Implications Of The New 2016/2017 JAMB Admission Procedures- Grade-Point System

According to the new guidelines introduced by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), the admission process for entry into tertiary institutions in Nigeria has changed.The implication of the point-based system means:
  1. Candidates can no longer go directly to the institutions they applied to seeking admission; they have to get a provisional admission letter from JAMB first.
  1. Admission letter would be issued by JAMB based on points assigned to the O Level and UTME results
  2. For O Level, one sitting attracts 10 points, while two sittings, is assigned two points
  3. The better the O Level results, the more the points (e.g. ;  A=6 marks, B=4 marks, C=3 marks)
  4. For UTME scores, candidates can get between 20 and 60 points (180-200=20-23 points; 200-250=24-33 points, 251-300=34-43 points, 300-400=44-60 points)
  5. Pont-based system for Direct Entry candidates still being developed
  6. Yes, candidates will still be screened by universities, polytechnics and colleges of education after getting a provisional admission letter from JAMB
  7. Yes, candidates will pay for the screening
  8. Cut-off marks to be stipulated by institutions for courses would be point-based
