We understand these days that to secure Admission into Nigerian Universities is a hard thing. Everyday, the young people and students are complaining about the system of education in Nigeria, and it is like the more the complaints, the more things get worse. Ans that is why the rate at which students leave the country is getting higher everyday.
It is is not enough to be smashing in secondary schools or high schools and at the end, you fail to gain admission into the university, or polytechnic or whatever it may be. Firstly, your mates will begin to look down and talk all kinds of bad things about you. Secondly, your parents will begin to feel bad, and some of your relatives ho are looking up to you. And thirdly, you will feel bad, depressed and sad about it.
Personally, when i failed my first JAMB, i thought of the alternative of leaving Nigeria 🙂 . I was am bright student in secondary school then, but come to see how i got 160 in the very first jamb i wrote in 2014. My parents were so much afraid that i may still fail the West African Examination Result (WAEC results) after they saw the outcome of the jamb result. But yet still, i had to encourage them that my failure in jamb is not a determinant of that of waec. At last, I thank God the waec results were all good, with parallel parallel Bs, an A and a C.
I took jamb the next year that come, and finally secured admission into the University of Nigeria to study Civil Engineering.
The above is my success story of how i secured admission into Nigeria University.
Today, students are finding it difficult to secure admission into higher institutions in Nigeria, even into polytechnics, monotechnics, colleges of education, and etc. And therefore, i have decided to share with you from experience how to secure admission into any higher institution of learning in Nigeria.

#1. Buy JAMB Form:
Immediately jamb released form, you should start making preparations to buy it. Get the required money and purchase the form on time.
#2. Get the Necessary materials needed for the exam:
Get jamb study materials (past question papers, jamb recommended textbooks, syllabuses, etc) for the four subjects you will be writing.
#3. Make inquiries about the school of your choice:
If you have a friend or relative, then ask them about the school. How they do their admission stuffs. You can also browse the next to see the school’s requirement before you choose them.
#4. Study the right way:
I have written an article on how to study the right way so as to help you secure admission into any institution of your choice. Remember that wrong approach to anything produces wrong results.
#5. Write the School entrance exams:
The school entrance exams do come after jamb results have been successfully released. So, make sure you write the school POST UTME. If you miss it, then forget about the admission.
#6. Zero your mind on JAMB and Post UTME Runz:
If you have been thinking that you must use jamb and post utme runz before you secure admission into higher institution, then it is time to throw away that mentality. These days of CBT has reduced the rate of expo (exam malpractice). Read and study your books well if you want to secure admission into the university.
#7. Inquire about the school cut of mark for the chosen course:
Ask other students the school cut-off marks for the chosen course. You can also search the net to get this information yourselves. This will help you to set target score for the exams (both jamb and post utme).
#8. Set a Target Score before writing the exam:
It is funny to see some candidates in my jamb whatsapp target 215 in jamb exam.. I will just be laughing at them.
You cannot fly higher like the eagle when you think like the fowls.
So, i advice you set a target of 250+ for courses that cut lower marks. For courses like the medicine, set targets like 290+. Do not say i did not tell you.
#9. Join WhatsApp Groups to meet Students who choose the same school and course:
In my time, i didn’t have a good device to access the internet which made me to be limited to knowledge. But these days, it is very much affordable and accessible. Join JAMB WhatsApp groups and get prepared for them exams. To secure admission into the higher institution in Nigeria is not an easy task.
Securing admission into higher institution is only made for the prepared
#10. Seek God through Prayers:
You may think this is the least ways on how to secure admission amongst others. God is ultimately the divine being behind our success in life. Consult Him through prayers and call upon him, then will He hear you from heave. He will wipe away your confusions ff you diligently seek him. Even with a low score, God still performs miracle. He will surely bring it to pas in your life. Amen!
