The 2018 JAMB UTME has officially been concluded (though many candidates are yet to see their results). As would be expected, some candidates made very high scores while others made scores they are not too proud of.
Whichever category you fall in, I want to quickly remind you that a high JAMB score is not an automatic ticket to higher institution just as a low JAMB score does not automatically disqualify you for admission.

Over the years, we have seen candidates with high JAMB scores who failed to gain admission into any institution and had to retake JAMB, and we have equally seen candidates with low JAMB Scores (even less than 200) who gained admission without having to wait to write another JAMB.
So basically, a low or high JAMB score is not the ultimate determinant of who gains and who doesn’t gain admission.

So at this point, what we expect all 2018 JAMB candidates to do is to ask the following critical questions?
- What is my school’s cut-off mark?
- What is the cut-off mark for my intended course of study?
- Do I need a change of course/institution?
- What’s the school’s Post-UTME Screening like?
- How Can I prepare adequately for my school’s Post-UTME Screening?
Please note this. It’s is better to occupy yourself in a polytechnic or college of education than to stay at home whiling away time.
