Of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board – and their endless websites.

If you have a brother, sister, or relative sitting for the above JAMB, or perhaps you relate to teenagers preparing for the JAMB exam, you would have information of, and can relate to the above title.

JAMB means Joint Admission and Matriculation Board and it the official examining board for the Universities Matriculation Exam held yearly for prospective undergraduate students in Nigeria. JAMB is a national body established by the Federal government and has been the sole body established with the responsibility for conducting the UME to select students for admission. When a student’s scores are good in the exam and he meets the cut off mark for his university choice, JAMB issues him an official University admission letter through his university of choice.

Part-1

Let me give you a run-down, starting with jamb.org.ng:

 

jamb1

 

The above is the main website of JAMB-exam registration, with URL as: http://www.jamb.org.ng/, and IP address as: 196.200.123.15, registered by the AFRINIC.

In the above picture, #1 links to http://www.jambonline.org/, with IP address: 196.200.123.58. As of this writing, the page displays a blank-white.

#2 links to http://www.jambites.org/, with IP address: 83.143.9.234. “Powered by AfriBank”, this is an official information taken from the site itself:

JAMBiTeS information service is all you need to check your examination centre, notification of results and provisional admission status for UME, MPCE and DE candidates.

Then check out this screenshot:

jamb2

Please note the red-circled URL: http://www.jambng.com/ with screen-shot below:

jamb3

http://www.jambng.com/ with IP address: 66.232.113.146 gives information about the Organization, its board members / management team etc. It also includes statitstical data for application, exam-performance and admission for both the UME(University Matriculation Examination) and PCE(Polytechnic / College Examination), etc.

In summary, http://www.jambng.com/ is about JAMB, as an organization, and http://www.jamb.org.ng/ is for registration of candidates for the JAMB examination. While you are registered for the JAMB-examination, while you prepare/after sitting for the examination and awaiting results, you are a JamBite, so please move on to: http://www.jambites.org/.

 

 

Part-2

I thought it was all over, then I discovered http://www.jambonline.org/. Before I got confused, I clicked on the FAQ link.

jamb4

The above circled info is quite similar with what we have at jambites.org, isn’t it. So can we conclude that Jambites.org and ambonline.org are the same sites….for checking JAMB results?

But then, we have http://www.myjambexams.com/ with IP address: 78.109.162.117. The ‘NECO Examination Platform’ with URL http://www.mynecoexams.com/ is also hosted by the above server.

While these: http://www.mynecoexam.com/ and http://www.myjambexam.com/, both with IP address: 208.73.210.26 look parked, in addition to http://www.jambite.org/, another JAMB website I discovered is: http://www.myjambresult.com/ with IP: 72.3.222.98 for services that include result checking / printing, etc. Honestly, are you not JAMB bored already?

While the JAMB board and technical crew might be having a field day registering JAMB-related domain names everywhere by different registrars and hosting their applications around the world, I hope the multitude of information does not contribute to the high-failure rate of Jambites in Nigeria.

Please, can someone tell the JAMB board of directors, the JAMB team of Information Technology experts, etc., to please get real, wake up and consolidate all their numerous websites / applications under one roof / domain / team of contractors, so that potential JAMB candidates won’t end up totally confused as to the correct website/URL where they are supposed to get information, register for and check their results, etc. Talk about registering at some JAMB URL only for you to hear that you wrongly registered on the date of the examination.

And with so many websites that lead all over, is JAMB not inviting fraudsters who might begin printing re-charge cards of their own and directing victims to some extra-fraudulent JAMB registration website.

 

Now, the funny part:

http://www.waecnovdec.com is the WAEC registration website for the coming Nov/Dec-2009 season. And I’m thinking, how does/will WAEC’s technical crew differentiate WAEC registration web-sites on a yearly basis. Isn’t it better to have a single WAEC examination domain and then subdomains for as many exam sessions / applications and services as possible? for example: mayjune2009.waecnigeria.com, scratchcard.waecnigeria.org, results.waecnigeria.org, registration.waecnigeria.org, whathaveyou.waecnigeria.org.

Now, between http://www.waecnigeria.org/, http://www.waecdirect.org/, http://www.waeconline.org.ng/, are applicants not going to end up confused.

Even the Ghanians are much more thoughtful: http://www.ghanawaec.org/, http://ghana.waecdirect.org/, http://registration.ghanawaec.org/wassce/

 

And please are Africans in Yankee also taking WAEC? http://www.waec.us/, or maybe I’m totally mistaken.

