MrEgghead:
MBBS/BDS holders are all Doctors and are accorded the same recognition atleast in Nigeria.
I'm sure you know this but your problem seems to be 'fulfillment' which is very important also.
Well, I once heard you could do an 18 months to 2 year program in MBBS after your BDS program but I've never seen anyone who has passed that route so I can't vouch for that.
There's DE route which you'd start from 200L.
I don't believe that relocation part, it's same for everyone.
Hi, I believe Smartmed is reasoning from the angle of the ease of getting out of the country. It's relatively easier to leave Nigeria as a Medical Doctor than as a Dental Surgeon. This is perhaps the reason why he considers switching not necessarily because of a perceived dichotomy.

There's actually a huge difference in the cost of exams as a summarized below:
Medical Doctor
PLAB 1: £237

PLAB 2: £875

Total: £1,112 (N530,320) ; as compared with

Dentist/Dental Surgeon
ORE 1/ LDS 1: £806/ £850

ORE 2/ LDS 2: £2,929/ £2, 940

Total: £3,735 (N 1,781,250)/ £3,790 (N1,804, 480)

Where £1= N476.907

Another thing, venue for the exams. PLAB1 can be written in Nigeria (Lagos, Abuja and Enugu) and even Ghana (if you don't get a seat in Nigeria or register late). PLAB2 is written at Manchester, United Kingdom.

For ORE1, the exam's venue is the King's College, London. While ORE2 is written at the Eastman's Dental Institute, the Dental School affiliated to the University College London. Both parts of the LDS exams are written in London.

However submissions made by you and Aquilapriscilla were very pertinent.

PS: Fees covering Tickets, Visas, Hotel Bookings, Yellow fever card, NARIC statements etc were not considered.

Hello Deeemphasis01,

I want to share my experience with you as regards what you stated. I recently graduated from the University of Ibadan with a degree in Physiology and gained admission to study Dental Surgery at the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.

Here's what I did.
My project work in 400L didn't start until second semester so I wasn't really disturbed by the thoughts of it.

1. During the break between 300L and 400L, I did not go home. I stayed back in Ibadan to begin preparing for the UTME.

2. When we resumed, I made sure I always had data to check my class group on WhatsApp because some of our lecturers are wont to always rescheduling classes as they deem fit (some of the classes didn't eventually hold).

3. Again, I intentionally missed classes to stay back to read for the UTME. I always made sure I called my friends to help me sign against my name or write my name on the attendance list.

4. I always made sure I knew about tests early so I had ample time to read for the Physiology test, putting away UTME temporarily before picking it up again.

5. Some of my classmates thought I was unserious, now they know better. Don't take it to heart when you get those vibes and don't publicize your affairs or have someone publicize them on your behalf.

6. For lecturers whose classes had marks attached for attendance (meaning they counted the number of students present, as compared with the list), I made it a rule to always attend their classes.

7. When I was to go write the postutme at Zaria, I had a test in Ibadan clashing with my exam at Zaria. The course was taken by a consultant who has a joint appointment at the Department of Physiology, COM_UI and the Department of Oral Pathology, UCH. I couldn't take the risk of disappearing and coming back to give her reasons for my disappearance.

So, I wrote a her letter(with attached evidence) and I had a friend deliver it to her by proxy on the day of the test. Place your letter in an envelope and address it as appropriate. It makes a good impression. When I got back, the woman asked about my journey, the exam etc. And I eventually wrote my test in her office with aircon cool.

Another Professor, I didn't hear about his assignment until the evening preceding the day of deadline. Can I kill myself? The following day, I went to his office, explained myself and asked if I could submit mine at a later date, baba asked me "Listen to yourself, does what you're saying make sense, please leave my office". Thank God I didn't waste my time. Grumpy old man.

Another lecturer I missed her test, an impromptu one. After explaining myself (I just told her I travelled), she told me and a classmate who was also absent to pick a day among ourselves for our make up test. We even moved it by a day again, very awesome woman.

My point, don't expect all your lecturers to be thesame, write letters (to the ones you might be missing their test or exam) informing them formally.

8. On the days I attended classes, immediately classes were dismissed, I went straight to my house. No waiting for friends for gists as we sauntered home, I faced the task with a singleness of purpose.

9. Pray and commit it all to God. He's not coming last on this list because he's the least. It's because he's the ultimate. Nothing happens outside of the creator. His grace is all that's needed. If you're a Muslim, don't miss your Salat and do it with the whole of your mind.


As regards preparing for the exams,
1. Get your JAMB recommended texts(and those recommended by other persons preparing for the UTME). I can't really remember the names of most of those texts so I wouldn't dabble into that.

