    Is Unilorin offering Pharmacy this year, 2021? If yes, can I read Pharmacy in Unilorin with 241 in Jamb and an awaiting result?

    • Pharmapproach says:

      I can’t categorically say if you would gain admission to study pharmacy in Unilorin with a JAMB score of 241 or not. This is because your chances of gaining admission to study pharmacy also depend on:
      1. the performance of other candidates
      2. your Post UTME score
      3. other school policy
