Things You Must Do After Seeing Your JAMB Result, 10 Steps to Admission Success | Many candidates usually ask the question, “what next after JAMB?” or what do I do next after seeing my JAMB result?

Steps to Admission Success

What next after Jamb and when will Jamb start giving admission? This is another question asked by two sets of persons; those who failed Jamb And those who passed.

For those who failed Jamb, it is very simple. Get a job or learn skills even as you prepare for next year Jamb.

Also, understand that failing Jamb is not the end of life and it doesn’t mean that you are a failure. Time and chance happen to everything. You can still make Jamb and Gain Admission if you mean it.

For those who passed Jamb, it is not the end of the journey. You must put structures in place so that you don’t fail to gain admission. After all, passing Jamb is not a guarantee that your admission is sure.

The Joint Admission and Matriculation (JAMB) result for this year has been released online, and most candidates have already checked their results. While many students are smiling home with high scores, others are thinking about what they will do with their low scores, since some schools cut off marks starts from 180 and above.

Take note that no matter your scores, you still have the option of securing admission in your school of choice.

10 Things To Do After JAMB 2023 UTME

Back to the question, what next after Jamb? That’s exactly what I am about to teach you. Take a glass of water and let’s begin.

1. Check Your Score And Your Choice Institution:

Check your Jamb score and see whether it can take you to your choice of institution or not. If yes, good… But if no, go to number 3.

One thing is certain when you know the JAMB cut off Mark for your school, this will help you know if you will be qualified for your school post utme examination or not.

2. Check Your Course And Cut Off:

After confirming that you have crossed your school’s general cut off mark, the next step is to see whether you can be admitted with your score.

This is the first thing you are required to know. It will help you know if you are qualified for admission in your school of choice or not. Institutions cut-off mark is in two categories;

(a) The general cut-off mark: the least JAMB score you are required to obtain before you are qualified for admission into the institution.

(b) the departmental cut-off mark: This is the least score you are expected to obtain before your can qualify to be admitted into the course or department you applied for. Usually, most schools announce their admission cut-off marks when announcing their admission screening exercise. If you wait till that time, it may be late. This is because you need to have an idea about the cut-off mark to be able to know if you are to change your course or institution before it closes. So what you need to do is to check out the school’s previous cut-off marks and the determine if you stand a chance or you need to go for change of course and institution.

3. Consider Whether To Change School Or Course:

If your score is not enough for your first choice school, then consider getting a change of institution form.

If your JAMB score is not enough to secure you admission into the course or institution you applied to study, then you will need to do a change of course or institution. In changing your course and institution, two things you should bear in mind are;

a: The course you want to change to must be a course that is in line with your UTME subject combination. For instance don’t change to a course like Biochemistry when your UTME subject combination is English, Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics . This will not work because to study Biochemistry, you need Biology as one of the UTME subjects.

b: Ensure that the institution you are changing to can accept your UTME score and offers the course you want to change to.

Once you have confirmed the above information, you can now proceed to apply for change of course or institution. The detailed information concerning JAMB change of course and institution is contained on this link: JAMB Change Of Course And Institution – When And How To Apply For It click on the link to read up the procedure in case you need to change your course, institution or both.

4. Be Patient:

After Jamb, there usually this zeal to go to school. And you are like, “my school should release admission list na”. Calm down so that your blood pressure doesn’t rise above normal.

5. Enjoy Yourself:

I know that so many aspirants will be on fast until their names are in the admission list. This is not necessary.

You are not the one to admit yourself. Therefore, “leave trash for lawma”. If you have done the necessary things, then forget that you wrote Jamb and continue with your life.

6. Learn A Skill:

Jamb releases first batch admission status around September. You don’t have to waste time. Develop yourself.
