What To Do While You WaitFor University Admission.


The days that that lie between June to October
are tense times for everyone involved in the
University admission processes in Nigeria.
University aspirants (hopefuls) all over the
country are waiting to hear from their top
school of choices.
While the Universities, Polytechnics and
Colleges are busy flipping through files and
making the final decisions on whom to admit,
Wilfred (the first student consultant in
Nigeria) has gone ahead to figure out what
the aspirants are expected to be doing. The
“don’ts” not left behind!
A University admission officer in one of the
popular campus in Nigeria, offers few tips to
keep you from going nuts and taking others
with you:
Monitor events in your school:
Myschoolcomm spent big bucks developing
Web technology that keeps you informed
about what’s missing, when the exam comes up,
result release, and when your admission status
is published. Use it. See http://
support/ .
Stay in touch: Emphasize your continuing
interest in the school and be as specific as
possible about why you are interested in a
particular school.
This might include highlighting which
academic and extracurricular programs are
most appealing to you, and why you believe
the institution is a good match for you.
Continued interest, along with strong academic
performance, are two key factors colleges are
looking for from you at this stage, and it
may help with the admissions decision.
Make necessary contacts: If you have
friends, families, or anything; use them. We
all know how Nigeria is, so seeking little
support in terms of favour from such people
may be a plus for you. Don’t forget to call on
God when you need him.
Take every chance you see: While you wait,
be smart. If you see any opportunity from
other schools, take it. Don’t be lazy, help your
parents in their business or chores at home.
That will make them to care for you when you
eventually get into school.
Get your documents ready: It is expected that
you have passed one or more of NECO, WAEC
or NABTEB as s proof that you successfully
passed the number 3, of the 6-3-3-4 education
system in Nigeria. Your school of choice will
demand for the O’level result/certificate
immediately they admit you. They will need
to see your Original JAMB result slip, Local
Government/State of Origin Certificate, Birth
card/Age declaration/Birth Certificate, etc.
Get these documents and keep them handy to
avoid delays when you are eventually called
up by your choice school. Original JAMB
Result slip is obtainable from here.
Stay informed when your school is selling
supplementary admission forms:
Immediately after merit admission is
supplementary. During supplementary
admission application, candidates can apply
for courses they did not originally choose in a
particular school.
