The process of gaining admission into UNIBEN starts from having good SSCE result and obtaining high mark in your jamb. The fact is to say it has a lot do with you JAMB.

The heart of men is full of evil and entitled to destruction, except for those whose heart is for God. Check your ways now.

After successfully obtaining a good JAMB result you will then move on to write the school POST UTME testing exercise which will qualify you full access into the school. Don’t be too scared of this step, it’s still as easy even more than JAMB, you just have to focus and know that a little mistake here can send you back to write another JAMB exam the next year at the same time delay your time of entry into the university as you will have to wait for another here again.

If you where able to make your JAMB clean and fair then there is every believe you will also make this. We recently had that UNIBEN has recently introduce a new method of this test exercise call e-POST UTME. This is the act of writing the POST UTME Exam with computers, according to our research this practice was lunched on 17th of August 2015, and to everyone’s amazement it’s been an unprecedented success so far in the history of the University of Benin. According to their website statement, this act will continue in the school as mean of recruiting new students into the school but we later learned that the process was subsequently cancelled by the Federal Government.
