Reasons Why These Universities are Less Competitive

Below are some possible reasons why we considered these Universities less competitive in Nigeria

1. They are not widely preferred in Nigeria

One fundamental reason these Universities are less competitive is that a majority of students that make them the first choice when registering for JAMB and making a choice of institution.

As a result, students who end up in their universities are just a few who could not gain admission into their most preferred top universities.

2. The schools record a relatively few numbers of aspirants yearly as compared to others

Another contributing factor that makes the above-mentioned Universities less competitive is that they have less number of aspirants.

Thus, the university is even looking for more students. One of the mistakes many students make is to apply for admission to those top universities in Nigeria and end up not getting admitted.

Many students prefer to apply for admission in very competitive schools like UNN, UI, UNILAG or OAU. But the truth is that if you are not very sound academically, then you can’t gain admission into those schools because of the high demand and standard for JAMB Score.

So, if you are not good enough, why don’t you apply for a school that will give you admission easily in any of these universities that are less competitive.

3. Their departmental cutup marks are low

Another reason why it is easier to gain admission into the schools I just mentioned is because their cutoff marks are very low. Thus, students with low cutoff can still gain admission via the university’s merit list.
