About the University of Abuja (UNIABUJA)
University of Abuja (Popularly known as UNIABUJA) is located at the central city of Nigeria. Because of this, the University is respected and admired by many Nigerians. UNIABUJA was established in January 1st, 1988 as a dual-mode university with the mandate to run conventional and distance learning programmes.
Nonetheless, academic activities in the school began in 1990. Since then, UNIABUJA has produced many great alumni. Gaining admission into UNIABUJA is apparently not easy too. Many students see the university as a “must-go“. Thus, the university keeps getting more competitive every year.
Does UNIABUJA accept people that make them second choice
No! The University of Abuja does not accept second choice candidates for admission. In other words, the university does not offer admission to candidates that make them a second choice in JAMB.
To corroborate this proposition, the management of the prestigious UNIABUJA has stated that admission into the different faculties of the school is only open to students who made them a first choice.
So, if you made UNIABUJA your second choice, and you are hoping of gaining admission into the university this year, the university has stated that only candidates who made them first choice will be offered admission.
Nevertheless, you don’t need to panic too much because, there is actually a solution for you. JAMB understands that candidates might make such mistakes during registration and that is why there is the JAMB CHANGE OF COURSE AND INSTITUTION FORM. With this form, you will be able to make corrections to your courses or institutions.
So, if you really want to change UNIABUJA from your second choice to first choice, or you want to totally change the school, make sure you purchase jamb change of course and institution form as early as possible. Hope that helps?
Why UNIABUJA offer admission to people that make them second choice
Recently, i found out that the reason why UNIABUJA does not accept candidates that make them second choice is because, they constantly have a higher number of admission seekers than some other universities in Nigeria.
Thus, by making the policy that only candidates who made them first choice can apply for admission, the university is actually reducing the number of students that will apply for admission. Accordingly, that will help the university to pick out only the best students out of the thousands of students applying to gain admission into the school.
Note that there is usually a deadline or expiration date for this form. So make sure you apply for the JAMB change of course and institution form as soon as you can; else you will not be able to correct it again.
Okay! This is where I am going to end. I believe this post has answered the question; “does UNIABUJA accept second choice candidates for admission?”. In a recap, i just said that the University of Abuja does not offer admission to candidates that make them second choice. Nonetheless, those who have already made the mistake can still correct it by applying for JAMB change of course and institution form as soon as possible.
