MBBS is best but BDS is also an awesome degree to be done as it is related to human health issues
as it is related to teeth and in teeth calculus bridge, gum bleeding are some most common issues in the teeth.
The duo of Medicine and Dental Surgery consider themselves equal. No one discipline out ranks the other.

Be guided.

West: UI, arguably the most transparent University in Nigeria. You need to really read to get in, the competition is usually stiff every year. UI is pretty expensive these days, so you know. Don't really know about OAU. And whosoever devised UNILAG's model of Post UTME must be of the devil.

North: UNIMAID, the lowest I heard they admitted for Medicine this year was 286. Hence, I believe with a little above 300, you have definitely sealed a spot for yourself in their Med School. It's imperative you know UNIMAID recently jacked up her fees from a paltry 33k basic to 100+.

I also heard UDUSOK is pretty cool too. As regards ABU, I'm left confused sometimes. I know two guys with averages of 290+ each who didn't get a spot for Medicine.

Also, you might want to look up BUK, ATBU, Bauchi and FUD, Jigawa.

East/South-South: In these regions it's usually an uphill task to get into Medicine. Look at UNN admitting 500+ first year medical students. Only to start dropping them along the way.

Uniport and UNIBEN's occasional need for legs and sometimes money to get in. DELSU's yeye PUTME model that requires the grace of God.

Nevertheless, in the midst of all these, I heard EBSU is really doing well and keeping their game tight. However, their tuition is a bit on the high side.

PS: The institutions I wrote about are the ones I have some idea about. Please endeavor to make your own findings.

Good evening house.
Please, I need you absolute and sincere advice.
.
I just graduated with Bsc Physiology.
I want to apply for next year Jamb MBBS or BDS.
I want to know what university I can apply for that I can have a good chance of admission.
School fees also into consideration.
.
Please reply me as I need to start making arrangements.
.
THANKS.
PS. I am from Abia
Congratulations on your Bsc. If School fees is a big part of your consideration then you should bê considering majorly federal uni and few state unis that are kinda pocket friedly.
You did not tell us what you finised physio with but a 1st class or 2:1 should make UI, OAU, Uniben or Unizik easy. All in all, supplement your DE with utme and spread your tentacles beyond Abia.
Best of luck.

Please any UDUS medical student, I want to inquire about UDUS MBBS, the tuition fee, hostel fee and transparency to people from the south. What is the sure score a person from the Nigerian Delta needs to get admitted into MBBS. Thanks in anticipation...
Udus mbbs is quite solid and running well. School fees + acceptance is less than seventy thousand for 1st year and lower for other levels. Hostel is cheap too but there are expensive ones. Admission for Deltans is usually Max of 3/4 of the highest scorers amongst the aspirants from that state. It's a fed. Uni and other states must be considered too. Just aim to be amongst the top 2 aspirants from your state and you're good to go. Also 320+ in utme should sail you in smoothly. There is no post utme as at now
My best wishes are yours.

Hello Bosses

I will be taken Cambridge A'Level Exam 2020 into University of Ibadan, MBBS.
And also along side with Utme 2020 into University of Lagos, MBBS.

I plead to you Bosses here who has one advice or the other to guide my steps should please help out.

I will be So much greatful!
Awesome choices up there. You must know how competitive unilag is and her post utme is... UI also considers Alevels well. All in all, good scores matter.
Best of luck
Re: The medical students and aspirants thread by ShahRukhKhan: 10:50am On Dec 29, 2019
UI, Unilag, OAU are more about you meeting their cut off mark. These schools look at ŕesults before deciding cut off in such, they know how many they'd admit. I find OAU post utme trickier than Unilags. For DE, I think the max OAU admitted at a stretch is 28 - when she won't increase her quota.



Unimaid truly is not bringing down their fees soon. Although she's good and strong. I pray Udus doesn't increase her own - there is no money on ground. Unimaid admits heavily as their 1st +2nd batch admission list is over 7000. A friend got in this year with 299 (I heard unimaid audio merit is 275) but she also uses the same admission policy like UDUSok and ABU. By admitting just top scorers from merit States and a little bit of relaxation on catchments. By the way Udus has refused to admit via DE into MBBS, BDS, Mls, Nursing and Radiography this year. I don't know why.



