The Processes of Admission into Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria

Education in Nigeria is governed by laws. Everything has its ways and processes. We all know what is required of any student who wants to advance from one stage to another.

Like I said, there is no confusion anywhere, every stage in the process of the Nigeria education has it distinctive protocols which must be recognized.

This article is mainly concerned about the stages students are made to pass through into the tertiary institutions. SSCE is a must, we all know that. WAEC, NECO and NABTEB are the three recognized SSCE examination bodies. Every secondary school leaver must at least attempt one of them and perform well if he/she must further. It is good to let us know that NABTEB actually belongs to the technical schools. It is equivalent to other O, level certificates.

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is established to bridge the space between the secondary school and the higher institutions. JAMB directly tests the students in line with the proposed course of study of each of them.

Moreover, only JAMB has the right to give admission. Anyway, the tertiary institutions are at liberty to screen the candidates that JAMB has sent to them. JAMB moderates all the admissions into the tertiary institutions.

Meanwhile, some tertiary institutions may employ Post Jamb for their screening why few others screen the SSCE results of the candidates. However, the O, level results and the JAMB scores are very important. Candidates who have the required grades in the SSCE and score the JAMB cut-off mark have a better chances of getting admission.
