How to Study JAMB Brochure to Avoid Errors (2022/2023)

JAMB Brochure is a must-read
It can be underrating to believe that everybody should know what the brochure is and how to use it. 

Sincerely, it’s not what you may be thinking. People, especially admission seekers can disappoint you if you ask them about the brochure. Some had never heard of the term not to mention using it. I hope you’re not one. If you’re, don’t worry. The post below will help you get it all clear. Just spare some minutes and pay undivided attention.

What is JAMB Brochure and How to Get it?

First, let’s look at what a JAMB Brochure is. This is a pack or guide (usually a book; in the past years but now on CD ROM or PDF downloadable from the internet) prepared to guide admission seekers on the admission requirements for their proposed institutions and courses.

A candidate is expected to go through this pack before applying for UTME/DE. This guide shows candidates; the list of government-approved institutions. It also gives enlists the courses in each school and under which faculties they’re run. By this, it will clear your confusion on whether your interested course is in that school or not. And where it’s not, which other schools are offering it. There’re more areas it covers though. I will talk about the rest shortly.

To get a JAMB brochure, you should visit a CBT centre before your registration and ask for it. Though they’ll only give you a CD for now as JAMB has stopped providing the paper type. You can also talk to a friend, brother, or sister who had got a copy in the recent UTME. If this is not available or CBT centres are not accessible, you can use my Mini JAMB brochure which covers more than 100 courses and their UTME subject combination. Each link in the brochure will take you to a list of schools offering those courses and their requirements.

You can also visit the JAMB official brochure page to study it online or download it to your computer or mobile device to study.

No need to worry about the volume or size of the pack, you can just download the faculty to which your proposed course is. I had helped you get direct links to download this brochure - by faculties.

Follow any of the links below for yours. Before you view or download, make sure you have a PDF reader on your computer or mobile device.

How to Study, Understand and Use the JAMB Brochure

First, let me give you a page from the faculty of LAW.
In the picture above (you can click on it to zoom bigger), BAYERO is the name JAMB gives to Bayero University Kano – so don’t be confused. The University of Ibadan is only represented by IBADAN, the University of Ilorin is called ILORIN, University of Lagos – LAGOS. Don’t be confused because they don’t use your regulars like BUK, UNILAG, UI, UNILORIN, etc. Some schools are called like that anyway e.g OAU, ABU, EKSU, UNIOSUN, etc.

Now, let’s focus our attention on BAYERO for General Requirements, UTME section, and most importantly, Special considerations (waiver) remarks. See my explanation below.


Five (5) 'O' level credit passes in Arts or Social Sciences to include English Language and Islamic Studies or Arabic.

(Under the requirements section, it means all universities can accept 5 O’level credits passes which BAYERO did not object. That is, - they also accept this condition).

UTME Subject Combination

Any three (3) Arts or Social Science subjects including Arabic or Islamic Studies

(Under UTME section, all schools can accept English and ANY 3 Arts/social science subjects as your UTME subjects) But BAYERO objects to this! That takes us to special consideration now.


(i) BAYERO requires Islamic Studies/Arabic and Literature-in- English for Common and Islamic Law.

(This means, for BAYERO Law, you don’t just have to write ANY 3 arts or social science subjects in UTME, TWO of the 3 must be Islamic Studies or Arabic, and Literature-in- English is compulsory.

BAYERO still has special consideration for JAMB Direct Entry applicants under the same special consideration. See it below

(i) BAYERO does not accept NCE.

Do you now see that though it’s not easy to get and study the JAMB brochure, if you can, it pays off? Most candidates only read the general requirements and UTME sections without reading the special considerations. Believe me; this special consideration section is MUCH MORE important.

If you still find anything doubting, consult a qualified and experienced education consultant.

You can equally ask me questions in the comment section below. I should provide you answers almost immediately and update the post to help others.

    1. Those people are wrong. The two exams are combinable. If a school will not accept that, they will state it in their admission adverts. However, with all indications, all schools are accepting as the time of this reply.

  3. Sir pls schools that accept neco and nabteb

    1. All schools are accepting the two exams except a few school of nursing that are not accepting NAMBTEB. For any schools, NECO is acceptable. Read more through the link below.

      You can use awaiting results and write another SSCE to replace the other one.

      Or you consider courses and schools accepting D7 in Chemistry instead.

    1. It simply means, it's the requirements under GENERAL, as stated by JAMB, they will accept too.
