JAMB Gives Reason why Candidates Can No Longer Apply to Two Public Universities
The Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB), is restricting candidates from choosing two public universities during the 2017 online registration.
Fabian Benjamin, who is JAMB’s Head of Media and Information revealed the information formally.
The body revealed details via their twitter handle, where they said:
“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.”
The reason for this according to Benjamin, was that candidates hardly get admissions into their second and third choice universities.“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,” Benjamin said.
