The latest JAMB Syllabus for Mathematics 2023 is the focus of this article. First, what exactly is a syllabus?

A syllabus is a written summary of all the material that will be covered in a class or during an exam. To prepare for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, students must read the Jamb Syllabus, which is a collection of specified topics.

You have nothing to lose if you are preparing for the Joint Admission Matriculation Board’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination. With the exception of expos, will offer all the guides required to enable the student to pass with flying colours.


This page is for you if you’re taking the upcoming UTME (Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination) and require the Jamb Mathematics outlines topic to read in order to prepare for the Jamb Examination;

How to prepare for the 2023/2024 Jamb Exam;

  • selecting a course
  • conduct research on the subject.
  • Look up the course’s O-level requirements.

Then, check the course’s Jamb Subject Combination. You are good to go if Mathematics is a part of the course combination you want to take.

JAMB Syllabus for Mathematics 2023


This 2023/2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) Mathematics syllabus’s main goal is to get students ready for the Board test. It is intended to gauge whether or not the course’s goals—which include

  • developing computational and manipulative skills,
  • formal, exact, and logical reasoning abilities, and
  • deductive abilities for interpreting graphs, diagrams, and data—have been met.
  • Use mathematics to answer problems that arise in daily life.
