The rules:
1. Screening of candidates shall be for those offered Provisional AdmissionsONLY.
2. No written examination to be conducted.
3. Verification of Course Requirements (O levels or A levels).
4. Verification of valid JAMB results by checking
i.Online Result Slip
iii.Provisional Admission Letter
iv.Photo Album
v.Check list
vii. Before a candidate can seat be considered for screening, he/she must have been given provisional admission by Jamb.
viii. Institutions are free to source from other Course(s) to compensate for SHORTFALL in any of the criteria.
The point system:
This is the most critical part of the process. Jamb’s provisional admission no longer makes much sense this year, your points tally will decide your faith. The points are evenly spread out between your O’level and Jamb results to provide a level playing field for all.
In the first case, any candidate who submits only one result which contains his/her relevant subjects already has 10 points, the exam could be NECO, WAEC, GCE etc, but any candidate who has 2 sittings only gets 3 points. So this means that aspirants with only one result are at an advantage but only just.
The next point grades fall into the O’level grades. Each grades has it’s equivalent point, A=6 marks, B=4 marks, C=3 marks, so the better your grades the better your chances.
The next point is the UTME scores. Each score range has its equivalent point which can be summarized thus, 180-200=20-23 marks, 200-250=24-33 points, 251-300=34-43, 300-400=44-60 points. Each categories contains 5 Jamb results per point added, for example a candidate with 180-185 gets 20points, a candidate with 186-190 gets 21 points etc.
Points system for DE will be released soon.
– It then comes down to the fact that fees will still be charged for screening, it depends on the school as well.
– Catchment and ELDS will still be used!

However some people thinks this is way more difficult than Post UME, what do you think drop your views below
