National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN): You 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 nothing like a 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.

IJMB A-Level Programmes

How to Gain admission without Jamb

IJMB which stands for Interim Joint Matriculation Board is an A’level program moderated by Ahmadu Bello University.

Does it mean that only Ahmadu Bello University accepts IJMB result for admission? No. A lot of universities accept IJMB result for admission into any course. Have you ever heard of A’level programmes?

Here’s how they work:

You apply for the programme and it usually runs for 1 year or 9 months less than a year. During the programme, you will be lectured on A’level courses (similar to 100L). 

You will write an examination based on everything you have been taught in the programme. Usually, there will be two (2) examinations – One for each semester (both semesters make up one academic session just like in Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education).

Using the result you get from the programme, you will be able to apply for 200L direct entry admission into any institution that accepts the certificate (over 97% of Federal universities and other universities accept A’level results).

The best parts about A’level programmes include:

  • You will be taught everything you will be asked in the examination unlike JAMB where you may have to read on your own.
  • IJMB result does not expire and you can keep using the same result to apply over and over unlike JAMB that expires in a year.
  • Also, admission is directly into 200L by 2021 and it is equivalent to gaining admission this year.
  • lot of schools recognize the certificate and accept it.
  • There is higher chance of gaining admission compared to JAMB UTME.

Part-time/Weekend/Evening Programmes

In Nigeria, all most all universities offer part-time degree programmes. The part-time degree programmes are just the same with full-time degree programmes (That is admission through JAMB) in terms of the certificate.

The differences are that, not all courses are offered in a part-time programme, part-time programmes take an extra year and finally, part-time graduates do not go for the National Youth Service Corps.

You must have heard of Part-time (evening) or weekend programmes. For most schools, you do not need JAMB UTME result to apply for their Part-time programme (especially the weekend programme).

You just need to meet the minimum O’level requirements for the course and you are good to go.

Mostly, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education offer these programmes.

Just find out if your school of choice offers Part-time/Weekend programme admission without JAMB.

JUPEB A’Level Programme

The same way, you can use your certificate to gain admission into many Federal Universities in Nigeria except the University of Ibadan (UI). The Examination is written in June every year, and results are released in August.
