Jamb Alternatives: 5 Best Ways To Gain Admission Into A University Without JAMB

Admission Without JAMB: This page will show you the best alternatives to JAMB. With this page, you will be able to gain admission into any Nigerian University without JAMB. Please share this page as you might be saving someone from staying at home for another year.

So many prospective university students struggle yearly to gain admission through JAMB. Even some students that make it through this exam still have to internal screening exams by the university (POST-UTME).

Here is a line of hope for Nigerian want-to-be university students; you can now gain admission into a Nigerian university without JAMB.

ways to Gain Admission Into University Without Writing JAMB

#1. Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board, JUPEB

Over the years, Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB) has become one of the most reliable ways to gain admission into any Nigerian University without JAMB.

If you are tired of writing JAMB multiple times, then JUPEB is one of the ways to gain admission.

This program is a proven, approved, and certified 9-month program that is moderated by the University of Lagos. They also have different coordinating bodies across Nigeria.

After you complete the JUPEB programme, you would be awarded a certificate. It is with this certificate that you can apply for direct entry in JUPEB affiliated universities for 200 level admission.

Before you stand jumping up, please note that JUPEB is also a tough programme. This simply implies that if you want to do the programme, you should make up your mind that you will prepare well for the exam. If you don’t you might not gain admission.

It is worth noting that with JUPEB you can actually gain admission into ANY course. That’s right absolutely ANY Course. But like we said above, you have to be ready to READ!

The JUPEB programe is a NINE MONTHS PROGRAMME. Some schools says it’s a one academic session programme. Simply put, it is a one year programme.

#5. National Business and Technical Examinations Board, NABTEB, A’level

Another way to gain admission without JAMB into a Nigerian University is through the National Business and Technical Examinations Board, (NABTEB) A” Level program.

Like any other A’ Level examination, allows students to secure admission into 200 Level in the University through Direct Entry.

The NABTEB Advanced Level programme runs for a period of two semesters, after which a successful NABTEB A’LEVEL student graduates into 200 level in the University through direct entry. All courses are available for NABTEB A’LEVEL programme.

Candidates seeking admission into the NABTEB A’LEVEL programme must possess a minimum of 5 Credits in relevant o’level subjects from WAEC, NECO or NABTEB in not more than two sittings. Awaiting result can also apply for the NABTEB A’LEVEL programme.

Lectures on NABTEB A’LEVEL programme are guided by the approved NABTEB A’LEVEL syllabus and the contents of the NABTEB A’LEVEL syllabus cover University 100 level syllabus and above, which must be taught within a period of two semesters.

The entire NABTEB A’LEVEL examination process is moderated by the NABTEB A’LEVEL headquaters, Benin, together with JAMB-approved moderators at the approved NABTEB A’LEVEL accredited institutions.
