Looking at this result, it is seen that people generally passed more in 2020 than in 2019.
Now, the question you should ask is, “will admission be more tough/hard in 2020 compared to 2019?” or others will say “will the cut off marks be lower or higher?”
Admission Might Be Tougher, Don’t Relent Yet
Some people might think that a score above 300 will guarantee them admission in 2020. Let me tell you, THAT IS TOTALLY NOT TRUE.
In case you don’t know, I scored above 300 in my first JAMB and I still didn’t the cut off mark for my course in UI.
Why? What Happened?
I was overconfident and didn’t prepare for the Post UTME at all.
Fortunately (yes fortunately), I didn’t pass the Post UTME and my course was changed to Chemistry.
Now, I have gotten the course I really want after my second UTME and I am happy where I am.
My point is, the JAMB statistics may not totally tell you what Post UTME will look like in 2020.
The questions might be simpler, more people may pass the Post UTME (especially the people that choose the same course with you).
In fact, some people that scored 30-40 marks below my first JAMB score got the course I couldn’t because they worked hard for the Post UTME (and I didn’t).

The registrar, Prof. Oloyede also said that about 1,792,719 candidates sat for the exams, while 34,120 candidates had their results withheld for examination malpractice also 15,145 results were withheld for further clarification.
He mentioned that some of the irregularities that marred the 2020 UTME include; multiple registration, manipulation of biometrics, impersonation and deliberate destruction of power sources during the examination.
He mentioned a case of some one registering 23 times for just a single examination.
He said that the many arrests has been made and so far 116 centres had been delisted for various infractions, saying that 18 of the 116 centres were previously sanctioned by the governing board of JAMB.
