Wondering how the 2020 UTME will be Marked? Well worry no more because the seems who know how.
So many Candidates and Parents have been asking question as to how JAMB 2020 would be marked or scored since JAMB has reduced the number of questions to be answered in the examination.
Yes,it is absolutely true that JAMB has reduced the number of questions to be answered in JAMB Exam.However, JAMB scores will still be marked over 100%.
That’s to say that the total score for Jamb 2020 is 400 and the highest you can get is 400/400 . And the minimum you can score is 0/400.
For example, if you are required to answer 40 questions in Mathematics and you were good enough to score 40/40 , Your score will be divided by 40 multiplied by 100%. Then you have a JAMB score of 100 in Mathematics.
See this below:
- Total Score Obtainable for Mathematics = 40 Marks
- Assuming your score in the subject = 30 Marks
- Total percentage = 100%
Your JAMB score will be (30÷40)×100= 75.
Does it apply to all Subject?
This calculation does not apply to JAMB use of English. JAMB English questions do no carry equal marks.JAMB comprehension passages usually carry more marks (3 Marks each) than other questions.
That is to say , if there are five questions with 3 marks attached after each comprehension passages and JAMB decides to set two passages; then you will score 30 marks by answering only Comprehension passages correctly. Other questions will then sum to 70 marks to complete 100 total marks.
Disclaimer: The above information is a guess work and though might be through is not in any way coming from JAMB.
