Universities in Nigeria that Give Admission Without JAMB 2022

The university is usually the next phase of life after completion of secondary school and I have decided to share the Universities in Nigeria that give admission without JAMB 2022.

In Nigeria, it is widely known that you are to sit for the JAMB examination and get the desired Cut off point before you can gain admission into the university.

Apart from the general JAMB cut off point, each university has its own cut off point that they expect from students who are applying for their institution, hence students who are not able to meet up with these points are left to wait for another one year before applying again.

Good news!

Do you know that you can now gain admission into a Nigerian university without JAMB.

Surprised right?

Well, it is very possible!

The good thing about this is that you do not need to choose these institutions as your first or second choice, all you need to do is to make sure you buy their Post UTME Form and sit for their exams.

How to Use JUPEB to Gain Admission Without JAMB

JUPEB is a program run by some selected universities. It is a one-year program where students are required to attend lectures and take an exam that qualifies them to be admitted into 200 level of their chosen university.

Students get into 200 level through direct entry, hence though this program does not require JAMB to start, students will be required to write JAMB after a successful completion of the one year program.
