Candidates Should Not Buy Post-UTME Forms --- NUC

The National University Commission (NUC) has announced that prospective students seeking admission into tertiary institutions in the country should not buy any form requesting for Post-UTME screening. This came as a re-iteration of the commitment of the NUC to scrap the exercise in all higher institutions in Nigeria.

“Candidates should NOT buy Post-UTME forms from any tertiary institution as Post UTME remains cancelled” was the message posted by NTA’s twitter handle alongside a picture showing The Public Relations officer of the Nigerian Universities Commission, Ibrahim Yakasai in what appears to be a on-air interview possibly about the recent policy by the FG.

The comment solidifies the stance by the FG to scrap the Post UTME and also allow institutions the chance to screen candidates sent to them by JAMB – However the means, or details of what FG Means by screening is still up for anyone’s comprehension as they didn’t make it clear and Some Universities do infact call their Post Utme Exams “Post-UTME Screening Exercise”. Meanwhile the University Of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) has announced the sale of 2016/2017 Post-Utme form in a newspaper despite the clear directive from the FG of scrapping the post-Utme exams.
