@LordJoseph18 reacted:

He should have made Economics as his first choice. Because, the cutoff point for all the Business Administration programs he selected is higher than his grade but it’s not the reason for seeing this. Anyway , I stand to be corrected.

@theRaiBoyy commented

There shouldn't be that "not qualified" even if he doesn't make the cut off point. Not qualified means he doesn't meet the entry requirements for the programme at all and it shouldn't be so considering his electives and the programmes he chose.

@kumah_israel5 reacted:

Yes sir. The problem was the index number

@LebronSheriff added:

Please do not mind the cut-off point. Majority of the courses do not follow the cutoff points posted on their websites. Just make sure you have from A1 to C6 and you may be considered to pursuing some of the courses
