Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board, that is the full meaning of JUPEB.  JUPEB Is a programme that is being moderated and supervised by University Of Ilorin, (Unilag). Is a 9 to 10-month course for advanced students (those who have finished their secondary school certificate) from Nigeria secondary schools to be able to be admitted into the second year at university of choice in combination with JAMB. 

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.

JUPEB Preliminary Information

  • Each candidate is expected to take twelve (12) courses, six per semester, and a General Studies course.
