Have you read about the Niger Delta University Pre-Degree and Basic Programme? It is another sure way of gaining admission into the NDU and application are currently on.
“The Niger Delta University at its 125th meeting of the Senate held in May 6, 2015 established the Pre-Degree Programme and expanded the initial Basic Studies Programme for the Sciences in the University to include all other programmes offered by the University. The aim is to make University admission easier for the teeming population of youths and to prepare students for better University pursuit and positive career development.”
“Both the Pre-Degree and Basic Programmes are for only one year. At the end of the programme, admission will be given to the candidates who achieved the threshold. The Pre-Degree Programme offers candidates who enrolled into it the opportunity to engage in purposeful studies for two semesters, at the end of which candidates are offered admission into 200 level in their respective courses of choice in the University. Writing of JAMB or Post-UTME test is not required for the Pre-Degree. Candidates only have to pass the two-semester university-based examinations and the external examination organized by Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB).”
“The programme leads to the award of Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board certificates which enables candidates to gain Direct Entry Admission into 200 level of the programme offered by the Niger Delta University and other affiliated universities in Nigeria and abroad. The JUPEB certificate is equivalent to the advanced level GCE or the old Higher School Certificate (HSE) or IJAMB. Application for the 2019/2020 academic session is currently ongoing. It started June 24th and is still on till date. Candidates seeking admissions into any of the programmes must have five O’level credits in not more than two sittings in the SSCE/NECO or other recognized examinations in subjects relevant to the course of study. Note that the five O’level credits must include English Language and Mathematics.”
“The Basic Studies programme is designed to improve the performance of secondary school leavers in SSCE, NECO, UTME and other equivalent examinations. The duration of the programme is one academic year of two semesters. Candidates are required to write examinations at the end of each semester and only those who perform creditably are admitted into the undergraduate programmes of the university. So far, the programmes are running smoothly and students gain admission with ease into their choice of study.”
