Abia state university is one school many students apply in their UTME registration in a bid to gain admission into the school. After writing your UTME, post UTME screening test and finally see you were not successful, the next plan that comes to mind is change of course and you ask yourself, what are the less competitive courses in ABSU can I apply for? This is the norm amongst students. Albeit, some students rather wait until the next UTME registration to reapply..
ABSU like other universities have competitive courses and less competitive courses. Firstly, what do we mean by competitive courses and less competitive courses? Competitive courses are simply courses that many students register for during their UTME registration for example if you go through the list of courses offered in ABSU you will agree with me that courses like Medicine, Computer Science, Accounting, Business Administration, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Law, International Studies and Diplomacy or International Relations are amongst the most competitive courses registered by students seeking admission into ABSU or other schools in Nigeria. In the nutshell, these are courses majority of students register in their UTME while non competitive courses are programmes that are less registered by UTME or DE candidates.
The advantage of selecting less competitive courses offered in ABSU is because you stand a much better chance of gaining admission into Abia State University because there are less candidates applying for the course so you can easily be admitted despite a low JAMB score so long as you pass the cut off mark while The disadvantage selecting a highly competitive course is that despite passing the cut off mark and scoring high, you might still not be given admission because of the high number of candidates that must have applied for the course hence your low chances.
