What Is The Difference Between Jamb Admission And School Admission

To answer it simply, there is no difference.
Look at how the admission processes are been done.

Stage 1. People will register for Jamb during Jamb registration and all they details will be stored on Jamb website concerning the school and course they chose during registration .

Stage 2. When the time for Postume arrives, Jamb will then compile the names of those that applied in each school and send them to each of the Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education involved.

Stage 3. Each school will then use those names and conduct postutme or screening as the case may be.

Stage 4. Schools will now compile the names of those that perform well in they screening which they have considered for admission or have given admission and send it to Jamb.

Last Stage. Jamb will now upload those names sent to them by the school on they portal so that candidates can be able to print they admission letter.

Those are the steps involved in given admission which in essence means that all admission that was uploaded on Jamb website came from the school in question.

Jamb doesn’t give admission, but rather send names to school for admission.

Hope you are now clear on your doubts, do you still have more question?  Comment it below and I will try and respond as soon as I can.

    • Hello Johnson, that’s the one jamb puts it. But I think you were admitted in your first choice institution then you don’t need to do a change of institution. But if you were offered admission in your second choice, then you need to do a change of institution

    • If your admission is showing instead of Unijos then that’s the one jamb captured, wait until Ansu offers you admission on they portal before you go and do change of institution

    • Hello Umelo. Yes You can always jump back to any of the question you have already answered and change the answer or choose another option. But if you have submitted, You can not Change anything Again.

  20. So you mean the more you secure a jamb admission- you could then necessary get admission by candidate’s preferred school of choice…you know there re some people who failed to secure admission by the university they choose despite being admitted by jamb..???

    • If school did not consider one for admission, Jamb will not upload the Person’s Admission. Though Sometimes i think there use to be a mistake in either of they part but its very rare.

    • Hello Johnson, Where you admitted on the school website initially, Pls reply.

  21. My questions here’s:-
    1- Is there any possibility of securing admission- for a candidate who got admitted in jamb portal but being denied by candidate’s preferred school of choice…
    2- Or consequentely being denied by jamb but possibly fortunate to be admitted by candidate’s preferred school of choice…??
    3- Or that admission by candidate’s preferred school of choice is all that will finally matters..??
