This post is meant to address what JUPEB as a program is all about, the relationship between Amas Nigeria and JUPEB and why we may not send prospective JUPEB candidates to private tutorial centres again.
WHAT IS JUPEB
According to the information on JUPEB website, The Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB) is a national examinations body approved by the Federal Government of Nigeria in December 2013. It was formally established in April 2014 by a consortium of ten (10) partnering universities led by the University of Lagos.
The board has the responsibility of conducting common and standard examinations for the candidates, who have been exposed to a minimum of one-year approved courses in the different Universities’s Foundation and/or Diploma Programmes and are seeking Direct Entry admissions into University courses at the 200 Level in Nigeria and partnering foreign universities.
The first of such examinations was conducted in August 2014 and successful candidates were admitted into 200 Level by JAMB based on recommendations from the universities. With effect from 2015, JUPEB Examinations will hold in June annually.
RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN US AND JUPEB
Before we dive into explanation, kindly note that we do not have any affiliation with JUPEB as a body. We are not and do not pose as JUPEB affiliated university.
Amas Nigeria was basically created to guide Nigerian Students on how they can pursue their educational dreams without stress. What we did in the case of JUPEB was to refer students who needed tutorial for JUPEB exams to centres within proximity.
Why Amas Nigeria will not Offer This Service Anymore.
This post is coming in less than 24 hours of knowing that JUPEB as a body prefer to work directly with her affiliated universities instead of tutorial centres. Any candidate who wishes to apply for JUPEB programme should visit JUPEB website @ jupeb.edu.ng to check out affiliated universities closer to them.
For Already Registered Students
We are currently putting modalities in place to make sure that students directed to private tutorial centres by AmasNigeria.com are duly refunded within seven working days from the date of this publication (21st January, 2021). Any candidates who is not refunded within the stipulated period is expected to contact us through our helpline/email address.
