JAMB 2018: Over 1.1 Million Candidates Scored Above 100/400


Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, Registrar, JAMB, disclosed
this when members of the Presidential Advisory
Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) led by its
Chairman, Prof. Itse Sagay, visited the board’s
headquarters in Abuja.

The Registrar said out of 1,840,225 candidates who
wrote the examination, only 800,000 had the five
credits ordinary level (O’ level) minimum
requirements.

He further revealed that “There are 767 tertiary higher
institutions in Nigeria and about 560,168 candidates
have been admitted. About 20 per cent of the
candidates are in SS2, they only took JAMB for
trials.”

The JAMB registrar said the collusion of parents in
examination malpractices remained a major challenge
for the Board.

According to him, most parents have
gone haywire in their desire to ensure their children
pass the examination at all cost. He expressed his
displeasure on how parents paid huge amount of
money into fraudulent account in order to pave way
for their wards.
