

Mrs. Ekpe said that Academic City College, which offers programmes in Engineering, Business, Communication Arts and Information Technology, accepts students from 15 years of age because it has system in place to monitor them.

She said: “That is why we want him there. Nigerian schools won’t give him admission but we will. We start admitting from 15 which is why we have a very visible Dean of Students’ Affairs. We make sure that they go to class, especially foreign students. You cannot be in the hostel during learning hours. Dean Ruth, that is her name, she normally goes round.

“There are parents that pay for their kids to be off campus but all international students must be on campus because we don’t want them to have immigration issues; we don’t want them to go off track and start doing drugs. We actually insist that in the first year at least they must be on campus.”

The Ghanaian institution became the second institution to announce a full scholarship to Ekene, who just completed his West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) at Meiran Community Senior High School, Meiran, Lagos.

The first was Gregory University, Uturu in Abia State.

After 2019 JAMB UTME, What’s Next? Here’s What Every Candidate Should Do




We can say that the 2019 JAMB UTME has officially been concluded. While some candidates are counting their gains, others are counting their losses. Which ever category you fall in, it is important to know that a high JAMB score is not an automatic ticket to higher institution neither does a low JAMB score automatically disqualify you for admission.
We have seen candidates with high JAMB scores who failed to secure admission into any institution and had to retake JAMB and we have equally seen candidates with low JAMB Scores (Less than 200) who gained admission without having to wait for another JAMB.
So basically, a low or high JAMB score is not the ultimate determinant of who gains and who doesn’t gain admission.
So at this point, what we expect all 2019 JAMB candidates to do is to ask the following critical questions?
>> What was my school’s cut-off mark last year ?
>> What was the cut-off mark for my intended course of study?
>> Do I need a change of course/institution? (Note: Change of course/institution has not commenced)
>> What’s the school’s Post-UTME Screening like?
>> How Can I prepare adequately for my school’s Post-UTME Screening?
The answers to these critical questions will help you know what next step to take towards successfully securing admission this year.
If going by your score, you stand a better chance of gaining admission in a polytechnic, by all means, go for it. Unless of course you don’t mind patronising JAMB next year.
Another advise is this; do not wait for your school of choice to announce sales of Post-UTME form before you stat preparing for it. We have made available the Post-UTME Past Questions for various schools . Do well to get yours now by visiting this link.
Finally, do not also forget Naija Edu Consult will be here for you all through the journey. So ensure you visit regularly for updates regarding the 2019/2020 Admission exercise.
Admission Success to you all!
