Jamb 2016 Registration Stats

I think Jamb Registration statistics is quite important. Most people take it for granted.
It shows how Jambites registered for UTME in the year being reviewed. Previous Jamb Registration Stats will let you know your competition for a course. Not much will change in 2017 Jamb.
Those highly competitive courses will likely remain so. Know your abilities and chose appropriately.
Personally, I believe if you put in the work. You will do well in any of them.
Jamb 2016 Registration statistics outlines the number of students aspiring for a particular course. 10,970 students are competing for Accounting in Unilorin, 4,338 are competing for Medicine and Surgery in Uniuyo, 4,679 are competing for Civil law in the Ahmadu Bello University.
