PLEASE NOTE: You can get a response of which school you have been posted to for admission consideration which means your data has been fully processed by JAMB. On the other hand, some candidates will receive a response that says “sorry you have not been posted yet”

If you fall under the second category, no hope is lost, all you have to do is to keep checking from time to time, so far you got the JAMB cute off mark and met other 2016 JAMB admission criteria.

It will be recalled that the federal government of Nigeria had recently cancelled the conduct of UME or aptitude test by individual universities for 2016/2017 session in order to allow JAMB to do their work.

The decision also prevents what the Nigerian Government saw as extortion of candidates on the part of the universities and other tertiary institutions.

2016 JAMB Admission Criteria

JAMB subsequently made it clear that the Criteria for 2016/2017 admission will be Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE)/Advanced Level results for verification and clearing purposes.

JAMB went on to add that WAEC, NECO and NBTE results or their equivalent are acceptable as matriculation requirements with at least 5 credits.

Admission would be based on three legally backed pillars of: merit, catchment areas and educationally less developed states (ELDS).

Congratulations to all the Jambites who have succeeded in joining the aluta group this year after being considered for admission by JAMB which also automatically makes them great Nigerian students.
