The federal government has scrapped post Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) for candidates. This is not really a new development, but there have been some confusions as some schools have been putting on sales POST-UTME forms. The Minister of Education, Mr. Adamu, on Monday, made it clear that tertiary institutions should stop the conduct of Post-UTME. He directed those who have already advertised the exercise under any guise to retrace their steps immediately or face appropriate sanction. He equally directed that all tertiary institutions who before now have conducted the exercise to return the money paid by candidates as the exercise stands annulled.
These Post UTME forms were been sold with different names, Michel Okpara University called their’s IQ Screening. But Indications show that the postal for the 2016 admission screening registration of the Micheal Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike (MOUA) has been disabled as candidates have been unable to proceed with their registration. When we investigated the reasons for this , we concluded that this is connected with the recent directive by the minister of education that all forms of post-UTME exercises in disguise by tertiary institution be stopped.
The Minister of Education, Mr. Adamu announced that Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) pegged the cut-off mark for admission for 2016 at 180. The minister has also arranged to meet with Vice-chancellors, rectors, and provosts as well as other stakeholders to work out modalities for the conduct of admission screening.
