What JAMB Candidates Should Do To Increase Chances Of Securing Admission
If you are preparing for the upcoming JAMB UTME, you are advised to carefully read this post and follow the recommendations to increase your chances of gaining admission.
Below are a few factors that will increase your chances of gaining admission.
1. Upload Complete/Right O’level results
JAMB has made it clear last year that henceforth, no candidates will be admitted with incomplete O’level results. A candidate that does not have the complete O’level results for his or her chosen course of study is not qualified for admission. This does not mean that candidates that are are still waiting for the release of their O’level result cannot apply for JAMB using awaiting results. However, such candidates are to ensure they upload their complete O’level results before admission commences. As a matter of fact, all candidates should confirm their O’level results are available on JAMB CAPS. Without this, no admission for you.
2. Have a Correct JAMB UTME-Subject Combination
Just the same way an incomplete/wrong O’level results can disqualify you for admission, the same way a wrong UTME subject combination can equally disqualify. UTME Subject combination is the combination of subjects related to your intended course of study that you are expected to take during the JAMB examination. Candidates are expected to go through the JAMB Brochure to know the exact UTME subject combination for their chosen course of study or check our list of courses and their UTME subject combinations to avoid making this mistake. Though last year, JAMB allowed candidates with such a mistake to make the correction later we are not sure if that opportunity will be given this year. So take this seriously.
3. Apply to a School That Your State of Origin Is Within Its Catchment Area:
Each Federal University has its own catchment areas. These catchment areas are states connected to that particular federal university. If your state of origin is recognized as part of the catchment area of the federal university you applied to study, you will stand a better chance of securing admission into that university than someone else whose state of origin is not recognized as part of the university’s catchment area. 35% of the available spaces are reserved for candidates whose state of origin falls within the catchment area of the federal university of their choice. So it is advisable to apply for admission to an institution that has your state of origin as part of its catchment area. For a list of federal universities and their catchment areas, CLICK HERE.
4. A High JAMB Score
Though a high JAMB score does not automatically mean that you will gain admission, but a high JAMB score will help boost your chances of securing admission especially if your intended course of study is a competitive course like Medicine, Law etc This is why you should study well for the upcoming examination.
5. A Good Post-UTME Score
Similar to the last point I made, a high Post JAMB score equally gives a candidate a high chance of gaining admission. So don’t just aspire for a high score in the JAMB exam, also aspire for a high Post-UTME score as well. That way, you have a better chance of securing admission.
All these I have mentioned above will surely give you a high chance of gaining admission and with God on your side, your admission is sure.
