When we talked about coming up with a comprehensive list of Universities in Nigeria that can admit candidates without going through the usual JAMB procedure of siting for the UTME and all the required process of scoring up to the cut off mark of the university before participating in the school’s post UTME then waiting for the release of admission list, many doubted this.
The greatest tool you can give anybody is correct and timely information. Anybody who has written JAMB two or more times knows how horrendous the experience feels like. Other times, one may have passed JAMB and the next hurdle which happens to be Post-UTME becomes the red sea between the hopeful “Jambito” and his/her admission. Keep your mind at rest now, as we have come to your rescue.
If we want to be generic, do you know you can gain admission into any university of your choice without writing JAMB? YES it is possible so long as the university has an active part time programme. This is for candidates who could not secure admission into the university with their UTME result. You can look up the universities approved to run part time programmes so as to be sure of your selection.
The under-listed schools that give admission to students without JAMB run some internally organized programmes recognized and duly approved by the NUC and JAMB and these programmes upon completing gives the student a very high chance of gaining admission to study the course of their choices. Some of the prgrammes would require the candidate start from 100 Level with some would require the candidate to go directly to 200Level, all you need to do is purchase the forms and follow the instructions and guidelines on how to apply.
Remember i stated earlier that you can gain admission into any university of your choice without using your JAMB result by applying through the school’s part time programme, however, the other programmes that can guarantee you admission into the university without writing JAMB or the use of JAMB result are as follows:
List of Programmes That Can Guarantee You Admission Into The University Without JAMB
a) IJMB Programme
b) Predegree Programme
c) Diploma Programme
d) JUPEB Programme
e) Part Time Degree Programme
This above information is not known to most O’level certificate holders seeking admission into the university or polytechnic. so please share this with them with every available social media platforms at your disposal.
In addition to the above, it would be worthy to the above are the list of schools that can admit without JAMB and the available programmes available in the universities for students to take advantage of as seen below.
List of Universities In Nigeria That Admit Without JAMB
a) NATIONAL OPEN UNIVERSITY OF NIGERIA
It does not require you to write JAMB or tender any JAMB result to be qualified for the entry into this school and they are currently accepting application from people. You might be wondering how possible this is.The University has the following features:
- No JAMB result needed
Get the Application Form and get admitted within 3 days
They are located throughout Nigeria
Over 32,000 students
For undergraduate, Diploma, Certification, Postgraduate, Masters & Ph.D Programmes
No strike period
Four years course
b) UNILORIN (IJMB Programme)
it is called INTERIM JOINT MATRICULATION BOARD, It is an A level program of 9 months that after completion qualifies you to 200 level in the above listed Nigerian Universities through Direct Entry.
It is a very legitimate program as can be seen in JAMB brochure.
This program doesn’t need jamb rather all its requires is your o’level result be it Waec, neco, nabteb etc.
c) UNIVERSITY OF ABUJA (IJMB Programme)
UNIABUJA is one of the schools that grants admission to students without JAMB, using the IJMB programme, all you need do is make sure you have your complete WAEC or NECO results and when their IJMB forms are out on sale, purchase and apply for the programme and in no distant time you will be a full time degree student.
d) ABU ZARIA (IJMB Programme)
Ahmadu Bello University Zaria organizes the IJMB programme too, just like other universities, your complete O’Level results must be available with a minimum of 5 Credit passes in relevant subjects to your proposed course. Register online for the IJMB programme as it is another surer means of gainind admission into ABU Zaria without the use of JAMB.
e) UNIPORT (BASICS 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 1/2/3 years depending on the school and course which upon completion give you admission into 200level through direct entry while pre-degree runs for 7months to 9months depending on the school which gives you admission into 100level 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 100level.
f) DELSU (Predegree Programme)
Delta state university, DELSU offers students the opportunity to gain admission to study any of the available courses in her institution through their Pre-degree programme. It is a lifeline given to candidates who could not secure admission into the school through UTME. Most candidates have taken opportunity of this programme because the management of DELSU gives priority to these category of students as it is an internally organized programme so it has to live up to its expectations.
If you are looking for ways to gain admission into DELSU without JAMB, then this programme is best suited for you.
g) SOME PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS (MADONNA & CO, etc)
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.
