JAMB Most Competitive Courses For Admission Into Nigeria Institutions.
As this year’s JAMB begins to approach and draw nearer, I’m very sure the question that would be on lips of most candidates is ” what is this JAMB Most Competitive Courses”
There is no need for much publicity for people to know that an average Nigerian University offers at least 66 courses.
Nevertheless, it is still heartbreaking that much availability of courses doesn’t guarantee admission because everyone has his/her own eye on the “big cake” .
Most times, I tell my folks who always ask me for help about courses to choose for admission chances that they should always go for the course after their heart ( because I don’t like discouraging people’s valor) BUT, “you must be ready for a battle” if the course after your heart is among the TOPNOTCHs.
Well, let me not waste time mentioning the usual Most Competitive Courses For Admission Into Nigeria Institutions.
If you choose any of these courses, you need to tighten your belt.
Yeah, Biochemistry. I know you might be wondering what Mr Biochemistry is doing here..
Do you know why a lot of candidates chose Biochemistry?
Most choose this course just to be able to change course to MEDICINE after which they’ve gained admission.
Am not asking you to go and do like them o but at least you why it’s among the top 10 list.
9. COMPUTER SCIENCE
Candidates are now aware the potentials of being a computer scientist.
Computer science is a very lucrative course especially in this our computer age and that’s why it’s on the list.
8. ELECTRICAL/ELECTRONIC/ MECHANICAL ENGINEERING
Back then when I was in secondary school, I remember an ART student who wants to be an engineer… Lol, yeah it’s funny right..
Engineering is one of the enviable and part of the most sought after courses in this world of technology.
Everybody wants to be an engineer one way or the other.. Even a phone repairer guy who doesn’t have a degree calls himself what? ENGINEER.
7. POLITICAL SCIENCE
Don’t be amazed Political Science made the list.
In case you are not in vogue, there’s lot of money in politics and young people are already starting to vibe in to the system.
6. PETROCHEMICAL ENGINEERING/ PETROLEUM ENGINEERING
This is what my Yoruba fellas would call “owo epo ” , I mean literally “Petrol money”
No-one needs to tell you that there’s huge money in petroleum and everyone now wants to work in big fuel companies like CHEVRON, NNPC , TOTAL, SHELL and the rest… This is what made this course part of the highest course applied for.
“Sisi Nurse” especially the sound of “Aunty Nurse” gives some people a smell of mesmerizing fulfilment.. Lolz..
Do you even know that guys are now going well for nursing?
That is to tell you that it’s not a joke because nursing as a job, poses a lot of beneficial benefits and peoples’ eyes now are opened.
Don’t be deceived, Agriculture is now a very competitive course.
Agriculture has now grown and have different branches ; some include –
Agronomy, Agricultural Extension, Agricultural Economics, Aquaculture, Crop Protection and Environmental Biology, Widelife and Ecotourism, Animal Science, Aquaculture and fisheries and many others…
3. DENTITSRY AND DENTAL SURGERY :
The reason for the competition for this course is because of limited space in Nigerian Universities.
For example, In University of Ibadan (UI) Out of hundreds and thousands that choose this course, only about 40 got admitted.
This is to tell you that spaces are congested and the competition is damn out there.
No-one is scaring you but you need the truth to face the world.. And that’s why we are here.. Isn’t it ???
I don’t need to talk much about this..its certified.. As you know, LAW is the “pride” of all ART students.
A lot of people now apply for LAW even those from social sciences and we’ve even seen people in sciences who wrote another O’Level and opted for LAW.

Maybe it’s the prestige or maybe it’s the pressure but, LAW is actually the 2nd most competitive course without further argument.
1. MEDICINE & SURGERY
And now, this is our number one on the JAMB 10 Most Competitive Courses.
In case you are not informed, not less than 82% of science students always aspire to be a doctor one day and this is why medicine as a course is always damn congested.
No wonder it always has the highest cut off mark every year in all schools amidst all its brethren courses.
