When applying for JAMB, candidates are usually required to select your first choice institution as well as your second choice institution.
This helps to increase the chances that each candidate has to be offered admission either by the first choice or second choice institution.
Earlier on, Jamb ruled out the Selection of Two Public Universities as both first and second (2nd) choice during UTME registrations due to the reason that most universities or institutions don’t accept Second choice candidates that apply to them.
It is now a good news that JAMB has enabled candidates to Select two Universities as First and Second Choice. This means that candidates can now apply for State Universities or Federal Universities that Accepts Second Choice Candidates as second choice Institutions during registration. See Details Here.
So, all you basically need to do is select the school you want to use as your second choice and off you go. Well, it’s Actually not that easy. Because of the fact that not all schools accept 2nd choice, you will basically need to research for the list of schools that accept second choice so you can use it during your JAMB registration.
We have made it easy for you; we have checked all the universities and polytechnics and narrowed them down to only those that accept second choice.
Which Universities Can be Selected as Second Choice? Though JAMB has made it possible for candidates to select Universities as 2nd choice, the List of universities that can be used as Second Choice is limited to the ones released by JAMB.
