    1. Actually the issue is not the form/GP rather the competition in our universities. They don’t admit DE students in universities like Jambite. So i can only advice you to go for Jamb or go for less competitive institution and course, that might give you a chance to be consider. Thanks

        1. In 2017, UDUS didn’t conduct exam for DE and UTME candidates. It depends on the University if they will like the DE to write exams but in most cases they don’t.

    1. Five SSCE credit passes in Government or History, English Language and three other subjects. At least a pass in Mathematics is required. This is UDU Requirement

    1. Below is the criteria for DE into Medicine and Surgery
      (i) ‘A’ level passes in Physics, Chemistry and Biology or Zoology in addition to UTME requirements.
      (ii) BSC, BOS, etc in relevant fields.
