Getting it right in your university admission application in Nigeria through UTME

In the 2016/2017 university admission season the story went viral on the internet about a young lady who scored 320/400 in her UTME but failed to make the merit list to study Medicine and Surgery at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife.

Her inability to make the merit list for medicine and surgery in OAU with her high UTME score can be understood when you consider the new JAMB admission rules where a candidate’s total score is an aggregate of their O-level results and their UTME score.

In the new JAMB admission rules released in 2016, O-level results are weighted to make up 40% of the total score while the UTME make up the remaining 60% of the total score. So, the young lady who scored 320/400 in her UTME was let down by her O-level aggregate score.

To make the merit list for Medicine and Surgery at the University of Lagos (Unilag) with 320/400 in 2016 a candidate would have required an O-level aggregate of 30/40. This can be interpreted as having an O-level result of 2 As, 2 Bs and 1 C in English Language, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics at one sitting.

The new JAMB admission rules mean that O-level results have been given more importance. It implies that making the minimum credit pass in the required five subjects at one sitting my no longer suffice especially for highly competitive courses like Medicine and Surgery, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Engineering, Computer Science, Law, English Language, Mass Communication, Architecture, Accounting, Business Administration, and Economics. The candidate should aim for A1s in their O-levels to stand a better chance of gaining admission into a University in Nigeria.

Equally important is that applicants must have the proper subject combination in their O-levels and their UTME for a successful admission application. For instance, many applicants do not know that Further Mathematics is a requirement to study Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics in most Nigerian universities, just as Literature in English is a requirement for Law, English Language, and Mass Communication.

Without the proper subject combination, even with high O-level and UTME scores, a school can deny admission to an applicant. Therefore, the application process is a very important one and parents, guardians, teachers and the candidates must have the right information to make good choices for the applicant.

When a course of study has been identified it is important that:

  1. The right O-level and UTME subject combination is selected;

  2. The candidate should know what O-level results they need for a successful application;

  3. The candidate should know what UTME score they need for their course;

  4. The candidate should know what school options are at their disposal and which ones would favour them more than others.

Finally, candidates, parents, guardians and teachers must be honest with the candidate and make realistic choices based on the ability and capability of the candidate. There are many courses and schools to choose from. A high cut-off mark is usually a function of the demand for the course.

JAMB Officially Drops Cut-off Mark for 2016 Admission and Adopts Point System Option

JAMB has finally ditched the allocation of cut off-marks for admissions into tertiary institutions in Nigeria, the guideline for the 2016 admission process released on Monday evening has shown.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced the release of its guidelines for the 2016 admissions’ process.

The method, described as the point system option, was adopted after an extensive one-week meeting JAMB had with universities and other tertiary institutions’ administrators in the country.

According to the guidelines contained in a statement placed on its website on Monday night, JAMB said that the modalities were going to be based on point system.

While explaining how the admission process would work for Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination candidates and direct entry students, the organisation stated that universities were going to charge fees for screening of candidates at the end of the process for admission.

According to JAMB, the new method uses a point system to offer provisional admission to candidates.

“Before a candidate can be considered for screening, he/she must have been offered a provisional admission by JAMB. The JAMB admission checker portal is going to be opened soon for this process, so praying is all you can do now,” JAMB said.

The second process, it said, was the point system where admission would depend on the point tally of the candidate.

The statement said, “JAMB’s provisional admission no longer makes much sense this year, your points tally will decide your faith. The points are evenly spread out between your O’ Level and JAMB results to provide a level-playing field for all.

“In the first case, any candidate who submits only one result which contains his/her relevant subjects already has 10 points. The exam could be NECO, WASSCE, November/December WASSCE etc, but any candidate who has two sittings only gets 2 points. So this means that candidates with only one result are at an advantage but only just.”

The organisation added that the “next point grades fell into the O’ Level grades where each grade would have it equivalent point; A=6 marks, B=4 marks, C=3 marks, so the better the candidates’ grades, the better his or her chances of securing admission this year.

“The next point is the UTME scores where each score range has its equivalent point which can be summarised thus, 180-200=20-23 marks, 200-250=24-33 points, 251-300=34-43, 300-400=44-60 points,” JAMB explained.

Giving a breakdown, JAMB explained that each category would contain five JAMB results per point added.

For example a candidate with 180-185 gets 20 points, while a candidate with 186-190 gets 21 points. JAMB added that the point system for direct entry would be released soon.

JAMB stated that fees would still be charged for screening which would replace the Post UTME test. It also emphasised that catchment and educationally less-developed state would still be used for admission into the nation’s tertiary institutions.

JAMB said, “Merit contains 45 per cent of the total candidates for a particular course, Catchment contains 35 per cent and ELDS and staff lists contains the rest. Cut off marks will be released by the institutions this year in the form of points and not marks.

“If a school declares its cut off mark for Medicine as 90 points and JAMB grants a candidate with 250 a provisional admission but his/her total points falls short of the 90 points, then he/she will lose the admission. So the provisional admission is just a means to an end, not the end in itself.”

How our home tutorials prepare our candidates for Unilag Post UTME and Foundation Programme entrance examinations

The candidates for whom we provide home tutorials towards University of Lagos (Unilag) entrance examinations fall into two categories. The first category are those who have unsuccessfully attempted JAMB/UTME/Post UTME/Foundation Programme entrance exams at least once while the second category are fresh school leavers.

The approach to preparing these two categories of candidates are different but they both aim at the same goal of preparing the candidates adequately to succeed in their entrance exams.

Usually, because they have been out of school for some time the first category of candidates are a little low on confidence when we first meet them and may feel they are forgetting what they learned in school. With no WASSCE or NECO to distract them however, there is usually enough time to focus and prepare them for the Post UTME or Foundation Programme entrance exams. Our early classes assess the candidates to know their state of readiness for the exams and by the time we are mid-way into the tutorial sessions, we have identified their areas of strength and weakness. We are then able to tune our preparation to meet the individual needs of the candidate.

In-between our tutorial sessions we give home works and encourage our candidates to study by themselves to build on their academic skill and proficiency.

In the course of the tutorials we give five assessments similar in strength to the actual examination being prepared for such that by the time our candidates are writing the actual Post UTME or Foundation Programme entrance exam it would appear to them that they writing the same exam for the sixth time! By this time they are poised to succeed.

The second category of our candidates are fresh school leavers who have just spent the previous three months of April – June writing WASSCE and NECO. They are usually exam fatigued by the time, towards the end of June, when we begin our preparations and typically have about four – six weeks before Post UTME and Foundation Programme entrance exams.

They have also spent the previous three school years preparing for school leaving examinations which are of a different nature to Post UTME and Foundation Programme. While preparing them for WASSCE/NECO can be likened to preparing them to win a game of football within the 90 minutes regulation time, preparing them for Post UTME and Foundation Programme can be likened to preparing them for extra time and penalty kicks.

Whichever category our candidates belong to we let them know of the challenge before them and show them how to surmount it. Additionally, we try to reinforce into them the ability to study by themselves which is critical for success at the University.

Our tutors are graduates and current students of the University of Lagos who know what it takes to succeed at the University entrance examinations. Details of our home tutorial services can be found at:
