Do not make mistakes other innocent students do get into, making the wrong universities as your second choice will only get you sitting at home for another year.

Many students even ask questions like: does UNIBEN accept second choice?, Does kasu Accept second choice?, Does kwasu accept second choice? Does UNILORIN Accept second choice, does OOU Accept second choice? Does kasu Accept second choice? Does imo state University Accept second choice? Does Polytechnics Accept second choice? Does fuoye Accept second?, Does uniuyo Accept second choice?, Does oau, unimaid, UNICAL, aksu, uniport , futo Accept second choice and many more I can’t mention right here but will be listed below.

The answer to all of this will shock you because the unexpected might be Among. Although Private Universities can also be considered for second choice only if you can bear the fees. However, your admission is sure choosing a private University as second choice.

Universities will not accept second choice candidates even if they got the highest score in the utme and post utme. Reason are;

  • It is believed you already have a better university chosen over them as first choice
  • You can’t stand on the fence, it’s either you’re in for them or you’re out
  • No university/polytechnic will ever want to be an option except few that will consider that based on the little population they have
  • No more available space to admit second choice candidates, because after admitting both utme, jupeb, ijmb, DE and other students, they usually no more space to admit second choice students.
