Well, those things are bound to happen every admission year because a huge lot of people apply for admission every year whereas only limited spaces are available which can only accommodate just 30% of the total applicants.
SEE POPULATION OF STUDENTS THAT APPLIED IN EACH SCHOOLS this year which is a large amount compared to the carrying capacity of the nations higer institutions.
What will happen to the other 70% or more than, that was not admitted?
There are many things that will happen to each and every one of em..
Either the person quit trying possible because s/he has been applying for admission for almost some years now but because of some factors, they don't seem to be getting the admission. That is a convincing reason why they may decide to quit.
To others who initially sworn not to attend any other institution other than a University, Because they don't have any other alternative right now, will now have to take back they words and yield to the present condition at hand which will result to them studying in other institutions but University.
Others may receive fake promises from some douche bags which may nickname themselves "AGENT" of a particular institution to get admission where as they main intention is to defraud them.
In any of the situation you find your self, they are still some complete solution or partial one depending on the case which is why some of the alternatives that will be listed below will directly or indirectly help you in one way or the other.
ADMISSION ALTERNATIVES IF NOT ADMITTED BY YOUR MOST PREFERRED INSTITUTION1. Apply to schools who accept other applicants that did not make them any of the 1st to 4th choice in JAMB:
This is the best alternative ever as you can be able to apply to universities, Polytechnics, and colleges of education without having to choose them in jamb.
Why is this the best Alternative?
Even though you met your school and departmental requirements, there may still be a problem of you having to compete with thousands of people in your department or faculty just for 150 to 200 admission slots. but with this option, you can still apply to three or four different schools which will increase your chances of getting admission either to a University, Polytechnic or a college of education.

2. Go for your less preferred choices:
This may not be an option for those who fall into the category of not attending any other institution other than a University. But, for others, this option is also very helpful as you can be able to enroll into a polytechnic or colleges of Education if its your choice, as those ones has lesser applicants each year.
With this, you don't have to waste any more years at home doing same thing over and over again.
Note:Enrolling to a polytechnic this year and not getting admission into a University this year is 99.9% the same.
Well, to answer it short, Gaining admission into a polytechnic now will land you into 200-level in the university through direct-entry which is the same level you will be at if you are to gain admission into a University Next year.
But what if you did not still make it next year? you will now waste two years and by that time, the person that started a polytechnic this year will have one year over you.

5. Forget about this year's admission and start a tutorial:
Did you not pass your jamb cutoff mark this year or was not admitted just because you did not prepare very well or because the questions were too hard for you? That is Understandable as some things may inconvenience one from not preparing very well during jamb or post-utme.
Since you cannot gain admission this year, that dosen't mean that all hope is gone for you in life.
You can still increase your chances of getting admission next year Un-tethered by joining a tutorial point or center to equip you in your field of study or better still do it on your own by mapping out a very serious reading schedule for yourself.
Believe me, if you apply this number 5 alternative very well, Jamb will be very afraid of you the next year as you are ready to battle them academically and to your surprise, you can score very high mark in jamb which will make your fight for admission an easy one without worrying about post-utme or any screening as your score says it all.
