What is the relevance of UTME to the Predegree programme?

Since UTME is a requirement for admission into Nigerian University as laid down by the Federal Government, It is mandatory that every student on the Pre-degree programme register.

No prospective candidates can gain admission into any tertiary institution without passing through JAMB. The only difference is that, you have a better chance of admission with Pre-Degree if you score up to 60% and above and at least 200 in UTME.
