What is the meaning of Jambite?Asked 2 years, 4 months ago Viewed 3567 times
What does the word Jambite mean in Nigeria? I hear this word a lot especially in university campuses.
Jambite is a slang word that usually refers to a 1st year student in a Nigerian university. It comes from the acronym JAMB (Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board), a regulatory body that conducts examination into higher institutions in Nigeria.
A jambite is similar to the term freshman used in American colleges.
