Admission Merit, Catchment Areas and Educationally Less Developed States: Meaning and Differences

DIFFERENCES AMONG MERIT, CATCHMENT AREAS AND EDUCATIONALLY LESS DEVELOPED STATES AND HOW THEY AFFECT YOUR ADMISSION In short, you're on this page to know the meanings of Merit, Catchment areas and Educationally Less Developed States - all having to do with allocation of admission spaces for prospective candidates.

If you’ve been seeking admission for some years now, you could have come across all these terms. Let me show you what they are.

What to Do if Another/a Strange School Gives You Admission on JAMB CAPS

It is common lately that candidates seeking admission are being offered ones into different schools other than the ones chosen in UTME. In other words, when applicants check their admission status, they see a completely different school other than the one chosen in JAMB or the one they are expecting an admission from.

A related condition is when you actually chose a school but you prefer admission from another one. For example, you chose a university and a polytechnic in JAMB. You might have actually attempted the two schools’ post-UTMEs.

However, you prefer admission from the university instead of the polytechnic and vice versa.  You know, with all performance in your university’s post UTME that the school should give you admission but unfortunately, you got an offer from the polytechnic you prefer least or a private institution for that matter.

Then, what should you do in this situation?
