As this year UTME registration is still ongoing, it's a great pleasure on my part to cease this golden opportunity to advice prospective UTME candidate about the potential consequences of their choice of University.
To start with, it is an undeniable fact that a lot of parents and guildians would love to have their ward(s) in any of the high-profile Universities like OAU, UI, UNILAG, and UNILORIN. Perhaps, because of the reputations of those institutions in offering qualitative university education.
However, I would like to recommend that the average or slightly below average students should avoid these institutions, at least for this year if scoring a very high marks in UTME will be a challenge to them. This is because of the likelihood to have a very high enrollment in those institutions thus, an increased competition for admission. How do I mean?
The COVID-19 pandemics which affected last year admission in most of the schools meant that a lot of candidate whom are supposed to have been in the University by now will be retaking UTME examination again this year, thus, keeping the numbers of admission seekers into those Universities at an alarming rate. As a result of this, there is unlikely going to be an unnecessary hype in the University cut-off mark to disqualify some students.
Conclusively, it's advisable for the not-so-good students to cut their cloth according to their sizes by opting for a university where admission will not be based on Charles Darwin evolutionary principle.
