She can read Mass Communication in UNN(she must pass Mathematics and One science subject), UNIBEN, ABSU and so on.

Thanks

ngstudentforum.com.ng/p/3683/jamb-meets-other-bodies-to-fine-tune-examination-schedule

**[ @Seuncoded: ]** @Sirneij Your Attention is needed please what course can she do with this result?

Alas!! That outstanding Government is irritating and debilitating! Maybe they'll release it.

I'd have said that she should go for social science courses but Economics is bad!

She should check out her brochure and look for English and Literary Studies.

English and Literary Studies can be studied under the Faculty of Arts & Humanitiesin the following Nigerian Universities:

University of Nigeria (UNN),University of Abuja (UNIABUJA),University of Calabar (UNICAL), Babcock University (BABCOCK), Delta State University (DELSU), Gombe State university (GOMSU), Niger Delta University (NDU), kogi State University (KSU), Kwara State University (KWASU), Ekiti State University (EKSU), Akwa Ibom State University (AKUTECH), Caleb University (CALEB), Federal University, Oye-ekiti (FUOYE), Lead City University (LCU), Veritas University, Abuja (VERITAS), Gregory University, Uturu (GUU), Summit University Offa (SUMMIT)

Requirements In UTME, please note that English Language is Compulsory for this course. Therefore, the three (3) other JAMB UTME subject combination needed to study English and Literary Studies under the Faculty of Arts & Humanities in the above Universities include:

Literature-in-English, one other Arts subject and another Arts or Social Science subject.

O'level Requirements The O'level subject combination and requirements needed to study English and Literary Studies are:

Five SSCE credit passes to include Literature in English and English Language.

SPECIAL CONSIDERATION (WAIVER) REMARKS

1. KASU accepts only subjects from Arts or Social Science

2. NDU requires five ‘O’ level credit passes in English, Literature in English and any other three subjects, two of which must be Arts subjects.

3. AKUTECH require five O/L credit passes to include English Language, Literature in English and three other subjects in Arts or Social Science.

4. FUOYE also requires credit pass in one Science subject and at least a pass in Mathematics.

5. UNN requires a Science subject.

**[ @Seuncoded: ]** Thanks for your time

She should also check out mass communication...

ngstudentforum.com.ng/p/5580/jamb-2017-candidates-do-not-relax-use-this-time-to-prepare-a

**To fullfil our promise, We hereby enumerate eight (8) latest updates from JAMB regarding the forthcoming UTME 2017 for all candidates wishing to sit for this years Unified Tertiary Examination, the Examination for admission into Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education in Nigeria.**

While many are gearing up to complete registration for UTME 2017 and prepare academically for the examinations, here are some vital updates they must keep in mind:

**1. Registration has not started:**

It is vital that we begin with this, because many have put up posts that the registration has begun. However, in his latest discussion with newsmen or the press, the JAMB registrar stated clearly that registration has not commenced, but will commence soon. UTME 2017. Therefore, ignore any other news to the contrary as we will be breaking the news, when registration commences.

**2. 1.7 million candidates are expected:**

In 2016, the number of candidates that registered for the exam was: 1,561,443, this year about 200,000 more people are expected. The registrar of JAMB, Prof Ishaq Oloyede himself gave the figure while speaking with students and other bodies. This means that you need to ensure you begin registration as early as possible to get a good centre and avoid been caught in last minute rush.

**3. Mock UTME to be conducted:**

This is also good news for those who are taking the exam for the first time as it will help them have a feel of what it is like, before the pressure of the real thing.

Plans are in place for a mock UTME and this might explain the delay in beginning the sales of the examination forms. So if you are preparing, start your preparations now, so you can do well in both the mock and the real deal.

**4. CBT Centres:**

As the number of espected candidates has increased the board also has plans in the works for more Computer Based Testing (CBT) Centres in order to the make examination exercise far better.

Since there is only one week to satisfy, 1.7 million students, it is totally understandable that more centres will be brought into play.

**5. There Shall Be CCTV:**

Another key feature of the 2017 UTME that students need to keep in mind is that cheating and any other form of examination malpractice is really frowned upon.

To ensure this is enforced, the guideline for CBT centres include: The adoption of CCTV cameras for all of them. This means one thing, the exams will be closely monitored.

**6. Technology Will Be Deployed:**

Also, technology will play a big role in this year’s exam. This is the type of hall to expect as a UTME 2017 candidate:

A single hall containing 250 functional desktop or laptop computer systems with extra 25 as backups.

The computers must be minimum 15 inch screens and must be connected to robust computer server with capacity to carry a minimum of 250 systems concurrently.

**7. Validity Duration:**

Another wonderful news for students is that unlike previous yyears, the result they get from this year’s exam will now be valid for 3 years and not one year as it was previously. The Nigerian Senate passed the extended validity period into law on Thursday, October 13, 2016.

**8. Harmony of timetables:**

Lastly, the organizers of the major examinations, including JAMB met to avoid a clash in schedules and in order to have a harmonized timetable. An agreement was reached at the national headquarters of the Board in Abuja on Tuesday, January 24, after a meeting with National Examination Council (NECO), West African Examination Council (WAEC) and National Business and Technical Examination (NABTEB) to harmonize the timetable.

**[ @Sirneij: ]** Howdy Jambites,

This is Sirneij from ngstudentforum.com.ng

It’s not like I’m an official Jamb representative or anything, I’m just a student who likes sharing ideas and keeping things organized.

This thread is an informational thread that provides you with the latest on 2017/2018 Jamb UTME.

The 2017 Jamb Registration has not started… But here are verified info about the Examination you may wanna know.

**Stoppage** **of** **Scratch** **Card:**

Yeah, this is true.

From 2017, there wont be sales of scratch cards. This does not mean that registration will be free.Scratch card will no be used as a payment channel because it’s discovered to be 'outdated' and prone to fraudulent activities.The new payment options as enumerated by Dr. Benjamin,include quickteller, ATM, remita and some other means.

**Required** **Registration** **items:**

To successfully carry out your 2017 Jamb UTME Registration, you need to have: Details of your O’ level results which maybe available or expected; Personal details of candidates;

Institutions of choice; Courses and preferred examination town of candidates.

**Registration** **Centres'** **fees:**

Jamb 2017 Registration will cost N700 in most registration centres.

Those are the pieces of information available for now. Stay tuned for more.

**[ @Choice: ]**

are u referring to 2017 or 2019

The Informations is for 2017/18 session

Grading Based On Jamb Syllabus For English Language

Have you ever wondered how Jamb mark the use of English as it has 100 Questions unlike the normal 50 Questions which are found in other Subjects?

See how it is graded below:

SECTION A: Comprehension/Summary

(a) 2 comprehension passages – 10 questions, 3 marks each = 30 marks

(b) I cloze passage – 10 questions, 2 marks each = 20 marks

(c) 1 reading text – 15 questions, 1 mark each = 15 marks

= 65 marks

SECTION B: Lexis Structure

(a) Sentence interpretation – 10 questions, 2 marks each = 20 marks

(b) Antonyms – 10 questions, 2 marks each = 20 marks

(c) Synonyms – 10 questions, 1 mark each = 10 marks

(d) Sentence completion – 20 questions, 1 mark each = 20 marks

= 70 marks

SECTION C: Oral Forms

15 questions, 1 mark each = 15 marks

Total: 100 questions 65 + 70 + 15 = 150 marks
