JUPEB Program And How It Works
This question is part of the many questions asked by UTME students. Today I will take out time to explain all you need to know about JUPEB, including all the Universities that offers the program.
What Is JUPEB
JUPEB simply means Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB). It is a national examinations body approved by the Federal Government of Nigeria in December 2013. It was formally established in April 2014 by a consortium of ten (10) partnering universities led by the University of Lagos.
It is the acronym Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board, It is an Approved, Proven & Certified Advanced level programme moderated by the University Of Lagos and having the coordinating body in various tertiary institutions and different study centres nationwide. The programme is specifically designed to provide an opportunity for candidates who cannot gain admission to regular degree programmes in Nigerian Universities for one reason or the other, as the programme only requires candidates O’level results, JAMB result, Also awaiting result candidate can Enrol and this time around into 200 level
•JUPEB IS Approved: By the Federal Government has a platform for securing admission into a higher institution in the country and abroad.
• JUPEB IS Proven: Yearly, about 20,000 applicants put in for the programme in which more than 70% fraction successfully secure admission with it into 200 level to their preferred institution & course.
• JUPEB IS Certified: By Nigeria University Commission (NUC) has an Advanced level examination that qualifies students into 200level via JAMB
HOW JUPEB WORKS: Prospective JUPEB candidates are required to select any THREE (3) A/L JUPEB Subject Combination plus General studies (English Language) identified with their preferred course of study in the university be it Science, Art or Social Science Course.
Candidates would then be lectured for the stipulated period at their respective Study Centre and thereafter sit for the final examination. On completion of the programme, successful candidates accordingly utilise their JUPEB certificate to secure admission into 200level in any Nigeria tertiary institution via JAMB.
JUPEB LEGIBILITY: JUPEB certificate is presently recognised and accepted in more than 70% of Nigeria federal, state and all private Universities. Thus, prospective candidates can check (item 2.2) of JAMB BROCHURE to confirm JUPEB legibility.
JUPEB PROGRAMME DURATION: JUPEB A’level programme runs for a maximum period of one academic session(9-10month) divided into two(2) semesters.
JUPEB PROGRAMME ELIGIBILITY: The programme is open to all interested candidates nationwide and any course can be offered to be it Science, Art or Social Science. But you must pass your WAEC, NECO, NABTEB etc. You must have at least 5 credit unit in not more than two sitting.
With JUPEB, candidates can apply and study any course with the programme at almost Nigerian Universities that accept the final JUPEB result. Basically students who failed to use the only JAMB to gain admission into higher institution in Nigeria can use JUPEB in combination with JAMB D.E and the post UTME of the choice university and the admission chances is way higher if they already passed through the rudiment process of registration, admission into the various centres in Nigeria, attend lectures and register for the examination and come out with good JUPEB grade. Before candidates can use JUPEB to gain admission, the student needs to combine it with JAMB D.E form just like the polytechnic students.
