The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has said it has adopted a policy of score standardisation under which Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination candidates cannot get zero, even if they are absent from the examination.

The board explained that apart from absentee candidates, candidates who did not attempt any question or who did not get any answer correctly were also captured under the policy and would be awarded a “ common scale with uniform metric. ”

According to JAMB, the score standardisation policy means that all candidates, who are registered for a paper , will be awarded a score for that paper, and there would be no zero score.
The board stated this in a paper presented by its Registrar , Prof Is- haq Oloyede , according to the JAMB weekly bulletin obtained by our correspondent on Monday .