BUK is only arguably for extreme bookworms as I've noticed. The lowest person I've seen got in with average of 319 or so. I don't know much about her DE. FUD, Jigawa is not yet accredited, I can't really advise someone to go there tho I saw someone screenshot of admission into mbbs with 220. ATBU is more easier to get in than BUK. Apart from Unijos being slow and reclusive, she's also another nice shot for MBBS.



UNN is connection and slot buying. Always over the counter with her admission. Then drastic cutting down. I heard the VC needs money. UNIZIK is realistically easier here. Uniport & Uniben are great too.



Lasu, Ebsu, Esust, OOU are nice and fast. Save for their fees that are kind of high. I'd advise anyone who doesn't want extra stress to choose any. Delsu should just say they don't want to admit and stop setting mad post utme. Lautech too is trying to catch up

Re: The medical students and aspirants thread by Horlorlardaey: 11:36am On Dec 29, 2019

Horlorlardaey:
I saw this somewhere! Lemme share here to fellow aspirants...

Getting Admitted into Medicine... Where am I missing it here?
PS: This is a long post riddled with opinions of the writer alone, you're free to agree to it or not and it's not meant to denigrate any medical school.
Getting admitted into Medicine is a herculean task, to be candid Medicine is not easy to get at all, less than 10% of all medical aspirants get in at first attempt - others have to try twice, thrice... And some it was at the sixth attempt. I'm not here to hype medicine or paint the gory tales of admission seekers, rather channel your minds to few factors that might have been the cause of delay as a medical enthusiast.

One, Do you want to really study medicine or you want to study the university? Don't get me wrong, it is okay to crave for admission into Nigeria's ivy league, it is very okay to want admission in schools like UI, UNN, OAU, ABU, UniBen etc but when you can't get in at 1st and 2nd attempt - switch university don't trade dreams. It took me longer than expected that 'medical education at the undergraduate level is the same', That it's not by the university name but what you acquire overtime there. We are all addressed as 'doctors' in the clinical setting not 'Unilag Doctor', 'Absu Doctor', 'Unimaid Doctor'. Have a proper mindset as medical aspirants. 'Accreditation Status', 'Facilities available', 'Standard Teaching Hospital', 'Available Personnels' are what you should be considering when selecting schools not name of school, category of students going there, location or friends choice. Stop wasting money and time chasing Unilag when you know your grades would have fetched you that same MBBS in LASU.

Two, Admission Process. Medical education is not always that smooth. Most schools compromise when it comes to MBBS - I don't blame them, all medical schools in Nigeria do get more than needed aspirants. The golden rule here is 'Try to beat the process'. Some schools write post utme, others don't, some schools consider O'levels, some don't use Olevel at all - some schools bank only on utme, Some published cut off marks, Some hide their cut off marks from the public, some consider indigene..... You need to know the one you can 'beat their process'. Find out all the information you need, don't just bank on what you see online, make findings from people there, because you read it online from a wacky blog that a school cut off mark is 270 does not mean 270 on dot will 100% get you MBBS there. You need to ask those inside the system. You need to score more.

Three, Be ready to bend. I learnt this phrase too very late. 'Be dogmatic to your goals but flexible with your approach'. Not all medical students gain admission via Utme. Try other means like jupeb, pre degree, remedial.... Even DE and Change of Course at the end of 100lvl for schools that do such. Ade wrote utme for six consecutive times before getting MBBS whilst his friend Bayo wrote once got Microbiology, finished and applied via DE. Ade wasted six years at home with nothing propelling him towards his goal while Bayo bagged a separate degree during that period.

Four, Consider God Factor and be happy for others in the system. Delay is not denial. You not getting it last year doesn't mean you can't get it forever. Oh ye medical aspirants know thine self - know your strongholds, know where you can excel, work on your flaws. Beat competition at where it favours you the most, consider catchment where it favours you the most, head slam merit where you can get it, build your connections too - no one is too small or less important to help, connect with helpers and stay updated, don't bank on online hearsays when choosing schools.
Always remember "The goal is to be a Doctor not to study Medicine".

True. This year, they screened their DE applicants. I gathered the questions were mostly English Language, some sciences and general knowledge.

