In another attempt to promote their motto, the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) invites applications from suitably qualified candidates for admission into the Joint University Preliminary Examination Board (JUPEB) programme for the 2014/2015 session.
The Joint Universities Preliminary Examination Board (JUPEB) is a new Advanced Level examination body recently established and coordinated by the University of Lagos (UNILAG). Basically, the programme is similar to the Interim Joint matriculation Board (IJMB) coordinated by Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) and recognized by many universities in Northern Nigeria.
JUPEB is, as at now, recognized by Federal universities in Southern Nigeria such as University of Lagos (Unilag), University of Nigeria, Nsukka, University of Ibadan (UI), Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA), University of Ilorin (UNILORIN), Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT), and University of Calabar (UNICAL).

1. Each candidate must register, sit for Examinations and satisfy the Board in three subjects and a General Studies course relevant to the proposed course in any of the universities.
2. Each subject is to be broken into four courses to be taken, two per semester, by the candidate. The results in all the courses are to be merged at the end of the second semester to obtain the candidate’s grade in that particular subject.
3. Each candidate is expected to take twelve (12) courses, six per semester, and a General Studies course.
4. The general Studies for courses in each University Faculty will be based on relevant General courses suggested for that Faculty by each university.
