Which Universities Can be Selected as Second Choice in Jamb ?

Jamb recently reversed its decision which bared candidates from choosing any university as a second choice. 

The major reason for the ban was that most universities are only concerned about the funds they will raise through the sale of post utme screening form while leaving second choice candidate in the cold when the time for admission comes.

But after a careful observation and consultation they had to allow some few selected instructions to be selected as a second choice..

So be rest assured that this institution will accept you as a second choice candidate. 

Infact your chances are very high in this universities as they don’t discriminate against first choice or second choice candidate.
