Necessary Requirements For A Successful Admission Screening.
1. Get Your O-level Results Ready: Candidates are expected to present copies of their O-level Certificates or Statement of Results obtained in not more than two sittings.
Another thing you should know is that if it is up to four years you sat for your O-level examination, your institution will likely require you to present the Original Certificate of the O-level examination instead of statement of results because it is expected that your Original Certificate should be ready after four years.
Therefore, if you sat for your O-level examination four years ago and beyond, it is advisable to go get your O-level Certificate(s) ready before the screening exercise of your institution. For those whose O-level certificates are not yet available, they can present their statement of result. For such candidates, they may need to provide result checking scratch card (NECO, WAEC, NABTEB, as applicable).
For candidates still waiting for the release of their results, you can go for the screening with your O-level registration slip.
2. Determine If You Have the Right Subjects For Your Course of Study: To study your course of study in any institution, you are required to have a minimum of 5 credit passes in the relevant O-level subjects. Many candidates are not sure if their O-level subjects tally with the course they intend to study. Each course of study has specific subjects a candidates must credit before he/she qualifies for admission in that particular course. To determine if you possess the relevant subjects for the course, check the JAMB brochure or download the JAMB app from the online stores.
ii. After the installation, open the app and click on the “JAMB Brochure” button
iii. Click on your Faculty (It is expected that you should know the Faculty your course falls under), this will open a list of courses available in that faculty. If your course is not on the list, go back and click on a related faculty to check for your course of study.
iv. Click on your course of choice and wait for the page to load. Once it loads, scroll down to the section that indicates “O-level Requirements” and read through to determine the subject you must obtain credit passes to qualify for admission in your course of study.
For non-android phones/Computer Systems , Access the online JAMB brochure and follow steps iii – iv as described above.
3. Other documents you need To present: In addition to your O-level results, you are to present other documents which may include;
i. Birth Certificate or Affidavit of Age Declaration
ii. JAMB Original Result Slip.
iii. Screening Registration Slip (for those that registered online)
iv. Local Government of Origin (this can be obtained at your LGA Secretariat)
4. Physical examination: JAMB disclosed that candidates will equally be examined based on appearance to know if they are cultists or "future cultists". That sounds funny. I wonder how you can tell who is a cultist or who would likely be one just by looking at the person's face unless you are a fortune teller or a prophet.
Be that as it may, candidates should ensure they dress formal to the screening exercise. Do not put on any thing that will may make you look irresponsible. If you have tattoos or piercings on your body, make sure they are removed or well covered before appearing for the screening.
