Are you looking for a means through which you can get admission into any Nigerian University of your choice without using JAMB? Then you’re in the right place. Direct entry if for those who possess a previous qualification like a diploma (OND), a higher polytechnic degree (HND) or A’Levels. Another good thing about this method of using direct entry to gain admission into Nigerian Universities is that upon securing the admission, the candidate starts from 200level instead of 100level. How to gain admission into Nigerian Universities is not a problem as long as you possess the following qualifications or requirements:
- Candidate must possess complete O’level result (WASSCE, NECO, GCE, NABTEB etc). It doesn’t matter if it’s one sitting or not as long as the necessary subjects are complete.
- Candidate must possess A’Level result (Cambridge A’Level or its equivalent). A’Level results could be either one of the following- OND, HND, IJMB, TG II, NCE, etc.)
Both of the above listed are prerequisites for gaining admission using direct entry. An O’Level certificate holder can in no way secure admission into the university through Direct entry except he/she possesses and A’Level qualification. In other words, they aren’t mutually exclusive.
After you must have done an honest self examination to know if you are eligible to apply or not, the next phase would be to buy the JAMB Direct Entry Form from JAMB office or Banks. Sometimes the school of one’s choice might be the forms too so it is best to ask properly. When the form has been procured, visit a JAMB approved registration centre or a credible cyber cafe.
Next step is to submit the print out from your registration along with all academic credentials to the nearest JAMB Office.
Schools usually call for an entrance examination except a few like University of Ibadan etc that release the admission list on their site without having organised an examination. It is advisable to keep an open ear at all times. Candidates who meet the standard of the school will be offered admission.
For those wonder if their lower credit qualification can be accepted into Direct Entry in all schools, the answer is no but luckily there are some schools which accept it. Some of them are listed below:
- University of Benin, UNIBEN
- University of ilorin, UNILORIN
- Usmanu Danfodio University, Sokoto.
- Federal University of Technology, Minna, FUTMINNA.
For further enquiries, see the website of the school in question you wish to apply to. Good luck!
PS: please endeavour to find out the requirements from your University of choice so as not to waste your time, effort and money. Thank you!
