Top 5 Things to Note Before Applying for JAMB
In the admission process, your name is highly important because it represents your identity on official documents.
So it must be accurate and uniform across all documents. Wrong spellings and incorrect format can be highly disastrous to your chances of gaining admission.
Your name must correlate with other documents like your O’level and birth certificate. There is now a platform where you can affect a name change on the JAMB Portal called ‘change of data,’ but you must take precautions when inputting your name during JAMB registration.
Your Course of Study
Your course of study is another necessity when vying for admission. Not knowing what to pick can be very folly. Before picking a course, go through a lot of arduous and analytical research, and know if it is in tandem with your passion and your interests.
Desist from making anyone pick whatever course to study. Understand your intended course of study and the admission requirement. Never pick a course because your friends are doing it or because it is lucrative. Ensure you are motivated enough to study whatever course you are opting for.
What to consider when choosing your course of study
- The motivation and drive for your course.
- Lucrativeness and relevance.
- The versatility of the course.
- The course should be in demand.
Your Subject Combo
There is nothing that will render your admission hunt futile as picking the wrong subject combination. Use the official subject combination here to avoid any form of problem with your subject combo.
If you pick the wrong subject combo, the situation cannot be remedied, reducing your chances of getting admitted.
Use One Sitting Result
One sitting result is highly advantageous. It increases your chances of gaining admission; institutions do not accord two sitting results many regards for some courses.
Ensure you have the minimum O’level qualification for whatever course you are vying for.
Choose Your School
Some universities in Nigeria are known as ‘first-generation universities.’ These schools are known for their popularity, high standard, reputation and facilities. Some include the University of Ibadan, University of Lagos, University of Benin, University of Nigeria-Nsukka, Obafemi Awolowo University and the Ahmadu Bello University. But you shouldn’t just choose a university based on the name alone. Some universities are extremely competitive.
Guide to Choosing Your Institution of Study
- The staff quality and strength of the university
- The reputation and prestige of the university
- The ratio of university graduates.
- The international and local ranking.
- Facilities and infrastructure.
