About UTME

UTME means Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination. It is a computer-based qualifying exam into tertiary institutions in Nigeria. JAMB (Joint Admission and Matriculation Board) , the body conducting this exam was created in 1978 .

Back in those days, if you don’t have high jamb score, like 250 and above, you are not ready for higher institution. So because of the high standard then, students wrote JAMB repeatedly and eventually some will have to settle for a course they didn’t bargain for because they couldn’t meet up with the cut-off mark.

But in our present day, the cut-off mark has been lowered
