JAMB Score Below 150 – Your Next Step
This thread is for candidates who scored below 150 in the 2015 Unified tertiary Matriculation Examination.
The purpose of this thread is to guide you on the next step you are to take.
At this point, I know you have concluded that no admission is coming forth for you this year considering your score.
Be that as it may, there is truly no issue or problem that does not have an antidote.
What you ought to do now is to consider other options or alternatives to securing admission.
Basically there are four options, pre-degree programmes (Universities), evening programmes (polytechnics), part-time programmes (universities and polytechnics) and Interim Joint Matriculation Board (IJMB).
The Pre-Degree Programme is offered by many universities and is designed to support candidates who did not meet certain requirement for admission.
The candidates are usually admitted into a degree programme of their choice after completing the pre-degree programme which usually takes a year.
Candidates who apply for part-time and evening progammes gets admitted directly to 100 level just like UTME candidates, the only difference here is you are likely going to spend one additional year. That is 5 years for a course a UTME candidates would have spent 4 years. Also the tuition fees are usually high.
IJMB is an Advanced Level programme that allows successful students to get admissions into 200 Level of any Nigerian university of their choice after completing the programme. The programme usually last not more than a year.
However, if all these options do not suit you, you have one other last option. That is, TRYING AGAIN.
That you did not do well in your UTME this year does not mean you will not do well next year.
I wish you all the best as you make your decisions. You can use this medium to interact among yourselves and share valuable information to help one another.
