Unilag Admission Tips for 2019/2020

One thing you should never forget while going for admission into huge sought after academic institutions like this is to focus on your strength.

Never get confused because you aren’t good in one subject or the other. One of the best advice you need is to focus on the subjects you know and do it well and try your best in others.

“Another wonderful approach to beating the multitudes and gaining admission into Unilag is by approaching the exam with a lot of confidence. Never try to panic and believe in yourself and in your God that your admission is sure. Self-confidence + God’s blessing can lead you to places where you won’t believe.

One of the surest methods of boosting your confidence is to start your preparation way before the examination. You need to be adequately prepared.”

Another tip that should always be on your fingertips is this:
“The time allocated to students in this examination is short, less than one minute on each question.

Ensure that you take the time allocation into consideration; don’t waste your time on one question. Once the time set is reached, the computer automatically closes. It is much more preferable if you do the submission yourself.

“More and more students are choosing the University OF Lagos (unilag) as their choice of University, and the number is increasing every year. Here’s a statistics to back up my claim.

In 2012, 83,865 students applied,
