Your Score.

So today we were reading on students complaining about the cut off mark for JAMB and then we got to talking about JAMB, and just as I knew someone was bound to say, I heard the words "Abeg exams are not a true test of intelligence". Yeah right, I don't disagree but why does it seem that people who say this are likely to fail or have failed exams?

Anyhoooooo, we got to talking about JAMB scores, some like me didn't mind sharing our scores, others did. And because I like to know things like these of course I'm going to have to ask you, let's know the Gurus and the blunt knives (sorry!) in the house. LOL. 

So for those of us who took JAMB, what was your score?

Oh, some people wrote JAMB more than once, what were your scores?

Where are those who don't remember what they scored in JAMB? HOW OLD ARE YOUUUUU? (Really, is it possible not to remember? I even remember my primary school Common Entrance score). 

Ehen, those that wrote JAMB in special centers please signify beside your score. *Big Grin*. For those who don't know, "special centers" are those exam locations where they are more or less given the exam answers alongside the questions. 

Ok guys, start talking. Be honest.

...forgot to add mine; 251 in 2002. 


  1. But you haven't talked n'a.

  2. 218. I wrote JAMB in one strict centre where you are not allowed to use calculator and MOPO on standby for any shady movement. First and only JAMB.J

  3. To be sincere, I wrote jamb thrice and the least score I ever had was 235.

  4. 245 in 1991. Even with that, I was deprived of my admission to study medicine. My name mysteriously vanished from the notice board and an admission letter for Biochemistry (which I had never even heard of) equally mysteriously appeared. My dad stood on principle and refused to 'egunjerise'. I ended up studying Biochem rather than wait another year to retake JAMB. Naija - killing dreams since 1852! I hope the person who 'replaced' me made good use of the opportunity. And I'm thankful to God that I am able to still follow my dream, though its not easy at 39 and with all the grey hairs on my head!!

    1. Hi I am just wondering what made you go back to school for medicine? I scored 211 in my time wanted to rewrite it but pressure was on. Now I wish I hadn't listened to everyone

    2. Wow, I salute you nubian princess for your courage, and for not given up on you dreams.. You just inspired someone!!!
      I ask God to give you more grace to complete this excellently..

    3. Thanks guys and amen to your prayer. I suppose it was just this niggling feeling of discontent. I had a good job and had actually changed career path twice, thinking my kids will pick up where I left off. Bt a good friend got me thinking one day when I was complaining 40 was around the corner and she reminded me whether or not I chased my dreams, I would still clock 40 anyway. Better to be 40 and fulfilled than 40 and full of regrets. And I'm glad I listened because I will be graduating in a few months by God's grace. Its not the end of the journey by any long shot but at least I'll start earning money soon :) You're never to old to achieve whatever you want to. Don't let extenuating factors like age stop you pls! Reach for the stars....

      Nubian Princess< Wow I am encouraged ooo.
      Learning never stops.

  5. 203 the first time... could have gotten me into school with a bit of long legs but dad wouldn't have any of it as always, everything has to be on merit. 269 second time of asking and got into my choice course, one of the top scores in my class as well.. back in 2000 in a top 6 Federal Uni.

    Was surprised first day of arrival to learn that some eficos were already spoiling for competition and trying to identify the top 10 in the published admission list. Was a marked man from first day. SMH.

  7. Hian! I was just thinking about Jamb yesterday when I was in

    I wrote mine in one big public school in Ikorodu on May 5, 2007. Mumsie drove me there and waited for me to finish. The invigilators were passing answers to the questions round the hall from person to person. Azzin, they caught peeps cheating and told them to share so when the peeps were done, they(the invigilators) collected the "chip" and raised it up so if it was ur paper type, u collect and copy. I was so scared, I just faced my paper as the omo mummy that i was.

    For weeks, I was very sure they would cancel the results in my centre because of the cheating. Anywaiz, i checked my result and behold people of God, they I had 204, the cut off mark for the Uni i picked was 160, I got in without any hassle to read my course of choice. Resumed in November same yr. Mumsie followed me for registration, it was so funny. Till tomorrow, i have course mates who still call me "baby economics" cos my mum followed me for registration.

    PS: y'all brainy pple that had 270, 280 and co, na una be the real efiwes. I really admired them that time o. I felt like such an

    1. Loooool.... you're so not an olodo!

    2. Who is older between you both?

    3. *wailing* this is sooooooo not fair!

      Who do you think is older Uyi.... pick your answer carefully oooo! cuz i'm about to pounce on you if you get it wrong!

  8. 1st jamb score 185. 2nd jamb score 222

  9. This comment has been removed by the author.

  10. 296 after my prescience in UNIZIK, 2011

  11. Wrote the stupid jamb once, got 221 and then all of a sudden, federal universities decided to introduce post-ume for d first time ever. I got 111 in that

  12. 265 or 256 , I'm not sure which. But I got admission immediately to study my course of choice( medicine)

  13. First Jamb scored 156. Second jamb 220 not enough for my course (Mass Communication) I reason to sidon for house another year i just went in for English & Literary studies one time.

