JAMB Guidelines for The 2022 Admission Exercise First Series as published on JAMB Bulletin on Aug 22, 2022.

TOPIC:- UTME / DE Score for Admission Exercise and Minimum Duration for First Degree Programmes.

– Every institution is at liberty to determine the minimum UTME score acceptable to it for admission. Similarly, for DE, each institution will determine the number of points required by it for direct entry admission. Nevertheless, no institution can recommend or admit any candidate with less than 2 points for direct entry.

– No institution will be allowed to recommend or admit any candidate whose UTME score is below the following threshold of 140 and 100 for Degree and ND/NCE, respectively.

– No institution is allowed to recommend or admit any candidate whose total score is below the minimum score proposed by the Institution and approved by the Policy Meeting. The totality of all scores being used for the ranking of the candidate shall be taken into account in determining the percentage (%) minimum score.

–  Ranking for admission would be determined by the totality of the following assessments:
i. UTME score/DE Grades (within their respective threshold);
ii. Institutional Screening scores (if applicable);
iii. grading of Senior School Certificate (SSCE) Grades (if applicable);
iv. interview/practical scores (if applicable) and in all cases
v. the percentage (%) allotted to the UTME score should range from 50% to100%.

– Admission Officers are to download O’Level details of candidates on CAPS before initiating the process of admissions for any programme. No Institution shall require any candidate to upload any result other than those downloaded from CAPS which the institutions are encouraged to also reverify on their own.

– No candidate can be considered for admission if he/she does not meet the prescribed requirements by the institution provided such requirement has been approved and published by JAMB.

– No institution can impose on a candidate a requirement that had not been published by JAMB in the 2022 e-Brochure.

– Institutions are to adhere to institutional/programme standards and comply with entry requirements as documented in the 2022 e-Brochure.

– No institution can admit/accept the transfer of a candidate into any degree programme unless the candidate would spend on full-time, not less than two (2) consecutive sessions in the Institution before graduation.
