These Are The Reasons Why You Might Be Denied Admission Despite Your High JAMB Score

JAMB CAPS have been admitting a lot of candidates offered admission into their preferred institution and their chosen courses. But a lot of candidates have been wondering how come their names are not on the merit admission list of the schools of choice despite having high JAMB scores and even meeting POST UTME threshold mark.

There are reasons that may cause a candidate name to be omitted from the merit or first batch admission list. Let's check out the 3 common reasons why you may not be admitted to CAPS portal.

You did not meet the departmental threshold mark

Some schools make their departmental threshold marks known while some other schools don't. Each course of study in any institution usually has its specific threshold mark. You have a high JAMB score which also qualified you to participate in your preferred institution POST UTME screening does not automatically mean that you are qualified for admission in that course.

You have to equally meet the required UTME and POST UTME threshold mark for that course. Sometimes if the candidates that applied for a particular course in a school happens to do very well in the screening exercise, the school may have no choice than to increase the initial threshold mark it proposed for that course without the knowledge of the candidates.

Incomplete or wrong subjects combination

Many candidates do not consider this important factor before choosing a course of study. If your UTME and O level result do not match the ones required for the particular course you intend to study, there is no way you will be admitted in that course. Such candidates may be considered for admission later if their preferred institution advertise supplementary admission and they are able to apply for a course that matches their subject combination.

Your name didn't make the 45% merit list

According to the admission policy, just 45% percent of the total number of candidates to be admitted to any school is to be admitted based on merit. The truth is that not every qualified candidate for admission will be among this 45% that will be considered for admission based on merit regardless of your JAMB or POST UTME score. If you did not make the merit admission list, I will advise you get the supplementary admission of your preferred institution once it is advertised. However, in a case where the admission list is not announced, the best you can do is to hope and pray that more batches will be released with your name among.
