MUST Read for all JAMBites Sitting for the 2024 JAMB Examination

After seeing millions of (jambites) confused in certain areas like “cutoff mark for admission into Universities and Polytechnics”, I decided to write this important article that potentially covers everything regarding the JAMB examination and how it works.

I also discovered that there are scammers online, who are asking students to pay them money to upgrade their JAMB RESULT. There is absolutely nothing about upgrading JAMB results. The scripts are written online, marked and published online via the JAMB official portal, before you can view them, so how can someone upgrade your result?

Talking about cut off marks, please be informed that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Cut off mark for the majority of the Polytechnics in Nigeria is 120, as of last year. The 2024 JAMB cut off marks for admission is NOT YET OUT.

Also, Internet Fraudsters grew in their numbers this year, and they defrauded desperate JAMBites who want to upgrade their score, which is impossible to do.

• Some of the fraudsters sent bulk SMS to the Jambites using Sender names bearing acronyms like: “JAMB” and “JAMB PORTAL”, and instructed candidates to pay in particular amount of money into accounts, so they could have their results upgraded for them.

Please note that JAMB will never send you a message that you can upgrade your result. Please don’t let these scammers use you to bank this year and buy Mercedes.

How can someone you don’t know upgrade your score? Is the internet a place of Magic?

I have also come across websites especially, spam comments, where some persons will be claiming that some professors have helped them upgrade their scores, please note that these are fraudsters and don’t have access to the JAMB database. They can even go as far as documenting and using lamination to laminate results and say that they can also help you. It’s totally impossible and don’t allow anyone to fool you into paying money into their account.

How To Write and Pass JAMB CBT 2024 UTME Examination

Note that you’re not required to be a guru in computers before you can answer any CBT question. The computer you will use will be ON, so you’re not required to switch it ON and the JAMB software will be open in all the computers/laptops for the examination, so you don’t need to start searching the computer archives for the software.

Just take note that the only thing you will type on the computer is the following:

  • Your JAMB Registration Number.

While the only thing needed from you is to just click the correct answers and move to the next page.

THE left mouse button of the mouse is what you will use mostly for the examination, because it’s like the MARK button.

Make sure your mouse is working before you input your JAMB Reg no. Just move it and know whether the
mouse pointer is moving. because if it’s not moving, you won’t answer a single question.


The login page include the following:

A white and green page where you will input your JAMB registration number and click on submit.

ALL the computers are timed at the following:

THREE (3) hours, Forty-five (45) minutes, Thirteen (13) seconds.

The first page you will see is where the instruction is.

Just proceed and read the instructions carefully, then click the “Start”, automatically, the timer will commence.

The subjects which you choose while registering for the JAMB examination will appear. You can click on any of the subjects you want to start with.

Please note that there are 3 buttons which are the following:

  • Previous,
  • Next,
  • Finish.

There’s also an option where you can easily skip a question and come back to it.

A red indication will be blinking on the number you have not answered, which is a sort of notification.

The comprehension will appear fully on each question of the comprehension, so there is no need writing down or cramming the comprehension.

After you have answered all questions, or when you see the timer at 10 seconds, if you have not finished answering all questions, I’d advise you to kindly click on the SUBMIT. This is important.

What You Must Know.

1. There is no law that says you must answer the number 1 question before the Number 2 or that you must answer Chemistry before physics, it’s your choice on which subject you choose to start with.

Please ensure that you answer the simple ones you are sure of first before others.

Likewise, do not forget to say your prayers BEFORE you input your JAMB Reg No to start to avoid stories that touch from the Timer.
