Does Nigerian Universities Accept Awaiting Result From JAMB Applicants?

Most Nigerian Universities accepts O'level awaiting result. Though their academic program and schedule do determine how long they will continue to wait for you.

What they always do is to give a general notice on when and how to submit your result before the admission list would be released.

Therefore, before you applied for any Nigerian University with awaiting result, you must have known how fast is their academic program. So that you wont miss the whole activities at the end of the day.

Can I Use WAEC, NECO Or NAPTEB Awaiting Result?

When we talk of O'level in Nigeria, the three recognized institutions that issue it are WAEC, NECO and NAPTEB. Therefore, if you are to apply for admission with awaiting result using any of the three above, you just have to be calculative.

  1. Using WAEC As Awaiting Result: Using WAEC as awaiting result has always been my advise for many candidates because  it has never failed them. WAEC results would be released by mid August every year, the period which most admission activities is still on in all schools. So you can use WAEC as awaiting result confidently.
  2. Using NECO As Awaiting Result: NECO is good also and consistent but the period of the release of its result is always later after WAEC. Most times it would be September ending. At this time, most fast Nigerian Universities like University of Ilorin, KWASU, UNILAG might have demanded for uploading of your result. If you are not careful, you might not meet up. Though, its good for some Universities.
  3. NAPTEB For Awaiting Result: To use NAPTEB for awaiting result, you must use NOV/DEC. otherwise you would be disappointed big time. We all know that, NAPTEB don't write their MAY/JUNE exam until after NECO which is JUNE/JULY. So don't expect the result until later days.

List Of Universities That Accept Awaiting Result In Nigeria

Almost all Nigerian Universities accepts awaiting results, but they will expect you to upload the result before you are offered admission. Gone are those days when Universities offered admission without O'level result.

Now you just have to be calculative before you applied for admission into Nigerian Universities with awaiting result.

  1. This year admission is unfair. FG would have allowed JAMB to continuing their normal way of admission process. Someone that score 192 in UTME and have five credit. In relevant subjects cannot still gain admission into university. Not even a related course. FG hurt 2016/2017 admission. The JAMB act must be amend or else, there will be war in the Educational System in Nigeria...

    1. Its as a result of policies upon policies. We hope for improvement this year. Sorry for that.
