Top 10 toughest Universities to gain admission into in Nigeria


Toughest Universities to gain admission into in Nigeria: Some experts argue that there is no such thing as most difficult university to get admission into. Admission into any institution, they believe, may be easy or hard depending on the level of preparation on the side of applicants. This school of thought may be true elsewhere, but not in Nigeria. Down here, it is cheap to gain admission into some schools compared to a few others. Below are 10 hardest Universities to get into in Nigeria.


This article is not to discourage those of prospective students that have chosen the under listed schools as their most preferred universities in JAMB. It is however, a way to motivate all those who applied for the schools to read harder in the forthcoming Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination. It’s always survival of the fittest!

Hardest Universities to get into in Nigeria

Although not necessarily in this order, among the list of schools in Nigeria that give prospective students tough time are :-

  1. University of Ibadan (UI)
  2. Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU)
  3. University of Benin (UNIBEN)
  4. University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN)
  5. Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO)
  6. Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka (UNIZIK)
  7. University of Lagos (UNILAG)
  8. University of Calabar (UNICAL)
  9. Ahmadu Bello University (ABU)
  10. University of Ilorin (UNILORIN)

In such topic of discussion as this, candidates will be tempted to ask for reasons why these schools are more difficult in admission process than others. The truth is they do not hate students, rather they are on higher demand than other universities within their range. Most often than not, these schools have more applicants per course than they can handle, so the only way is to admit the best among equals and let others go or come back next year.
