What Jamb score do I need to get admitted into the University to study my desired course? So many persons ask similar questions.
I scored……can I gain admission with my score? If that’s your question, then this article is for you.
I will try to make this very easy and straight forward.
The Jamb Score That Guarantees You Admission Into Any University is directly proportional to your choice of course.
I hear people say that with a score of 250 you are automatically Admitted.
Seriously I don’t know the origin of that lie. But I am sure that it did not originate from Jamb or any school.
The Jamb score you need to gain admission is determined by five factors.
- Performance of students in Jamb Results.
- Nature of Your course Generally.
- The Competition of the course in your choice University.
- The Number of students to be admitted.
- Admission Factors: Merit, Catchment and Educationally less developed States.
I will briefly explain each factors and how it determines what you need to score in Jamb for sure admission.
1. Performance of students in Jamb:
The higher the performance of students in Jamb, the higher the cut off mark that year. That is why we cannot easily predict the average Jamb score.
2. Nature of Your course Generally:
Hot cake Courses like Medicine and Surgery, Pharmacy, Engineering, Accounting and so on using require higher Jamb score.
However, newer and less competitive courses like entrepreneurship, mathematics, etc requires relatively low utme score.
3. The Competition of the course in your choice University:
Some Universities are know to be good at a particular course. Because of this, the demand for it in that particular school gets higher than in other schools.
For example FUTO is known for Engineering, AAU is know for Law and Uniben for Pharmacy (Since they offer doctor of Pharmacy certificate). You will expect the cut of mark for those courses to be higher than it is in other schools.
4. The Number of students to be admitted:
The higher the carrying capacity of a University, the more they are willingly to admit. This will increase the chance of being admitted with a relatively low score.
5. Admission Factors:
Admission factors such as Merit, Catchment and Educationally less developed States determines the Jamb score you need to be admitted. Cut off for merit is usually the highest. With a relatively low score, you can be admitted based on State and catchment.
Jamb Score You Need:
Although the above factors are responsible for the Jamb score you need to be sure of admission, yet we have studied the cut off curve over time.
With a score above 270, you have a chance of being admitted to study a competitive course.
With a Jamb score of 240+, you get a chance of getting moderately competitive course.
A score of 280+ should guarantee you admission to study any course.
