JAMB 2015 UTME Guide to Success

How to be successful in Jamb 2014
and Score 270 and Above

Tips 1. Following the words of the JAMB
Registrar after the 2014 exercise, Prof
Dibu Ojerinde said: “We have gone
digital in JAMB.” What he meant by
‘going digital’ is that the Jamb 2015/2016
UTME examination is going to be a
Computer Based Test. To avoid surprises
in the exam hall, we encourage
participants to learn how to operate a
computer system which is as simple as

In the examination hall, your computer
will be “timed” when it reached the
allotted time, it will switch off, even if
you have not answer any
question! So the call to be fast is needed.

Tips 2. All admission seeking candidates
in the Jamb 2014, mostly candidates
within the South- Eastern environs are
advice to make early registrations for the
JAMB 2015/2016 UTME to avoid missing
out on available centers. Last session
(Jamb 2014), with the record number of
1.8 Million candidates who participated in
the examination, Centres were exhausted
within three months of registrations, and
late registrants were pushed to the North,
north east and north central zones of the
country to take their

if you are not in the north, i know you
don’t want to risk going to the North to
write your jamb exam, due to the the
terror insurgence.
A lot of candidates miss the last year jamb
exercise due to this problem, so we
encourage you to purchase the form as
soon as possible.

Tips 3. From statistic, over 1.2 Million
Students registered and participated in
the JAMB 2015/2016 UTME exercise, and
not more than 450,000 of these students
were admitted, together with over 1.2
million students leaving our various high
schools, due to the low amount to
candidates who are offered admission last
year, we are very sure more than 2
million candidates will participate in the
JAMB 2015-2016 UTME exams.
We therefore advice candidates to
prepare for the
competitions. One way to beat it is to Jack
book (read your book).

Tips 5. The JAMB 2015 candidates are
advised to stay away from the Most
Selected Institutions as outlined below;

• University Of Lagos (Unilag)
• University Of Benin (Uniben)
• University Of Nigeria (UNN)
• University Of Ilorin (Unilorin)
• Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka.
• Federal University of Technology,
Owerri (Futo)
• University of Ibadan (UI)
• University of Port Harcourt (Uniport)
This are popular-one of the popular-
institutions in
Nigeria. The reason why we advice that
you stay away from this universities is to
boost your chances of admission, not
because you are not intelligent, but
because admission slots are very limited,
the competition in these institutions is
higher and if it is not your catchment
area, then your chance of getting
admitted is equal to zero.
But still, if you must choose any of the
institutions, please also look for
Universities that
accept 2nd choice and that are not too
competitive. Take note of this as you will
remember it when Admission commence.
Now success tips 6 will show us courses
that are very competitive and why you
have to ignore them.

Tips 6. All candidates seeking Admission
into Tertiary Institutions via the JAMB
2015/2016 UTME exercise are advice to be
very careful in their selection of courses,
it is no news that the following courses
have the highest number of applicants.

• Medicine And Surgery
• Economics
• Accounting
• Law/Civil Law
• Pharmacy etc.
• Mechanical Engr/civil/elect elect etc.

Selecting one of the above means you will
be competing with thousands of
candidates for the space, which is likely
not up to hundreds in all the Institutions.
But if you are however interested in any
of the above courses, you must learn how
to balance your selections appropriately
to increase your chances of getting
admitted. Ensure you also select courses
that has few number of candidates, and
by so ding, you can be sure of your
Admission and if you so please, you can
apply for change of course after been

This is as to boost your chances of
admission, not because you are not
intelligent, but because slots are
limited,competition is higher and you are
getting older, plus, ASUU would make you
age before time,
hence, make hay while the sun shine.

Tips 7. It is important also that you know
the accreditation status of the course(s)
you want to apply for in the choice
Institutions before submitting your

What is Accreditation of course?
Some university offer courses that has not
been approved by the National
Universities Commission (NUC) , and if
you end up in one of those departments,
you would have wasted your years for
nothing! Because you won’t be given any
original certificate! For example;
Medicine and Surgery has NOT been
accredited in the Benue State University,
BSUM and many others Universities, and
candidates who is admitted into BSUM
will end up spending 8+ years in vain.
How will you know if your course has
been accredited in your choice
You can know this from the Jamb 2015
Brochure that will be given to you when
you purchase the Jamb 2014-2015 UTME
Form. Also you can drop your comment
and we will let you know if you are good
to go.

Tips 8. Most Institutions requires a cut-off
of 240 in the JAMB-UTME. (example of
such institution is University of Ilorin )
the minimum cut off for Medicine in
Unilorin is 240 and 220+ for major
courses, while admission at the
University of Ibadan and Unilag begins
with your O-Level results, herefore, its
very important that you have the basic
requirements of the Institution before
applying for admission. In fact, this apply
to almost all the Institutions in Nigeria.
Ensure you have your COMPLETE
O’LEVEL RESULTS for your chosen
courses before buying Jamb, if you don’t
have, you are only going to frustrate
yourself. Even when you are admitted,
you will be screen out after they collect
your acceptance fee and school fee.

Tips 9. DO NOT apply for admission into
Institutions outside your catchment areas,
else, you risk your chance of being

Tips 10. Take note: Once you have
submitted your application form for the
JAMB 2015/2016 UTME, there is no more
opportunity to initial any change,
therefore, we advice candidates to check
all the fields properly, including passport,
names, first and second institutions,
finger prints before submission, because
all would be verified before you are
admitted for the JAMB 2015 Examination.
