🎓Tips 1. Following the words of the JAMB Registrar after the 2019 exercise, Prof Dibu Ojerinde said: “We have gone digital in JAMB.” What he meant by ‘going digital’ is that the Jamb 2020 UTME examination is going to be a Computer Based Test. To avoid surprises in the exam hall, we encourage participants to learn how to operate a computer system which is as simple as ABC.
In the examination hall, your computer will be “timed” when it reached the allotted time, it will switch off, even if you have not answer any question! So the call to be fast is needed.
🕹Tips 2. All admission seeking candidates in the Jamb 2020, mostly candidates within the South- Eastern environs are advice to make early registrations for the JAMB 2020/21 UTME to avoid missing out on available centers. Last session (Jamb 2019), with the record number of 1.8 Million candidates who participated in the examination, Centres were exhausted within three months of registrations, and late registrants were pushed to the North, north east and north central zones of the country to take their
if you are not in the north, i know you don’t want to risk going to the North to write your jamb exam, due to the the terror insurgence.
A lot of candidates miss the last year jamb exercise due to this problem, so we encourage you to purchase the form as soon as possible.
🕹Tips 3. From statistic, over 1.2 Million Nigerian
Students registered and participated in the JAMB 2019/2020 UTME exercise, and not more than 750,000 of these students were admitted right now, together with over 1.2 million students leaving our various high schools, due to the low amount to candidates who are offered admission last year, we are very sure more than 2 million candidates will participate in the JAMB 2020-2021 UTME exams.
We therefore advice candidates to prepare for the competitions. One way to beat it is to Jack your book (read your books).
🕹Tips 5. The JAMB 2020 candidates are advised to stay away from the Most Selected Institutions as outlined below;
🎓• University Of Lagos (Unilag)
🎓• University Of Benin (Uniben)
🎓• University Of Nigeria (UNN)
🎓• University Of Ilorin (Unilorin)
🎓• Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka. (Unizik)
🎓• Federal University of Technology, Owerri (Futo)
🎓• University of Ibadan (UI)
🎓• University of Port Harcourt (Uniport)
This are popular-one of the popular- institutions in Nigeria. The reason why we advice that you stay away from this universities is to boost your chances of admission, not because you are not intelligent, but because admission slots are very limited, the competition in these institutions is higher and if it is not your catchment area, then your chance of getting admitted is equal to zero. (Sorry!)
But still, if you must choose any of the above institutions, please also look for Universities that
accept 2nd choice and that are not too competitive. Take note of this as you will remember it when Admission commence for 2020.
Now success Tips 6 will show us courses that are very competitive and why you have to ignore them.
🕹Tips 6. All candidates seeking Admission into Tertiary Institutions via the JAMB 2020/2021 UTME exercise are advice to be very careful in their selection of courses, it is no news that the following courses have the highest number of applicants.
• Medicine And Surgery
• Law/Civil Law
• Pharmacy etc.
• Mechanical Engr/civil/elect elect etc.
Selecting one of the above means you will be competing with thousands of candidates for the space, which is likely not up to hundreds in all the Institutions. But if you are however interested in any of the above courses, you must learn how to balance your selections appropriately to increase your chances of getting admitted. Ensure you also select courses that has few number of candidates, and by so doing, you can be sure of your Admission and if you¡ so please, you can apply for change of course after been admitted: Some institution will charge you N15000,N1000,N500 to change your course option.
This is as to boost your chances of admission, not because you are not intelligent, but because slots are limited,competition is higher and you are getting older, plus, ASUU would make you age before time,
hence, make hay while the sun shine.
Tips 7. It is important also that you know the
accreditation status of the course(s) you want to apply for in the choice Institutions before submitting your application.
🎓What is Accreditation of course?
Some university offer courses that has not been approved by the National Universities Commission
(NUC) , and if you end up in one of those departments, you would have wasted your years for nothing! Because you won’t be given any original certificate! For example; Medicine and Surgery has NOT been accredited in the Benue State University, BSUM and many others
Universities, and candidates who is admitted into
BSUM will end up spending 8+ years in vain.
How will you know if your course has been accredited in your choice institution?
You can know this from the Jamb 2020 Brochure that will be given to you when you purchase the Jamb 2020-2021 UTME Form. Also you can drop your comment and we will let you know if you are good to go.
Tips 8. Most Institutions requires a cut-off of 240
in the JAMB-UTME. (example of such institution is University of Ilorin ) the minimum cut off for Medicine in Unilorin is 240 and 220+ for major courses, while admission at the University of Ibadan and Unilag begins with your O-Level results, therefore, its very important that you have the basic requirements of the Institution before applying for admission. In fact, this apply to almost all the Institutions in Nigeria. Ensure you have your COMPLETE O’LEVEL RESULTS for your chosen courses before buying Jamb, if you don’t have, you are only going to frustrate yourself. Even when you are admitted, you will be screen out after they collect your acceptance fee and school fee.
Tips 9. DO NOT apply for admission into Institutions outside your catchment areas, else, you risk your chance of being admitted.
Tips 10. Take note: Once you have submitted your
application form for the JAMB 2020/2021 UTME, there is no more opportunity to initial any change (Waiting For Jamb data correction, delays admission) therefore, we advice candidates to check all the fields properly, including passport, names, first and
second institutions, finger prints before
submission, because all would be verified before you are admitted for the JAMB 2020 Examination.
Tips 11: Candidate who score below cut off mark, for the specified institution they applied, should not be running around to for the admission, with the little time you have , go and obtain your data correction and change to another institution immediately “No time”.
Tip:12: The recent concluded Jamb (2019), any candidate who are yet to see there admission CAPs Read (Accepted/Admitted), are not to loose hope, if Jamb did not give you admission your school will offer you the provisional admission.
Moreover, HND or BSC is all the same, reason why is that most Polytechnics are highly practically recognized by Nigerian Officers, than Bsc holder.
