JAMB end 2nd choice university selection.
The Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) has disclosed that
candidates for the 2017 UTME will not be able to choose two public
universities during the registration.
This was disclosed through the board’s twitter handle. It reads:
“candidates can select NCE as their choice up to three times I.e 1st
choice, 2nd choice and 3rd choice.
“But they are not allowed to select two public universities as choices.
If candidates select a public university as their degree awarding
choices, they are allowed to select a private university as another
According to the Mr. Benjamin Head of Information JAMB, the Board took
the restrictions because candidates hardly get admissions into their
second and third choice universities.
“Yes we restricted the choice to one but candidates can choose as many colleges or polytechnics,” he said.
“We discovered it was of no use choosing a university as second choice
when in actual sense they can’t even accommodate their first choices,”
the JAMB official said.
