What Is JUPEB?

The Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB) is a national examinations body approved by the Federal Government of Nigeria in December 2013. It was established in April 2014 by a consortium of ten (10) partnering universities led by the University of Lagos.

The Board has the responsibility of conducting standard examinations for the candidates, who have been exposed to a minimum of one-year approved courses in the different Universities’ Foundation and/or Diploma Programmes and are seeking Direct Entry admissions into University courses at the 200 Level in Nigerian and partnering foreign universities.

The first of such examinations were conducted in August 2014, and successful candidates were admitted into 200 Level by JAMB based on recommendations from the universities.

  3. Each candidate is expected to take twelve (12) courses, six per semester.
  4. The students upon completion of the program will be issued certificates based on their level of performance which bear Letter Grades of A, B, C, D, E, or F in each of the three subjects.
