Sunday, 1 April 2018


No fewer than ninety students, who registered for the just concluded examination conducted by the Joint Administration and Matriculation Board, JAMB, yesterday protested along the major streets of Abakaliki over their inability to participate in the exams.

The students claimed that they were denied opportunity of writing the exams in some of the centres in the state.

The leader of the protesters, who identified herself as Okorie Felicia, said that the situation worsened when the candidates were split into two at the Stella Maris Centre in Ohaukwu local government area of Ebonyi State as there was insufficient space.

She noted that the hall and available computers could not accommodate all the students, lamenting that after the first session, there was no time to conduct the exams for the second batch.

The protesters also included other candidates who alleged of what they described as “mysterious” disappearance of their results in the Board website after it had been reportedly released.

They carried placards with various inscriptions such as: “JAMB don’t frustrate our academic pursuit; we are disappointed in JAMB; we were denied exams after registration; JAMB release our results”, among others.


Okorie noted that the JAMB officials told them to wait that their exams would be rescheduled since there was no space and computers to accommodate them but that did not happen.
She said: “we were supposed to have our exams on March 10, 2018 by 9 a.m. About 95 of us were asked to wait that we will write our exams before another segment by 1pm. We waited patiently but those accommodated in the 9 a.m segment extended to the afternoon exams. Since them, the JAMB officials have not done anything to reschedule the exams for us”.
Another candidate, Ugwu Peter said: “my own case is that I checked my result and I scored 274 but on going to print the result, no mark was found. I screenshot the result on my phone but it disappeared when I went back to print it out. Nobody has told me what happened since then and I am afraid of what may have happened to the result.”
When contacted, the Ebonyi State JAMB Coordinator, Mrs Jane Iheme said she was not aware of any protest by the candidates, asking “where did you say the candidates protested? If you want to publish what happened, go ahead,” she stated.

Can I Gain Admission Without JAMB ?? See 10 Ways You Can

Yes, you can gain Admission without JAMB in Nigeria and even abroad, it is hightime you started trying other means of admission other than JAMB.

If you had a low JAMB score this year, dont lose hope of admission yet; there are other ways you can gain admission to further your studies without JAMB Exam or using JAMB exam as a prerequesite with just any score above 180.

If you are among those searching for how they can get admission without JAMB, you should breathe a sigh of relieve and read down this page.


    You do not require JAMB to gain admission into the National Open University Of Nigeria (NOUN). Noun certificate is generally recognized internationally and there are even rumours that it stands more starndard outside the country.
    Many nigerian  students are currently on their degree programs in NOUN and lots of them got in there without JAMB.
    You can check out more about Noun and decide wether or not to give it a try.

    The Independent Joint Matriculation Board have also created a system through which you can gain admission into Nigerian schools without JAMB. The most intresting thing about IJMB is that after the program, you will be admitted into a university of your choice in Nigeria which you merit to continue from 200lv. The program runs for just one year making it look like you just started your year one studies with others even with a JAMB score that maybe low than 180.
    Some Nigerian students today in popular universities like UNIZIK, FUTO et.c got in through IJMB without JAMB so it is obvious you can get admission without JAMB through IJMB so you can think of trying out this option. Same applies to JUPEB in a way.

    For Diploma Programs, you can get admission into a Nigerian university with your Diploma cert if you have a good grade.

    Pre-degree and Pre-science programs work just the same way. For beneficiaries of this program, it is a much more easier way to gain admission into the university of ones choice. Pre-degrees programs are run in the school area making the participants feel like students already. They mingle with the year one students, attend tutorials with them, share lecturers with them and even use same materials with them. This gives an advantage over other students if they get admitted into the university the next year.

    After a successful Predegree program, parrticipants are admited to start formerly as the students of that university from year one. It is also a good option to try out, you don't need JAMB to be admitted into a university for this program but you will necessarily need to cross the JAMB 180 cutoff point before you will be considered for admission after the program.
    Now that JAMB minimum cutoff mark has reduced to 120, you may get lucky to get admission with a lower score.
    This is a way-forward now, many Nigerians are going outside the country to study both with scholarship and without scholarship. If you want to avoid totally the stress of getting admission in Nigeria and the stress of going through a Nigerian university, then you've got to think this option. If you would need to study abroad either with scholarship or self sponsored, you can visit sites like, they post scholarship opportunities daily and guide students on how to get easy scholarships abroad.
If there is any question you have on this or anything you would want to add, you can make use of the comment box below to express yourself, I will reply.
