5 Reasons Why You Might Be Denied Admission This Year.

on

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.
