    The Nigerian education has failed to help students acquire the knowledge needed to pass this exam.

    A for Aristo, B for Buy me Blackberry, C for Chatting,...F for Fail...
    Well, students lackadaisical attitude towards studying is questionable. Or we blame the goverment for a student who has refused to study and wants to pass an exam?

    It's no wonder that the canker worm ravages the nation. "No chance for Mediocrity" - This is the strict law of JAMB but JAMB is nothing but a Mediocre" They collected full money (almost 6.9 billion Naira) from candidates and tell them to bring nothing to the exam hall. To my utmost amazement someone told me that they did not supply calculator. Can anybody tell me why JAMB should not be punished? Who will save poor and wretched Nigeria Students form this casket called JAMB? Well, JAMB is meant to be competitive, you can't have 500,000 applicants competing for 500,000 space.
    So having a competition where 1 out of 3 will be successful is fair. N5000 per form to generate a total of 75bn is very unfair and its exploitation. They either put the money into building more higher institutions hence creating more space, or reduce the cost of the form to N1000 or less.

    Heyyyyy !! I failed jamb twice o. I left naija, happily, for England. That was long long time ago. I'm now a solicitor. Was i dumb or could it be that I deliberately failed jamb twice so that my dad would allow me to return to UK? Dad's been told the answe. The things we did when we were young.

    I think jamb is meaningless and pointless. It should be scrapped. Naija's education system is in need of major overhaul.

    @ Ada1T Mar 30, 2012 02:24 PM, kindly educate us. Exactly what is an idices of underdevelopment? That UTME is no longer what it used to be? Or the fact that over 1.5 million candidates sat for the exam? Waiting for the enlightenment, you can't be at a trajectory and then fizzle out. Carry us along.

    By the way hope the statistics above will shut a good number of loud mouths out there who waggle their tongues to utter such false profanities of Ibos not going to school but rather busy themselves to become models and trading.

    Just between Imo and Anambra alone came over 200, 000 prospective under graduates excluding Ebonyi, Abia, Enugu and the Ibo speaking communities in Delta and Rivers.

    A pity though that less than four scored above 300. Now that's something to brood about. Yeah, it's serious. FB, nintendo, P.S, LIB, pinging etc is keeping teenagers from scoring high marks in JAMB.

    Look at the number of candidates that registered from the core northern states. What a shame!Instead of their leaders to talk about how to bring real transformation to the grassroots, they are busy, stirring up jealousy in their hearts for southerners because of oil revenue.Now they say the country will split if a northerner does not emerge president 2015. What did they do with the 38yrs that they ruled? Wake up northerners! Education is key. If u don't stop now you will continue to self destruct. The southerners are far ahead in everything!

    if d whole 1.5 million passed d exam,its impossible for them to get admission in to the few universities we have across the nation..so JAMB is just a hoax to deny candidates of their right for good education. D real issues need to be tackled. How many institutions has been created by our state and fredral government in d past 2 decades? And d number of candidates is increasing every year.so by 2020 we have 5million candidates and still have dis few institutions around.hmmmmm....we have to grow..d educational system is not improving..thank u...demmy

Some people even came with their senior ones who kept making calls for expo. My sister even said their invigilator was just relaxed n not bothered when people were getting texts in the exam and using their phones.
    So with all that drama, only 3 people scored above 300! JAMB na wa o

    We spend too much time criticing students for not doing well- how about having an annual examination for teachers and the parents of these students?? Only then would we know who has failed our students. The education system has failed our children, the teachers have failed their children, the parents have failed their children and the children have failed themselves- we can't just blame the teachers alone!

    The standard of education in this country is very poor, students don't want to study anymore that's why we keep producing half-baked graduates. The "Miracle" centers springing up here and there are the major factors causing these problems they make the students so dependent on them that they see studying as a waste of time. God help Nigeria.
