Must I go through JAMB for all the programmes?

Not all our Programmes require JAMB examinations for admission. All the NID Programmes   may require MPCE-JAMB examination. However, the international students and other qualified   Nigerian candidates that can pass the post-JAMB audition/tests would have their names   forwarded to JAMB and be recommend for admissions.
On the other hand, the Professional Diploma Programmes and the Diploma in Applied musical   studies don’t require JAMB examination. Find the two categories below:

National Innovation Diploma- NID (2yrs)
NID Sound Engineering

Why am I admitted ( into Diploma in Music programme at LSMI )?

The Federal Government of Nigeria, from the 2006 researches and consultations, discovered that each year, out of about 1.5 million Nigerian children who take admission tests into tertiary institutions, only about 200,000 pass and scale through to get into these schools.
However, of this number of students who have passed, only 150, 000 are able to get admissions into any of the various universities or polytechnics due to problems of the carrying capacity. For instance, over the period 1999-2005, 4,467,708 numbers of students took the JAMB examination, out of which only 432,090 were admitted; a success rate of 10%.

What would happen to these young Nigerians who have not been admitted?
To prevent these “Rejects” turning to “Yahoo Boys,” “Italian Connection,” Drug Addicts; Armed Robbers etc, the Federal Ministry of Education-FME in their Reform Agenda, commissioned this educational intervention project to absorb the intelligent and creative candidates who could not secure admissions and to provide them an opportunity to gain an access to a quality tertiary education that are relevant to the growth of the nation in the global competitiveness. The present curricula for this educational intervention project include the following courses:

  • Information & Communication Technology (ICT),
  • Music Technology,
  • Oil & Gas Technology,
  • Agriculture,
  • Fashion & clothing Technology,
  • Hospitality & Tourism,
  • Film & TV production,
  • Creative Arts,
  • Construction & Engineering,
  • Paralegal,
  • Telecommunications,
  • Manufacturing,
  • Professional Development,
  • Banking & Finance,
  • Welding & Fabrication

Consequently, certain criteria were fed into the computer to generate an eligibility list from the candidates who sat for the last MPCE-JAMB for the 2007/08 session. Hence, you are fortunately selected by the computer-generated criteria.

Two categories of candidates have been given provisional admissions:

  • Candidates who are not yet admitted
  • Candidates who may want to consider a change of course
