Will Direct Entry (DE) Candidates Write UTME/Post-DE?

DE registration slip
JAMB DE candidates are now required to write UTME or any DE exams like their UTME sisters and brothers. However, they may not be subjected to the same set of questions or the exam may not be held at the same time. More so, some universities will still conduct entrance exams and screening (Post-DE) for DE applicants.

If you want to know more, read on.

Generally, as a DE applicant, you must have completed your NCE, ND, IJMB, JUPEB, Cambridge A’level, NABTEB A’level, BSc, or HND. This is the basis to qualify for obtaining the DE form.

So, if you’ve completed any of these programs, chances are you wrote JAMB UTME before being offered admission in the first place. Hence, you're already familiar with the JAMB CBT which you will be tested with, again, going for the direct entry admission.

JAMB Gives Me A Literature Book to Read After DE CBT

For some years now, JAMB has been giving the reading text to DE applicants - right after their registrations are completed at CBT centers. And when that is not given, you can download it from the official website. The essence of this novel is to prepare for the related questions in the test of English.

Will All Universities Conduct Post DE for their Candidates?

Yes and No. Not all universities do that of course.

For example, UNILORIN, UNIBEN, Adeyemi College of Education, Tai Solarin University, Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA), LAUTECH, etc are a few universities that conduct entrance exams for Direct Entry applicants.

Whereas, Obafemi Awolowo University, University of Lagos, University of Ibadan, Osun State University, Lagos State University, Federal University of Oye Ekiti, Ekiti State University, UNIMAID, UNIPORT, etc are a few of the universities that don’t stress you for any exams as a DE applicant. They only admit DE candidates based on their O’level and A’level (ND, NCE, JUPEB, IJMB, etc) results.

RecommendedCan I Do JAMB Regularization Twice?


It's certain that DE applicants won't write UTME (be it a computer-based test or otherwise), yet they're to prepare for post-DE exams except their proposed schools don't use entrance exams for their candidates - especially DE.
