How To Secure Admission for JAMB Students Who Scored Below 150-179

Gain admission

This article will guide all candidates with JAMB scores ranging from 150 to 179. We have created this thread as an eye opener to give you an idea of what that score can or cannot do for you as far as 2016/17 admission into Nigerian tertiary institutions are concerned.

As we all know JAMB has released the official cutoff mark for this year which is 180 JAMB Admission Cut-off Marks For 2016  we know from experience that scores between 150 to 179 can only gain admission into Colleges of Education and Polytechnics. The best thing to do at this moment therefore is to decide which of (1) College of Education and (2) Polytechnic is best suited for your career goals.

To be honest,  NO UNIVERSITY WILL ADMIT YOU with 150 – 179 this year. It is better to switch your most preferred institution to either Polytechnic or College of Education to enable you stand a chance for admission into ND or NCE respectively (as the case may be).

Kindly also note that while obtaining between 150 – 179 in JAMB allows you to participate in Post UTME of a College or Polytechnic, it does not give you a guarantee for admission into all courses offered in such school.

Do NOT apply for competitive courses like Engineering, Science Lab Tech, Computer Science, etc. Simply select courses that have lesser number of applicants. Try to meet friends in the school you have interest in and let them guide you.
Again to make sure you beat Post UTME and increase your chances of getting admission into Polytechnics, we recommend the use of Post UTME Past Questions and Answers for revision.

Finally, you may decide to apply for Pre-degree or Part Time Programme if the suggestion above did not favor you. Or better still, wait for next year. We are hopeful you now know what to do if your JAMB score is between 150 – 179.
