JAMB Statistics and Result Analysis for 2024

The JAMB Registrar has announced the release of the UTME results of candidates that participated in the just concluded JAMB examinations. This post is exclusively about JAMB Statistics and Result Analysis for 2024. You are going to get information on general performance of the candidates and highest scorers.

Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board -JAMB


The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) conducts her UTME exams on a yearly basis. UTME which stands for Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations is the test used to assess and qualify candidates seeking admission into various tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

So, every year JAMB releases the registration, result statistics and analysis to the public. This is meant for the consumption of the candidates, institutions and other stake holders.

Many candidates are continually querying the Internet for these statistics. Consequently, I would be dropping most of them here. Use the comment section to post further questions if you need to.

How Many Candidates Registered for JAMB 2024

The number of candidates that registered for the 2024 UTME is OVER 1,989,668. That is almost 2 million!

The implication of this is that admission in Nigeria has become extremely competitive considering the number of available tertiary institutions and their carrying capacity.

JAMB 2024 Result Analysis

It will make a lot of sense if we analyze the results of candidates who sat for this year’s JAMB. Doing so will enable the concerned candidates to know where they stand and what to expect in the coming days. By what to expect, I mean their admission chances.

Let’s begin with the examination itself.

How Many Marks Does Each Subject Carry in JAMB

Each UTME subject carries a total of 100 marks.

As you already know, every candidate is expected to write four (4) UTME subjects. This would give a total of 400 marks for the entire exam.

What is JAMB Average Score 2024

As you already know, JAMB candidates are tested in four UTME subjects suitable for their prospective course. These four UTME subjects make up their JAMB subject combination.

However, the four UTME subjects are allotted different scores which sum up to 400. So JAMB marks every candidate’s script over 400. In other words, the highest possible score a candidate can obtain in JAMB is 400.

Therefore, JAMB average score can be worked out by simply dividing the total score by the number of subjects (which is 4).

What is the Highest JAMB Score 2024

The highest JAMB score in 2024 is 362 marks. The feat was achieved by Master Adebayo Eyimofe from Ekiti state who wrote his examination in Abuja.

Top 10 Highest JAMB Score 2024

The following are the top 10 highest JAMB scorers for 2024. Like I already said above, the highest scorer is an indigene of Ekiti state. The second is an Enugu state indigene.

  1. Adebayo Eyimofe – 362 points;
  2. Ugwu Chikelu – 359 points;
  3. Igbalaye Ebunoluwa – 357 points;
