About JAMB 2021
The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) is a well-known Nigerian tertiary admissions review board. The board administers entrance exams to Nigerian universities for prospective undergraduates. The board is in charge of administering similar exams to candidates for Nigerian public and private monotechnics, polytechnics, and colleges of education.
An Act of 1978 created the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, which was later amended in 1989 and 1993. The Board is empowered by the Act to be responsible for the following:
- appointment of examiners, moderators, invigilators, members of subject panels and commissions, and other individuals with regard to matriculation.
- general control over the conduct of matriculation examinations in all Universities, Monotechnics, Polytechnics, and Colleges of Education
- Collaboration with tertiary institutions to position suitably eligible applicants in those institutions.
The Board conducts a matriculation test for candidates seeking admission to tertiary institutions in the country in order to carry out these functions. The Unified Tertiary Matriculation examination is the name of this exam (UTME).
JAMB CBT Centres
The numerous locations and centers in Nigeria approved by JAMB for the registration of the UTME examination are known as Jamb CBT (Computer Based Test) Centres. In Nigeria’s 36 states, including the Federal Capital Territory (Nigeria), there are numerous JAMB CBT centers/locations.
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board administer an examination each year to decide if a student will be admitted to higher education. About 2.1 million people have registered for the 2020 test, which is a new high.
The Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) has a one-year validity period and a grade scale of 0-400. After the year’s examinations are completed, the board meets to discuss the cut-off point for Universities, Polytechnics, and Colleges of Education.
