Different schools with different requirements and the level of competitions also differ for each school.

I will try to look at some of the sought after schools by students.

The suggestion below is ENTIRELY THE OPINION of the writer. I am just trying to discuss what you need to do to give you some level of advantage or hedge over other students to secure admission in any of the institutions.


University of Nigeria Nsukka

This is one of the institutions that students like to choose as their first choice to study Medicine and Surgery, Nursing, Pharmacy, Electrical engineering, Mechanical engineering, Civil engineering, e.t.c. It is important that your WASSCE results must be relatively okay: you must have at least Mathematics (B), English(B), Chemistry(B), Biology(B), Physics(B) and any other subject for your chances to be relatively high. This means that you must sit tight and prepare very well for your WASSCE. Your preparation must start now.



Medicine and Surgery

UTME subject: Physics, Chemistry, and Biology.

O/level: UNN accepts Physics with Chemistry (as a single subject) for Physics and Chemistry. UNN requirements should be at one sitting.


Electrical, Mechanical, Civil Engineering, Agricultural and Bioresources Engineering

UTME score: I advise students to aim at scoring above 250 for you to have good standing. This isn’t the cut-off mark but just the opinion of the writer.

UTME subject: Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics.

O/level: UNN requires five O’ level credit passes to include, Physics, Chemistry Mathematics, in not more than two sittings.



O/level result: Five ‘O’ level credit passes to include English Language, Literature in English. UNN does not require mathematics and does not accept Fine Art or Local languages.

UTME subject: UNN requires Literature in English plus any two (2) subjects.



UNN requires Five ‘O’ level credit passes in English Language, Mathematics, Economics and two other relevant subjects at WASC or GCE ‘O’ level.


UTME subjects: any of Government, History, Geography, Lit-in-English, French and CRK/IRK.

Direct entry: one of Mathematics, Statistics, Geography, Physics, Chemistry, Agric Science, Accounting, Business Management, History and Government.


Computer science

O/level: UNN requires five O’ level credit passes to include Mathematics, English Language, Physics and any two from Chemistry, Biology/Agricultural Science and Economics.


UTME subject: Mathematics, Physics and one of Biology, Chemistry, Agric Science, Economics and Geography. UNN does not accept Agricultural Science.


Direct entry: UNN – Direct Entry into Computer Science is four years but for combined courses is three years.



Admission into the University of Nigeria Nsukka is purely on MERIT. If you have a good result in your WASSCE, UTME and Cambridge ‘A LEVEL’ for the direct entry students, you will definitely be offer an admission.



For students interested in writing Cambridge A level, you have a great task ahead. Though the task isn’t difficult as some students perceive it to be, You must target AT LEAST 15 points: AAB. My advice to students has been to target 16 points (AAA) for them to be in a very good position. Cambridge A level will enable you to secure admission into 200 level in any institution of your choice. It is also an avenue to strengthen your academic muscles.
