KINDLY ADVICE ON WHY YOU NOT USE TWO SITTINGS TO APPLY FOR JAMB
Kindly Advice On Why You Not Use Two Sittings To Apply For Jamb...
I know alot of aspirants are about to use two sittings for JAMB 2019 registration, I am not writing this blog post to discourage you. I just want to enlighten you on why you should not use two sittings result.
If you are first timer of writing JAMB exam, you might not know what i meant by "Two sittings result ", i will explain before going into why i think two sitting results are not advisable.
WHAT IS TWO SITTINGS RESULT
Two sitting result is like combining two results of different exams because you probably didn't have good grade in the subject you need. For example, Ade wrote WAEC in 2015 and he failed Mathematics which is a compulsory subject, then he will have to re-sit for another o'level exam (WAEC, NECO,GCE) , if he then fail English Language but pass Mathematics , then he will combine both of them together . As simple as that!!!
Now going into the reasons why two sittings is not advisable;
UNABLE TO APPLY FOR COMPETITIVE COURSES
This is the plain truth, you won't be able to apply for competitive courses like medicine, law, engineering and so on. Apart from the number of candidates that usually choose the course, the school you choosed might also reject two sittings for such courses. For example, In UI, you can't apply for medicine with two sittings result, your admission will be terminated during the clearance immediately they know you are using two sittings result.
DIFFICULTY TO GAIN ADMISSION INTO TOP UNIVERSITIES IN NIGERIA
You know top universities like UNILAG, UI, OAU, it might be a little difficult to apply and finally gain admission into them because of the high number of candidates that usually choose them.
IT LIMITS YOUR OPTIONS
As you should know that a candidate with one sitting result can choose any school or course, such opportunity is not available for those with two sittings result. At this point , JAMB Brochures should be your best friend because it will show you the schools and courses you can apply for.
WHAT YOU SHOULD DO
You can kindly register for the ongoing WAEC registration and read hard to pass all required subjects.
But if you cant afford to register again, you can go on to apply because alot of candidates have been admitted despite using two sittings result, you should just make sure you check the JAMB brochures very well before you select any school or course.
