What Exactcly is Jamb Direct Entry?

Direct Entry is a mode of entry into any Nigerian University that gives the individual the priviledge of starting from the 200 level department of the university they chose.

unlike, the popular admission when sstudents obtain UTME and sit for the Jamb/Post utme, the student will only gain admission into 100 level department of their course.

on the other hand, if the student gets the direct entry form and subsequently gains admission, he/she is expected to begin from 200 level academical sesion.

However, this depends on the entry qualification you used to gain admission.
