1. Wrong Subject Combination:
This mistake is common among JAMB
candidates. When applying for JAMB, you
should always use JAMB brochure in order to know your subject combination. Wrong
subject combination will cost you your
admission into your course.
Once again, Make sure you make use of brochure before computing your subject combination.
2. Wrong O’level grade:
Am I going to call this a mistake or a way of
outsmarting JAMB and the University?
Anyways, some candidates make such mistake.
Make sure you are careful when computing
your grades, because it can cost you a whole year.
3. Not being informed:
This is another issue that is bothering me. As a student seeking for admission, you ought to be glued to educational site like this blog ( for admission tipz) or myschool.ng (for JAMB and
University update). I heard of a case about a
candidate that choose IbadanPoly last year,
but didn’t participated in the screening
because he was not aware that the screening form was on sale. Make sure you are always up to date with JAMB news and the University/Polytechnics you choose.
4. Wrong spelling of name:
Although, this can be corrected but why waste money when you can carefully compute your correct name on your JAMB form. Also, not only wrong spelling but the order at which your name is arranged, it should be in this
format- Surname Firstname Othername.
5. Inconsistent age in your document :
Age is very important during admission
processing, it can cost you your admission. If there are inconsistent age in your document, then your admission into a university might be terminated. For example, on your WAEC certificate, you are 16 years old while on your JAMB form, your are 18 years old, this give the school every reason to terminate your admission into the university.
