Every year there is always this struggle to get into the higher institution of your choice! Honestly this is really becoming really annoying! First hurdle is the Joint Admission And Matriculation Board (JAMB), JAMB has jammed some people more than 5 times and still they have not been able to scale through, which is the first hurdle you need to scale through. Before now, there was always the cases of not seeing your result until the introduction of computer based mode of writing JAMB in 2016, which has brought about speedy recovery of JAMB results though this is a welcome development but has not quite eliminated the perennial JAMB wahala (problem), Secondly hurdle is passing the Post UME, while the third is gaining the actual admission into your school of choice.
All these are normal processes every student goes through in order to gain admission into the university except you intend gaining admission into universities that do not require JAMB.
