The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has announced that students will no longer be able to secure admission into higher institutions while awaiting their O’level results.
JAMB said this was part of its restructuring in preparation for the 2017 UTME higher institution examination.
This means candidates must sit and obtain the results of either West African Examination Council school examination, WAEC, or National Examination Council, NECO, before admission.
The board said this will keep candidates from taking the slots they do not qualify for.
JAMB also introduced a fourth choice of school, but said candidates can apply to only one government-owned university.
