5 mistakes that can stop you from gaining university
admission in Nigeria
To gain admission into any university in Nigeria, you
must avoid these five mistakes.
Gaining admission into a Nigerian university can be
a struggle, especially into the first choice tertiary
Prospective candidates who have passed their
Senior School Certificate Examinations (SSCE) and the Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examination
(UTME) might wonder why they are not admitted despite their good grades and UTME scores.
There are many reasons why students miss admission every year. Many people might think university managements are not fair and transparent in their admission process, but the truth is, every
institution has its admission requirements and criteria.
Here are some of the mistakes that could lead to
1. O Level result combination:
Candidates seeking admission into a tertiary institution will either use his/her WAEC, NECO result or combination of both. However, there have been questions on whether some universities accept a combination of NECO and WAEC results.
Here is it, some schools like the University of Lagos only accepts one O level result from its admission candidates. So, if you are choosing a school like this for admission, you are expected to use one O level result.
2. Wrong O level subjects combination:
Wrong O level subject combination has also been identified as one of the reasons many students are denied admission. Make sure you visit the school ortheir site to confirm the requirements for your chosen course.
If you want to study say, Biochemistry in the university, you are expected to have at least five
credits in your O level result. And this credits must include English Language, Mathematics, Chemistry,
Biology. In some schools, the fifth course has to be Physics while in others, any other science subject is allowed as the fifth subject.
You have to know the O level subject combination your choice university want.
The official age for admission in Nigerian universities is 16. Before a candidate can be admitted, he/she must have reached the AGE of sixteen (16) by the 31st day of October in the year of admission.
4. False state of origin claim:
Falsifying your state of origin is always an issue in state universities where indigenes get bursary and
subsidised tuition, also consider admission first, as well as the Catchment area…Tertiary institutions like Lagos State University (LASU). Unilag, Uniben
and so …take this seriously….better chose where you will be admitted successfully forget about the school name pls…there is no time, you have other things to achieve.
5. Cut-off mark:
This became a little controversial as the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board recently lowered the cut-off mark for universities to 160/140, while
polytechnics and colleges of education were pegged at 140/120 and 100 respectively.
However, first generations like the University of Ibadan and University of Lagos UNILAG, Uniben, UNN
and so…only consider only candidates who scored 200 in their UTME exams. You just have to score at least 250+ just for you to have a better chance to gain admission.
So, if you want to be admitted in any of the competitive schools, your UTME must not be less
than 240 at least.
