Did You Had A Low JAMB Score? See How You Can Gain Admission With It

From the previous post I published concerning jamb result, I posted that Jamb result has been released and uploaded on individual Jamb profile by the management of the joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB). So if you have written Your Own Jamb exam and you are yet to check your Jamb result, Click Here to see how to Check Your Jamb Score.


This post is entirely for those who have checked their Jamb result but had a low Jamb score and don’t know what to do about it.

Do you have a low Jamb score?

Is your Jamb score not up to the cutoff mark for your Course or University?

Is your Jamb score very low and you don’t know what to do?

If you fall into one of the categories mentioned above, then we are going to guide you on how you can make your decisions so as to get admission into either a University, Polytechnic or colleges of education depending on your Jamb Score.

We are going to analyse different cases depending on the JAMB and the course or school the individual applied for.

See JAMB Caps Portal for checking admission status here and also check when JAMB admission list will come out here.

How To Gain Admission With A Low JAMB Score Into A University

Case 1: Those that scored Less than 250 and applied for Medicine and Surgery.

This one is for those who applied to study medicine in the University but on checking their Jamb result, they scored lower than 250.

Fact: Any score less than 250 in this year’s  Jamb may or can not get you admission to study medicine because of the high competition of those that applied for the course.

Advice: Do a change of course or a change of course and institution into a lower course and possibly a less competitive University which you can have more chances and high edge of getting admission.

Case 2: Those that scored more than 180 but less than 200.

This is for those who applied for a course in the University but their Jamb score is less than 200 but they at least scored more than 180.

Advice: If you have the range of score above and you applied for a highly competitive course in the University, please do a change of course to a University that accepts 180 and to a less competitive course. Depending on the competition, it may be very hard to  get admission into a University with a Jamb score of 180. But with that score, you have a high chance of getting admission into a Polytechnic of your choice. So you may increase your chances of getting admission by just doing a change of institution into a Polytechnic and forget about University.

See JAMB Change Of Course And Institution; See When To Do It

Case 3: Those that scored less than 180 but more than 170.

This is for those whose jamb score could not meet up with the 180 requirement for Universities.

Advice: You can’t get admission into any University with a Jamb score that is less than 180 but you can still get admission into a Polytechnic or a College of Education with that score. So, do a Change of Institution and course into a Polytechnic.

Case 4: Those that scored Lower Than 170 in Jamb but initially or currently applied to study in a University.

Fact: No University or even Polytechnic (depending on the Competition) in the whole of Nigeria can admit any candidate who has a Jamb score that is less than 180 due to the high score that a lot of people are getting lately.

Advice: Please do a change of course and Institution to a College of education or perhaps just buy their form when it’s out on sale.

But if you don’t want to attend a college of education, you can wait till next Year or Perhaps go for a Private University.

Schools To Get Admission Without JAMB

If your JAMB Score is really very low, there is also a way you can gain admission into the University without loosing any year. See Universities That Offer Admission Without JAMB.

That’s it guys on the advice concerning Jamb score breakdown. I do hope this will be very helpful and do please share this with others and help them as well.

  40. this is to inform you people that the center that l was posted to did a very wrong thing to us in their center this because we were more than two hundred in this center the first Bach that was scheduled at 7 am they did their exam peacefully without any distraction we didn’t know what happened to them they end up their exam at 11:30 am immediately we that will supposed to start our exam at 9 am they now start search and thumb printing for us at to 12 noon the most bad thing that the useless invigilator that was posted to our center did is that she does not allow us to complete with our 2 hours out of tow hundred plus candidate the first and last person she stop us at the same time. also, there was a girl she was the one that got into in last she told us that she just through with her physics 1 out of 4 please tell me how come just like 2% over 100%, I still have about 40 minutes left because I have rushed 2 out of 4 but nevertheless I lost about 48% out of my mark some still have 47 55 58 44 minutes among us but this woman ordered is member to wiped up our exam out of screen. I personally I will not forgive her, till hereafter because my target is 180 or 200 but useless idiot woman let me end up with 171. my center is WEST HIGH SCHOOL , ojokoro village ikorodu Lagos. Lagos State.

  41. my jamb score Is poor.
    i scored 188 I don’t know if I can gain admission with it?
    I want to study LAW
    and I put ESUT as my first choice

  42. I scored 226 in jamb can i gain admission to the university of ibadan for physioterapy.if not advise me on the kind of course i can change to.

  43. Thanks mr Ben. Assuming nw… One score 183 nd d cutoff mark of d school of choice is 180 nd d course cutoff mark is 180…. Can dat person hav hope?

    • You need to change. Cos a lot of People with more than 200 jamb score will still apply for that Course and they will be admitted first because they have higher JAMB Score.

      • Thnks… But d cutoff mark of my course of choice is 180 nd i score 183….. D course is education field at unilorin

  44. I have two comments here that need immediate response with a good and clear advice.
    Firstly, I scored 208 in my Jamb but initially I intended to study medicine and surgery at Unilorin but due to my poor mark, I couldn’t wish so any longer. So what course do you think and mostly preferable I could process now with 208 basically on medicine field?
    secondly, although sometimes I do wish to go for Computer Science as a course to study in school cuz I do have keen in computer from the very beginning but unfortunately I registered for:
    1. use of English
    2. Physics
    3. Biology and;
    4. chemistry.
    And from what I’ve been reading on the net and heard from peeps so far concerning studying Computer Science in any tertiary institutions, one must write Mathematics in Jamb but instead I wrote Physics in place due to my final divine course to study (Medicine and Surgery), so now what’s ur opinion on this on what to do and which University and course is good to study and go for???
