Aggregate score

In regards to shopping, it is important to thoroughly cross-check the departmental cutoff mark of the department you’re planning to shop in before making a final decision.

If your aggregate score is not up to that departmental cutoff mark, it is advisable to choose the department that matches your aggregate score in order to secure admission into the shopping list.

For instance,if your average score is 246 and the departmental cutoff mark is 250, due to a difference of four marks, you shop into that department, thinking your name will appear on the second admissions list. Your name may not appear except by the grace of God, which is very rare!.

Low average score

Wrong JAMB combination subjects

Know the course you’re applying for

However, being too desperate could also contribute to shopping in a department you may despise in the long run. This always makes many students not be academically active again towards their studies in subsequent years at the school.

Hence, in some cases, the student may apply for a change of course or apply for another JAMB or drop out of school entirely.

Is it important to shop

For those who didn’t make it into merit, especially those with a high aggregate score that is not up to the departmental cutoff of their dream department or who have a long or short leg, it is advisable to shop into a different department that is not your initial course. This will help you have more chances of gaining admission.
