Universities That Accept Lower Credit For Direct Entry

In our previous post,we informed you that JAMB Direct Entry Admission Form/Scratch Card Is Out – 2018/2019 Now I know that some interested applicants will be asking if there are some universities that accept lower credit?

What you should bear in mind is that not everyone is going to make distinction or upper credit in polytechnics, and that doesn’t mean they won’t obtain Direct Entry form for University, I decided to compile the list of some University the accept lower credit.

Here Are List Of Universities That Accept Lower Credit In Direct Entry

  1. All private universities – you may need upper credit for some courses.
  2. Ekiti State University (EKSU), Ado-Ekiti
  3. University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN)
  4. Osun State University (UNIOSUN)
  5. Ahmadu Bello University (ABU)
  6. Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University formerly Anambra State University (ANSU)
  7. University of Calabar (UNICAL)
  8. University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID)
  9. Usman Dan Fodio University Sokoto (UDUSOK)
  10. Niger Delta University, NDU, Wilberforce
  11. Enugu State University of Science and Technology, ESUT
