Unfortunately, many JAMBites still choose these universities that denies 2nd choice candidates’ admission. In my own opinion, that’s a waste of time and effort which you should avoid at all cost.

There are very few Nigerian federal and state universities that still accept second choice candidates in JAMB UTME for admission though, and that’s what this article seeks to show you presently.

That a university accept second choice candidates from JAMB UTME doesn’t mean that its inferior to the ones that don’t accept 2nd choice candidates. On the contrary, it means that these universities want to give everyone equall chance of participation and being selected.

Note: Never make the mistake of using two federal universities as your first and second choice as no two federal universities can go as first and second options. Doing this automatically nullifies your second choice, hence, limiting your chances of gaining admission.

Rather, its expected that you choose one federal university as your first choice and one state university as your second choice.
