Important: Jamb Direct Entry Registration 2016/2017 is On Now

The process is simple and straightforward and I will guide you through it.


Before you apply for direct entry admission in any school, you have to posses the following qualifications;

  • Complete O’level result (WASSCE, NECO, GCE, NABTEB etc)
  • A’Level Qualification (IJMB, TG II, NCE, OND, RN, HND, Bachelor Degree, etc.)

How to Apply for Direct Entry Admission Application Process

Here is the direct entry application process. If you are interested in direct entry admission and you know that you are qualified, follow the steps below;

  • Buy JAMB Direct Entry Form (from JAMB office or participatory banks)
  • Visit any approved JAMB Registration Centre to register
  • Submit the print out with all academic credentials in an envelop to the nearest JAMB Offices
  • Now monitor when your school will call for any entrance examination. Most schools like ABU Zaria, UI do not conduct entrance examination. For these universities , you have to wait for the admission list.
