Firstly, candidates must have selected the University of Lagos as their preferred institution during their 2023/2024 Direct Entry (DE) JAMB application. Additionally, candidates must secure a minimum of five (5) credit passes in relevant O/Level subjects, including English Language and Mathematics, achieved in a single sitting.
Candidates are further required to meet all the O/Level and Direct Entry requisites for their chosen courses as stipulated by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB). For a more comprehensive understanding, aspirants can refer to the JAMB brochure available online.
Age and Participation Criteria
It is imperative to note that candidates younger than sixteen (16) years of age as of October 31, 2023, are not eligible to apply. Moreover, non-participation in the online screening will automatically disqualify a candidate from the admission process.
Consistency in Personal Information
Candidates must ensure uniformity in the personal details, such as name, date of birth, state of origin, and local government area, across all documents and results.
Special Cases: Former and Expelled Students
Former students whose admissions were rescinded due to academic underperformance or absence can reapply. However, the reapplication should be for a course distinct from the one previously pursued. It should be noted that any student expelled from UNILAG is ineligible for re-admission.
