UTME 2018: Over 1 Million Candidates Scored Above 100 - JAMB Boss

The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede has disclosed that at least 1, 178,665 candidates scored 100 and above in the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

He further revelaed that out of 1,840,225 candidates who wrote the examination, only 800,000 had the five credits ordinary level (O’ level) minimum requirements.

UTME 2018: Over 1 Million Candidates Scored Above 100 - JAMB Boss

He said: “There are 767 tertiary higher institutions in Nigeria and about 560,168 candidates have been admitted. About 20 per cent of the candidates are in SS2, they only took JAMB for trials.”

The JAMB registrar however stated that the involvement of parents in examination malpractice remains a major challenge for the Board as most parents can go to any length to ensure their children pass the examination at all cost. He pointed out cases of parents paying huge amount of money into fraudulent account in order to pave way for their wards.

  • esthilo: it was a mistake that was last year statistics they used 1.8 registered for last year jamb and 1.2 had 100-180 just about 560200 had 180 above that was the reason cut off mark was reduced to 120

    Problem With
    JAMB Candidates
    But Their Parents,
    Says registrar Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, Registrar, Joint Admissions and
    Matriculation Board (JAMB), has said that one of the major
    challenges faced by the board
    during the just concluded
    2018 UTME examinations were from parents of the candidates. He said he was shocked at the
    level of desperation shown by
    parents to ensure that their wards
    get high scores regardless of the
    consequences. Oloyede pointed out that the
    situation has continued to give the
    board consistent concern. He said this during a meeting with
    the Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption in Abuja. β€œThe greatest problem we

  • esthilo: last year it was due to the number of candidates below 180 that was why jamb reduced the cut off mark to 120 1.2 million had 100 above and just about 600000 had 180 above he was trying to accommodate people below 180 to write post utme

I think this Prof Oloyede's JAMB is very bad in rolling out its statistics, we still have 2016 statistics on jamb website and nothing like 2017 statistics since this Oloyede has taken over jamb.

All I know is that u will be given admission even if u didn't upload ur O' level result when registering Jamb provided u beat the cut off mark
Just make sure u upload ur result before sitting for post utme
  • lanskeed: Very well br,dont bother to upload if u hv not done so b4.D Irony of dis thing is dat those who called dis a lie will go and do it and will not come back to tell those they mislead.
