JAMB UTME Direct Entry Requirements 2020/2021 and How to Apply. Below are the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board eligibility for DE.

Some of my readers who want to enter Universities in Nigeria through Direct entry are looking for a well written article on JAMB UTME direct entry requirements.

And because of them, I have decided to put something down on the said topic.

The first thing is that most universities prefer candidates who graduated with Upper credit and Distinction than candidates with lower credit. Although some schools do accept lower credit.

In the same vein, candidates with Cambridge A level or IJMB or JUPEB should have at least 12 points to have a higher chance.

JAMB Direct Entry Requirements 2020 – General

Candidates with one of the following qualifications may be considered for admission by Direct Entry:

  1. A minimum of O’Level credit pass in five (5) subjects at not more than two sittings with at least two prescribed subjects (for each discipline) at Principal or Advanced level. No subject shall be counted twice at both Ordinary and Advanced Level
  2. Two passes (in prescribed subjects for each discipline) at the Advanced-Level Examination of IJMB, Cambridge, JUPEB or Institute of Baccalaureate with SSCE/GCE, NTS/NBC credits equivalents in three other subjects
  3. Passes in two major subjects in the NCE with S.C.E., NTC/NBC credits or equivalents in THREE other subjects (mainly for Education Courses) and ND. For Education courses, Education may be accepted as a third A’ Level subject
  4. Minimum of lower credit grade in National Diploma or National Innovation Diploma and the O’Level requirements

Furthermore, you have to be sure that the university of your choice do accept DE. For instance, if you want do Direct Entry for Medicine and Surgery, some universities won’t accept irrespective of your grade.

Finally, it is easy to secure admission through DE if you can research the school and meet up with their requirements.
