Universities Accepting NCE holders for Accounting

As a graduate of the Nigerian Certificate in Education (NCE), you may want to consider Accounting in your Direct Entry admission into a university

Usually, NCE holders are easily considered for admission into Education courses through the JAMB Direct entry form into any universities offering the same or related courses. However, there are a few other universities that will offer you courses such as Accounting; which is a non-education course.

Meanwhile, NCE applicants seeking DE admissions for Accounting will have to satisfy certain requirements. He or she, among other things, must:

  1. have studied the same or a related course while in the college of education
  2. have obtained a competitive grade (though some universities still accept lower grades)
