    • Happiness,

      Your JAMB score is quite low for Radiography.

      It depend on if you can reach the cut off mark with your Post UTME.

    • Kima,

      It involves you to register at the JAMB CBT centre.

      Then, notify your former school to forward your transcript.

      Let me know if you have any further questions.

  1. Can a Medical imaging processing technician/medical x-ray technician graduate be given admission to study Radiography to start at 200level.

  2. How many years can you study radiography in unn? Please what is the difference between radiography and radiological science and just radiography,or are they the same thing?

    • Radiology and radiography are two different things but they are almost the same.The difference is that radiographers are not regarded as medical doctors rather a radiologic technologist.In unn, radiographers almost study the same thing that radiologists do.I even sense that in the nearest future they might begin to write MBBS and then become medical doctors.However for now, you can study medical radiography,then after graduation, you can do masters in radiology, and still become a radiologist if you wish to
