Universities Accepting Lower Credit for Direct Entry (DE) - Accounting

I had earlier warned applicants for UTME and DE to dedicate the earlier time of seeking admission to studying JAMB Brochure in order to avoid errors. Sometimes, I’ll be quick to tell admission seekers that direct entry applicants need the brochure more than the UTME applicants. Why? There are more conditions attached to their entries than the latter.

This takes us to DE applicants who may want to proceed for admission using Lower Credit or Merit.


Background of Direct Entry (DE) Admission

My recent post has given enough details about Direct Entry and those who are qualified for it. But for the sake of reference here, DE is meant for holders of National Diploma (ND), National Certificate of Education (NCE), IJMB, JUPEB, NABTEB and Cambridge A’levels. Applicants for DE may also include the Bsc and HND holders who want o proceed to universities for their previous course or related ones.

In short, this guide only concerns the holders of the qualifications listed above.

The concern of this post is to guide applicants on various universities offering accounting that accept Lower Credit, Lower grade, merit etc for their admissions. In case the university you're looking for is not here, it means their conditions of admission, according to the brochure, is not accepting lower credit or grade.

The post will add schools that accept NCE, ICA, IJMB, ACA etc for Accounting in universities and more.

Important Notice

  • Most universities decide the fates of lower grades applicants based on the demand for spaces in the current admission year. Hence, the higher the demand for this course, the lower the chances of the lower grades applicants.
  • HND graduates with lower credit and Bsc holders can be more favoured in this regard. And more so, some universities have the policy which can give HND/Bsc applicants 300 level admission instead of 200 level. Applicants may approach the school admission office for such chances.
