Before we move forward, please note that University of Lagos do not accept IJMB as an entry level requirement. Don’t be fooled or scammed.


JUPEB is almost widely acceptable by most universities. It has been around for quite some time now. As a matter of fact, we have a JUPEB centre in University of Lagos. This follows through as a back up to its credibility. It’s an examination body that has government seal of approval. JUPEB was approved in December. This program was then officially announced in April 2014. As for the moderators, this program is being moderated by about ten (10) other universities with University of Lagos leading the partnership.
approved by the federal government of Nigeria in December 2013. JUPEB is officially an approved and certified body. JUPEB also runs A’ level programme.
Apart from that, JUPEB currently has study centers in almost all over the country JUPEB in her entirety was introduced to ease JAMBs admission process.

To gain admission using this method, upon confirmation of your course of study and it’s availability in UNILAG, you go further to pick up your application form. Full details on how to go about it is also on our website. Feel free to check through it or visit the nabteb a’level website for more information

JUPEB was another programmed we discussed. The process is the same with the UNILAG JUPEB we highlighted above but let’s have a quick run down of why the programme is needed.
JUPEB has proven to be efficient in terms of delivery. They have saved thousands if not millions of students the stress of going through JAMB examination yearly. As such, I will be demystifying certain misconceptions of people as regards JUPEB. I hope after reading this article, you will be enlightened the filter whatever you hear about JUPEB next time. Enough of the talk!, now let us deep dive.

1. Cost.
Some people feel JUPEB is expensive. Truth be told, the fee is a little bit high when compared to that of IJMB but what people fail to understand is the cost running JUOEB programme by the governing body ia quite high. Expenses incurred to make students and applicants comfortable is high and this is due to JUPEB’s aim at giving just the best to students and applicants. With whatever you are paying, you get value for your money in full measures.

2. Studentship
Another misconception is that people feel JUPEB is an institution where working certificates are issued. This is a general misconception. JUPEB is rather a body responsible for A’ level programme which could help secure you admission into university of your choice. As a matter of fact, this program is coordinated, majorly by the University Of Lagos. It has never being an institution where years of study is being sent. Reason for this misconception is largely due to JUPEB’s way of handling students. JUPEB through its critical and careful handling of students prepare them for live on the campus. This makes it easy for student settle in without hassles. JUPEB has really proven to help quite a lot settle in at the various universities. JUPEB is not a university. Please take note

3. Working Certificate
Another set of people have this belief that with JUPEB certificate, you are qualified for certain job positions. That is a big fat lie. JUPEB certification has never been a requirement to fill a certain job position. JUPEB certificate is solely used to secure 200L admission into tertiary institution that accepts it as an entry level requirement


4. Learning Environment
I wouldn’t blame anyone for feeling JUPEB lack conducive environment fir learning but rather blame students who goes to unverified sources to take JUPEB application form. Quite a lot of people or entity now parade themselves as authorized JUPEB centers. This is where applicants get it wrong. To enjoy the full benefits of JUPEB as a program, you have to go through verified sources , our organization for instance. We are a verified source and registering with us guarantees you all the benefits that is accrued to JUPEB. We have had hundreds of testimonies and trust ne, no negativity for once because we always give absolute all to our clients. You can contact us on 0810 508 7367 (WhatsApp or Call), typically, we reply all enquiries within 10 minutes.

5. Zero Concentration Level
This boils down to the same thing we made mention above. Distractions comes I different form but when you register with us, be assured there is nothing like distraction. We give 100 % attention to.our students. We have different people from different background and coexistence is a thing in all of our centers. Strict and adequate measures are pit in place to ensure there are no distractions of any sort across our centers

6. Excessive Lectures
A lot feels JUPEB lectures are usually too much. This is not so as only what you need are being taught. Our center for instance have classes scheduled periodically in a way to accommodate everyone irrespective of your background. For our JUPEB program, there are scheduled breaks as well. All these are put in place in order not to choke or discomfort any of our applicant. We guarantee you a run for your money.

