What Next after Failing JAMB or Meeting up With the Minimum Requirement, Still No Admission?
After studying so hard for JAMB Examination, over many months and finally you write the JAMB UTME or perhaps you have been taking the exam repeatedly. However, after seeing your score it is disheartening as it is not up to the minimum requirement for you gaining admission into your school of choice. It could also be that you have the minimum requirement for your school of choice but at the end of the whole process, no
consideration for admission. It is not your fault neither is it anyone’s.
The whole JAMB UTME and Admission of a thing is highly competitive which implies you are competing with other candidates for a limited space. Statistics shows that an average of 1.2 million candidates registered for JAMB every year. Some institutions like University of Ilorin, University of Benin etc. take larger percentage of these stats. Meanwhile, each of these institutions has limits to which they can admit students. You can imagine University of Ilorin with JAMB registered candidates of nothing less than 100,000 but can only admit less than 15,000 i.e. 15% of the whole number of students who made the school their first choice during registration. These statistics alone show how competitive the admission will be. You have to prepare well and score high in the JAMB UTME or at least above minimum requirement (and perhaps some will say you must have connection in that your school of choice). Notwithstanding, after scoring that high in JAMB UTME and passing the Post UTMTE screening you might not be considered for admission and someone with score lower than yours might be considered based on some other factors. The most frustrating part is that you have to pay for registration again as the result is only valid for that year. At some point, one might just want to give up on writing another JAMB UTME. For someone who is focused and want this admission will think of other alternative(s) to gaining admission into that school of choice. There are many alternatives such as IJMB, JUPEB, NABTEB A’LEVEL, CAMBRIDGE A’LEVLEL etc. Nevertheless, out of all these, IJMB is the best alternative to gaining admission via direct entry into any university of your choice with the exception of only few universities such as Obafemi Awolowo University, University Of Ilorin, Ilorin State University . IJMB is a better alternative to JAMB UTME and has edge over JAMB because the result does not expire unlike JAMB, which only last a period of 1 year. Meaning you can use your IJMBE result to apply for admission, as many times you want. You aswell apply for as my universities you want so far you can afford as many direct entry forms. Another interesting fact about IJMB is admission is into 200 Level via direct entry unlike JAMB UTME, which is into 100 Level. This implies that if you apply via JAMB UTME but you were not admitted you could still apply for IJMB that same year and meet up with your colleagues in 200 Level the following year.
