UNN Admission Requirements for 2020/2021 Session (UTME & Direct Entry)

It is very important that you know the admission requirements of your dream institution before applying for admission into the institution. The reason is because, those requirements are used by the institution to determine candidates who are eligible for admission.

Recently, I noticed that many aspirants of the prestigious University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) usually search the internet to know the UTME and Direct Entry requirements for admission into the school, and that is why i decided to share all the requirements for admission into UNN today.

Another reason why I am doing this is because, I am a student of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka as at the time this post was written, and I know what it really takes to gain admission into the university.

I therefore enjoin you to take every information contained in this page very seriously. If you really want to gain admission into UNN this year, you must meet all the requirements of the university.

Before I will go into the crux of today’s topic, I would like to disclose some of the important things you need to know about admission into UNN.

Unn admission requirements

UNN is one of the biggest and most populated universities in Nigeria. It is in fact, the indigenous university of Nigeria because, the university was established in 1960 (the same year Nigeria got her independence). Currently, UNN ranks top 5 in almost all the rankings of institutions in Nigeria I have seen this year. The university is known in both Nigeria and other parts of the world.

When it comes to offering admission to aspirants, it is very difficult to gain admission into UNN because many students struggle to gain the same admission every year.

Thus, the university usually increase the requirements for admission so that only the best aspirants will be able to gain admission into the institution.

UNN General JAMB Cutoff marks for 2020/2021

UNN general cutoff mark for 2020 is 160 as decided in the just concluded JAMB policy meeting. In other words, before anyone aspirant will be able to gain admission into UNN this session, he/she must score, at least, 160 in JAMB.

Below is a confirmation of this:

Note that candidates will anything lesser than 160 will not be admitted through JAMB CAPS even though they pay their way to the university’s official admission list. It is therefore wise to be careful when paying money to gain admission.

Based on the pristige of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) it is obvious that the university may not offer admission to candidates seeking admission to study professional courses like Law, Medicine or Engineering with 160. For these courses, UNN cutoff mark might be higher.
