Requirements for Gaining Admission into Nigerian Universities

How to Gain Admission Easily in NigeriaIf you really want to get admission into any Nigerian university, follow these important steps: 

  1.  Ordinary level result
  2. Carryout Research on the University of your choice
  3. High JAMB Score
  4. High Post- UTME Score
  5. Seek Admission in Your State (Catchment Area)
  6. Less Competitive Courses
  7. Build Networks
  8. Less Competitive Courses
  9. Take Everything Serious


 Ordinary level result

The first thing that you should be thinking of is your Ordinary level result. Nigerian universities accept any of the following O’level results: WAEC, GCE, NECO,  NABTEB,  A’level can be IJMB, JUPEB, and DIPLOMA, etc. remember that some universities like UNILAG and other schools in Nigeria don’t accept two sittings. So, if you are applying for admission know this.

Please when you are writing your WAEC ensure that your results are excellent, especially the subjects that concern your course of study at the university. You should also make sure that you are not using an awaiting result for your registration if you want to get admission quickly. 

Carryout Research on the University of your choice

Before you register for JAMB carry out research on many Nigerian universities to know which of them offers the course you want to study and all the necessary requirements of the school.   

High JAMB Score

Having a very high JAMB score is a step forward. And note that a good JAMB score does not score like 180, 200, or 220. Rather, good JAMB scores should start from 250, 280, 300, and above. Getting a good JAMB score is one access way to gain admission easily.

Listen, whether your course is not competitive or not, a high score can secure admission for you even in the first list, Just passing or getting the cut-off mark of say 180 for you to be eligible to write the Post-UTME is not a good start. Start with a good JAMB score.

High Post- UTME Score

If you have a high score in your Jamb, the next thing to focus on is your post-UTME score. Because you scored well in your JAMB does not mean that you will do well in the aptitude test, so study hard and prove your readiness to get admission, by getting a high post-UTME score.

JAMB and POST UTME is not the same, so don’t relent whether you passed your JAMB excellently or not. This is one of the reasons why most students fail to gain admission with their high scores in JAMB.

How to Gain Admission Easily in NigeriaSeek Admission in Your State (Catchment Area)

Whether you are seeking admission to a state or federal university, let it be a university situated in your state of origin. You will have the advantage of being considered for admission first when a university is located in your state or a neighboring state. That is what the catchment area can do for you. Candidates from the state are always admitted first, with preference given to applicants from other nearby states. With your high O’Level, JAMB, and POST UTME scores, applying to your home university will put you ahead of others.


Less Competitive Courses

If you are looking for quick admission, choose less competitive courses. You are more likely to get admission to a less competitive course than prominent and competitive courses that almost every student with very high scores is seeking. Most times parents encourage their children to apply for courses like Pharmacy, Law, Medicine & Surgery, and Engineering but don’t consider the level of competition in those courses. I advise if you have tried a course two times and did not get admission, try and change the course to another.

 courses to study with less competition in Nigerian universities:

  • Nutrition and Dietetics
  • Political Science
  • Radiography
  • Religion Studies
  • Sociology
  • Veterinary Medicine
  • Zoology
  • Architecture
  • Biochemistry
  • English Language
  • Fishery
  • Geography

Institution Choice 

The institution that you choose can also be a hindrance to your admission, so don’t choose those top-ranking institutions that big men’s children are applying to, it might be very hard to get admission because of competition in the choice of institution. For instance, getting admission to federal institutions like UNILAG, UNIBEN, UNILORIN UI, and OAU can be very difficult. So, instead of wasting your time and resources seeking admission to those schools look for less competitive institutions and apply.
