You may have concluded that no admission is coming forth for you this year considering your score. However, the saying that there is no problem without a solution stands true even in this case.

We want to use this medium to guide you on the next step to take.

One thing I need you to know before I continue is that JAMB UTME is not the only gateway to a higher institution. Since the 2016 UTME wasn’t favourable to you, you may need to consider other alternatives to securing admission.

There are four alternatives you need to consider now, namely; pre-degree programmes (Universities), Evening Programmes (polytechnics), Part-time programmes (universities and polytechnics) and Interim Joint Matriculation Board (IJMB).

1. Apply for Pre-Degree Programmes

The Pre-Degree Programme is offered by many universities and is designed to support candidates who did not meet certain requirements for admission. The candidates are usually admitted into a degree programme of their choice after completing the pre-degree programme which usually lasts for a year. You can always check on Pre-Degree Forms for updates on school pre-degree programmes.

Candidates who apply for part-time and evening progammes get admitted directly to 100 level just like UTME candidates, the only difference here is you are likely going to spend one additional year. That is 5 years for a course a UTME candidate would have spent 4 years on. Also the tuition fees are usually high.

IJMB means Interim Joint Matriculation Board, while IJMBE is the “Examination” itself. IJMB is an Advanced-Level (A-Level) Course, which you take for 9 months, after which you take a final exam that gives you a certificate.

IJMB seems to be the best alternative because the certificate obtained at the end of the programme can be used to apply for 200 Level Admission into institutions like UNILAG, ABU, UNILORIN, UNIPORT. See full List of Universities Accepting IJMB.
However, if all these options do not suit you, you have one other last option. That is, TRYING AGAIN.
That you did not succeed this year does not mean you will not succeed next year.

I wish you all the best as you make your decisions. You can use this medium to interact among yourselves and share valuable information that will help one another.