2. Master calculating without a Calculator because even JAMB's yeye calculator won't do you any good. Although you should have a calculator to help you review your accuracy.

3. Know the square-root of numbers from 2 to 10. Excluding perfect squares including 1 since it's a perfect square. Special angles and Conversions.

4. Draft up a syllabus of English of your own. Don't depend on JAMB's English syllabus, it's an eyesore.

5. Pay attention to diagrams, charts and their labellings. Know and distinguish properly between things that can mess you up before you enter the exam Hall, imagine confusing Mixed Salts and Complex Salts. The different approaches to calculating relative density. All those things matter.

6. Don't take any subject with levity. They all carry 100 marks.

7. On the days of the UTME and PUTME, go with the notes you have formed from the different books you have amassed. You know the Nigerian Factor affects everything in this country. I was supposed to write my exam by 9am, I entered into the Hall by 1:30Pm.

8. Preferably take a soda just before going in to raise you Blood-Glucose levels. Your brain really needs it. When you get into the exam Hall, calm down first. You don't have to start when you're asked to, it's CBT remember. Make sure you're calm before logging in.

9. Start from the subjects that aren't time consuming: Biology, English, Chemistry and Physics, in that order. When you encounter a question you don't have an answer to or you're unsure, skip immediately and come back later, chances are that you would get it right at the second attempt.

And don't leave any question unanswered, even if you don't know the answer, always pick something eventually, there's no negative marking.

There are instances where questions and answers are out of sync, usually go with the most logical of options.

10. Past questions go a long way too. Try to solve questions from 10-15 years ago. You don't have to solve every question. Just endeavor to understand the concept behind the topic.

11. You might make some mistakes, we all do. Don't beat yourself up for it.

I wish you the very best my friend.

Kindest regards.

thanks in anticipation for you candid response

4. Draft up a syllabus of English of your own. Don't depend on JAMB's English syllabus, it's an eyesore.

5. Pay attention to diagrams, charts and their labellings. Know and distinguish properly between things that can mess you up before you enter the exam Hall, imagine confusing Mixed Salts and Complex Salts. The different approaches to calculating relative density. All those things matter.

6. Don't take any subject with levity. They all carry 100 marks.

7. On the days of the UTME and PUTME, go with the notes you have formed from the different books you have amassed. You know the Nigerian Factor affects everything in this country. I was supposed to write my exam by 9am, I entered into the Hall by 1:30Pm.

8. Preferably take a soda just before going in to raise you Blood-Glucose levels. Your brain really needs it. When you get into the exam Hall, calm down first. You don't have to start when you're asked to, it's CBT remember. Make sure you're calm before logging in.

9. Start from the subjects that aren't time consuming: Biology, English, Chemistry and Physics, in that order. When you encounter a question you don't have an answer to or you're unsure, skip immediately and come back later, chances are that you would get it right at the second attempt.

And don't leave any question unanswered, even if you don't know the answer, always pick something eventually, there's no negative marking.

There are instances where questions and answers are out of sync, usually go with the most logical of options.

10. Past questions go a long way too. Try to solve questions from 10-15 years ago. You don't have to solve every question. Just endeavor to understand the concept behind the topic.

11. You might make some mistakes, we all do. Don't beat yourself up for it.

I wish you the very best my friend.

Kindest regards.


The bolded is rare in my school.

Although I'm still an aspirant, but I've written ui post utme twice.

Let me tell you a simple truth.
Ui questions are modified form of jamb 80's past question and, in some cases, lamlad questions.

But it requires smartness. Ui need you to cram the whole textbook if possible. You can also use mnemonics. Understand the concepts clearly and interpret them in your own words.
There will be about 95 O level questions and 5 A level questions. The A level serves as 'control questions'. Unless you have done a degree before, Ijmb or Jupeb, you can't get these questions. You won't be the only one missing it as well.

Another factor is time and calculator. There won't be calculator. Try solving without calculator. In fact, if possible cram some values like Cos 30, Sin 75 etc. ...and be time conscious.

Also, practise the practice questions very well. Last year, ui brought about 25 questions directly from the practice questions. I underestimated it and banged them woefully, one of the greatest mistakes I made. In 2018, I saw only about 5.(Total number of questions being 100; 25 from each jamb subject). Note that some answers to the practice questions are wrong. Try and find correct answers.
For the Use of English, try and get ui GES 101 text by Ayo Osisanwo and Kazeem Adebiyi-Adelabu.

The second mistake I made is that I was emotionally imbalance. Try leaving your problems, if any, and focus firmly on the exam. I missed some questions I should have got naturally.

Ui post utme isn't a child's play.
Study wide and hard. Don't listen to the 'The exam is not hard' crew.

Remember, E no hard, e no hard, na so over confidence dey start

I wish us success.
