How to Avoid Scoring Zero over 400 (0/400) in 2014 JAMB UTME

Just wondering on the type of advice to offer the 2014 JAMB UTME candidates, especially those that would be participating in the PPT and DBT modes scheduled to hold tomorrow, April 12, then something pop into my mind i.e. the issue of student scoring zero over 400 (0/400).


Zero over 400 (0/400) is possible with JAMB. It happened last year and previous years. Some candidates that experienced such dilemma wondered what might have caused such.

Negligence on the part of candidates to instructions given by invigilators are always the cause of scoring zero over 400 (0/400).

To avoid scoring zero/400 in the 2014 UTME, please take note of these:

  1. Make sure you verify your thumb before entering the examination hall to mark your register

  2. Be mindful of your ‘paper type’

  3. Fill in your name, registration number and other required data correctly on the answer booklet.

Don’t be in rush to answering questions and fail to fulfill the basic things required by JAMB. What will you gain by proffering answers to all the questions but at the end no result or Zero over 400 (0/400). Wasted effort, wasted year, wasted money.

This simple tips might help a soul, don’t hesitate to share this post.
