FOUR (4) COMMON REASONS WHY YOUR NAME IS NOT ON THE MERIT ADMISSION LIST THOUGH YOU HAVE HIGH JAMB/POST-UTME SCORE



Many universities have released their merit admission list, and many candidates have asking for reasons why their names are not among those on the merit admission list of their universities of choice...


There are so many factors which can make a candidate's name not to be on the merit admission list of his/her school of choice. 

Now, let us take a good look just at only four (4) of these factors which are common.

1) NOT MEETING UP WITH YOUR DEPARTMENTAL CUTOFF MARK
Not all universities make the cutoff marks for their various departments known to the public. All universities reveal their general cutoff mark. Owing to this, a candidate may have done very well in both JAMB and post-UTME examination and yet did not meet up with the specific cutoff for the department opted for.

Some candidates sometimes may be judging with the assumed cutoff marks they saw online or from previous years, but the department in question may have increased the cutoff mark without informing the public.

2) INCORRECT OR INCOMPLETE SUBJECT COMBINATION
This is a very important factor which most candidates do not take into consideration. There is no how a candidate would be admitted into a department if his/her O'level and JAMB subject combination does not match those required for particular department opted for. 

You won't be admitted to study a science course when the subjects you have on you O'level result and JAMB are those of art courses. You won't address a letter to Satan and expect God to receive it, that's the simplest analogy I can use to explain this to you. Remedy to this incompatibility can be done if the school offer supplementary admission during which the candidate in question will then apply for the apt course commensurate with the O'level and JAMB subject combination.

3) LOSS OF ACCREDITATION BY A DEPARTMENT
A university may have lost accreditation for a particular which happened to be that which a candidate entered. If this is the case, such university may only admit few/limited number of students or may even not admit at all; hence may affect the chance of a candidate getting admission into the department.

4) NOT MAKING THE 45% MERIT QUOTA
In accordance with the admission policy, only 45% of the total number of candidates to be giving admission into any school will be on the merit admission list. So, not all the candidates who qualified that might fall within the stipulated 45% quota; hence their names not appearing on the merit admission list.

Such candidates may see their names on the subsequent admission list as the case may be.

Hope that you have seen common reasons a candidate's name may not be seen on merit admission list of his school of choice.
