How could you propose skill acquisition as substitute for education? You think developed countries attained their height by skill acquisition? They are using 'skill full' education.

linearity:


I don't see anything laudable about this.

This brings lots of uncertainties and confusion, and the privilege to choose the University one will attend is taken away except for the three Universities that might pick a student.

So, if I score very high in jamb e.g. 329 and my dream is to attend OAU....if by some luck Some three unknown Universities with cuts like 180, 190, 200 get in front of the line ahead of OAU with cut of 310...I will be stuck with these three unknowns, despite the fact that I clearly met IAU criteria.
OAU CUT OFF IS 200

I was just using hypothetical cases....to illustrate my point..cut off also varies from one course to another even within the same school.

TheHistorian:
JAMB IS CONFUSED.

In a bid to enforce transparency in the admission processes of institutions.They have decided to act as a middleman between aspirants and institutions which I find disgusting and appalling.Allow Candidates transact directly with their institution of choice.Allow them sit for PostUTME without JAMB's interference!

JAMB should take its filthy hands away from interfering into admission modalities.

If Schools will source for Candidates themselves..then why allow aspirants pick an institution of choice while registering??

Ah just tire sev!
I think I like this idea, not like universities are transparent in their admission processing too. probably with this using connection to gain admission will reduce.

Re: JAMB Introduces Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) For 2017/18 Admission by yakamata(m): 3:42pm On Aug 22
This policy will not pass, why? Nigerian universities will have to grade every single candidate using different parameters (some are using post utme while others are using waec and neco to grade) plus the whole process is too cumbersome, the former process takes a long time imagine how long this method will take?
Plus this policy doesn't exactly stop the corruption, take for example, the fact that the cut off point of a university is 70 will NOT stop someone with 71 getting admission before someone with 80.

Jamb has no business meddling with admissions processess of various institutions.Jamb's jurisdiction is just to conduct Exam Shikena!.....wot is Oloyede feeling like?


you are right but remember its not everyone that passed the jamb and post jamb.if jamb wants to create an opportunity for such category then its a welcome development.one thing am 90% sure is that real brilliant students who wrote jamb r denied admission at the expense of those who pay their way into getting admission.
Admission is now seen as a political party while students are seen as voters and jamb as inec while universities are party candidates.After all, its not all voters that would vote for the same party of their choice but jamb would still remain.so if inec that failed to reg voters 4 d party candidates of their choice is now giving them the same opportunity again.it is good.

If they will do it well then am okay with it..
Atleast professors will not collect 750 thousand and give someone who scored 210 medicine and another person will score 275 and you won't even get admission..They will just pity you and give you microbiology..
why give me microbiology when I didn't apply for it..
Wicked professors..

u are just being naive. Jamb has never offered any candidate admission independent of the various schools.Jamb has no right and has never admitted students on its own.Their function is just to regulate.Note their function is to organise exams and (regulate) issue the necessary admission letters to students whose names have been submitted by school of their choices.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) is a Nigerian entrance examination board for tertiary-level institutions.[1] The board conducts entrance examinations for prospective undergraduates into Nigerian universities. The board is also charged with the responsibility to administer similar examinations for applicants to Nigerian public and private monotechnics, polytechnics, and colleges of educations. All of these candidates must have obtained the West Africa School Certificate, now West African Examinations Council, WAEC, or its equivalent, National Examination Council (Nigeria), NECO.[2] [3]

….WHILE WAITING ON ASUU

I remember being a university student a couple of years back and the news comes to you that ASUU is going on strike. At first you don’t feel perplexed because you have no idea how long it will last and many students even see it as an opportunity to take a rest from the academic rigour. Not until months start counting and it starts getting boring by the day especially for those who go back home. They begin to pray that ASUU should call off the strike. But you could be always sure that it will take at least four months before your prayers get answered; well, I said four month because that’s the shortest ASUU strike I experienced as an undergraduate.
So while this strike is on, you don’t have to sit down there and relax or keep praying that the strike be called off. We both know those people don’t care about the youths. And an Adage says when two elephants fight the ground bears the brunt. Their kids are outside the country studying; trying to secure for them a better future, so they don’t care. The best you can do for yourself is to take your life is in your hands. Take the bold step and do something rather than waiting.

Well, I will quickly share few tips with you on what to do while waiting on ASUU.
1. Get Certified.
2. Get an Internship placement
3. Get a vocational Skill.


Let me start with the first, Get Certified; See, certification is the only way out of joblessness and the best time to get certified is now. I’ll tell you why; many certification institutes have discount for students, fresh graduates and NYSC members which means you have to take advantage of it; because once the discount umbrella covers you no more, you would have to pay the normally quite expensive amount professionals pay for certifications. Secondly, why procrastinate? If you have the means why not do it now instead of getting a new phone. The perfect time is always[b] NOW!![/b] You might never get the same opportunity you have now again. There are a lot of certification you might want to decide to get now; I’ll mention a few; Oil and Gas certifications like General and Advance HSE, NEBOSH and OSHA certifications will make you a prospect. These certifications are very important and they have taken a lot of people out of the labour market. They are relevant in almost any industry or sector and if you think that your course of study will rob you the opportunity to work in your desired industry, well, I have good news for you; there are oil and gas short courses that will avail you this opportunity.
Another important certification I will mention is I.T certification; you can get a certification in networking or programming while you wait on ASUU. This will not only give you an edge in the labour market it will also make you a potential entrepreneur. Well, I used the word ‘potential’ because not everybody realise this and not everyone have the desire to become entrepreneurs. Getting I.T skills have the highest possibility of making you an entrepreneur. What more can I say? GET CERTIFIED!! CERTIFICATION IS THE WAY!!

Second point is; Get an Internship placement; this might be a little bit hard in this country especially for those who do not have uncles and aunties in these organisations, but it should stop you from trying. Write a letter to as many of them that you have mapped out and will be willing to work at, send you CV along side, and let them know you would be willing to intern in their organisation without getting paid. Of course, you shouldn’t be after the pay at this point in your life; you should be after the experience and the opportunity that comes with it. Learning comes before earning you know. And as a matter of fact, you are still in your Learning stage. If you have few certifications already, it will boost your CV and increase your chances of getting the internship placement that is why I made the getting certification the chief point.

Well, the third one; Get a vocation skill is also important especially for those with the entrepreneur mind set. As a lady you might want to get some fashion designing, makeup or catering skills, there are several others though. And as a guy you might want to learn how to fix computers and phones or some computer software skills depending on your passion, you might even try the so-called ‘feminine’ skills I mention earlier or hair dressing. The trend is changing as men are becoming very successful in the line of businesses that was once believed to be feminine. Most women prefer the male touch to female. I bet these skills would certainly help you when you least expect.
