Have you ever thought of the easiest Universities to gain admission in Nigeria? If yes, then you should not be shy, there are thousands of JAMBites searching for the less competitive universities in Nigeria.

There are thousands of candidates sick of not getting admitted because they are seeking admission into some of the Most Competitive Universities in Nigeria. After getting rejected even with their high JAMB result, good Waec grades and high Post-UTME score, they are eager to apply for admission into an institution where they stand a chance of being admitted after sitting for the JAMB examination.

If you want to get admitted this year, there are certain tertiary institutions you should avoid. I am not saying you’re not intelligent, but the competitiveness is way too much, even for the least course.

According to the current statistics released by JAMB tagged the Most sought-After Universities, most candidates who apply for admission into over-competitive Universities like Uniport, UNILORIN, UNILAG, UNIBEN end up disappointed and not getting admitted.

Getting admitted into any University in Nigeria is not easy. But before seeking admission into any Nigerian tertiary institution, there are other important things that should be in place first.

First, you need to score high in the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) or the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), especially in the Waec Subject combination of your course.

Then, you can continue by preparing for the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board- Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) or Direct Entry (DE) examination.

The truth is that there are no easy ways to get admitted in Nigeria Universities, but there are easy Universities you can get admitted in when compared to other popular ones.

Getting admitted into Nigerian Universities is a bit frustrating, as many candidates in Nigeria seeking admission into Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges of education, needs better O’level grades, high JAMB results and in some cases, high Post UTME scores.

So, instead of applying or seeking for admission into these over-competitive Universities, why not try these other universities that are less competitive and can offer you a better chance of getting admitted?
