5 Reasons Why You Might Be Denied Admission This Year by holuwajobar(m): 11:10pm On Aug 18, 2017
Being offered admission into a university is the prayer of every
Nigerian students. This is because the number of students far
outweighs the number of universities we have in Nigeria.
Universities are not even helping the matter at all because most of
them admit students based on "long-leg" which i know you
understand what i mean.
This post is focusing on reasons you might not be offered
admission by the school you choose. This reasons are based on my
research, so i hope you trust them.

1. UNABLE TO MEET CUT-OFF MARK FOR YOUR COURSE


This is the most common reason why most of the students are
being rejected yearly. For the new-bie, let me explain what i
mean by cut-off mark.
Cut-off mark is the bench mark or let me say boundary at
which you as a student must reach before been offered admission
into a certain university.
There are factors that determines cut-off mark and example of
those are; the number of candidates that choose the course, the
high or low pass rate of JAMB/screening examination and so on.
Cut-off marks are prone to increase or decrease by those
factor i gave. I will explain more on the factors i gave and
how cut-off mark is being derived my next post.

2. WRONG SUBJECT COMBINATION IN JAMB EXAM


This is one avoidable mistake students commit every year. I will
always advise a student to make some little research about the
course they want to apply for in JAMB exam, and one of those
research is finding out about the subject combination for the
course. You can simply do this by checking the brochure provided
by JAMB. It won't cost you anything to do this little research
because it is capable of destroying your admission this year.
Take note!!!!

3. AGE REQUIREMENT


Though some students below the age requirement of a particular
school devise ways to get admitted but i won't advise any
student to take the risk of passing JAMB exam and being denied
admission simply because of your age (you know how painful it can
be). Most schools requires the student to be 16 years old on or
before October 1st. I have seen a student that was denied
admission because of he was below the age requirement despite
meeting other requirements that would have qualified him for the
admission slot. So i will advise any student that he or she should
make sure that he/she will be 16 years old on or before October
1st.

4. FAILED A CORE SUBJECT IN WAEC/NECO/GCE EXAM


I find it hard to believe that some students apply for admission
despite failing a core subject in WAEC/NECO/GCE exam. Maybe
they want to try their luck but to be sincere with you, no
university will offer such student an admission slot except the
student uses "long-leg" which i know you understand what i am
saying.

5. USING TWO SITTING RESULT


This is also a criteria that cab disqualify a student during
admission process. A lot of candidates you are competing with,
uses one sitting result and you know the federal universities favour
one sitting result more. Why? The answer is simple; simply
because they believe candidates with one sitting result are more
educationally sound. You got my point? Yeah!!! I will explain
more on the disadvantages of using two sitting result in my next
post.

Re: 5 Reasons Why You Might Be Denied Admission This Year by Nobody: 7:46am On Aug 19, 2017
Hmm
The prospective candidates need better information than the one posted here.

If you must gain admission to higher institutions these year, you need to understand the following:

1. The new cut-off Mark is an aggregate of your weighted grades in O'Level and JAMB score.
This means your grades in O Level results matter as much as your JAMB score since there's no more written post-JAMB. Therefore a student with distinctions in O Level result and high JAMB score stands a better chance than the one with low grades. In UNILAG, for instance, the mode of estimating the cut-off last session was:
O Level result was 40%
JAMB score was 60%

So, candidates with C6, C5 in O' Level stand a lesser chance of getting admission even if they score 300/400 in JAMB.

2. Top rated Universities do not accept two-sittings in O Level results.

3. Know the quota system of a University before chossing such institution, except you want to enter by merit. Some universities have preferences for candidates from certain states.

4. Some courses are highly competitive, so you must be sincere with your academic ability before making your choice, e.g Medicine & Surgery, Law, Economics, Architecture, etc.

5. Some universities place higher priority on O Level results than JAMB scores.
JAMB score = 40%
OLevel grades= 60%
For instance,
A1. :: 12 points
B2. :;; 10
B3.::: 8
C4. ::::6
C5. ::::4
C6. :::2
Imagine the candidates with 5 distinctions (5A1) has 60/60; while that with five C6 has 10/60. Even if the latter candidate score 350/400 in JAMB, he might not secure admission.

If jamb refuse to jam you, please jam jamb. Simple.

Don't waste time applying for that exam year after year. Start up something cause life is short and you aren't getting any younger. What happens if you finally get the admission? What happens after graduation? You join the enormous queue at the labour market? Wisen up Abeg.

That age requirement that you must be 16 years old to enter university just pissed me off. I got a young lad that will not enter this year and next year because of that and his a genius. Its better we get a canadian visa for him to study than for him wasting his time in this country. And it will be this same country that inorder to get a job you must not be less than 26 years but must have 2-3 years work experience.

Ok but then, what I meant was nobody should go to school with the mindset of using the certificate to work. There may be job, there may not be. Can't b soo sure.

Just try to Learn a trade/skill so you can be self employed b4/after school.

I know a guy who has been writing jamb for d past 5years applying for one particular school but the school keeps denying him admission and I ask myself, ain't that waste of time? But it's his choice sha
