List of Less Competitive Courses in UI

Many students hope to attend the University of Ibadan, thus they list it as an option during UTME registration. If you took the UTME and post-UTME screening test and still weren’t accepted, you might be wondering what less-competitive majors are available at UI. This is a common practice among students. Nevertheless, there are a select few who want to hold off on reapplying till the subsequent UTME enrollment.

Courses at University of Ibadan might be as rigorous or as relaxed as any other university. In the first place, what exactly do we mean when we say “competitive courses” and “less competitive courses”? For example, if you look at the courses offered at UI, you’ll agree that subjects like “Computer Science,” “Accounting,” “Business Administration,” “Law,” and “Mass Communications” are some of the most competitive courses registered by students who hope to gain admission to Delta State or any other university in Nigeria. Simply put, competitive courses are those that receive high UTME and DE registration volumes, while non-competitive courses receive lower registration volumes.

If you choose a less popular major at UI, you have a significantly better chance of getting accepted into the university, provided you meet the minimum JAMB score requirement. The risk of choosing a course with a high number of applicants is that even if you meet the requirements in terms of grade point average and test scores, you may still be rejected for admission.

If you’re a student at UI, whether in the arts, sciences, or business, this post will be helpful because I’ll be detailing the less competitive courses offered in each department.
