JAMB 2019 Result Statistics – How Many People Passed Or Failed?
The Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB has given a statistics of the performance of candidates in the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination According to him, 2,906 candidates scored over 300 as against 4,683 in the 2018 results. He added that 57,579 candidates scored between 250 and 299 as against 64,120 in the 2018 results.
Further break down shows that, 366,757 candidates scored between 200 and 249, which he said is a significant improvement from the 2018 results.
361,718 candidates scored between 180 and 199 as against 325,152 in 2018, while 494,484 scored between 160 and 179 as against 455,898 last year.

Looking at this result, it is seen that people generally passed more in 2019 than in 2018 (of course except among the category of people that scored above 300).
Now, the question you should ask is, “will admission be more tough/hard in 2019 compared to 2019?” or others will say “will the cut off marks be lower or higher?”
Admission Might Be Tougher, Don’t Relent Yet
Some people might think that a score above 300 will guarantee them admission in 2019. Let me tell you, THAT IS TOTALLY NOT TRUE.
In case you don’t know, I scored above 300 in my first JAMB and I still didn’t the cut off mark for my course in UI.
Why? What Happened?
I was overconfident and didn’t prepare for the Post UTME at all.
Fortunately (yes fortunately), I didn’t pass the Post UTME and my course was changed to Chemistry.
Now, I have gotten the course I really want after my second UTME and I am happy where I am.
My point is, the JAMB statistics may not totally tell you what Post UTME will look like in 2019.
The questions might be simpler, more people may pass the Post UTME (especially the people that choose the same course with you).
In fact, some people that scored 30-40 marks below my first JAMB score got the course I couldn’t because they worked hard for the Post UTME (and I didn’t).
