What is JAMB?
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), otherwise known as Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) is the is Nigeria’s official entrance examination board for tertiary-level institutions. The examinations being administered are available for most students who choose to apply to Nigerian public and private Monotechnics, Polytechnics, and Universities. Most of these candidates must already have concluded their external examinations, administered either by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) or the Nigerian National Examinations Council (NECO).
ABOUT JAMB EXAMINATION
By 1974, there were seven federal universities in the country. Every one of these existing universities conducted its own concessional examination and admitted its students. However, this system of admission revealed serious limitations and quite often waste of resources in the process of administering the concessional examination, especially on the part of the candidates. The general untidiness in the uncoordinated system of admissions into universities and the attendant problems were sufficient cause for concern to the committee of vice chancellors.
In the 2009 University Matriculation Exam, the grading system of the normally reputable examination body was subject to serious controversy when the overall performance was one of the poorest on records. Much to JAMB’s embarrassment, it was later revealed that the machines which optically graded the papers had erroneous answers and the JAMB changed some student’s scores by as much as 15%. These problems had assumed new dimensions when by 1976, the then Federal Military Government, under the leadership of General Olusegun Obasanjo, established six additional universities. Consequently, the government set up a national committee on university entrance under the chairmanship of Mr. M. S. Angulu.
