For those who want to know the meaning of JUPEB, JUPEB simply means Joint University Preliminary Examination Board.
JUPEB is a National Examination body saddled with the responsibility of conducting examinations for students, who have undergone approved subject combinations and are seeking Direct Entry admissions into Nigerian universities.
JUPEB is an A’Level program you run to qualify for admission into a university 200level without JAMB. The process of running a JUPEB program is as simple as, apply for JUPEB, get admitted, run the program for one session, seat for exam and pass. Them, apply for direct entry into any university of your choice the following year.
Each JUPEB candidate must register, sit for Examinations and satisfy the Board in three subjects and a General Studies course relevant to the proposed course in any of the universities.
Students are required to choose three subjects in addition to English. Each subject is to be broken into four courses to be taken, two per semester, by the candidate.
The results in all the courses are to be merged at the end of the second semester to obtain the candidate’s grade in that particular subject.

JUPEB Result & How To Calculate Yours
The results issued by the JUPEB are graded like Cambridge A/Level results. You may want to know how the board will compute your result after running an JUPEB program from any center. It is not as difficult as you may thing.
During the program, your institution will conduct a mock exam which is 30% of the total score in each subject each subject and forward it to JUPEB. Then, at the end of the program the Board’s exams will take place, which will cover the remaining 70% of the total score.
JUPEB Grdaing point is as:
- 70-100% (A) is 5points
- 60-69% (B) is 4points
- 50-59% (C) is 3points
- 45-49% (D) is 2points
- 40-44% (E) is 1point
- 39% below (F) is 0 point
Therefore, if you registered three subjects with grades such as Biology 73% which is (A), 65% in Physics which is (B) and 57% in Chemistry which is (C).
The calculation of your result would look similar to this:
- Biology: A = 5points
- Physics: B = 4points
- Chemistry: C = 3points
With the above calculation, the total points you scored is 12points plus IJMB bonus point which is 1points.
Therefore, the total point you scored is 13points.
For How Long Would JUPEB Result Expire?
JUPEB result does not expire. You can use it to apply for direct entry as long as you wanted. The result is always been released by the board few months after the last paper.
