About Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB) Syllabus

JUPEB means Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board. It was introduced by the University of Lagos State (UNILAG) in December 2013. JUPEB is accepted in over 95% of universities in Nigeria.

History of JUPEB

The Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB) is a national examinations body approved by the Federal Government of Nigeria first established in December 2013 but formally introduced in April 2014 by a consortium of ten (10) partnering universities led by the University of Lagos.

The board is responsible for conducting common and standard examinations for candidates, who have been exposed to a minimum of one year of approved courses in the different Universities’ Foundation and/or Diploma Programmes and are seeking Direct Entry admissions into University courses at the 200 Level in Nigerian and partnering foreign universities.

The first JUPEB examination was conducted in August 2014 and successful candidates were admitted into the 200 Level by JAMB based on recommendations from the universities from 2015, JUPEB Examinations are often held in June annually.


If you have been struggling with JAMB for a while now, then we would suggest you try enrolling for the JUPEB program at any university of your choice, and here are our reasons why;

Firstly, the JUPEB program is one reliable way of gaining admission into a university that most people don’t know of yet. This program allows you to gain direct entry admission to the second year for any course of choice provided you score up to the cut-off for the course. 

Another good thing about this program is that it has about eighty-one (81) affiliate universities that train you on using the JUPEB syllabus in subjects relevant to your preferred choice course of study and present you for the national examination which carries 70 marks. 

Thirdly, your JUPEB result does not expire, unlike your JAMB which can only be used for a year.

Finally, when you get admitted into the university, you will have a higher CGPA as your GP is going to be divided by 3 years, not four years like others who used JAMB.

Admission Requirement for JUPEB

The program is open to all who are interested nationwide and any course can be offered be it Science, Art or Social Science. The basic requirements are as follows;

  • O’Level result (minimum of 5 credit passes in at least five (5) subjects at O’Level, including English language and Mathematics at not more than 2 sittings)
  • Four(4) passport photographs
  • Birth certificate
  • Certificate of state of origin (optional)

List of Universities in JUPEB

You can gain admission into the 200-level in any university of your choice with your JUPEB result except A.B.U Zaria. This is because Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria has an A/level program called IJMB PROGRAM and the program is still at 200 level.

The JUPEB Grading System

Students’ academic efforts are interpreted into grades and points at the end of the program. The table below contains information on the calculation of these grades, points, and examples.










60 – 69

V. Good



50 – 59




45 – 49




40 – 44




43 and below



So if A = 5, B = 4, C = 3, D = 2, E = 1, F = 0 (and 1 point is added to a candidate who doesn’t have an F in their result)

For example, a student who gets a C grade in all three subjects entered has a point calculated like this:

CCC=3+3+3+1 = 10pts

Maximum point AAA in your three subject courses = 15+ 1 = 16 points. 

Note: JUPEB results are released a maximum of 60 days after the final examination.
