Many student like you wants to know if the University of Ibadan accepts NABTEB Certificate for admission. The acronym of NABTEB means National Business And Technical Examinations Board and it was established in August 1992 and also enacted through the promulgation of Decree 70 (Now Act 70) of 1993.
NABTEB was primarily established to take over the conduct of examinations hitherto conducted by the City and Guild (C&G) of London, Royal Society of Arts (RSA) of London and the technical and business examinations conducted by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) in the bid to domesticate the examinations and tailor them towards societal needs.
NABTEB was set up to reduce the burden of WAEC. In other words, the University of Ibadan accept NABTEB certificate but there is a clause to this answer. All university and Polytechnics in Nigeria including the University of Ibadan will only accept NABTEB certificate for admission only if the course you want to study is within the jurisdiction of Vocational department, Engineering department and technical courses.
Although the Federal Government has endorsed certificates awarded by the National Business And Technical Examination Board (NABTEB) for admission into Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education in Nigeria, a student of who want to study any course outside the above department should think twice.
Having a NABTEB certificate is not a license that you can study any course in the university. Also, ensure you do further research after reading Fatherprada’s blog. WAEC, GCE, and NECO is still the best chance for any student to gain admission into the university without a problem.
