It is usually more convenient to seek admission for an education course if you’re an NCE holder than chasing a non-education. Once you hold a Nigerian Certificate in Education (NCE), the best chase while obtaining the JAMB Direct Entry form is an education course. This is because you’d already undergone the background studies – thereby prepared you for the same or related courses.
However, you should be able to chase a few other non-education courses, Biochmetry inclusive. Biochemistry is not an education course, yet an NCE hold can be admitted to the universities listed in this post if he obtains Direct Entry and chase the course.
And before listing the universities offering Biochemistry and specifically those accepting NCE for the course, let’s look into what is expected of a Direct Entry applicant.
General Direct Entry Admission Requirements for Biochemistry
NCE holders Seeking Admission into Biochemistry are must:
- have completed the NCE course or awaiting the certificate before proceeding with the admission
- have obtained the NCE from the same or related course to Biochemistry
- obtain a competitive grade in the NCE to have an edge over those with lower grades (though several universities still consider Merit)
- obtain the JAMB DE direct entry form and consider the most favorite university as the first choice
- obtain the post-DE/screening of the proposed university and take part in the exams, online screening, or physical screening (whichever is applicable to your university of choice)
- send his or her academic transcript to the university proposed (if requested)
- possess at least 5 credit passes in relevant SSCE (WAEC, NECO, NABTEB and GCE) subjects for Biochemistry in not more than two sittings.
If that is well understood, we can now check the list of universities to consider for Biochemistry as an NCE holder.
