New Policy: JAMB Set to notify candidates of new school/course selection – JAMB Staff
According to the JAMB Staff, “Some of the candidates who scored more than 200 and are being rejected for some courses, happened based on the individual cut-off marks set by the institution for those particular courses. In summary too many students applied for those courses and the University can only admit a fraction of the candidates who applied. JAMB will therefore notify candidates of appropriate Universities/Course they can apply for.”
It is therefore our deduction that these rejected candidates will be sent to study the same courses in other Universities of lesser competition. This policy also ensures that best candidates in the country are admitted, even if it means posting them to other institutions.
The new policy to evenly distribute candidates by JAMB has met heavy criticism based on the fact that forms were sold for candidates to Change their Course/Institution. If JAMB knew they would effect such a policy, they should never have sold Change of Course/institution forms. This makes us believe that it is quite possible that Change of Course/institution Candidates will get preferential treatment in this new policy.
