What Admission Seekers Should Expect in Post UTME
You have heard or read that the court has instructed schools not to conduct post UTME test. But this may not mean that they won’t continue with the screening.
And don’t fall for it – schools (used to exams) may still continue with their test in the meantime.
Some schools may actually agree not to write tests, but they will still want you to buy and register for their form online.
Then, you will be forced to partake in admission screening exercise instead (which can take the form of uploading and submission of results and credentials to the school portal or admission committee)
However, some institutions can be so stubborn that they may not yield to the court’s order. This judgment was passed in 2016 which forced some of these stubborn institutions to end up with admission screening instead of test. But in 2017 and 2018, they still returned to their old ways (post-UTME computer-based test).
Wait patiently for whatever method your proposed school chooses. Don’t speculate unnecessarily. If your school is well known for post UTME test, prepare for that and if yours is well known for admission screening only, prepare for both.
Don’t forget, exercise like this is a system. This system can change anytime.
In 2018, Ekiti State University conducted post-UTME computer-based test for the first batch applicants for post UTME. Then, for the subsequent admission lists, they didn’t conduct any test. Candidates were just offered admission based on O’level and JAMB results.
Adeyemi College of Education also didn’t write post UTME in 2018 (which they were used to). Admission was based on SSCE and UTME results.
Best of luck!
