MUST READ:- These 5 Reasons May Hinder You From Gaining Admission This Year Even If You Have A Good Score In JAMB.
There are several reasons that may hinder a candidate from gaining admission even after having a high score in JAMB.
Of Course you would agree with me that the acknowledged lay down route of gaining admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria is through JAMB and Post UTME (or screening as the school might prefer)
Most candidates meet this criteria excellently and they still wonder, “where did I miss it?, why was I not admitted?, but, I had a high score in JAMB and I even murdered the Post UTME Exam! WHY???”
This article is going to give you the WHY to your answers as we have help you listed 5 Reasons which may hinder you from gaining admission into that dream school of yours this year.
5 Reasons That May Hinder You From Gaining Admission This Year 2018
1. Incorrect JAMB Subject Combination:
Most candidates are always oblivious of the fact that having an incorrect jamb subject combination is like telling the school you don’t know what you are doing. How can someone who wants to study medicine choose English, maths, geography and physics? Even if you have 390, bros, you won’t see admission o.. Not a curse tho.
My point is, if you’re applying for JAMB, at least, try to take your time in making research for the perfect subject combination because it is a critical criteria in gaining admission (for chosen course) into any university.
2. Wrong O’Level Result Combination:-
A lot of people don’t even know the importance of a brochure. Having a correct O’Level result combination is very crucial in gaining admission. Even if you have A’s all through and you don’t have the correct combination, my brother c’est faux o..
Get your O’level combination right and satisfy the conscience of your admission possibility.
3. Choosing The Wrong School (1st choice and 2nd choice palava):-
Choosing a school who doesn’t admit
second choice candidates as a school of second choice means you’re digging your own admission grave. Tho, most people don’t know which school accept or don’t accept 2nd choice. However, I have assisted you in gathering the FULL LIST OF FEDERAL & STATE UNIVERSITIES THAT ACCEPT SECOND CHOICE CANDIDATES, if you want to take a look at it, CLICK HERE
4. Unqualified For Admission
Even after meeting up with the minimum JAMB Cut Off Mark, you would nod in agreement with me that some schools might decide to have their different cut off mark.. Even for some selected courses.
Make sure you’re in cognizance with how the school operate their admission criteria and don’t waste your time waiting for a school that is not ready to admit an unqualified candidate.
5. Applying For University outside your Catchment area:-
It is always advisable to apply for admission into universities that have your state as a catchment area. Not all Federal Universities have catchment areas, UI, Funaab, uniport, fupre, uniabuja, fuam, and mouau don’t have catchment areas. Other Federal universities have catchment areas.
