JAMB: Possible Disadvantages Of Using Two-Sitting Result
I have been receiving a lot of messages from students that “is two sitting advisable? “. But before i answer that question, i will like to tell you the disadvantages of using two sitting result. If you are reading this, then i believe you know what two sitting result means but for more clarification let me explain it.


Simple!!! As the name implies, it is the combination of two results like combining WAEC and NECO result, WAEC and GCE or GCE and NECO. Either of the three examples are two sitting results. Now the question is ” why do students use two sitting result? “.

Students use two sitting results for one reason which is because of they actually failed a particular core subject in the WAEC exam, so they sit for another exam in order to pass the subject they failed. Let me use illustration to make my point;

Assuming Mr A sat for WAEC examination and he passed all his subjects but failed mathematics (you know that mathematics is a compulsory subject). So Mr A sat for GCE examination in order to pass mathematics, GCE result was released and Mr A passed mathematics but failed English Language, then the only possible solution is that Mr A should combine his result in order to apply for admission to the university.

The results he combined is called “Two sitting results “. I hope you now understand what two sitting results means. Good!!!
But that is not where i am heading to, the main focus of the post is to tell you the possible disadvantages of using two sitting results. I will explain as i list them;


1. Unable to apply for competitive courses.

2. It limit your option.

3. Some courses or institutions don’t accept it.

4. Why did i post this?


This is one of the disadvantages of two sitting result as you can not apply for competitive courses. Imagine five hundred candidates applying for a course like banking and finance, out of that five hundred candidates, half of them will be using one sitting result which is a criteria that can disqualify candidates using two sitting.


This is very true because candidates using two sitting result can’t just choose any course or any university. This makes the candidate who have been dreaming of courses like medicine and surgery go for lower courses that accept two sitting result.


Do you know that some courses or universities don’t accept two sitting result? Yeah, there is, courses under college of medicine in UNILAG don’t accept two sitting results and it is the same for all federal universities. This leaves you no option than to go for lower courses or institutions.


Don’t get me wrong here, i am not discouraging candidates with two sitting results but i am only trying to enlighten you on the possible disadvantages of using two sitting results.

So if you are reading this and you are about to write your WAEC or NECO or GCE examination, i will advise you to endeavour to pass all your subjects and use one sitting result for your admission processes. The disadvantages of two sitting results far outweighs the disadvantages of one sitting result.
