Post-UTME exam, Why 1.2 Million Candidates May Not Gain Admission In 2014.

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


It is no longer news that about 1,606,753
candidates sat for the JAMB 2014 UTME.
According to available statistics about 1.2 million
candidates may not be able to secure admission into any
not the nation’s higher institutions this year.
You wonder why this is so?
The number of candidates seeking admission outweighs
the carrying capacity of the nation’s higher institutions
put together. The average Nigerian university has a
carrying capacity of 4,500
The country presently does not have enough higher
institutions to accommodate the total number of
candidates seeking admission each year even after such
candidates have successfully scaled through the post-
UTME screening of these schools.
Again for a candidate to get admission into any of the
higher institutions, the candidate has to score 180 and
above to be admitted by a university; 150 at least to be
admitted by a polytechnic or a college of education.
Going by this, about 351,232 applicants are already
disqualified from sitting for screening exams owing to
failure to meet the minimum 150 score, invalid results
and absenteeism.
With this development it would be advisable for
candidates to seek and explore other alternatives than
staying at home and wasting precious time.
