In this post, I will be answering the question; “Does FUTO accept second choice candidates for admission?“. If you are an aspirant of the prestigious Federal University of Technology Owerri (Popularly known as FUTO), i enjoin you to read this short post and share with other aspirants of the university because, this might save someone from making a mistake that will jeopardize his/her chances of gaining admission this year.
First, i must confess that it is actually good that you are searching to know whether FUTO accepts people that make them second choice in JAMB. Many aspirants don’t do this before making their choices of institutions, and i have discovered recently that it is one of the reasons why many students don’t gain admission in Nigeria.
For instance, about 20% of admission seekers in Nigeria last year did not gain admission into any institution because they didn’t ask questions before making their choices of schools to attend.
Conversely, if you really want to gain admission into any institution in Nigeria, you have to be sure that the institution you wish to attend accepts second choice candidates before going ahead to choose that institution in JAMB. Quickly, lets move to the topic of today.
Does FUTO accept second choice candidates for admission?
No! The Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO) does not offer admission to people that make them a second choice in JAMB. To prove this, the management of FUTO has earlier made it known to the general public that admission into the various departments of the university is open to only aspirants that made the first choice.
Thus, the university will not offer admission to candidates that made them second choice. If you applied for admission into FUTO this year, and you also made the university your second choice, you are apparently wasting your time.
Nonetheless, there is actually a solution for those that still want to correct the mistake. JAMB understands that aspirants are likely to make mistakes in their courses and choices of institution and that is why there is the JAMB CHANGE OF COURSE AND INSTITUTION FORM.
With this form, you can correct whatever mistake you made in your courses and choices of institution. So it is actually an opportunity for those that still want to change FUTO from their second choice to their first choice of institution.
Why futo does not give admission to second choice candidates
As you already know FUTO is one of the best Federal university of science and technology in Nigeria. Because of this, the university is densely populated and more students keeps seeking to gain admission into the university.
Conversely, the policy of admitting only aspirants that made FUTO their first choice is actually to reduce the huge number of students seeking to gain admission into the university every year. Accordingly, it will help the university to fish out the best students out of the hundreds that apply for admission every year.
These are the two reasons why the Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO) accepts only candidates that made them first choice in JAMB.
- Most popular universities in Nigeria
- How to prepare and pass Post UTME screening
- Why indirect rule failed in Eastern Nigeria
- UNIBEN departmental cutoff marks for all courses
By way of conclusion, i must let you know that there is actually a deadline or expiration date for JAMB change of course and institution form. So, those that intend to change FUTO from their second choice should make sure they apply for the form as soon as possible.
Hope this short post was able to answer the question here? In a recap, i just explained that the Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO) does not accept second choice candidates for admission. Thus, anyone that made the university a second choice this year is apparently wasting his/her time. This is where I will stop for today.
