After the 2020 admission cut off marks and the date for the commencement of admission process into tertiary institutions in Nigeria has been announced by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), some questions that are yet to be answered have evolved.
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) through professor Isiaq Oloyede, the board's registrar who announced the minimum of 160, 120 and 100 utme score for admission into universities, polytechnics and colleges of education respectively has remained silent on some questions that keep evolving as a result of incompletion of the utme and other issues.
The board also disclosed the date for the commencement of 2020 admission process to be on August 21, 2020.
After this announcement, a number of candidates have been in extreme fear, especially candidates who are using the awaiting result method and who are yet to write their ordinary level examination due to the outbreak of the pandemic Corona virus.
The question that has became a song to this candidates is "what is our chance of gaining admission this year?". The fact is that if one is using awaiting result method, one ordinary result must be uploaded to the jamb portal during admission screening before one will be considered for admission. Hence, candidates that fall into this category still have a chance of meeting the admission process for this year provided they have written their examination before then. Although the board remain silent on this, perhaps the issue is critical, candidates should pray fervently for God's intervention.
You can only be disqualified or not considered for admission as an awaiting result candidate only when you have failed to provide your O'level result within the time frame given by the school you applied to for admission.
The other set of candidates with different question are the candidates that are yet to write their UTME because of the pandemic Corona virus restriction on students. This set of candidates do make inquiry like "when shall we write our examination". Answer to this question is that nothing can be done regarding this case as the pandemic Corona virus impede the progress of the examination and this may not meet the admission process. Hence, candidates who are experiencing this should hope for the next year utme because in the view of things, the examination may not come up this year. Although the board remain silent on this issue, this is my perspective regarding the case.
These sets of candidates should be fervent in prayer because no one know what the board is planning to do. I wish the board resolve this in no time to put smile on the candidates face.
If you have any question regarding jamb and admission process, kindly drop your question in the comment section. You will be answered promptly.
