Examination

 

You can still gain admission with your low UTME score

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (Jamb) is set to meet with the Head of tertiary institutions today at a policy meeting, to decide on the minimum cut-off mark for the 2021/2022 admission exercise.

It was reported that many candidates who sat for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) this year, failed woefully. Many of the candidates who failed have given up on admission but the truth is, you still have the chance to be admitted.

Jamb registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede once said: "So, as far as UTME is concerned, it is a ranking examination. Therefore, there is neither pass nor failure, because it is not the examination that qualifies its candidates for admission". The statement above is indicative that candidates with lower UTME scores can still gain admission to their choice institutions.

Notwithstanding, you should have it at the back of your mind that you need to have at least Five o'level credits which include English language and Mathematics. All you need to do now is to prepare for your choice institution's post utme examinations.
