The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) was established for the general control of the conduct of Unified Tertiary matriculation examinations such as UTME for admissions into all universities, polytechnics, monotechnics, colleges of education and (recently added) Innovation Enterprise Institutes (IEIs) in Nigeria.

Section 5 (2) of the ACT establishing the Board provided as stated: For the avoidance of doubt, the Board shall be responsible for determining matriculation requirements and conducting examinations leading to undergraduate
admissions and also for admissions to National Diploma and the Nigerian Certificate in Education courses.

But shall not be responsible for examinations or any other selective process for postgraduate courses and any other courses offered by the tertiary institutions.

In the implementation of this section, there is always a synergy with the National Universities Commission (NUC), the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) and the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE) with the endorsement of the National Council on Education( NCE).

JAMB In exercising this power, the Board is always guided by admission guidelines approved by the Policy Meeting under the Chairmanship of the Hon. Minister of Education with all Heads of Tertiary Institutions and other stakeholders in attendance.

Since the inception of the Interim Joint Matriculation Board Examination (IJMB), JAMB appoints moderators for all its questions as well as the grading of candidates scores.

It has always done this without failing to still accommodate ‘HSC’ within the current 6-3-3-4 system.
