The web site’s article has further gone on to say that with just the right kind of help, anyone can easily get admission into some of the best Universities in Nigeria. A major reason that has led many promising students to lose admission has been the wrong UTME combination. There have been many with really good post UTME scores who have not been given admission just because they have the wrong JAMB subject combination.
