2014 JAMB TIPS FOR UNIVERSITY ADMISSIONS...READ BEFORE FILLING YOUR JAMB REGISTRATION FORMS!

JAMB-EXAMINATION-2013

Tip 1. Following the words of the JAMB Registrar after the 2013 exercise, Prof Dibu Ojerinde said: “We have gone digital in JAMB.” What he meant by ‘going digital’ is that  in the Jamb 2014/2015 UTME examination the Computer Based Test is likely to be more popular than it was in 2013 . 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”  and when it reaches the allotted time, it will switch off, even if you have not answered any question! So the call to be fast is important.

Tip 2. All admission-seeking candidates in the Jamb 2014, mostly candidates from  the Southern states are advised to make early registrations  to avoid missing out on available centers. Last season (Jamb 2013), with a record number of 1.8 million candidates centres were exhausted  within three months of beginning of registrations, and late registrants were pushed to the North, north east and north central zones  to take their examinations.If you are not used to  the north, why risk going there to write your Jamb exam? A lot of candidates missed  last year’s jamb exams due to this problem.So we encourage you to purchase the form  and register VERY EARLY!

Tip 3. Applicants who wrote the JAMB 2013/2014 UTME examination and selected the Paper and Pencil Type (PPT) were basically victims of various inefficiencies of by the board, with majority of them, forced to settle with scores that are not theirs. We therefore advise candidates applying for the JAMB 2014/2015 UTME to thread carefully, on what  type of exam to select, We recommend the Computer Based Test (CBT) and if you are good with computers, and there is no need to be scared of it. From last year’s experience, many candidates who chose CBT came out with flying colours.

Tip 4. From statistics, over 1.8 million students registered  for the 2013 exams but less than 500,000  were going to be admitted.Let us also note that  about 1.2 million students may also be in their final secondary school years now.So more than 2 million candidates may  participate in the next exams in 2014. We therefore suggest an all-round  preparations by candidates. One way to beat  JAMB is to read more tips on https://lagosbooksclub.wordpress.com  and http://mile2herald.wordpress.com.

Tip 5. Only very confident candidates should select from the most popular institutions such as UNILAG,OAU,UI,UNN,UNIBEN,UNILORIN,UNIZIK,FUTO,UNIPORT,ABU.These are about the most popular institutions in Nigeria. The reason why we recommend that you stay away from these universities is to boost your chances of admission and not because you are not intelligent, Admission slots are very limited and the competition for these institutions is fiercer. Also if a Federal University does not cover your catchment area, then your chances of getting admitted is equal to zero. But still, if you must choose any of them please also look for courses that are not too competitive. Take note of all these before you register.

Tips 6. All candidates  are  also advised to be very careful in their selection of courses.It is no news that the following courses USUALLY have the highest number of applicants.
• Medicine And Surgery
• Economics
• Accounting
• 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 to be lesser than 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 such as EDUCATION that have fewer numbers of candidates. By so doing, you can be sure of a higher probability of admission.You may thereafter apply for a change of course after been admitted. This suggestion is to  boost your chances of and not because you are not intelligent.The reality is that the slots of many of these courses are limited, competition is higher and you are getting older.After factoring in ASUU there is a possibility some may get discouraged or age  before one’s time. Hence, make hay while the sun shines.

Tip 7. These days it has also become important  that you know about the accreditation status of the course(s) you want to apply for in your choice Institutions before submitting your application.

What is Accreditation of course?
Some university offer courses that have not been approved by the National Universities Commission (NUC), and if you end up in one of those departments not eventually approved you would have wasted your years for nothing. You won’t be given any original certificate by the University! For example; Medicine and Surgery has NOT been accredited in the Benue State University, BSUM and many others Universities, and candidates  admitted there might  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 2014 Brochure that will be given to you when you purchase the Jamb 2014-2015 UTME Form.

Tip 8. Most Institutions require 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 screened out after they collect your acceptance  and school fees.

Tip 9. DO NOT apply for admission into Institutions outside your catchment areas.You lower your chances of being admitted by doing so

What are catchment areas?(See your Jamb Brochure for more notes in this)

Tip 10. Take note: Once you have submitted your application form for the JAMB 2014/2015 UTME and gotten registered through an approved centre there is no more opportunity to initiate any change.Therefore, we advice candidates to check all the fields properly, including passport, names,  institutions of choice and fingerprints before submission.This is because all would be verified one time or the other along the way before you are admitted for the Examination.

    • …normally most schools accept fine art combined with any two arts or social science subjects…in that wise your subject choices are okay…however acceptable subjects in the brochure for fine art under OAU states SAME AS THOSE UNDER INDUSTRIAL DESIGN which OAU DOES NOT OFFER…only ABU does…for that reason our opinion is that you are safer with your choice of subjects…good luck…
