In this article you and I will be going through diligently, ‘Jamb Score that assures you admission to your choice of School and Course’. keep reading for details… Enjoy!
There are numerous cases where students with Jamb score of 230 end up not admitted to the school or course of choice but then a student with a Jamb score of lets say 198 gets admitted into his / her school or Course of choice.
This makes students to start wondering, Can I be assured admission with a Jamb Score of 180, 190, 200, 240, 260, 230. If you also find yourself asking these questions then no need to continue searching for answers.

Jamb Score That Assures You Admission 2021
I guess am not the only that must have heard ‘scoring 270 in Jamb means your name is in your school of choice first batch to your desired course’, well, just so you know, this is not true, I for one have seen a student who scored 303 in Jamb and was not given the Course he applied for In Jamb (I won’t call the school so as not to cause unnecessary fear).
But the point am trying to make is that, your Jamb score is only as good as the school and course you applied for. There are certain factors that must be considered concomitantly with your Jamb score before you can say ‘Oh! my Jamb score is high‘ or ‘Oh! my Jamb score is low‘ I will take my time to list these factors and explain each in details…

These Factors Include but not limited to…
- Nature Of Applied Course
- Competitiveness of School of Choice
- General Performance of Student
1. Nature Of Applied Course:
The course you applied for goes a long way in determining how high you should score in Jamb, Now, I guess we already know that some courses are more competitive than others (By competitive I mean more number of students applied to these courses when compared to their sister courses). Here is a case study…
Lets Say we have two Students, A and B, Student A applied to a course like Law and scored 250 in Jamb, while Student B applied for Botany and scored same 250
Between this two students (A and B) who do you think is more likely to be admitted?, It is obviously going to be Student B, but they both had same Jamb score right?, that is where the Course factor comes in.
Law is a very competitive course In Nigeria while Botany is not, So for student applying to courses that are competitive you have a lot of work to do, some of these courses that are competitive include but is not limited to…
- Medicine and surgery
- Communication arts/ Mass communication
- Dentistry / Dental Surgery
- Political Science
- Electrical/Electronic engineering
- Computer Science
If you applied to any of the course highlighted above, then you must aim at scoring above 270 in Jamb to be on a safer side… Now moving to the second factor we have ‘Competitiveness of School of choice‘
2. Competitiveness of School of choice
For those who may not know, your Jamb score is also as good as the school you applied for.
Some schools are more competitive than others, Students who applied to Schools like ABU, UNIBEN, UI, UNILORIN, that are known to have a high number of Jamb applicants have a lot of work to do.
If you must apply to these schools then you must be willing to study diligently and excel…
The higher the admission capacity of a University, the more student they will be able to admit, this can also help increase the chance of student with low Jamb Score, but schools with high admission capacity won’t be of any good to student with low Jamb score.
Below is a list of some of these competitive Universities…
- University of Ilorin (UNILORIN
- Ahmadu Bello University (ABU)
- University of Benin (UNIBEN)
- University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN)
- University of Lagos (UNILAG)
- Bayero University Kano (BUK)
- Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU)
- Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka (UNIZIK)
- University of Ibadan (UI)
- University of Jos (UNIJOS)
The list of Universities above are the top 10 most applied for University in Jamb
3. General Performance of Student
The general performance of student in Jamb is a very very important factor in determining how good your Jamb score, if the general performance of student is poor (lets say, most student had a score within the range of 180 -140) and you were fortunate enough to score above 270, you automatically become an hot cake student.
But if the General performance of student is very high, that is within the range of 260 – 300, then scoring 270 in jamb for that year is not so much of a big deal, you get the picture am trying to paint now right?
So, the higher the success rate of student, the higher the Jamb and School departmental cut off mark, and vice versa.
Suitable Jamb Score For Admission
Haven understood the various factors that affects admission, I have come up with a range of score guided by these factors that is suitable to gain admission to any school of your choice.
