Remember that yesterday, we made an update regarding JAMB new policy which limits candidates from being able to choose 2 public universities. Incase you also missed the 2017 JAMB pre-registration tips also posted, feel free to check out the full details. Well, there is something new. The board has thrown more light to the reason it came up with the “Not more than two public Universities” policy; and this is the reason.
The new update was revealed by JAMB via its official twitter handle @JambHQ on Friday.
It reads: “candidates can select NCE as their choice up to three times I.e 1st choice, 2nd choice and 3rd choice.
“But they are not allowed to select two public universities as choices. If candidates select a public university as their degree awarding choices, they are allowed to select a private university as another choice.”
Mr. Benjamin told PREMIUM TIMES that the Board took the restrictions because candidates hardly get admissions into their second and third choice universities.
“Yes we restricted the choice to one but candidates can choose as many colleges or polytechnics,” he said.
“We discovered it was of no use choosing a university as second choice when in actual sense they can’t even accommodate their first choices,” the JAMB official said.
Candidates have however cried foul over this new information as they lamented that the board is indirectly enforcing the choice of private university on them.
The candidates also lamented due to the huge sum paid as school fees in private universities stating that they are not affordable by most Nigerian parents.
“The fees nko? Jamb go help the students pay the fees for the private universities? You can’t force somebody to attend private universities,” a Twitter user, Robinson said.