  14. I actually did JAMB thrice.....2003/2004/2005

    Had 223,215 then 210

    I remember my uncle teasing me that forward ever nii oh,not backward never

  15. I dont know anybody that scored lower than me in Jamb. My first Jamb score is so embarassing. I cant even say it. Second jamb I got 198, third jamb I got 234. All waste! Because I used diploma to enter Uni.


  16. Loooool. Kene and Iyanuoluwa, you guys are the real MVPs .... loooool

    I wrote Jamb twice, thanks to unilorin and their new "no awaiting result policy" in 2008.
    220 1st attempt, 222 the second time. Looooool
    1 year, 2 extra marks. Loool.

    Btw, you people are making me feel like i'm a small geh. Loool. 2001, 2002, 2003... ha! lool

  17. First jamb score 198, second jamb score 265. As in when I saw the second jamb result I was like booyaah!!!

  18. 221, i was soo scared going to write

  19. Wrote JAMB in 1989 and got into university. But I don't remember my score. Cut off point then was closer to 300. Medicine was closer to 400. But now it's 150 and we wonder why entry level staff can't spell. Some people ace their exams but have no street or common sense. They fail to experience life and its temptations. Exams discipline you. Molding your character. The students who pimped or used sex to pass exams, continue doing these to get by.

    Yes Thelma, I'm in my 40s.


    1. Haaaaaaa! 1989 ke?!!!!!!!

      Is people like Mallama that would look me straight in the eye and say... "ki won to lala pe won ma bi e ni mo ti ko jamb!" (I wrote Jamb way before they thought of giving birth to you) lmaoo! And they'll be very correct!

    2. Mallama please can we be friends? I need older friends to guide me. How can I reach you?

  20. I still remember everything about my JAMB - venue, date, score and stuff that happened around that time. I scored 328.

    1. Haaaaaaa!!! Eazee E that's extremely high o! Those were the kind of scores that were celebrated. Did you have your picture at the back of the JAMB brochure the next year? What did you study in the university? Can I ask what you left Uni with?

    2. Full disclosure you be detective Thelma? need to read *favourite's comment...... 223,215,210...ha....nija mentality "dem aware for you that period?.....

    3. Anonymous Rider!4:53 pm, July 24, 2015

      You will be our blog Prefect, SCholar of life...

    4. T, hahahahahahaha.....back in the day, i was a nerd with a swag!! I was nowhere near the highest in '91. the highest that yer was 368 and in my time d pic @ the back of the brochure hadnt started. I ended up doing Electrical/Electronics Engineering graduating with what 1 of my lecturers termed 'a very painful 2.1'.

    5. This comment has been removed by the author.

    6. Lol. Partsy not my fault. Eazee do you remember everything about everytime in your life like this? You even remember the highest score. Wow. Thanks for answering!

    7. I remember things in vivid details n colours. It's both a blessing and a curse and that is what gave rise to my seemingly care-free attitude to life. I never forget names and faces.

    8. I envy that part of you Eazee E, in as much as I acknowledge having such memory can have dual effects.

      I wrote the then 'Poly Jamb' in '96 (there was no 'Unijamb' that year). I can't recall my score precisely but I remember it was something a little close to 200 and good enough to get me admitted. Afterwards, my 'Upper Credit' from the Polytechnic gave me a direct entry into University.


  21. 259 in 1998 and 224 in 1999. I think...

  22. If I took jamb only God knows what would have happened - my father told me not to waste his money. My GCE was P parrallel - he didn't believe when i told him they changed the result. I know I wasnt that dull, moderately dull maybe...but not P parallel dull. I passed SSCE sha.

    1. Which one is moderately dull? (lol).

  23. While still in secondary school, I always wondered y JAMB scores never get to d 400 mark. My chemistry teacher then (God rest his soul) told us that JAMB was not a test of knowledge but a test of speed; meaning that negative scoring was used to compute scores. He gave so many other hints which turned out to help me a lot. There were 2 JAMB exams in '91(Feb and Oct) and I passed both but somewhere along the line, Feb was designated for GCE while the Oct was now reserved for SSCE and to qualify to write this, we had to nullify the previous one.

  24. Direct entry to the rescue. When Jamb refused to release my result, it was diploma straight on, then direct entry. To me, Jamb was the Meanest examination body that ever existed little cousin who wrote the last Jamb agrees so much...cus bobo scored 158, after d system that he was assigned went off during the exam.
    Jamb jamming peeps since 1860AD.

  25. 199 in 2001, 258 in 2002. Remember that second exam vividly: tested on CRS/CRK which I never took for even an hour in passing in school cos I was gunning for an admission to study law. Thank God for Sunday School cos that was d knowledge I wrote that part with.

  26. 233 in 2005. Still enough to get me into University cause post-Jamb was introduced for the first time ever. Remembered one of my first days in University where i met other peeps whose Jamb score was more than the addition of my Jamb and post-Jamb score.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

One More Post...


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
