Does ABSU accept second choice candidates? It is truism that Abia State University (ABSU) is one of the best in the eastern part of Nigeria. In fact, if i should make a ranking of the best universities in Nigeria, ABSU must be among the top 20. The university apparently is one of the most popular and sorted universities in Nigeria now. This is why some aspirants of ABSU have been searching the internet, throughout last week, to know whether ABSU actually accepts second choice candidates for admission or not.
If you are also searching for an answer to that question, then you are in the right place. In this post, I will give a very concise and vivid answer to the question. I enjoin you read painstakingly and also share this post to as many ABSU aspirant as possible, because you can save actually save someone from making what might be, his/her biggest mistake of the year.
Meanwhile, before that, I would like to tell you some important things about the prestigious Abia State University (ABSU).
Brief information about Abia State University (ABSU)
ABSU is the indigenous university of Abia State, Nigeria. The university was established in 1981 to ensure a constant growth and development of youths in eastern Nigeria. According to Wikipedia, another reason why the university was established is to expand admissions and to bring professional skills, expertise and modern research facilities close to the city and rural dwellers.
It will also surprise you to know that despite the fact that ABSU is a young university in Nigeria (compared with other schools like UNN), the university is still one of the best currently. In fact, ABSU is one of the most sorted universities in Nigeria currently.
Consequently, it is relatively difficult to gain admission into ABSU today. Usually, aspirants are expected to meet all the university’s requirements and cutoff mark for the session. Below, i will disclose to you whether ABSU accepts candidates that make them second choice in JAMB.
Does ABSU accept second choice candidates?
The answer is yes! Despite the fact that ABSU is relatively difficult to gain admission into, the university accepts candidates that make them second choice in JAMB.
So, whether you are applying for direct entry admission into the university or UTME admission, if you chose ABSU as your second choice, there is every likelihood that you will be given admission.
To further corroborate this, I had a friend who gain admission in 2016 into Abia State University (ABSU) after making the university his second choice.
In fact, when I applied for JAMB in 2017, I made ABSU my second choice of institution in JAMB. Even though I didn’t end of going to the university, I new they would have given me admission if not that UNN, which was my first choice, gave me admission.
What to do if you don’t want ABSU to be your second choice
There is actually no point changing ABSU from your second choice to first choice because the university offers admission to both students that make them first choice and second choice. However, if you don’t want ABSU to be your second choice, you can simply change that with JAMB change of course and institution form.
This form is usually N3-4,000 (three-four thousand naira only). With it, you can simply make ABSU you first choice of institution, thereby making your chances of gaining admission very high. Alternatively, you can totally replace the university with any other university you like.
