11 Ways To Gain Admission Without JAMB

Have you heard of ADMISSION WITHOUT JAMB? JAMB is NOT the only gateway to higher institution in Nigeria. Every year candidates who failed  to be admitted through JAMB usually give up any hope of securing admission for that particular academic year hoping to wait till next year to write another JAMB exam.

Now, if you happen to be in this situation right now, it does not mean that all hope of securing admission this year is gone. You can still secure admission without JAMB. Yes! You got me right. I will outline and explain these other ways of gaining admission so you can make the choice that is best for you.

How To Gain Admission Without JAMB

National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN):

Yo may have heard about the Open University of Nigeria. You do not require JAMB to gain admission into the Open University of Nigeria (NOUN). One advantage of the Open University is that there is noting like school going on strike. The major disadvantage is that their graduates are not allowed to participate in NYSC. Though the management of the university is working to resolve this issue with the government. So hopefully soon, they will be allowed to participate in NYSC. So if you will like to enrol in NOUN, visits their official website: http://nouedu.net/ to know the courses available and locate the closest study centre nationwide.

IJMB/JUPEB/Diploma Programmes:

IJMB stands for Interim Joint Matriculation Board. IJMB is an Advanced-Level (A-Level) Course, which you take for 9 months, after which you take a final exam that gives you a certificate. This certificate can then be used to apply for Direct entry admission into 200 Level in any university of your choice. JUPEB stands for Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB).

Just like IJMB is it equally an advanced level programme. Successful candidates can use their certificate to apply for direct entry admission into 200 level in any university of their choice. Diploma programmes Some universities still offer Diploma programmes. This programme usually last for 2 years after which you will obtain a certificate which you can use to apply for admission into 200 level in that university or any other university.
Other acceptable A-level certificate like A-level GCE certificate can be used equally to secure direct entry admission into 200 level in any university. All these programmes are offered by many universities as well as some educational agencies.

Pre-degree/Remedial Programmes:

Pre-degree/Remedial/Foundation Programmes are offered by many universities and is designed to support candidates who do not meet certain requirements for admission. After completing the programme which usually last for 7-12 months, the successful candidates are admitted into relevant undergraduate degree courses in the school they did the programme. We usually update information on Pre-degree/Remedial/Foundation Programmes admissions and sales of forms.  So you can always visit the Pre-degree Admission Page for such information or updates.

Part-time/Weekend/Evening Programmes:

Almost all universities offer part-time degree programmes. The part-time degree programmes is just the same with full time degree programmes (That is admission through JAMB) in terms of certificate. The differences are that, not all courses are offered in part-time programme, part-time programmes takes an extra year and finally part-time graduates do not go for the National Youth Service Corps.

Similarly almost all polytechnics run evening and weekend programmes. There’s one they equally call Daily Part-time programme (DPT) in some polytechnics. If you enrol in any of these programmes, you will obtain your National Diploma certificate after 2-3 years just like those that gained admission through JAMB. You can use the National Diploma certificate obtained to apply for direct entry admission into 200 level in any university of your choice if you do not want to continue with your HND in the polytechnic.
This is really cool if you are working and schooling at the same time as it will give you time for both. We equally provide information on Part-time/evening and weekend programmes as well. So you can always visit the Part-time Admission Updates  for such information or updates.

Study Abroad:

Schools outside Nigeria do not require you to have JAMB result before you can be admitted. I know many students that JAMB ha frustrated countless and they have no option than to move to Ghana for their higher education. The thing however is that it is quite expensive studying abroad. So this option is for those who can afford it unless you are able to get a scholarship.

What Are The Requirements To Gain Admission Without JAMB Into These Programmes

All you need to run any of these programmes is just your O’level result (WAEC, NECO etc or even a combination of the results). You not need to take JAMB or have a JAMB result to enroll in any of the programmes. Enrolling in any of these programmes is better than waiting for another year. Unless age is still on your side. If not, take advantage of any of these programmes as you deem convenient or suitable. Do you have anything else to add to this article or have any questions, leave your comment below.
