You will probably agree that some of the universities listed here are some of the hardest Nigerian universities to gain admission.
Especially if you’ve been disappointed by JAMB a couple of times.
It’s either their incredibly “high cut-off marks” or “lack of connection” which makes these schools some of the hardest Nigerian universities to gain admission.
Here is a list of 10 of the hardest Nigerian Universities to gain Admission.
University of Ibadan (UI)
The University of Ibadan continues to remain one of the most sought-after universities by JAMB Candidates according to JAMB statistics.
The University is one of the oldest non-profit Universities in Nigeria. The institution which was established in 1948 and was formerly known as the University College boasts of a student population of 35,000 students.
One of the main reasons why the University is one of the hardest Nigerian universities to gain admission into is largely due to a large number of applicants, the cut off for courses in the school are set at a high score which some might find unattainable.
As it is with most popular public Universities in Nigeria, “You need to have connections” to get in and the University of Ibadan is no exception.
University Of Lagos (UNILAG)
UNILAG is one among many Nigerian Universities that are extremely tough to get in. The University Of Lagos has many aspirants from year to year, which explains its highly selective method of admitting students.
Apart from being one of the hardest university to get into, it is probably the most popular University in Nigeria hence, the high number of applicants.
Like the previously mentioned University above, you need a lot of connection to get into this school and you need to be careful of “people who say they have connection” to get you in, you just might fall into the hands of scams.
And end up finding yourself writing Jamb all over again after getting kicked out in 100 level.
Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU)
