Joint Admission and Matriculation Board(JAMB) met representatives of Universities, Polythecnics and Colleges of Education, to reveal the new criteria for admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria. In essence, creating a more national screening models for all schools.

– 10% for DE
However, if the 10% for DE is not utilized, it may be added to the UTME quota.
Guideline 2(A): Private Schools Admission Course Ratio
Private Universities:
Ratio: 60 / 40 (SCIENCES Courses/ ARTS Courses)
A. CONVENTIONAL INSTITUTIONS(Universities and Colleges of Education)
Sciences (60) : Arts/Social Sciences (40)

Guideline 2(B): Admission Entry-Mode Quota
UTME/DIRECT ENTRY RATIO: 9 : 1

– 10% for DE
ISSUES TO NOTE
– The list of candidates that have scored above the minimum cut-off mark, and are NOT admitted may be forwarded to other institutions that need them for consideration. Especially their Second (2nd) Choice institutions of preferences.
The rules:
1. Screening of candidates shall be for those offered Provisional Admissions only.
2. No written examination to be conducted.
3. Verification of Course Requirements (O levels or A levels).
4. Verification of valid JAMB results by checking
i.Online Result Slip
ii.Printout
iii.Provisional Admission Letter
iv.Photo Album
v.Check list
vi.Biometrics
vii. Before a candidate can seat be considered for screening, he/she must have been given provisional admission by Jamb.
viii. Institutions are free to source from other Course(s) to compensate for SHORTFALL in any of the criteria.

Guideline 3: The Point System
This is the most important part of the new process. The points are evenly spread out between your O’level and Jamb results to provide a level playing field for all. In the first case, any candidate who submits only one result which contains his/her relevant subjects already has 10 Points, the exam could be NECO, WAEC, GCE etc, but any candidate who has 2 sittings only gets 3 Points. So this means that aspirants with only one result are at an advantage but only just.
The next point grades fall into the O’level grades. Each grades has it’s equivalent point, A=6 marks, B=4 marks, C=3 marks, so the better your grades the better your chances.
The next point is the UTME scores. Each score range has its equivalent point which can be summarized thus, 180-200=20-23 marks, 200-250=24-33 points, 251-300=34-43, 300-400=44-60 points. Each categories contains 5 Jamb results per point added, for example a candidate with 180-185 gets 20points, a candidate with 186-190 gets 21 points etc.
Points system for Direct Entry is yet to be released.
– Schools might still charge screening fees, this depends on the school.
– Catchment and ELDS will still be used!
