A lot of readers have been asking on what to do now that they are done with their JUPEB programme and obtained the certificate, thus, I have decided to write about the subject matter.
This steps are tailored for the 2018/2019 admission seekers
For candidates who have already applied for JAMB direct entry form, one of the most crucial things to do is to upload your grades to your Direct entry (DE) portal since you applied with “awaiting result“.
Enter your grades and submit your result photocopy to the JAMB office where applicable. This will enable you to have a corresponding details on both JAMB and chosen institution databases. Please note that all JUPEB candiates are expected to obtain the JAMB DE form before JAMB closes her portal even before their result is released as to enable them gain admission. If you are yet to obtain the DE form, please click here to see how to obtain DE form for JUPEB candidates.
Now upload your grades / scores to the portal of your selected institutions. If you have applied for DE screening at any university and probably done the exam, kindly upload your JUPEB grades to the university’s portal asap. Please note that their is always a strict and limited time frame to do this. Thus I advise you to follow up with the admission updates of your selected institution to know when exactly they open portal for candidates with awaiting result and the deadline for this. ( Currently, UNILORIN portal is opened for DE candidates to upload their results) please do this asap!
If you have scored lesser than the required JUPEB cut off points for the course you earlier applied for before you saw your JUPEB result, kindly do a change of course. How do I Know which course to change to? SEE: JUPEB cut off marks for courses, departments and institution. That post should help you find a course.
Change your selected institution where applicable. Should you score lesser than the admission requirements of your selected institution, change from such institution to another one that accepts your score. Also if you missed the post utme screening of your selected institution or failed the post utme (DE Screening exam) kindly apply for change of institution.
TIPS: It is very easy to gain admission via DE to private and state university than federal schools.
Wait For Admission
Once you have observed any of the above steps, wait for your admission. While waiting for DE admission, ensure you are fully updated with relevant admission news of your chosen university. Some universities send admission notification via sms while others do via email. Ensure you check your email regularly and also visit the website of the institution.
