So many Candidates and Parents have been asking me questions as to how Jamb 2020 would be marked or scored since Jamb has reduced the number of questions to be answered in the examination. Some questions goes like;
- What is the total mark of JAMB?
- How many points do i need to pass JAMB?
- How many correct answers do I need to pass JAMB?
Yes, it is absolutely true that Jamb has reduced the the number of questions to be answered in Jamb 2020. However, Jamb scores will still be marked over 100%. That’s to say that the total score for Jamb 2020 is 400 and highest you can get is 400/400.
One of the aims of this article is to refresh JAMBite mind on the fake belief that JAMB Marking Scheme is a scam. You should take note that in the year 2014 & 2015, 70% of jamb candidates, who participated in the JAMB-UTME examination scored below the 180 point aggregate.
JAMB UTME Subjects Combination
Note that the JAMB UTME Examination subject comprises of the following which are listed below:
1: Use of English – Which is mandatory for all candidates.
2: Any three relevant subject – which fully depends on the choice made by the candidates.
You should be aware, that the Use of English is made up of 100 questions.
While the other three subjects, according to Candidates course, is made up of fifty (50) questions each.
Also take note that the JAMB examination is made up of 300 questions.
JAMB Allocated Time

You should note that each subject in Jamb examination carries 100 marks, which makes the examination, a total 400 marks for the four (4) subjects (That is, if you answer all the questions correctly)
The truth is that candidates can score as high as 400 over 400. It is very possible to score this, but have you ever seen or heard of anyone scoring as high as 400/400?
Jamb Negative Marking (Do Jamb participates in Negative Marking)
There has been lots of speculation about this issue. Some people are with the notion, while others oppose that the notion of JAMB using negative marking scheme.
What is Negative Marking
In negative marking, if you fail or wrongly answered a question, it will automatically cancel one right answer.
However, we want to make it extra clear here today on this websites, that JAMB does not support Negative Marking. In Jamb, you’re graded with the exact mark you answered correctly.
