  • More Prefer Institution: This is the second choice of degree awarding institution. This came as a result of outcry jamb received from parents and candidates during 2015 institution placement exercise when of jamb sent candidates to schools different from the ones they filled during jamb registration. To avoid such occurrences again, jamb now introduced this more prefer institution. If you cannot secure an admission in your most prefer school, jamb can send you to your prefer institution.
