JAMB CBT Marking Scheme For 2016 UTME

Candidates who are about to sit for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination have been asking for JAMB CBT Marking Scheme for the ongoing 2016 UTME. To help those who don’t know what marking scheme means, it may be defined as an educational terminology used to describe a plan or guidelines used in the marking of school children’s or students’ written work (exam or test) by teaching staff (or exam body). 

  NIGERIAN SCHOOL NEWS have made contacts with the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board to figure out JAMB marking scheme for 2016 Computer Based Test whose results are currently being released on a daily basis. While we are not categorically sure of any hidden secrets behind the marking system, we believe that the information contained below will show candidates how their papers are marked. First, recall that JAMB gives an aggregate of two hundred and fifty questions to each candidate. Out of these 250 answerable questions are 100 from Use of English Language and average of 50 each from three (3) other subjects chosen by the student.

The total (highest) score a candidate can obtain in JAMB is 400 – of which no one has been able to get this mark as history would have it. So whatever score a candidate have is graded over 400. Since all questions carry equal marks the mathematics involved in calculation of each candidates’ score can be as thus. Let’s say you obtain 180 correct answers out of 250 questions given. This would give you (180/250 * 400%) = (0.72 * 400%) = 288. This calculation is generalized for aggregate/total score but similar step is followed to know scores subject-by-subjects.
To score high and meet 2016/17 cut off mark you need to prepare for this examination using up-to-date JAMB CBT software
If you have written and seen your result and have less than 200, we suggest you visit this link to check list of schools that take 180 for Post UTME.
