Last week the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), announced a new policy governing what happens whenever you are not allowed to participate in post UTME of your school of choice because you do not meet the cutoff mark set by the school.
If you meet the minimum cutoff mark set by JAMB (180) but you are rejected by your university of 1st choice, JAMB will reassign you to another school for which you meet their admissions criteria.
For example many students with Jamb scores of 180 were rejected by unilag because their cutoff was set much higher.
We spoke to a jamb official to get their position on this issue and were told this action was taken in the best interest of candidates. He went on to say that the action will reduce the number of candidate who fail to get admission to higher institution since in a typical year many schools end up with unfilled seats while others have more students than they can accommodate. This policy change will result in fewer students waiting for an extra year.
When asked what option a student has if he or she isn't willing or able to attend the school select for them by JAMB, the official said the student will have to go to one of their other choices or wait for next year.
We at Jambite feel that although there are many flaws with the new policy, there are certain people that will gain an advantage from it. It is in your best interest to study your specific situation.
If you find yourself reassigned to another school, do not reject it without giving it proper consideration. Check to see if the school is one you can afford and offers the courses you want. Even if you don't like the school, we recommend that you still take the post utme examination. You never know how things will turn out with your other schools so don't give up your position.
On the other hand, if you know you will never attend the school you have been assigned to, then promptly give up the position so that others in need can have it.
Yeah, somehow this is benefiting

they can make this better by making change of institution more flexible and also give candidates list of optional school so they can make their own choice

This ain't right at all from jamb, if the posting to private institutions isn't involved then it would have made sense but how can they post one to a private institution when we can't afford it
