Admission Eligibility Checker For 2024 UTME/DE Candidates


Won’t it interest you if you can know if you’re qualified for a university, polytechnic, or college of education and the course you’re proposing even before you go for UTME or DE registration?

Definitely YES, you’ll love it.

Knowing this position after the registration will as well give you confidence that you’re moving in the right direction. And if you've messed up, you can rectify things before it’s too late.

Some candidates are thrown into confusion with a million blogs sharing different fabricated info. There you read one thing and here you got another.

A candidate doesn’t know which to believe.
JAMB has in most cases recommended you study her official brochure to avoid an error. That’s why I wrote How to Study JAMB Brochure to Avoid Errors too.

However, studying the brochure is technically difficult for the majority of admission seekers. Some can’t read to details. This is why very many candidates just cover the general entry requirements without the look at what each institution may demand differently under the heading Remarks/Waiver Considerations.

I have personally prepared a JAMB mini brochure to guide you on more than a hundred courses, their UTME subjects combination, and SSCE subject requirements.

The unavailability of paperback brochures again is another setback to studying brochures. No more papers and where CD ROMs are provided, no computers to read and study them for average poor Nigerian families.

So what’s the final, easiest, and cost-free solution to this problem?

JAMB Gives Online Access to Check Your Eligibility for Institutions and Their Courses

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board had devised another mechanism to let individual students check if he or she is qualified for a course/institution before going for registration at any CBT Centre. And where you don't know why you're not or yet to be offered a space, you must use this medium to find out why. After all, those CBT centres will not help you study the brochure before they fill you in.

If you’ve already completed the registration before you find this post, you can still check if you’ve done things right.

And if you didn’t, no worry! JAMB's change of institutions and courses will be opened as soon as your JAMB result is out. You can then proceed to any café or CBT to do the changes appropriately.

Found Out After UTME Registration But Before Exams Schedule?

If you find this out before going to register your UTME or DE, I suggest you consider changing your UTME subjects combination if the exam has not been scheduled (if you're affected by the wrong UTME subjects). You can still return to CBT and make the corrections. Consider reading this post for more options to handle wrong UTME subject combinations.

Found out After UTME/DE registration and Exam are Done?

Wait for the change of Institution/Course exercise to open. Then, change to another course you’re qualified for in the school or change the school and/or course entirely.
