Necessary Requirements for Admission Screening

Like you already know, the screening as stipulated by JAMB will involve the verification of your documents and a physical examination of the candidates.

Before you move on to the main purpose of this article, take a little time to read about the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) below.

About the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board

For the sake of clarity and emphasis, I would like to present them as bullet points.

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 a 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.

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.

Concerning the combination of results, candidates can combine results even if it is from different examination bodies e.g WAEC and NECO. However, your institution may not allow you to combine NABTEB results with WAEC or NECO results.

2. Check the Subjects Combination 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 candidates must credit before he/she qualifies for admission in that particular course. To determine if you possess the relevant subjects for your course of study, follow the steps below;

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. If you do not have this document, click here to get yours
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 formally for the screening exercise. Do not put on anything that will 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.
