Don’t Stay At Home: See Schools To Apply Without Choosing In Jamb

Are you looking for the list of schools which can either be a university, polytechnic or a college of education that you can apply to without choosing them in JAMB? If the list of schools that offer admission without is your interest then am glad that you have found this page.


Below you are going to see the list of Universities, Polytechnics and colleges of education that you accept candidates without consideration of JAMB.

Before giving out the list of schools that offer admission without JAMB, let me first of all introduce you to why it is important that you know of such schools and why people search for such schools.

Why Look For Schools To Apply Without JAMB?

There can be lots of reasons why people search for schools they can apply without JAMB. But for the purpose of this article, we are only going to mention few of those.

Low JAMB Score

One of the major reasons why people search for the list of schools they can apply without JAMB is because of they low performance in JAMB. If one scores low in JAMB to the extent that he or she was unable to meet up with the JAMB cut off mark requirement for the school s/he applied to, the person will not be considered for admission.

Since JAMB is an annual exercise, it means the person will have to wait for one year in order to have such opportunity again. You will agree with me that waiting an extra year is quite a kinda long wait.

So, some persons because of such long wait, would also want to try out and see if they can get other schools that can accept them and offer them admission without considering their JAMB result.

Create More Admission Opportunities

Another popular reason why one may be interested in the list of schools that offer admission without JAMB can be due to the unreliable admission system in the country. Even if one scores high in JAMB and meets up with the admission cut off mark requirements; it is still not guaranteed that the person will be offered admission.

So in order for the person to increase his or her chances of been offered admission; looking for additional schools to apply to will do just that. Besides, the more opportunities the better the chances of success, right? (winks).

So now that we have established the reasons why people search for schools that accept admission without JAMB, let us properly go into the actual schools that you can apply to without JAMB.
