Does UNILAG Accept Second Choice Candidates: Many a time, I have seen students who applied for admission into some institutions in Nigeria, but couldn’t gain admission even after meeting all the admission requirements and stipulated cutoff mark, just because they didn’t make the Institution their first choice.
This a very important requirement for admission into some popular institutions in Nigeria but students don’t pay attention to it. Frankly speaking, if you make any institution your second choice without knowing whether the institution accepts second choice candidates or not, you are already jeopardizing your chances of gaining admission into that institution.

The University of Lagos (Popularly known as UNILAG) is one of the best universities in Nigeria. It is also one of the most popular and cheapest universities any one can attend in Nigeria. Apparently, the university is a federal institution, with about 55,000 students currently studying there.
UNILAG is one of the first universities that was created in Nigeria. It was established in 1964, few years after Nigeria got her independence, to help in improving the level of education among Nigerian youths.
When it comes to offering admission to aspirants, i must confess that UNILAG is very strict. As you already know, over 50 thousand students apply for admission into the university every year.
