FUPRE admission quota analysis

NOTE: The quota as seen on the JAMB official website are as follows:

  1. 45% by merit
  2. 35% by a catchment area
  3. 20% by educationally less developed states (ELDS)

See The Analysis Below.

Assuming twelve thousand candidates (12,000) choose FUPRE in UTME, and eight thousand (8,000) candidates score above the school’s UTME cut off marks, then the institution will conduct post UTME screening for the 8,000 candidates.

For instance, Let’s say FUPRE pegs her post UTME cut off mark at 35, and only has the capacity to admit 3,500 candidates.

If 6000 candidates pass the post UTME out of the 8,000 candidates, then the quota will be calculated as follows.

Quota by Merit: Admission by merit is awarded to candidates with the highest performance in UTME and the school’s post UTME screening (if any) plus any other requirements specified by the school’s board.

So, from the figures above, the merit quota will be:

45 x 3500 / 100

= 1,575 candidates.

These 1,575 will be admitted strictly based on merit.

Quota by catchment area (Indigene): Admission by catchment area is strictly for the indigene of Delta state and it makes up 35% of the total number of candidates to be admitted.

Let’s do the calculation.

35 x 3500 / 100

= 1,225

= 1,225 candidates will be considered for admission based on the catchment area.

Quota by state category (Educationally less developed state). This quota is reserved for candidates from some selected states in Nigeria, and it makes up 20% of the total candidates to be admitted.

20 x 3500 / 100

= 700

700 candidates will be considered for admission based on ELDS (Educationally Less Developed States).

States that fall under the “educationally less developed states”.

Twenty-three (23) states of the federation have been identified as Educationally Less Developed States (ELDS). These states are Adamawa, Bauchi, Bayelsa, Benue, Borno, Cross River, Ebonyi, Gombe, Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Kastina, Kebbi, Kogi, Kwara, Nasarawa, Niger, Plateau, Rivers, Sokoto, Taraba, Yobe and Zamfara.
