Can I Call JAMB For Remark of UTME Papers?

JAMB logo
It can be disappointing if you're expecting above 200 in UTME but to your surprise, you have 138. We're all guilty of this feeling whether we get higher marks or not.


In fact, where you have the high mark, you still have the feeling that it should be more than that.


As a result, you may be considering calling for your papers and ask for a remark if the score to get is way below your expectation.


A few candidates had called to know if they could ask JAMB to remark their UTMEs. After all, WAEC and similar other exam bodies allow remarking of the scripts.


Does JAMB allow remarking of questions too? Can you recall your UTME scripts for remarking?


This post will answer your question and clarify more related concerns.

JAMB Welcomes Request to, and Allows Remarking of Papers

In the recent UTMEs, JAMB has confidently announced that candidates wishing to see their papers remarked should call for the board to openly mark again.


As a fair play, the board stated the procedures to take as follows, if you must call for the papers remark.


  1. Visit the board's Headquarters at Abuja
  2. Write and Submit a Letter For UTME Remark
  3. You will be required to pay N10,000 for the paper recall and marking. The fee is non-refundable unless JAMB is eventually guilty of marking you wrongly.
  4. JAMB will in public (with you and pressmen in attendance), remark your papers and grade your live.

Can You Be Wrong if Your Papers are Remarked

In case you want to know the consequences of being wrong, here you have it.


Nothing is wrong with calling for your papers. Yet, it could be disappointing eventually to see that JAMB was right about the final score given to you.


On a few occasions, when candidates recalled their papers for remarking, JAMB eventually was right about their scores. So what happened?


At least before someone would call for a remark, he must have some level of certainty that he did better than he was eventually given. So, why was he wrong?


This is not to discourage you from trying to call for a remark. It's just giving you an insight into what can happen if you do.


If you intend to do this, please do. You're free. And with yours, JAMB might be wrong this time.


And of course, you have nothing other than the N10,000 to lose if the board was right and you're wrong.

Lower JAMB Score Isn't the End

I'm sure it hurt seeing your performance below the expectation. Yet, if you can't recall the paper for remarking or you lose to it eventually, there is more to this.


You can still gain admission with that lower mark if you can just consider a few well-known institutions that will accept lower UTME scores.


And if none of them is to your taste, there are other alternatives to JAMB admissions. You can consider:


  1. Universities offering admissions without JAMB
  2. Polytechnics and colleges offering admissions without JAMB
  3. School of Nursing admissions
  4. School of Health Technology admissions
  5. Advanced Programmes admissions into 200 level
  6. Predegree admissions just to be out of home and resit for UTME next year
  7. National Open University admissions
  8. Daily or Regular part-time programmes admissions
  9. National Teacher Institutes Kaduna admissions


Wishing you luck!
