List of Easiest Universities to Gain Admission in Nigeria

Many students in Nigeria applying for 2017 -18 UTME want to apply for admission to an institution where they stand a chance of being admitted after sitting for the exam.

Although, most of the students are searching online every day for the list of less competitive federal universities in Nigeria, but that is not where it ends when it comes to getting admission into Nigerian Universities.

According to the current statistics, most candidates who apply for admission into over-competitive universities like the UNILORIN, UNILAG, UNIBEN end up not gaining admission.

However, there is no point saying that securing admission in today’s Nigeria Universities is a walk in process and I can testify to that. After six years of secondary school education comes the crucial rounds and the sequence of “frustrating” assessment and examinations – the almighty JAMB.

First thing is to scale through the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) or the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE). Next, the moving ahead of preparing for the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board- Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations JAMB UTME or Direct Entry as the case may be in some students.

The truth is that there are no easy ways to get admitted in Nigeria Universities.

In addition, the frustration many students in Nigeria face during admission into universities in Nigeria does not end there, as required by the Nigerian tertiary institutions – Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges  and the Pre-degree examinations like the Post-UTME Examination have to be taken in order to secure full admission to most universities in Nigeria.

The journey continues and goes further, after sitting for those examinations, the hassle does not come to an end- There is always the competition for admission, such as the search for high Cut-off marks, State region consideration, ELDS, the bribery in most universities and making the dean’s list. Consequently, the unlucky ones are left with nothing than to search for the less competitive state universities in Nigeria.

So, instead of applying to those over-competitive ones, why don’t you try these other universities which are less competitive and can offer you a better chance of being admitted.
