There is no official pass mark, but scores above 50 are considered good. However,you should try to score as high as you can because the higher you score, the better your chances of admission for your chosen course and institution.

How long does it take to complete the JAMB Agricultural Science exam?

The entire exam takes 2 hours.  While there is no estimated time for each subject, We would advise you to spend about 30-45 seconds on each question so you can have enough time to go over your work again. Do not spend too much time on questions you do not know.

What subjects does the JAMB Agricultural Science exam cover?

The UTME Agricultural Science exam covers Agricultural Technology, Agriculture Economics and Extension and Agronomy. A full list of topics to study is listed above

How is the JAMB Agricultural Science score calculated?

Aside from The Use of English, each question in the remaining 3 subjects is graded 2.5 marks. Hence, the three subjects carry 300 marks.

For example: If you get 28 questions right in your Agricultural Science exam, the calculation will be 28 x 2.5 = 70% (in percentage).

How many questions are in JAMB Agricultural Science?

You will be tasked to answer 40 questions.

Should I do Agricultural Science in my JAMB exam?

If you are interested in pursuing careers in the agricultural industry you will have to write Agricultural Science in JAMB. Like careers in agriculture, agronomy, food science, and more. Please consult your brochure to see the recommended subject combinations for each course and specific requirements for schools.
