After sitting for Post UTME, something tells you, “let me just relax, enjoy myself now that Jamb, as well as, Post UTME stress is over”. That’s certainly the first thing you should do.
After writing Post UTME, close your books, watch films, see movies, eat good food, sleep better and feel free to do other things you love while waiting for the Post UTME results to be out.
Predict your fate after the results are released. If your performance in the Post UTME is excellent then there is a high probability that you will be offered 2024 Admission.
While waiting for Jamb official admission status, you can be preparing some documents needed for your school’s physical clearance. Examples are State/Local government of origin certificate, waec printout or certificate, birth certificate, original Jamb result slip, etc. These documents are important and not a waste whether or not you eventually gain admission.

If your score is too low or below the general cut off mark for your school, you won’t be offered admission. For example, you cannot gain admission to study any course in Uniben with a Post UTME score less than 50 (Uniben general cut off mark is 50).
