This is an update of our previous post titled “UNN Post Utme 2016 – What You Must Know“.
Truth be told, there has never been any time historically that the Nigerian education sector has been in such a difficult situation as this year, with respect to admission into higher institutions. The uncertainties are so much that even those of us in the information sharing business does not have definite answers to some of the anxious questions asked by many admission seekers – no thanks to the hasty directives issued by the education minister without proper consultations with all the stakeholders. As at yesterday evening, we still tried to reach someone in the school administration for comments on the present situation but no proper clarification also came from their end. However, from our experience with UNN and the situation on ground, we will answer some of your questions using the points below.
- This is not the first time a situation similar to this has occurred in the Nigerian education sector. JAMB and higher institution authorities had always fought silently to determine who controls admission into the institutions. This “superiority” fight had always ended in the favour of the schools and appears to be headed the same direction this year as UNN has just announced her Post Utme(now referred to as Admission Screening) details. The school even went ahead to put a price tag of N2,500 for the online application against all odds. If you haven’t heard that the online registration has commenced, click on the link below to get the details;
- We ‘ve heard that some candidates said they won’t apply for the screening exercise, positing that JAMB instructed institutions not to organize any screening especially for candidates whose status on the JAMB eligibility portal says “Not Posted yet”.
It is instructive to note that UNN actually stated that candidates “..who selected her as their University of First Choice in the 2016 UTME and scored 200 and above ” can apply. Now the question you should ask yourself is; Wouldn’t you rather “loose” N2,500 to UNN and be on the safe side, than loose your chance of admission for another one year when things eventually go as you did not expect? The choice is yours. However, we advise you register for the screening sooner than later as the closing date is fast approaching.
- For candidates having challenges generating the payment invoice. (I.e. Those claiming a Log-In box is blocking them).
Please, follow the instructions carefully and exactly as it was given. Be sure to use a computer device and not mobile phones as this will give you a clearer view of the unnportal’s navigation menu.
Also, we advise you do the registration at an established or renowned cyber cafe within your vicinity so they may guide you properly, following the instructions provided here. Make sure you are physically present when your details are being uploaded to ensure everything is entered correctly. Note also that your basic details must appear on the UnnPortal application page as soon as you enter your JAMB reg number in the space provided, before you should proceed to generate invoice and make payment. And not forgetting that you should be wary of online scammers. Don’t just give your money to anyone you don’t trust.
- What about Direct Entry?
Directly entry screening in the past usually takes place few weeks after UTME candidates have been screened. However, there is no official information from the school authorities on this year’s direct entry screening. We advise you visit this site regularly for any new update.
- Will there be any exam and when is the date?
The last instruction on the application form information published by the school authorities clearly states “Await the announcement from the University.” The said announcement may be about the screening exam. So, we advise you continue to prepare like there will be an exam as the information may come as sudden as that of the application form came. Get the Total Victory Solution Set and Felar 909 handbook as quick revision guides so you are not caught unawares.
- What are the documents required for the screening application?
Please, click on the link below for a full list of the required documents;
- For Awaiting Results candidates, after selecting AR during your online registration, go ahead and upload a scanned copy of your O’Level Exam ID card(s) or Photo card(s) with details of your exam number, centre, and year of exam fully visible.
