    Yesterday we put out a short survey to you to try to understand more about JAMB's recent policy of posting Jambites to schools. It has been difficult to understand who is getting posted and what criteria JAMB is using. There has also been a lot of speculation about whether JAMB is done posting people or if more postings will happen in the coming days.

    We got well over 500 respondents since we put out the survey (less than 24 hrs ago). So we believe the numbers we're seeing are a good estimate of the overall figures.

    So without further delay here are the survey results:

    Summary Statistics
    Percent posted to a school = 15.6%
    Percent NOT posted to a school = 84.4%
    Avg Jamb Score of everyone that participated in the survey = 207.5


    People that were posted:
    Min score 187
    Max score 298
    Avg Score: 224


    People that were NOT posted:
    Min score 167
    Max score 288
    Avg Score: 204


    If you were posted what type of school were you sent to:
    University - 100%
    Polytechnic - 0%
    College of Education - 0%


    (if you were posted) What choice school were you posted to
    100% - 1st choice
    0% - 2nd choice
    0% - 3rd choice


    When were you notified
    61% on July 11 and 12
    39% on other days


    Some of the schools that people have been posted to:
    Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko
    Bayero University kano
    Benue State university
    Delta State University
    Federal University Dustin-Ma Katsina
    Federal University of Technology Minna
    Federal University of Technology, Owerri
    Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka
    University Of Lagos
    University of Uyo
    University of Benin
    University of Osun state
    University of Nigeria, Nsukka
    University of Calabar
    University of Ilorin
    University of Port Harcourt
    Usman Danfodiyo University, Sokoto


    Our Conclusions:
    Our reading of the data is that JAMB likely has notified only a partial list of students of their posting and more will be posted eventually

    We observed that JAMB appears to have posted people mostly to federal universities and only sent people to their 1st choice university.

    On average, the scores of people that have been posted are slightly higher than those that were not but there are many people with excellent scores that were not posted.

    We believe that a lot more people will be posted since:
    - only about 15% of Jambites have been notified thus far
    - few if any people have been sent to their 2nd and 3rd choice school
    - Many people with good scores are yet to be posted

    Hopefully this information has been useful.

    Thanks to everyone that participated in the survey!

    @abdulhamid - it doesn't mean that no one has been posted to ABU. Just that none of the people in our survey indicated so. Also that was an optional question so some people left it blank
