JAMB 2017 Registration: 2nd Choice Federal/State Universities You Can Choose

We have confirmed that 2017 UTME candidates can actually choose two public universities as 1st and 2nd choices. Already, many 2017 UTME candidates that have registered were allowed to choose public universities as 1st and 2nd choices.

This is contrary to the directive given by JAMB that candidates will not be allowed to choose two public universities during JAMB registration.

So JAMB only advised candidates to choose one public university and a private university or polytechnic as 2nd choice to increase their chances of gaining admission; not necessarily because it is not possible to choose to public universities as 1st and 2nd choices.

The reason JAMB advised candidates to do that is because from observations, most candidates who choose public universities as 2nd choice end up not getting a chance of being admitted into such universities due to the fact that these universities they selected as 2nd choice are usually over subscribed or over competitive (that means there are much candidates applying to study in such universities).

So the bottom line is this, candidates who wish to choose  a public university 2nd choice are to ensure they choose a public university that is less competitive. This is because it will not make any sense if you choose universities like the ABU, UNILAG, OAU and UNN, UNIBEN as 2nd choice when in actual sense they cannot even admit up to half of the candidates that will choose them as 1st choice.

We have done our research and have come up with the list of universities you can choose as 2nd choice in your 2017 JAMB UTME registration. According to JAMB, these universities are less competitive and are likely going to consider you for admission when you choose them as 2nd choice.

The list contains Federal, State and Private universities that are less competitive. So if you wish to pick a public university as a 2nd choice, please ensure it is one of the ones on this list or any other one you know that is less competitive.

You can pick any one of them as your 2nd choice based on your preferences.
