Vital Information for All UTME Admission Seekers
Please, if in the course of uploading your O/Level results to JAMB’s website you uploaded any subject having any grade lesser than C, this information is for you and it is very important you do what you will be told now to do lest you want to lose your chances of being offered admission. I was in a discussion with an officer in charge of loading admission statuses to CAPS, she said to me in our discussion about admission processes and I quote:
“so many candidates who have been considered for admission by the school they applied to will end up losing their admission offer based on their misunderstanding of JAMB’s instruction on the uploading of their O/Level results; JAMB requires them to upload only the subjects they passed at the minimum of the grade C, but many just went ahead to upload all their results, including the ones they have grades lesser than C in. Any uploaded result having any subject with a grade lesser than C will not be seen by the admission officers as JAMB has programmed the software to not load any uploaded result having any grade lesser than a C.”
Trust me, I asked her the question you could be thinking of right now, and the question is, would the admission officer not see the candidate’s full results in the result printout scanned and uploaded to the site? She answered the question shaking her head! “No, we don’t see the scanned and uploaded papers, we only see the results inputted in the boxes provided on the site.”
This is what makes this information vital to all admission seekers as many applicants when they were trying to make sure they uploaded all their subjects have uploaded subjects in which they didn’t have at least a C, to go against JAMB’s instruction to them on uploading only the subjects they passed at credit level. So, if you uploaded any grade lesser than a C to JAMB’s website, please go back to the CBT center and make amends. If you do not need the subject in your 5 required subjects core to the course you have applied to, please go and remove it! It won’t let your results visible to the admission officer who will upload your admission status, hence you will be perceived as not qualified for the admission offer. But if you need the subject in the 5 required subjects core to the course you have applied to, you will have to take some chances here. You will still have to go and change the grade you have in such subject to a C and wait for what happens when you are offered admission and you are asked to undergo the credentials screening in your school. The school could change your admission offer to another department that does not necessarily require such subject. What matters is gaining the admission first. When you have been offered admission, you can change to another course if your papers don’t qualify you for the course you are initially offered admission to. Please act on this information fast. Goodluck.
