JAMB 2017 Updates : Candidates To Choose Only One Public University During Registration

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 choice.”
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
“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.
What do you think of this development and the
reason given by JAMB for this?

  1. The development is good. It is better to select two polytenics than two public university because any public university you choose as second choice will first consider there first choice candidates. So it is of no use choosing two public universities.


  2. it is a very good idea sir, it is better that way, one public, one Private.


  3. how on earth do they expect students to pay for private institutions? ?
