They are a lot of confusing posts on this topic; JAMB Marking Scheme 2021, but definitely we have come to find the answer to our long unanswered questions and of course official. This information was carried out by interviewing JAMB officials/Admin and searching through JAMB Syllabus before coming up with this piece. So, be rest assured that nothing is left out in this post. Yet, I make it as concise as possible for you.
I will break things down by subjects.
- JAMB Method Used to Mark/Score English in UTME
Use of English is 60 questions in all. This means JAMB will set 60 English questions for all candidates irrespective of their proposed university courses.
But this doesn’t mean that the total score for the Use of English is 60 marks in all. In fact, it’s 100 marks for this compulsory subject.
UTME English Marking: Evaluation/Assessment
SECTION A: Comprehension/Summary
Comprehension passages questions: 3 marks each
Cloze passage* questions: 2 marks each
Reading text (Sweet Sixteen) questions: 1 mark each
*A cloze passage is a reading comprehension exercise in which words have been omitted in a systematic fashion. Students fill in the blanks, and their responses are counted correctly if they are exact matches for the missing words. This is also called REGISTER.
SECTION B: Lexis Structure
Sentence interpretation questions: 2 marks each
Antonyms questions: 2 marks each
Synonyms questions: 1 mark each
Sentence completion questions: 1 mark each
SECTION C: Oral Forms
Question test on oral: 1 mark each
If the total score for English set for you is 60 but you scored 50, JAMB concludes to this calculation: 45/60 x 100 (in percentage). Then, your mark will be 75%
This calculation conforms with the official JAMB syllabus explanation in their 100 questions standard.
Use of English Questions Break-Down
SECTION A: Comprehension/Summary
(a) 1 comprehension passage – 5 questions
(b) I cloze passage – 10 questions
(c) 1 reading text – 10 questions
SECTION B: Lexis and Structure
(a) Sentence interpretation – 5 questions
(b) Antonyms – 5 questions
(c) Synonyms – 5questions
(d) Sentence completion – 10 questions
SECTION C: Oral Forms 10 questions
Total: 60 questions
- JAMB Method Used to Mark Other Three Subjects UTME
Since you have other three subjects apart from English, below is the official marking scheme for them.
JAMB sets 40 questions each for the other subjects. Each of these questions is graded or scored 2.5 marks. Hence, the three subjects = 300 marks (i.e 40 x 2.5 x 3 subjects). In other words, each of the three other subjects will be 100 if marked 2.5 (40 x 2.5)
The Calculation for Each of the Other Subjects
If you score 35 over 40 in each of Chemistry, Physics and Biology (for example), JAMB concludes to this calculation: 25 x 2.5 = 63% (in percentage). This is 25/40 in %.
Let’s assume the same in the other two subjects. Each of the other two gives you 63%.
Finally, your UTME score will be: 75 + 63 + 63 + 63 = That’s 264 over 400