7. Difficulty In Examination
Is JUPEB so hard to pass? I laughed out loud when someone asked me this. As far as I am concerned, JUPEB has proven to be lifesaver to a lot of students. JUPEB program is easy to pass and that is a fact. JUPEB has recorded over 70% success for student over the past years. So yes, JUPEB examinations are not difficult to pass.


Another programme was the Amhadu Bellow University and KWASU Diploma Programmes. We listed the courses, requirements and how to go about it. You can check through our page for the Ahmadu Bello article. Ahmadi Bellow was explicitly explained but since we still have some areas to touch about the KWASU programme, let’s summarise the KWASU diploma programme.


The governing body of KWASU introduced KWASU Diploma Programme in Information and communication technology and KWASU Foundation Diploma Programme to give students alternative means for tertiary admissions in Kwara State University. Also, it was designed to equipped students with necessary business and information skills for end produce efficiency

KWASU Diploma Programme in Information and communication technology: All that you Need To Know

As discussed in the introductory paragraph, the KWASU Diploma Programme in Information and Communication Technology program was primarily introduced to sort the problems fazed by advanced information technology as well as mass communication and business technologies. KWASU Diploma Programme in Information and communication technology provides extensive knowledge and skills in the information technology (IT). To put into context, it provides students extensive knowledge about business. KWASU Diploma Programme in Information and communication technology provides you with the expertise to perform in high level specific areas.

We also discussed NABTEB and it’s significance. Let us summarise the significance of the programme in briefly also.


Because of lack of popularity, many are of the opinion that NABTEB has no significance at any level. Well, I understand that lack of adequate information might have led to you weightless conclusion. That being said, I will be explaining the significance of NABTEB and how it can facilitate your admission into 200L in your preferred institution.

With any of the NABTEB A-Level programme, you are getting more than you paid for i.e. you are getting value for your money. Why? This is because as a successful NABTEB A-level applicant, you are automatically seen as a technician graduate. With this alone, you are qualified to get employed directly into any junior-level position otherwise known as level 5 across technical areas.


Also, with any of the NABTEB A ‘level certificates, you are avail with the opportunity to further gain admission into any of your preferred tertiary institution so far they accept NABTEB A ‘level as an entry requirement. NABTEB A ‘level certificate is accepted widely across specified university or institution in Nigeria. Another perk to the NABTEB A’evel prgramme is that you are automatically admitted into 200L in your proffered institution.

NOTE: Only business or technical related courses are can be processed using the NABTEB A ‘level certificate. This course ranges from Accounting, Banking & Finance, Architecture, Quantity Surveying, Financial management courses and so on



Important things to note about Cambridge A ‘levels in Nigeria:

Cambridge A’ level in Nigeria is approved by the federal government of Nigeria. Interestingly, the federal government of Nigeria has a dedicated platform for applicants to ease securing admission into the university both home and abroad.


This programme is certified by the Nigeria University Commission (NUC). Cambridge A ‘Levels has the seal of Nigerian University Commission as it qualifies student to secure admission into tertiary institution through direct entry.

Success Rate
According to statistics, Cambridge accepts about 21,000 applications every year and about they record about 70% success rate. This implies that as an applicant, you are guaranteed about 70% chance of success and admission into Universities of your choice provided they take Cambridge as an entry requirement. Also, you have to read and pass well in your Cambridge examinations.


Applicants for Cambridge A ‘levels are required to choose any three A level Cambridge Subjects combination as related to their potential course of study. Also, you are required to to general subject- English language to go with the subject combination.

Furthermore, Candidates are then being taken through extensive teaching and tutoring for a specific period of time in selected approved Cambridge A’ level study centers. At the final stages of the extensive lectures, candidates are then subjected to an examination which you are expected to pass. Upon completion, Candidates can then progress in making use of their Cambridge A ‘levels to secure admissions into 200l across various Universities in Nigeria though JAMB direct entry.


Finally, we discussed admission into universities with low JAMB score as well as gaining admission into schools you did not choose. We even went further to shed light on admissions with JAMB as that is our forte. All of this have been summarized above and I hope you, the reader have been really equipped. Stay glued to out blog and share this information to your friends and family.
