A. O’level Result

O’,level Result is very important in admission process, the first thing to consider first is the Five (5) Relevant O’level subjects, this is the relevant subject of a department be it Commercial , Art or  Science. Every student must have nothing less than a lower credit in the relevant O’level subjects ; candidates must not have a D , E or Fail.

For example;

The five O’level subjects are very essential.

B. JAMB Cut Off Mark

All candidates aspiring to any higher institution should make sure he/she meets the cut off mark of the respective institution and note that there is school cut off mark and departmental cut off.

C. Uploading Of O’level Results To JAMB CAPS

This result uploading to JAMB CAPS is well enforced in 2020 and JAMB is still stressing on it, this caused lots of candidates to miss admission.
Respective candidates should make sure they go to JAMB Office or any of it’s accredited centres to  upload their O’level results to JAMB CAPS, you can simply confirm the entries on JAMB portal by checking your CAPS , then O’level results .

Note: This simple step can cost you to miss admission if not done.

D. POST UTME or Screening Cut Off Mark

This is the exam you do as an entrance examination to any Institution , but some institution are now using the screening method by using your O’level results and JAMB score to rate.
You must make sure you meet the departmental cut off.

E. Course Subject Combination

This is also highly important, I put use course subject because some candidate always make the mistakes of using the subject combination of Accounting for Economics , it might work but many Institution take this seriously you can easily get it right by using the JAMB TOOL :

F. Age

This sounds not important but it is , talking about some Institution like UNILAG , your age is very important, if you’re not up to 16 years you might be denied admission into UNILAG. 7 Ways To Secure An Admission To Any University Or Polytechnic In Nigeria.

G. Choice Of Institution

Your choice of institution really matters but many candidates are not aware , that’s why I’m writing this.
All Universities in Nigeria except Private Universities and Federal University Of Oye Ekiti (FOUYE) are only considering First choice.

FOUYE Is considering second choice .
Also Note That some polytechnic don’t accept second choice, like Polytechnic Of Ibadan, you can only choose them as first .
