2021 low JAMB scores, who’s to blame- JAMB or the Candidates?
Last month, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) released the results of the 2021/2022 exams written by millions of students all over the nation and it turned out to be abysmal.
The board reported that out of 6,944,368 applicants that sat for the entrance examination, only 973,384 passed with scores that can enable them to get into Nigerian institutions. Statistically, it shows that just 14% passed while 86%, (5,970,984) failed woefully.
It’s not the first time that JAMB has recorded a massive failure but this year, the results were depressing.
A survey carried out showed that out of 50 students, you might not find anyone that has a score that qualifies them for tertiary institutions. Universities have had to reduce their cut-off marks from the previous 200 to 180 points and above, except the newly established universities that accept 160.
So the question is Who is to blame for this massive failure: JAMB or the Candidates?