UniAbuja is a very good choice but it's competitive. Applicants should prepare their minds for a very stiff competition.

Pharmacy and medicine

Every discipline I'd say has it's intricacies. It would be rather shallow to say Pharmacy is tougher than Medicine or vice-versa.

I have someone close who studies Pharmacy.

The kind of things she complains about are largely Lab Reports(you can easily have 3 reports to submit at a given time), Dispensing Lab(and the ease of scoring a zero, it's even regarded a norm), Pharmacognosy and their many leaves and Pharmaceutical Chemistry (the ease of failing a whole question because you got the preceding ones wrong).

Even carrying that heavy COdex is definitely something. People flopping anyhow and having to go back one year.

I for one I'm not a fan of excessive chemistry(chemistry that has reduced to just drawing awkward lines and imagining where carbon atoms are undecided). In Pharmacy, their world revolves around chemistry, not my thing.

On the flip side, in medical school you attend dissection sessions where formaldehyde and it's attendant pungent odor leaves your eyes watery and labcoat smelly. Some school's insist on students taking Tetanus injections at regular intervals as a precautionary measure should one cut himself.

Reading Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry for two years(it's shorter period though) and you're required to go over everything again because you're about writing an exam that would take you forward or contribute to the misery of medical school should one fail. You've probably heard about people losing their minds in Medical school, ironic right?

The lecturers that would come to class with outrageous amounts of slides and sometimes yab people.

Going on ward rounds with a consultant during a certain rotation and the consultant decides to chew you because you forgot something about the pathology of the condition before you, this is usually done openly among colleagues and the patient. Many ladies just burst into tears; normal thing.

The extremely late nights and very early mornings.

Steeple-chase tests that require you staring at maybe a severed arm with the cubital fossa pinned and you're asked to name the structures that make up the roof, floor and boundaries under 1 minute/45 seconds.

Histology practicals that leave you confused even the more because what you're seeing under the microscope has no semblance to what you saw in the textbook.

The grading system which is usually a negative one for a question you attempted and got wrong as opposed to leaving the question unanswered and scoring zero.

In the light of all these, every course has their not so cool aspects, I'm sure even students of Glass Technology or Home Economics would definitely tell you their courses are also tedious.

The patient should be the center in health care not the cases we hear of Doctors (Med/Dent) having issues with MLS guys or Physiotherapy people feeling the doctors(Med) are usurping their duties. These issues are usually the Genesis of most MDCN vs JOHESU brawls.

I hope you got me.

I think the catchment area of a thing has been scraped. But this is Nigeria, you never know. Nevertheless just as any medical school out there you have to work really hard. Score as high as possible, ensure u have a good o level and do your best in the post utme because OAU post utme can be very tricky.

West: UI, arguably the most transparent University in Nigeria. You need to really read to get in, the competition is usually stiff every year. UI is pretty expensive these days, so you know. Don't really know about OAU. And whosoever devised UNILAG's model of Post UTME must be of the devil.

North: UNIMAID, the lowest I heard they admitted for Medicine this year was 286. Hence, I believe with a little above 300, you have definitely sealed a spot for yourself in their Med School. It's imperative you know UNIMAID recently jacked up her fees from a paltry 33k basic to 100+.

I also heard UDUSOK is pretty cool too. As regards ABU, I'm left confused sometimes. I know two guys with averages of 290+ each who didn't get a spot for Medicine.

Also, you might want to look up BUK, ATBU, Bauchi and FUD, Jigawa.

East/South-South: In these regions it's usually an uphill task to get into Medicine. Look at UNN admitting 500+ first year medical students. Only to start dropping them along the way.

Uniport and UNIBEN's occasional need for legs and sometimes money to get in. DELSU's yeye PUTME model that requires the grace of God.

Nevertheless, in the midst of all these, I heard EBSU is really doing well and keeping their game tight. However, their tuition is a bit on the high side.

PS: The institutions I wrote about are the ones I have some idea about. Please endeavor to make your own findings.
Please, does Ebsu admit non-indigene.

I stay in Delta cheesy
There are institutions closer to you than OAU that are even easier to get admitted into. Unless you don't want to consider proximity of distance
