BEST WAY TO GAIN ADMISSION INTO UNILAG TO STUDY MEDICINE
The 3 ways to gain admission into UNILAG to study medicine and surgery is by
- The UTME examination
- Direct Entry
In 2016, UNILAG admitted only 100 from UTME, 30 from JUPEB and 6 medical students from Direct Entry.
I’ll personally tell you that the best way to gain admission into the university of Lagos is by JAMB UTME although it’s very competitive like every other.
Entering through JUPEB is getting really much tougher than ever as they keep reducing the amount of student they admit annually mainly due to the number of 150 given to Unilag to admit medical students. And as a UTME student, you also get to enjoy bonuses like public scholarships which JUPEB and Direct Entry student are not eligible for most times.
