You may be wondering, will I be given a related course if I don’t meet the cut-off mark for my chosen course? Unfortunately, there are no more related courses. This was announced in 2017 for school and Jamb admission.
Before now, If you applied for Medicine, Law, Engineering, Accounting, or Pharmacy and you passed Jamb/post-UTME but couldn’t score up to the cut-off mark for your first choice course, Your choice school would give you another course related to the one you applied to study. Things have changed…
The Idea of a related course has been canceled in the policy meeting held by Jamb for the 2017 admission process. Based on their conclusion, It is either you are admitted to study your desired course or you are not admitted at all.
Is this good news? Certainly NO.
Personally, I feel this policy will reduce the chance of admission for so many candidates in this year’s school and Jamb admission list.
You should also put in mind that you can no longer have double admission. You now have the option to choose only one course. Immediately after you accept one admission, your door of admission will be closed for that year. See details about that here.
What’s the way forward? Your best bet is to prepare very well for post-utme so that you don’t have any issues. You can also read how to prepare for 2017 post UTME here.
