UTME 2018: Here is what you need to do if you don't want to lose your admission
JAMB now has a new way for students to secure their admission.
Dear Nigerian students, here is what you need to do if you don't want to lose your admission.
Right after announcing that 200,000 candidates have been granted admission for the 2018/2019 academic session, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) went on to disclose a new way for students to secure the said admission.
What you need to do if you don't want to lose your admission
Speaking to reporters from the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday, October 7, 2018, in Lagos, the Head, Media and Information of the JAMB, Fabian Benjamin strongly advised students to immediately visit the site in order to accept and secure their admission.
According to him, failure to do this would mean the student is not interested and the body has the right to give the admission to any of the 1.6 million candidates who wrote JAMB-organised 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), according to NAN.
In his words, "To this effect, therefore, we are urging candidates to go to our site and check their admission status and those who have been offered such admission should quickly indicate by accepting and printing such offer, as failure to do so will automatically mean the candidate is no longer interested. And therefore, the board may see all such offers as rejected and would have no option than to mop them up and give it to other interested candidates."
Students have been advised to secure their admission before October 16, 2018.
The Head, Media, and Information of the JAMB continued: "Candidates are to accept or reject all offers not later than Oct.16 as that is when all offers of admissions of first choice will close."
Benjamin added, "After that, we will commence admission exercise for the second choice of candidates."
This year's Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination was conducted from March 9 to 17, 2018.
