According to the minister for education, the admission criteria set by FG for unity schools is as follows:

  • National merit or the cut off mark would take 60%, equality of state 30%, and other factors 10%
  • Candidates who apply for schools outside their state of origin would be given priority

It is also worthy to let you know that each Federal Government Secondary Schools are more competitive than the other. King’s College, Queen’s College, FGCS Benin, FGCS Akure, etc. are among the best federal secondary schools in Nigeria and are highly competitive. This is so because of the performance of the students in WASSCE and national competitions. Also the volume of applicants seeking JSS 1 admission into the schools is high.
