JAMB Direct Entry Requirements For 2015/16/17

JAMB Direct Entry Requirements 2015. Direct Entry Admissions grant entrance to candidates who have completed any of NCE, IJMB, Nursing School, ND, etc programmes into second year of their chosen courses. All Federal, State and Private Universities in Nigeria accept Direct Entry for Admission, provided the candidate in question is qualified (possessing the relevant pass grades for the program of interest). Depending on the institution, some schools insist on upper credit benchmark while others may be a bit liberal and may accept lower credits.

The first step to gaining admission through DE is to first purchase JAMB Direct Entry Form, and thereafter register online. Although 2015 DE form is not yet out on sale (as at the date of this publication), candidates who wish to gain admission through DE are to always check this link: for latest updates regarding the sale of form for 2015/2016 admissions. This particular article you are reading is to get you informed on requirements for getting admission into any University through DE.

Qualifications For Admission Through Direct Entry

As earlier mentioned in first paragraph, admission though DE gives you access to 200L of your degree programme without passing through first year. Online application is usually done via To apply via this method however you need to have any of the following qualifications:-

– Ordinary National Diploma certificate (OND)
– Higher National Diploma certificate (HND)
– GCE A Level, HSC, DALF certificate
– An acceptable Baccalaureate certificate

or equivalents of these from accredited Polytechnics and colleges of education.

NB: Only students whose cumulative grade point average (CGPA) meets the requirement for the intended course of study will be considered. The JAMB Brochure contain specific requirements for courses and schools. Normally, candidates who gain admission into the University through DE start from 200 level except for a few departments/courses in some schools that insist that DE students must start from 100 level with UTME students.

Candidates who have any of the above requirements/qualifications and wish to gain admission into a university degree programme through Direct Entry (DE) are to wait patiently for the commencement of sale of forms by JAMB. It should start hopefully after the completion of 2015 UTME. We will keep you posted.
