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 no longer a scratch card like before. Now the procedures are the same with that of JAMBITE. It also uses banks as distributors of the PIN which you have to pay through remitta for wider coverage..
Therefore, just like UTME, direct entry form is also not what you will buy in any school. You must buy it in banks or JAMB offices 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.
