JAMB announces cut-off mark for 2019 admission

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said it will revalidate the biometrics of all candidates who have participated in its examination in the last 10 years.

This is contained in a statement by the board’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, issued on Sunday in Lagos.

According to the statement, the revalidation has become necessary in a bid to detect impersonation.

Benjamin said it had become a norm, each year, for the board to be flooded with the application for correction of data after its Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

He said that the board had also vowed to make public the names of impostors in order to serve as a deterrent to others, as well as stem the antics of ‘Professional Examination takers’.

“This step is taken as a result of the huge number of applications recorded by the board, aimed at perfecting fraudulent acts that had aided impersonation in the first instance.

“It should be noted that the board had, in recent times, been inundated with series of complaints bordering on change of names, state of origin, local government, gender, date of birth, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses and subject combination of candidates.

“The board, in its attempt to block all forms of examination malpractice, has discovered that one of the ways candidates employ is professional examination writers, who register using the candidate’s name and afterwards apply for the correction of such details, along the lines listed above.

“To address this ugly trend, therefore, the board has resolved to revalidate the biometrics of candidates that had taken the board’s examination to fish out these impersonators and prosecute them along with their sponsors,” the statement read.

Benjamin said that the board had discovered a series of ‘unfortunate and pathetic situations’, into which some of the so-called elite schools had put some candidates.

He explained that in their (elite schools) bid to make money, they subject the candidates to group registration, after collecting huge sums of money from unsuspecting parents.

“Such group registration ends up distorting candidates’ data.

“The public, therefore, should be mindful of some of these so-called elite schools, which exploit parents by collecting huge sums of money to register students in group, more often at unauthorised centres.

“The board’s examination is not a school-based examination, and therefore, does not require candidates’ registration in the group.

“As such, all candidates, desiring to take the board’s examination are required to register individually and not in a group.

“Similarly, the board urges some of these elite secondary schools which indulge in collecting money in bulk to register candidates to desist from such act or be held responsible for any misfortune that may befall such candidates,” the statement read.

Benjamin said that in the course of various investigations conducted by the board, many instances of an attempt to register candidates using multiple PIN to conceal impersonation were discovered.

According to the statement, other cases emanated from candidates who are already admitted to various programmes in tertiary schools and are also seeking such corrections to normalise infractions that have been perpetrated to gain such admission.

“In light of this, prospective candidates are therefore advised to do the registration themselves, at approved JAMB CBT centres, to avoid unnecessary centres.

“Candidates are also warned against examination malpractice acts, including impersonation, as the board has deployed appropriate technology to detect impersonation and apprehend perpetrators.

“This can even occur after graduation,” the statement read.

Loading...

1.Prepare your documents- Before you go in for the screening, ensure you have your:

  • SSCE Result- This can be WAEC, GCE, or NECO. Some schools ask for the original copy. If you sat for GCE, you can get your original copy at the nearest WAEC office. However, if you sat for NECO or WAEC, you will need to get yours at the school you wrote the exams in. For GCE candidates, you will need to go with a print-out version of your result before the original will be released.
  • Declaration of Local Government and State of Origin Document- This document proves that you are indeed from the local government you claimed to be from. You will need to obtain this from your local government council.
  • Passport photograph- Some schools have various requirements for the kind of background they want in your passport. UNIBEN, for example, requires a passport with a red background.
  • Guarantor or reference letter- This is a letter in which someone vouches that you are of good conduct. Usually, schools ask for a civil servant with not less than a Grade 10 level.
  • Birth Certificate or Declaration of age- This is a document that proves your age
  • Original Jamb Result- This is the Jamb print-out slip with your result and photo on it
  • Jamb Bio Data- This is the first print out that includes all the information about your jamb examination.

2.  Realize that the easiest way to pass is to read- A lot of scammers go around promising students to upgrade their Post-UTME score. In the end, the make away with your money, leaving you at the losing end.

3. Know the form’s price- Realize that almost all schools charge N2,000 for the forms to avoid being cheated.

4. Check out all your school’s requirements- To avoid getting into a rush hour, check out your school’s requirements before time.

5. Get information- The easiest and safest way to do this is to find someone who has gained admission into your preferred school recently. The person will be able to give you some helpful pointers and so, you will be able to know what to expect.

6. Find out your budget- As of now, schools are still selling post UTME forms. This is the perfect time for you to go ahead and find out the total amount of money you may need to spend. This includes school fees, admission form, acceptance fee, accommodation, as well as other things. Doing this will give you a head start.

7. Keep your head up- As schools operate independently, you will need to follow them to be able to gain information about what they do and when they do it. Frequently check your school’s website in order to keep up with any latest news.

8. Visit your school- Try as much as possible to visit your school before the post UTME and even after. This will enable you to get familiar with your surroundings. One common problem fresher’s face has to do with the fact that they do not know anywhere. Try to overcome that problem. You can seek out someone to give you a tour of the school grounds.

9. Keep calm- Lastly, keep calm. Over-worrying or obsessing won’t make your admission any easier to get. A steady mind always makes better decisions than a stressed one. Realize that your scores will gain you admission and not your over-thinking. Keep calm. Your entry experience will definitely be a memorable one.
