I want to begin this article by saying a BIG CONGRATS to all my people who made it in the recently-released UNN primary admission list. Many have called to say “thank you” for the diverse help and moral support they received from MY UNN DREAMS and the SureSuccess Project during the days of admission struggle. I want to thank you all for thanking me but don’t ever forget that the Almighty God is the One who deserves your greatest thanks. Yes, because He is the giver of success. Don’t fail to show your profound gratitude to Him.
For those who scored above the stipulated school cut-off mark but are yet to be admitted, just know that it is not over till the current UNN admission window is closed. Merit or primary admission is over but a few more opportunities are still available: shopping, staff request, etc. More will still be admitted through those windows. So don’t just sit passively and wait or hope to see your name in the 2nd or 3rd batch supplementary admission lists (it MAY not be there). Buy your supplementary form any time between now and Monday, 10th September and fill it wisely. Some have called to ask whether they can buy more than one form to boost their admission chances. Please note that you can’t and it is not even advisable.
If you scored above the stipulated school cut-off mark and were not offered admission in the primary list, you can get in touch with a UNN staff if you are very closely related to one. See if you can get in through his/her official admission quota or staff request.
UNN has a carrying capacity of well over 7000. Only about 3,965 candidates have been admitted so far. You can still strive to fill in the remaining spaces.
If you are hoping to shop and be admitted through supplementary application, please be very careful. Bear in mind that the UNN supplementary admission (gained through application for Advertized Courses) is not given on first-come-first-serve basis. It is not the first set of candidates to fill the form that gets admitted. There are several factors that determine whether or not you will be admitted despite the N10, 000 you paid. So don’t rush it. Take your time to do your homework well so you don’t engage in a futile venture:
- Don’t bother applying if you did not score up to 180 in your UNN post UTME screening. (Please note that the 180 here is only your post UTME score. Your average must be up to 200 also).
- Don’t apply for a course you don’t have the right JAMB UTME subject combination for.
- Don’t apply for a course with very low shortfall except you think your average score is high enough to guarantee your being admitted. Click here to view the advertized courses and their shortfalls.
- Don’t apply for a course you don’t have the minimum entry requirement for. This point has to do with your O’level subjects/qualification.
A lot of don’ts to consider before filling the supplementary form for advertised courses. Do your best to avoid the pitfalls. I will be here to address whatever issues you may be having and to answer your questions. So you can use the comment section below to interact with me. Remember that there are a host of other aspirants in your shoes and everyone of them is currently strategizing for Admission Success. You can afford to be left out.
Remember that application for advertised courses commenced on Friday, 20 September and would close on Friday 04 October, 2019.
……Do what you need to do fast….
Best wishes from yours sincerely, HD.
