JAMB Point For O'level:
The JAMB point for 1 sitting is 10
While The JAMB point for 2 sitting is 2
This means candidates who passed their WAEC or NECO once without combining results have 10points and also have a better chance of admission.

JAMB Point for O'level Grades
A (A1) = 6 marks,
B (B1, B2, B3) = 4 marks
C (C4, C5, C6) = 3 marks

The final criteria is your UTME score. The scores are divided into ranges and each ranges are assigned with points that will be using to offer admission. The ranges are;
180 – 185 --------20 Points
186 – 190--------21points
191 -195---------22points
196 – 200--------23points
201 – 205--------24points
206 – 210--------25 Points
211 – 215--------26 Points
216 -220---------27 Points
221 -225--------28 Points
226 -23----------29 Points
231 -23----------30 Points
236 – 240--------31 Points
241 – ---------32 Points

He Presents Only One WAEC Result=10 Points
He Has 1A, 2B And 2C In The Necessary Subjects. 1 A: 1 X 6 = 6points
2 B: 2 X 4 = 8points
2 C: 2 X 3 = 6points
His Total Points = 32+10+6+8+6 =62 Points
