9 Unbelievable Tips to Gain Admission in Nigeria no matter what!

9 Unbelievable Tips to Gain Admission in Nigeria no matter what!

In Nigeria, if 1000 students apply for admission only a 100 will be selected! Well, that’s conclusive! But look here; I am about to show you 9 unbelievable tips on how to gain admission no matter what.

Come on, let’s have a bit of fun; Close your eyes for three minutes. Hey, I mean it, do that! Now, while your eyes are closed, just imagine where you would be five years from now.

Omg! I don’t know how to feel right now; eventually, hundreds of people reading this in five years time will live a life whereby they will have to struggle to make a penny or put food on their table.

Isn’t that enough to feel sad? I am not actually wishing failure for you, but that’s the harsh truth that cannot be covered.

While a little percent of people reading this will actually succeed and make good names, I am talking about doctors, presidents, pilots, engineers, and so much more lucrative professions.

The simple logic about the above phenomenon, whereby a larger percentage of people will not achieve real success, and a little percent will achieve success is;

  • Majority of people are not willing to make sacrifices and patiently climb the mountain of success, instead, they wish for a shorter route to make money.
  • On the other hand, a minority will do whatever it takes to achieve success, that is why they have to struggle to gain admission first into the University.

If you’re reading this, then your curiosity on how to gain admission no matter what is proof that you actually want a life long-term success. Education can never be disregarded, getting a University degree is quite important than you think.

To be a professional in your field you must be educated. So, it’s all down to why you need to worry about gaining admission in Nigeria.

That is why you have this beautiful topic sitting in your front, and as an inspired writer who cares about the success of people in the world, I am about to show you how to gain admission no matter what, in any University in Nigeria.

Does that sound cool? Alright, let’s ride on.

As a quest to provide educational and reliable guides in wisemaji, I deemed it paramount to iron this topic since your success is our goal. You see, just one day I am going to share all the guides you need to achieve all your life goals, but obviously, I cannot hide the fact.

Earning a degree is the first step for success, remember there are certainly different kinds of life success. But I am referring to that which will adorably land you that dream you have been envisaging. So, without further ado let me share 9 unbelievable tips to gain admission in Nigeria.

 

Preparing for admission into a Nigerian university

1. To gain admission in Nigeria, think about what is required and provide it.

One thing about life is; ” Success is not hereditary, and failure is not genetic.”

To achieve ‘success’ you must be ready to work for it. In order words to gain admission in Nigeria, you must be ready to do the needful.

The difference between those securing admission and those not securing admission is that, those who secure the admission work harder for it, while others try to manipulate it. The truth is, admission in Nigeria is survival of the fittest if you perform well by providing the requirements for admission, then no witchcraft can stop you from gaining admission.

The basic requirements for admission in Nigerian are!

  • Score very high in Jamb (above cut off mark)

The joint admission and matriculation board examination is the most acceptable means of qualification to gain admission in Nigeria.

However, there are other acceptable qualifications via direct entry such as Jupeb, Ijmb, Nce, Ond, and Hnd.

As of 2019, these are the major qualifications to gain admission in Nigeria.

  • Score high in Post Utme:

Majority of Nigerian Universities, but not all requires students to get a certain score in post utme examination.

See this: How to pass Post UTME

  • Get a good O’level result.

According to Osas Divine Blog statistics on how to gain admission in Nigeria, O’level result is one of the top requirement for gaining admission.

Here is a graphical analysis of factors that determine admission in Nigeria.

2. Apply to a University where you know someone:

Assistance really counts these days as a medium of gaining admission in Nigeria, if your qualification is not that high enough to beat the admission competition in Nigeria, then maybe knowing a friend or a relative can ace your admission no matter what. If you don’t know anyone you can still gain admission, just follow the other tips below.

Most lecturers and deans in some Nigerian Universities get special admission spots that they can give to anyone. If you can find one, then your quest for admission in Nigeria would be granted.

3. Choose less Competitive courses:

Most Nigerian institution have specific cut-off marks that students must meet before gaining admission.

The cut-off mark for most courses are high while some are low, apply for the least competitive course and you will certainly gain admission.

Here are Five less competitive course to consider that are very lucrative.\

  • Agriculture
  • Marketing
  • Veterinary Medicine
  • Educational Causes
  • Languages

Not only are they less competitive but if gain admission to study this course, your end goal will be undoubtedly unbelievable.

4. Apply for the less Competitive Universities.

In order to gain admission no matter what; come rain come shine. You have to apply for an institution you know you will surely get admission at.

If you are still struggling with one University for years, then it’s time to change.

A larger percent of Nigerian federal institutions are all respected when it comes to Jobs seeking.

Few out of them are not very difficult to gain admission into, just apply when you have all the requirements above, and you will definitely gain admission.

5. Apply to a university in your catchment area:

In Nigeria, the federal government has selected some primary states for each University, the student from these states are entitled to admission no matter the circumstance unless they do not meet the requirement.

I have faith on your behalf that you will obviously meet the requirements.

But the ball is in your court to play.

Please when seeking for admission in Nigeria choose a University where you belong to the catchment of which I know your admission cannot be denied, it is very important.

6. Have a long-term goal and vision:

Remember how we started this guide, the point I shared about the majority of people failing and the minority passing.

Well, if you dream of success you need to have a long-term goal.

If you have a goal where you include that you must achieve your university degree at a specific time, then I believe you will work towards achieving that goal, no matter how tough things get in the long run.

If you haven’t any goal yet, it’s time to draw one. Good goals keep you on track and ahead of others.

7. Be hopeful and keep believing for success:

There is one thing that attracts success, it’s faith. Believe in yourself and you will see things working fine.

If you have doubts about success or gaining admission then success will not come to you.

Faith is the magnet to success, not just believe but pray along and whatever you desire you will achieve.

You can desire to gain admission in Nigeria for years but never get it, the day you will start believing in yourself and putting things in prayer, believe me, you will gain admission to study the best course and one day you will be a great person.

8. Don’t follow wrong advice or tune in to wrong information.

There’re many agents and tools of confusion about securing admission in Nigeria.

Most people will tell you it is difficult and most people will give you advice that does not count.

Perhaps, the majority of educational bloggers in Nigeria pass wrong information, and they actually know nothing about gaining admission, just to gain attention.

Be careful where you get information and seek advice. Most information you will get will mislead you.

9. Seek for more admission guides:

Finally, I want to draw the cotton to a close by introducing “Osas Divine Blog”
