The third and the highest level of tertiary education in Nigeria is the University.
There are presently 124 universities with Federal and State government controlling 37 each while the Private sector controls 50. Applicants have over 570 courses to choose from each categorized into Faculties.
There are some courses that have enjoyed consistent preference; I have used both Applicants’ choices in both JAMB 2013, 2014 and 2015 to show some of these courses. These obviously would help those still in Secondary schools and future JAMB applicants know how competitive a course is before finally locking their choice down on it.
From my findings; Medicine & Surgery is the most sought-after course in the whole of Nigeria universities.
Also, out of the whole 124 universities; only 35 offer Medicine & Surgery, 16 Federal, 14 State and 4 Private universities respectively.
Other top 15 courses are
3) Business administration
4) Mass Communication(CLA)
5) Computer Science
7) Political Science
10) Nursing/Nursing Science
12) Mechanical Engineering
13) Civil Engineering
14) Public Administration
15) Elect/Elect Engineering
16) Petroleum Engineering
