ADMISSION LIST AND WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
What is Admission list: Admission list is a list that contains the names of candidates that have been offered provisional admission to study in a University, Polytechnic, college of Education or other institutions that have the right to offer admission.
There are usually four sets of Admission list released by various Universities and polytechnics in Nigeria. They include:
- First batch admission list.
- Second batch admission list.
- Third batch admission list.
- Supplementary list.
First batch admission list: This is also called merit admission list. It is given to those who score very high and deserve to be admitted irrespective of the State they come from. Those admitted in the merit list are usually given their choice of course.
Other lists: Other admission lists are given based on criteria such as catchment (the state you come from) and educationally less developed states. Not everyone will get the course they applied for in the second or third batch admission list. For example, you applied to study medicine in the university of Benin, but your score is not high enough to study medicine, you could be given admission to study Agricultural science or Engineering.
Who Gains Admission? To gain admission in Nigeria, four things are involved, it’s either you merit it, your state is the catchment area of the school, you are from an educationally less developed State or you buy the admission.
When Is Admission List Released? Admission list is usually released after Waec and Jamb have concluded their examination. The various Universities then decide their cut off and begin to give admission based on the guidelines given by Jamb.
Is It Jamb or Universities That Offer Admission? Jamb and your University or polytechnic of Choice work hand-in-hand to determine who gains admission.
