How JAMB Marks Other Three Subjects

Each of the questions in the remaining 3 subjects is graded 2.5 marks. So the three subjects carry 300 marks.

Each of the three other subjects will be 100 if marked 2.5.

For example: If you score 28 over 40 in each of Biology the calculation will be 28 x 2.5 = 70% (in percentage).

If you have 30 in Physics and Mathematics it’ll be 30 × 2.5 = 75

So let’s add it all: 50 + 70 + 75 + 75 = That’s 270 over 400.