  1. GOOD DAY SIR,
    PLEASE HELP ME I CAN’T FIND MY POLY JAMB RESULT, WHEN I CHEAK MY RESULT IT SAYS THAT MY REG NUMBER CAN NOT BE FOUND, PLEASE HELP ME, THIS IS MY LAST CHANCE OF THIS EXAM, SIR HELP ME
    MY REG NUMBER IS:
    93155676GA

  2. PLEASE I NEED REPLY FROM AMAKA, PLEASE HELP ME OR THEY SEND IT THROGH MY EMIL OR THEY RELEASE MY RESULT FOR ME.

  3. pls what is the polyjamb cut off mark for this year my score is 165

  4. It really surprises me how daft people can get that they can’t simply distinguish between a blog post and a support helpline or a JAMB website.

    @AMAKA: It wouldn’t amaze me if you didn’t pass your exam. Did you think this was the official website or what? The OP was only blogging his experience and not here to provide you exam query services.

    Hmm, god help Nigerians 😦

  5. I have discovered that http://www.MyJambExams.com was a scam. All their cards didn’t go at all.

    Every Jambites should desist from this site or buy their cards.

  6. Please send my jamb records to my school(uniben) to enable me put in for my pume. Reg no. 92239663IJ. Leide Brinemughan. Deadline is friday 14th this month.

  7. no be small thing, i’m not too suprised though cos we generally lack a organised structure build up in Naija. plus the people awarding contratcts for JAMB IT needs are seriously IT deficient or doing so each to their own candidaes to get their kickbacks.

  8. i want to know more about your services

  9. I still don’t know when Nigerians will feel they are in the Information Age… may be when the other people of the world have created a vacancy by their migration to another Age! Our own trend of development is 1 step forward 3 steps backward.

    On Ajala submission: Is there any need to be surprised on Amaka’s request? What about the government and their agencies. Jamb is just showcasing its own brand of 7-site Agenda.. they will soon exceed the target, waec and neco are not left in the race! What will you call the huge difference between salaries of the highest paid university teacher (prof) and the least elected politician (LG Councilor)? Absurd! Nigeria is a place where even the common sense is rather scarce.

    If you can’t get it well, what about Richie? After comment on Amaka, he went ahead to really show there are deranged people in this country. Why are they looking for scores when they didn’t really read through the questions before shading answer booklets. Is there any proof that they really read through the papers?

    In summary, the best way a typical Nigerian will not be informed is to put it on paper. Nigerians prefer rumours to reading through any content (That’s our definition of Information Age). They just stumbled into the blog and turn it to helpline service. More than stupidity!

  10. please can anybody tell ME why http://WWW.MYJAMBEXAM.COM can’t check result slip? Is not even opening at all not talk of puting the PIN NO. and REG NO. I want to print my result slip, how do I solve this problem I need it urgent. you can E-mail me at makeastep@gmail.com

The easiest avenue empty can be defined as a unambiguous neighbourhood space, adapted to the utilitarian residence. We can discern various kinds of housing. For the classification of dwellings infatuated into consideration many aspects. The most substantial include the authorized and serviceable aspects. The most stock are casing cooperatives, municipal, flock, hallmark, common security, they disagree from each other, the legal basis. Each of these apartments are designed quest of diverse user groups. More affluent families and independent buying lodging on the property, scant families often remain in communal shelter and on-site. When choosing case have an urgent potency sustenance costs that are associated with use. Costs depend on the type, area and fingers on of the apartment. Each bedsit regardless of the rightful quality has to accomplish its basic functions, tailored to the needs of users.

  23. Учитель английского язка по егэ дубровка – это изрядно непростая профессия. Здесь нужны не всего уникальные методики обучения в английском языке, но и опытность быстро преподнести спешный материал.
    Также должен хорошо смекать собеседника, хорошо писать для английском и конечно же, основное применение – это разговорный язык.
    Всему этому и обязан научить хороший Учитель по английскому языку для института белорусская, причём как позволительно за более небольшой срок.
    Встарь чем говорить к репетитору, некоторый человек пытаются сами выучить язык.
    И это невыносимо правильно, так чистый английский язык надо изучать поэтапно.
    И адски неплохо, если ученик перед сам познакомился с английским.
    Немаловажна также и заинтересованность обучаемого, наподобие и мотивация к обучению английского языка.

  30. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on
    websites I stumbleupon on a daily basis. It will always be interesting
    to read articles from other writers and practice a little something from their sites.

  31. Jackie adds: “To top it all, the builder had put pictures of our house – inside and out – in the local paper to advertise his work, without our permission!” Unfortunately, the case continues. The message is clear – keep the cowboys out of the kitchen and choose a vetted http://technics.site90.net builder who is a member of an established organisation. But cover yourself for complications, too. Even with the most experienced and skilled contractor, things can go wrong, and an established insurance-backed guarantee will ensure that a job is completed well, without extra expense.
