We can say that the 2018 JAMB UTME has officially been concluded. While some candidates are counting their gains, others are counting their losses.
Which ever category you fall in, we just want you to know that a high JAMB score is not an automatic ticket to higher institution neither does a low JAMB score automatically disqualify you for admission.
We have seen candidates with high JAMB scores who failed to gain admission into any institution and had to retake JAMB and we have equally seen candidates with low JAMB Scores (Less than 200) who gained admission without having to wait for another JAMB.
So basically, a low or high JAMB score is not the ultimate determinant of who gains and who doesn’t gain admission.
So at this point, what we expect all 2018 JAMB candidates to do is to ask the following critical questions?
>> What is my school’s cut-off mark ?
>> What is the cut-off mark for my intended course of study?
>> Do I need a change of course/institution?
>> What’s the school’s Post-UTME Screening like?
>> How Can I prepare adequately for my school’s Post-UTME Screening?
The answer to these critical questions will help you know what next step to take towards successfully securing admission this year.
And let’s quickly tell you this, take off the retarding mindset that you can not go to a polytechnic. Are they for animals?
If going by your score, you stand a better chance of gaining admission in a polytechnic, for goodness sake, change your institution to a polytechnic if you didn’t pick one during your JAMB registration. Unless of course you don’t mind patronising JAMB next year. And if that is the case, good luck to you!
