What is a Direct entry student and what does it mean?

Basically, Direct entry is a type of entry into a Nigerian university right to 200/300 level.

Generally, when you get into tertiary institution through JAMB , you can only be admitted into 100 level at any Nigerian University, but if you made a decision to get a form for direct entry and you meet the DE admission requirements, you will get access to that University of your choice, and you will start with 200 level.

However, not everyone is able to apply for direct entry into university. This all depends on the choice of entry into the university you want to apply for. All you need to do is to choose the one you wish to apply for.
