Here Is 5 Important Things To Do If You Were Denied Admission In 2017
Like I always say, the University Admission is the dream of every high school leaver.
“I want to gain admission immediately I leave high/secondary school“. This is the
confession of an average University aspirant.
Sad enough, not all of them actually get admitted immediately. There are so many
persons who were refused Jamb
admission for more than 3 times.
If you have satisfied the basic admission requirements and have at least a 60% average, you could have been refused admission because of the high volume of
applications received for the program and/or university you selected.
In other words, the competition for places in that department was such that you did not qualify for admission.
It doesn’t matter if this is your second or third time of applying for admission. What matters is that you are not giving up.
Those who were admitted before you are not necessarily better than you. You can make it if you really mean it.
1. Stay Calm And Don’t Loose Hope:

to change the way you see things. Have the mentality, “No matter what, I will definitely be admitted next year”.

Something may have happened in the exam hall.
There is certainly something you have to tell yourself about it.
Remember, telling yourself the truth is honesty while telling others is integrity.
You may not want to tell yourself or parents what really happened.
But, tell yourself the truth. If you don’t tell yourself the truth now, you will be refused admission again as a result of the lie you keep telling yourself.
3. Build Yourself:
Now, it is time to build yourself. You may be asking, what should I build in myself? Nice question. You need to build your mental capacity so as to be able to face
the admission challenge next year.
The truth of the matter is that, the
admission process is always going to be more competitive. You need to constantly update and build yourself so as to be able to stand in the days of judgement.
Yesterday’s information cannot help you to solve tomorrow’s challenges.
