About UNIBEN JUPEB Programme

The program results in the awarding of the Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB) Certificate, allowing candidates to obtain Direct Entry Admission into the 200 level of the degrees offered by the University of Benin and other JUPEB-affiliated Universities in Nigeria and universities abroad.

Each candidate enrolls in six courses per semester, for a total of twelve courses at the end of the program. The subjects are divided into four courses with the designations 001, 002, 003, and 004. Additionally, candidates will enroll in two general studies classes (one per semester). Each course will be assessed at the conclusion of each semester, but at the conclusion of the second semester, the results from all the courses taken will be combined to produce a letter grade for each subject (i.e. A, B, C, D, E & F).

The general studies to be chosen by each candidate will be based on general courses relevant to the field of study.

For admission into the University of Benin and other JUPEB affiliate institutions, each candidate, in addition to passing the prescribed JUPEB examination for issuing the Direct Entry Certificates, must satisfy all admission requirements prescribed by departments and faculties of choice.
