Scrapping of Post-UTME: Varsities to screen candidates on oral and essay before admission

Professor Peter Okebukola who was the former Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission, NUC, disclosed to newsmen that the scrapping of Post-UTME exercise means that tertiary institutions will now go back to the agreement NUC had with Vice-Chancellors in 2004 when it introduced Post-UTME which is to screen candidates on oral interview and written essay.

Professor Peter Okebukola pointed out that tertiary institutions were not suppose to conduct screening for candidates similar to that of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board,  (JAMB) as that was the part of the agreement guiding the introduction of Post UTME. He lamented that tertiary institutions have since deviated from that agreement.

According to him, admission seekers are supposed to attain minimum cognitive competence in the relevant subjects in the discipline they wished to study; which is the aspect JAMB examination covers and also attain competence in written and oral English, critical thinking and ability to present ideas in logical sequence which is what Post-UTME should be all about.
