It quite apparent that about 69% of students in Nigeria, don't gain admission into the university every year. I have made an assiduous research and have found out that this is as a result of plethora of reasons which are more or less inevitable to some student.

Today, I will be shearing 6 reasons why many students don't gain admission into the university. So, this will serve as an eyeopener and a guild to impending students when seeking for admission in Nigerian universities. Without wasting much time, I will quickly discuss these problems.


REASONS WHY MANY STUDENTS DON'T GAIN ADMISSION INTO THE UNIVERSITY

Below are the various reasons why many Students don't gain admission into the university:
  1. Massive failure in major examinations
  2. Failing to plan
  3. Lesserfair attitude
  4. Lack of information
  5. Examination Malpractice
  6. Lack of fundings

These reasons are discussed below.
  1. Massive failure in major examinations

  2. This is one of the key reasons why many students don't gain admission into the university. For instance, if a student who want to gain admission into Nigerian university through UTME exams, unfortunately perform very poor in the examination, he or she may not gain admission. This is because, performing stupendously in UTME examinations is prerequisite for gaining admission (using JAMB results). 

    Apart from JAMB examination, there are so many other examinations, which students are expected to surmount, before gaining admission into the University. On this note, if any student fails to do very well in major examinations that are prerequisite to gain admission, that student may not be admitted into the university.
  3. Failure to plan

  4. As it is rightly said; "He who fails to plan has plan to fail". In that same way, if you don't plan your admission properly, you are likely to loose it. To plan in this context, is to keep in mind a particular choice of course, institutions (University) and correct subject combinations for that course. 

    Last few years, I had a friend who had to forfeit his admission to the University of Benin because he had a wrong subject combination, which obviously would have been rejected by the university if he had taken it there. 

    Failing to plan has made many students resort to studying in a polytechnic and other kinds of institution, since they apparently cannot study in their choice of university. Failing to plan is another core reason why many students don't gain admission into the University.
  5. Lesser fair attitude

  6. Another reason why may students fail to gain admission into the University, is because they fail to take the whole admission process serious. Many students don't really care about their admission.

    Some times, it is because of the frequent failure they have had in the admission process. However, some students unduly take the whole thing lightly. Because of this, many students have failed to gain admission to the University.
  7. Lack of information

  8. There is no doubt that lack of authentic information, is one of the reasons why many students don't gain admission into the university. In fact, it is one of the key reasons. The truth is that many of the examination bodies and universities in Nigeria, only disseminate news through the internet, and students who don't have access to the internet find it very difficult to get these news. Thus, they are easily dupped by fraudsters.

    More so, it is not just about getting information, but getting the right information. Some years ago, WAEC announced that a particular website which many students had thought was authentic, is actually fake. You never can tell how many students has been denied admission because of that website. So, is it not just about getting information, it is about getting authentic information.
  9. Examination malpractice 

  10. There is a consolidated notion of examination malpractice amongst students of now a days . And this notwithstanding, has been one the reasons why many students don't gain admission into the university. 

    As regards to this, examination bodies in the country has devised new ways to curb this act. In 2017, about 40% of the students who wrote WAEC examination had their results seized. And so, it was one of the reason why many students who intended to study in the university failed to gain admission. Thus, it is right to say that examination malpractice, is one of the cogent reasons why may students don't gain admission into the university.
  11. Lack of fundings

  12. Another reason why many students fail to gain admission into the university is poor funding. Students who don't have enough money to pay acceptance fees or school fees for themselves, are felt with no other choice, than to forfeit their admission, or to apply for other kinds of higher institution, other than the university.

    For this reason, it is advised that any student who wants to gain admission into the university, should apply for an affordable course and university, so as to be able to pay for school fee and other miscellaneous 
From the above enumerated reasons why many students don't gain admission into the university, I hope it will help others students who want to gain admission into the university to do so. Hope this is helpful?
