3) DIPLOMA OR BASIC OR PRE-DEGREE Programme
There’s barely any Nigerian tertiary institution that doesn’t offer diploma and/or pre-degree program. From what we all know about Diploma, it is a program that runs for an average of 1year depending on the school and course which upon completion give you admission into 200 level through direct entry while pre-degree runs for 7 months to 9 months depending on the school which gives you admission into 100 level upon completion.
BASIC in UNIPORT is just like the pre-degree program which runs for almost a year and those who pass are admitted into 100 level.
4) SOME PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS
The beauty of some of these private institutions is the ease with which admission can easily be gotten. In this case, the student can be admitted without JAMB and WAEC only on one condition, being that upon getting to 300level or final year, the basic admission requirements like JAMB and WAEC/NECO must be ready for submission for clearance.
5) PART-TIME PROGRAMME
Another popular means of gaining admission into any school of your choice without having to sit for JAMB or post UTME is through part-time programmes. Most Federal and state universities in Nigeria offer part time degree programmes, though this is mainly to cater for working class individulas who probably is mature and still have the desire for improving his or her career, but nowadays, young secondary school students are tapping into this means of gaining admission without JAMB.
Part-time is an internally organized degree programme run by the institution, though accredited by the Nigerian University Commission (NUC) therefore has the power to award degrees upon completion of any of the degree programmes offered by the student.
90% of both private and government owned universities in Nigeria organizes this programme so it is left to you to choose which is more suitable for you.
So if there’s anyone you know who JAMB must have “JAMBed” (lol just kidding) and is looking for the list of universities that admit without JAMB please tell them cos there’s no point wasting more time doing nothing at home.
