This thread is for candidates who scored 150-179 and above in the 2016 Unified tertiary Matriculation Examination.
Apparently, you did not meet the cut-off mark that is acceptable in any known university but that does not mean you cannot secure any admission this year.
You may have concluded that a polytechnic is your best option at this point. However, you can still gain admission into 200Level in a University. Yes! You read right, a university. Have you heard about IJMB Programme? IJMB means Interim Joint Matriculation Board, while IJMBE is the “Examination” itself. IJMB is an Advanced-Level (A-Level) Course, which you take for 9 months, after which you take a final exam that gives you a certificate.
With the certificate obtained at the end of the programme, you can apply for admission into 200 Level in institutions like UNILAG, ABU, UNILORIN, UNIPORT.
However, if you still want to settle for a polytechnic, the first step to take now is to verify if you have the required cut-off mark for your course of study in the polytechnic you selected during UTME Registration.
The information gathered will enable you know if you are to go for JAMB change of course or institution.
Also you have the hurdle of post-UTME to deal with. Experience has shown that most institutions usually repeat their post-UTME questions. That means that studying with a post-UTME past questions would be of great help.
