Do you know that you can score high in Jamb and still fail to gain admission? Continue reading for possible reasons and what you should do right now.
I hear candidates say, “I scored above the Jamb cut-off mark for my school, therefore, my admission is sure“. This is actually a complete fallacy.
The fact that you scored above the Jamb general cut-off mark for your school doesn’t mean that you must be offered admission.
It is one thing to score above the general cut-off mark while it is another ball game to actually get a score that will launch you into your course of choice. This particular score is what matters and makes your admission sure.
Jamb releases an official cut-off mark each year. This cut-off mark only qualifies you to be screened/sit for post-utme. After that, you can either be admitted to study your desired course or a related one. In some cases, you will not be admitted at all.
Example, if the Jamb cut off mark for Unilag is 200, it doesn’t mean that you will be admitted to study Medicine with a score of 230.
The scores for each courses and faculties vary and always above the cut off marks. This score varies based on how competitive a course is. This is why Medicine usually have higher Jamb/Post utme cut off marks than Agricultural science.
Now, post utme is a good news to those who didn’t score extremely high in Jamb. If you are able to score above your departmental cut off mark in post utme, your admission is sure.
Now, you may be wondering, how do I know if my score will make me gain admission into my desired school and institution? I have three articles that will guide you on that and as well teach you what to do when you score low in Jamb. See them below:
