A very large percentage of students in Nigeria face the rigorous stress just to scale through the JAMB examination exercise yearly before being given admission into the tertiary institution.
Applicants who are fortunate enough in scaling through this exam with high grade or cut off mark in the exercise get to go through another round of screening or test which is called POST-UTME before they can actually be qualified to be given admission into the institution of their choice.
At other times, prospective students are often forced against their wish to change their choice of course of study in order to gain admission because of their low marks or grades.
The compilation of all these give students the nervousness by believing that JAMB is an exercise that is totally difficult and impossible for the average students to pass.
As you read on, I will show you in this article how you can gain admission into Nigerian universities or polytechnic without having to ever stress yourself taking JAMB examination.
Sets of Students Who Can Apply For This
1. Students who did not sit for JAMB.
2. Students seeking admission into any tertiary institution within the country.
3. Students who didn’t get JAMB cut off mark.
4. Students who are awaiting O’level.
5. Students who just graduated from SSS-3.
Yoy may now be wanting to ask; How can one gain admission into any Nigerian higher institutions without JAMB.
Here are other means:
1. Private University.
In Nigeria are lots of private universities, polytechnic and even colleges of education that offer admission to students with low JAMB grade.
Some of these privately owned institutions don’t even need your JAMB score.
All you need to do is pick up their form either online or at their centers and fill it out along with other requirements that the institution may demand.
2. IJMB (Interim Joint Matriculation Board)
IJMB is also another route through which you can secure an admission into any university of your choice without the need to take JAMB examination.
This programme is run and moderated in Nigeria by Ahmadu Bello University, ABU Zaria. With this programme you can gain a direct entry into 200level of any of the affiliated university such as university of Benin, UniCals, ABU Zaria and the list of other higher institutions of learning after having passed through their nine months study programme.
3. NOUN( The National Open University of Nigerian)
NOUN is another route through which students gain admission into the higher institutions without having to go through the stress of taking JAMB examination.
A lot of people confuse the idea that NOUN is strictly for the workforce or the aged but this notion is false.
This opportunity is opened for those who don’t want to pass through JAMB or wait for the next exercise after not being successful with the previous one.
4. JUPEB (Joint University Preliminary Board)
JUPEB just like IJMB is a national examination body that avails students the avenue to boycott the stress of sitting for JAMB in order to gain admission by allowing the students run a programme usually within the space of nine months and stand the chance of securing a direct entry admission into 2nd year.
All that is required of the student is just to go online or at their approved centers to pick up the form, fill it out and make necessary payments.
I have shown you through this article how you can gain admission into any of the Nigerian universities without having to take JAMB.
Are you searching for this opportunity?
I hope this comes useful.
