Admission process

There are at least three means of getting admitted into the University of Nigeria, admission could be either through UTME (jamb), direct entry or the post graduate school. For this article I would focus on the UTME admission process in UNN.

The university of Nigeria Nsukka usually conducts her post-utme examination exercise for candidates who score above the jamb cut off mark for their course of choice between August and September of every year. Candidates are divided into various batches depending on course and faculty. All candidates who are able to score above the stipulated cut-off marks in jamb and are eligible for the post-utme exams are advised to keep in touch with current information being updated in the universities website to know the batch they fall into, date and time of their examination and what they are to come with to the examination venue.

Assessment is carried out via the computer based test (CBT) method.
