When you’re thinking about attending university there are several factors you should take into consideration. Finding the best institution for yourself should depend upon your unique needs. The cost, the quality of the education, reputation of the college and percentage of graduates who find jobs are a few items to factor in. There are some universities that you should stay away from, even if they’re more affordable or nearer to where you live.
Just as there are some universities categorized as best, there are also some worst private and public universities and colleges in Nigeria that you should be aware of. The importance of this is to be informed in your decision-making process as you register for your next JAMB examination.
There is no point in attending a university that the commissioning body (NUC) has listed to be among the worst universities, especially where there are options of the best, highly-ranked universities to choose from.
