A'level Programs That Don't Require JAMB

Just recently, Lagos State University produced the best graduates with 5.0 GPA. Aminat Yusuf broke the record that has stood firm for 40 years.

While the world was celebrating our champ, news surfaced. Fatima didn't write JAMB to gain admission She never wrote JAMB? How possible, you asked?

Well, it's possible. Although there are several ways to gain admission without JAMB, the option she used was the A'level. A'level programs give you the opportunity to gain admission to a university without JAMB UTME and most importantly directly to the 200 level.

Let's explore this A'level thing and see if it's the right option for you.

What's A'level Program?

A-level are courses meant to prepare students for university before they're admitted. Unlike pre-degree programs, they rigorously groom you for the best part of university academics which is the certainty that you are fit and ready to continue at the 200-level of your intended course.

A'level students typically sit for examinations at the end of the one-year or two-year A-Level course, which are administered by external examination boards such as the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), or the Assessment and Qualifications Alliance (AQA), Interim Joint Matriculation Board Examination (IJMBE), Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB), or the university administrating the program e.g. Diploma.

Available A'level Programs in Nigeria

While it's the truth that not all universities in Nigeria that are accepting them (as some may accept or run one and not the other), below is the list of available A'level programs in Nigeria.

  1. Cambridge International A-Level e.g. University of Ibadan, Federal University Abeokuta
  2. West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) A-Level
  3. General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE)
  4. Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB)
  5. International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program
  6. Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC) A-Level
  7. School-Owned Diploma Program

In the case of LASU's best-graduating student, the school-owned diploma was her choice.

In her words,

I did a diploma in law. I finished with 4.98 over 5.0 in my diploma. The diploma is like a two-year program where you get to do compulsory law courses. So, I did not gain admission through JAMB (UTME), I did direct entry. I did a diploma in law.

Similar to her story was the tale of Emmanuela Ilok, Oreoluwa Moradeyo, Uwadiae Guobadia, and Kosisochukwu Okoye of Greensprings School Lagos who passed outstandingly in the  International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE). 

These guys are not only going to be seeking admission into the 200-level without the need to write JAMB, but they also stand a 100% chance to school abroad if they want to consider that option. Who wouldn't especially on scholarships? 

While the diploma is not common among universities again, you have IJMB and JUPEB as the most common among our universities, especially in the southwest. The likes, of FUOYE and many northern universities, still retain their Diploma programs.

To this end, if you're ready for any of these A'level programs, just find out the schools that offer them, the number of years it takes to complete the programs, cost implication and most importantly make sure you do the program with the university that.

When Done With A'level Programs...

Many students choose to apply to universities and pursue a bachelor's degree in a field of their choice. Your A-Level results will be a key factor in university admissions, and you can apply to universities both in Nigeria and abroad (for those accepted internationally).

  1. Those acceptable outside Nigeria include:
  2. Cambridge International A-Level
  3. General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE)
  4. Edexcel International Advanced Level
  5. International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program

If you go for IJMB, JUPEB, or a school-owned diploma, your best chance is to seek admission into any accepting or participating universities in Nigeria

You can use your result at any university accepting the program. However, it's easier to gain admission into the same university where you had the course or result.

A-Level programs provide an alternative pathway to gain admission to universities in Nigeria without having to write the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) examination. These programs, such as Cambridge International A-Level, IJMB, JUPEB, and school-owned diploma programs, offer rigorous academic study and are widely recognized by universities both within Nigeria and internationally. 

Students who successfully complete A-Level programs can directly enter university at the 200 level, bypassing the JAMB UTME and gaining an advantage in terms of academic preparation.

The success stories of students like Aminat Yusuf and the Greensprings School Lagos students highlight the opportunities and possibilities that A-Level programs can offer.
