Getting university admission is the dream of many a secondary school graduate irrespective of the persons academic inclination.
However, this has remained a herculean task as UTME often constitutes almost an unsurmountable barrier to a lot of admission seekers. Therefore, some of these admission seekers ask questions like:
Is there a substitute for UTME?
Is it possible to get admission into the university without UTME?
Is it possible to get into 200 level in the university without going through 100 level?
The answer to each of the questions above is a capital YES. The solution is IJMB/JUPEB.
In Economics, substitute goods are defined as two alternative goods that could be used for the same purpose. In this context, the purpose is getting university admission.
Although the popular rout is to go through UTME yet smart candidates can also go through Direct Entry (DE). This means that such candidates will get admission without UTME. So DE becomes the substitute for UTME. However, it is not just a substitute but it also gives the candidates opportunity of 200 level admission.
ADVANTAGES OF IJMB/JUPEB
- It saves time because it affords you the chance of DE while you spend nine months on the program.
- Its result does not expire. Thus you can use it years after you have passed it unlike UTME, which is valid for just only a year.
- It increases your chances of gaining admission.
- It has a well-defined syllabus which prepares you adequately for the academic rigours of the university.
- IJMB has Mathematics & English Language O’level for anyone with deficiency in those two subjects. HOW TO GAIN ADMISSION USING IJMB
