With the new guidelines introduced by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), the admission process for entry into tertiary institutions in Nigeria has changed.  The implication of the point-based system means:
  1. Candidates can no longer go directly to the institutions they applied to seeking admission; they have to get a provisional admission letter from JAMB first.
  2. Admission letter would be issued by JAMB based on points assigned to the O Level and UTME results
  3. For O Level, one sitting attracts 10 points, while two sittings, is assigned two points
  4. The better the O Level results, the more the points (e.g. ;  A=6 marks, B=4 marks, C=3 marks)
  5. For UTME scores, candidates can get between 20 and 60 points (180-200=20-23 points; 200-250=24-33 points, 251-300=34-43 points, 300-400=44-60 points)
  6. Pont-based system for Direct Entry candidates still being developed
  7. Yes, candidates will still be screened by universities, polytechnics and colleges of education after getting a provisional admission letter from JAMB
  8. Yes, candidates will pay for the screening
  9. Cut-off marks to be stipulated by institutions for courses would be point-based
