2021 UTME: Why You May Not Be Admitted Despite Your High Score

Scoring high in the ongoing Universal Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), is not a total guarantee of gaining an admission into the University. Today I am going to share three reasons why some students may not be admitted despite their good grades in the UTME. Although, scoring high is one of the criteria for gaining admission but is not really the final as there are other requirements that is more Paramount compared to high score.

It is expected from every students to provides the following requirements before you can be admitted in the University aside from UTME result; 

1. Your O'level result (i.e. WASSCE, NECO, NABTEB)

2. You must also provide your age declaration certificate as one of the criteria to be admitted.

3. Your certificate of Local Government of origin.

4. Aptitude test rest.

The above are some of the requirements require from students before they can be admitted aside UTME result. Therefore, failure to provide the above items or credentials may caused your admission to be terminated despite your good UTME score.

Here are Reasons why some students will not be admitted despite their high score:

1. Failure to pass Mathematics and English Language in his/her O'Level:

Following the instructions by all Tertiary institutions in Nigeria, that a student must have a credit in both Mathematics and English Language before he/she can be admitted. Therefore, it is expected that every students seeking for admission must have at least 'C' in both Mathematics and English Language before admission.

2. Wrong subjects combination:

This is another important fact, on why some students are always denied admission despite their UTME high score. wrong subjects combination is a situation where a person seeking for admission in the Tertiary institutions make the wrong choice in choosing the subjects that will suits his/her desire course in school. for instance, a student aspiring for Medicine and surgery can not include Mathematics during the UTME, but instead Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Use-Of-English which are the require subjects for Medicine and surgery students.

3. Failure to Register with the Institution he/she aspires to study:

After the UTME, candidates are expected to register with the Institution of their choice(i.e the school they want to study). Failure to do this, can render their result useless despite scoring high in the UTME. 

In conclusion, there are some books which every students should read that will prepare them for their career in the future.
