LATEST UPDATE : 31ST JULY, 2016
Check your name in Jamb website, if you are not posted yet, you keep checking, you may be posted later.
Some Of The Reasons Why Your Name May Not Have Been Posted To Your School For Admission Consideration:
1. LOW UTME SCORE:
Maybe your score is too low for the course you are aspiring for. Someone who scored 201 and aspiring for home science may be posted but someone who scored 248 and aspiring for medicine may not be posted. This is because home science is likely to cut below 201 while medicine will never cut below 248, so Jamb has assumed that someone with 201 is supposed to get admission under home science without screening yet. Remember that if your name is posted, it means you have been "Temporarily" offered admission by Jamb, meaning you scored above what Jamb is likely to cut for that course if they were to admit you alone but school is yet to screen you to know if actually you are qualified even when you scored above "assumed" cutoff mark. Meanwhile, there are some courses that even when you scored above likely "assumed" cutoff mark, you will still not be posted, sometimes you will be posted even when you scored below but the posting is mainly based on your score and your course because ALL SCHOOLS may have sent their cutoff marks to Jamb but you wont know.
2.CHANGE OF INSTITUTIONS:
This may not really be the problem because there are some who did not change school yet they are not posted yet but some people I know that have not been posted even when they scored high in Jamb did change of school (about 2 people so far).
The only names that may be posted later in the Jamb website may be special candidates. All of you know what I mean by special candidates; they may be people with some errors in their registration numbers or error in change of school, they may be people that are sorting out their admission via staff/university quota/slot through a staff, they may be people that know someone in the university..this is Nigeria so everything is possible. It happened last year when some people who were not eligible later became eligible even before everything was cancelled. I know how it was done then and it will still be done this time. Some of you know me very well, I say what I see and what happens, I dont pretend to be self-made saint.
So if you are not posted yet, dont lose hope yet, be prayerful, it may still touch Jamb to upload more names and your name may be there. You can still be posted through other means maybe through miracles or maybe if you are sorting out your admission.
Dont just lose hope or give up until its over. If worse turns to worst, you may be posted to another university; all univeristies are good, it must not be your school of choice. Its not the school you attend or course you read that makes you, its your destiny.

The University of Nigeria, Nsukka and FULokoja both released their forms, they made it public for all their aspirants but if you apply for the screening form, they will still check if you are eligible or not. Some aspirants who were not posted still went ahead to check their eligibility in the school database and it turns out that their names were in the list. You may recall that the 8th rule in the guidelines released by Jamb states that schools have only a month to consider the names of the aspirants sent to them. This means two things:
Jamb will send all the names of the eligible candidates, both those who have been currently posted by Jamb and those who will still be posted to the school in question
-UNN and FULokoja are the only two universities that have cross-checked and accepted the list sent by Jamb.
This simply means renewed hope for all those who are yet to see their names. Your names may have already been forwarded to your first choice institution, just that it is yet to be published on the Jamb website which shows that our sources were correct when they said that only the merit list was published on the Jamb website. So do not relent yet, continue praying and when your school releases her own screening form, do not hesitate to check your own eligibility in their database but please DO NOT PAY BEFORE CHECKING YOUR ELIGIBILITY.
We all know that Jamb is not mighty efficient so nobody knows exactly when the next batches will be published on the Jamb website but be rest assured that if your name is in the list at all, when the time comes, you will be able to register for your schools PUTME. So I urge you not to stop praying and stop blaming.
For those who saw their names, well as you celebrate, you may want to start praying again. This is because only UNN and FULokoja have accepted the lists sent to them by Jamb, so your institution may cook up a fantastic reason why you should not be admitted and your name will be removed during the consideration and probably replaced by someone who does not even merit it, this is Nigeria after all. So continue praying too. While you pray, do endeavour to get the following documents listed HERE
You have already been admitted, so you are advised to PRINT the original Jamb result slip since you will need it anyways, and do so now before CYBER CAFES AND TUTORIAL CENTERS begins add their own commissions as they usually do. Also get a decent outfit that you will put on for the screening, you do not want to go there looking like a cultist else you may be rusticated.
Finally, this is for those who got high scores but have not been admitted. If you see a candidate going for thesame course as you are and who has been posted with a lower score, regardless of the state of origin(since this is just the merit list), please look for the school's complaint Email and send them a mail containing your reg number and that of the person before the school releases her own screening form. The school will now cross-check, if your name is there nothing will be done, but if your name isn't there, they will check for possible causes such as wrong subject combination, but if nothing is wrong with your result, they will send a complaint to the Jamb headquarters, it is all part of the consideration process.
