The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has made it compulsory that O’level results and Advanced level results (For Direct Entry) of all the candidates recommended for admission by any institutions must undergo verification by JAMB before such candidates can be offered admission.
This means that when a candidate is recommended for admission by any institution, JAMB will verify if the person actually has the O’level requirement for that course of study. Candidates will no longer be recommended for admission just by what they scored in JAMB exam
This equally means that whatever O’level result or Advanced level result (for Direct Entry candidates) you submitted during JAMB registration, Post-UTME registration, or screening will be verified by JAMB before admission will be offered to you.
This is to ensure that only candidates with the right O’level results and O’level subject combination for their intended course of study will be admitted to study that course. So if you do not have credit passes in the required O’level subjects for your intended course of study, there will be no admission for you into that course.
The implication of this is that even if your school of choice admits you when JAMB has not approved your admission, that admission will not be officially recognized. It is an illegal admission and you will definitely have issues in the future with such admission.
For instance, you will be unable to go for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) because only candidates whose admissions were approved by JAMB will be able to register for NYSC.
And don’t forget that with the newly introduces Central Admission Processing System, it will be very easy to identify candidates whose admissions are illegal or whose admissions were not officially approved by JAMB.
Candidates are therefore advised to ensure that their O’level results are uploaded on the JAMB portal. This will enable their schools of choice to recommend them for admission and give them a better chance of being offered admission if they meet the needed requirements.
Don’t forget to share this post. Many candidates need to read this.
