2017/2018 Direct Entry Form, Closing Date, Submission Of Transcripts & Post UTME

2017/2018 Direct Entry Form, Closing Date, Submission Of Transcripts & Post UTME
There are a lot of things applicants don't really know about direct entry (DE) application process. Some of them find it difficult to know which Universities in Nigeria accepts lower credit for direct entry, which University does not conduct post UTME for direct entry applicants, they don't know which Universities needed transcripts to process their admission and some don't even know how direct entry form is sold with the closing date.


That's why questions like when is Uniben, Unilag, Unilorin, Udus, Futminna direct entry form closing date? When is LASU direct entry form coming out, when is Unizik direct entry form coming out and closing date? Does FUTMINNA, FUTA, FUTO conduct post UTME for direct entry and should I submit my transcript for them as a direct entry students?

The above are just few of the hundreds of questions usually been asked by direct entry applicants. With this post, I will try as much as possible to answer these questions in order to serve as a guide to those who may be in need of this.

When is 2017/2018 Direct entry (DE) Form Will be on Sale?

Direct entry form for 2017/2018 academic session will be on sale on 23rd April 2017. Currently UTME applicants are undergoing their registration. Direct entry registration is expected to commence by 23rd April 2017.

2017/2018 Direct Entry Form Closing Date
Let start with this. As we all know, Jamb has not yet rolled out the officials sale of 2017/2018 direct entry form therefore we may not be able to tell the closing date. Usually, direct entry form do close by JULY or early August.

Do You Know? All Direct Entry Applicants Are Now To Write Entrance Test? Read HERE


How much Is Direct Entry Form for 2017/2018

Since the form is not out, we won't be able to tell you the precise amount that you are to reserve for 2017/2018 diect entry. Though, in most cases, the price for direct entry is always a bit higher than that of UTME. We can therefore conclude that, since UTME 2017 is N5000, Direct entry form could be sold for N6500 or N7000.

The Reason Why You Don't Need To Wait For Direct Entry Closing Date

Apart from the fact that the form is yet to be out, it may not stay long before it close, you also have to obtain your direct entry form so fast before JAMB will close the application portal.. 

Am I To Submit Transcript To My University As A Direct Entry Student?

The sincere thing is that, Universities in Nigeria have diverse principles when it comes to submission of transcripts as a direct entry applicant to process your admission.
Schools like University of Ilorin, Usman Danfodio University, KWASU, ABU, BUK and others does not require you to submit transcript as a direct entry applicant. While schools like OAU and others, requires it.

Therefore, in order for you to be sure of what to do in that regards, whenever the post UTME date of your school is out, the university will categorically state it that you should submit your transcripts to a particular address within the school. In case your school is silent about this, then you don't need to submit any academic transcript. 


General Knowledge About Direct Entry In Nigerian Universities

Let me inform you that direct entry form is a scratch card made and sold by Jamb. It also uses banks as distributors for wider coverage and constant availability of the card.


Therefore, just like UTME direct entry form is also not what you will go and buy in any school. You must buy it in banks or jamb office and fill it online to choose your university of choice. You can choose Unilorin, Unilag, UI, Udus, ABU and any other school you want in Nigeria.


Don't send money to any one who may deceive you that the form is currently selling DE form. The only thing you will do in the school is to register for their post UTME if required by the school for admission.

I hope this helps?
