JAMB had earlier in the year instructed that all higher institutions should conclude all their admission processes before 31st Oct, 2017. You can read details of our report on this by clicking here.
with barely a week to this deadline, the question now remains; will institutions be able to meet the deadline? The simple answer is No!
We at school of stellanaija, have been closely monitoring the 2017/2018 admission process and with the way it’s going, we believe admission lists will continue to be released up until the end of the year.
Based on history, schools are known to release multiple admission lists, which could take several months to completely release them all. We’re not quite sure if these names were already ready before the deadline or not.
So really, when JAMB says admission deadline is 31st Oct, we don’t quite know what they mean by that since admission lists will still be released after the deadline.
We hereby remind all those who have been given admission, please get your admission letter on time. Don’t procrastinate because anything can happen in the near future.
This is also a call to all those who are yet to be given admission, not to give up and expect their names to be shortlisted in other batches of admission list in their various schools or on JAMB portal.
While you expect your name in the coming admission list, you should however be able to know when to draw the line and run to purchase the 2018 JAMB form, which closes as early as 16th Jan, 2018. The truth is, even if you purchase your JAMB form early, and you later gain admission, you should be happy to forgo the exam rather than hope by not getting the form and later get disappointed. If the latter is the case, that’s till 2017!
For those yet to be offered admission, maybe you have been posted to another institution that you may consider attending. If you want to check if you have been posted to another school that you may consider going to, click here to access the portal. Then enter your JAMB registration number in the space provided.
You can also consider other alternatives to JAMB such as IJMB or Cambridge A’level exams that give you direct 200 Level entry into the University to study what you want. If you are looking to do any of these programmes, look for our partners websites either at the top or at the sides of this website.
