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 institution  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 don’t have more space to admit second choice students.
