Good day everyone! I am a year 2 medical student. The application requirements stated clearly that my JAMB score alone is enough for the application and honestLy its a huge relief because I can’t really remember my CGPA. My question is, “if my JAMB score is all they require, what exactly should i fill in the space for CGPA??”


Please whose submission has been confirmed ?

And if submitting ordinary print out is going to screw tings up for me what can I do to be on the saver side because I’ve submitted the application already. I was thinking of starting the application again with the same details and submitting either the original result or the certificate which I’ll have to go and obtain therefore having to submit the application twice hope it won’t have any side effects or you should enlighten me on what to do

Oluwapelumi Isaiah Aremu

When filling the form I see something like SSCE result not SSCE certificate meanwhile when you guys are listing the required document you said SSCE certificate so I’m confuse because I’ve already uploaded my SSCE result which is my NECO result
