1. Screening of candidates shall be for ONLY candidates recommended for admissions.

2. No written examination to be conducted.

3. Verification of Course Requirements (O’ levels or A’ levels).

4. Verification of valid JAMB results by checking:
i. Online Result Slip
ii. Printout
Provisional Admission Letter
iv. Photo Album
v. Checklist
vi. Biometrics

5. Institutions are free to source from other Course(s) to compensate for SHORTFALL in any of the criteria.

The list of candidates that have scored above the minimum cut-off mark, and are NOT admitted may be forwarded to other institutions that need them for consideration. Especially their Second (2nd) Choice institutions of preferences.
