The Rivers State University (RSUT), has scheduled the date for Post-UTME exercise for students interested in studying in the institution, despite the law abolishing the screening.
It will be recalled that the Federal Government on the 2nd of June, 2016 scrapped the conduct of Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) for candidates seeking admission into the higher institution.
Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu in his words, said: “As far as I am concerned, the nation has confidence in what JAMB is doing.
The universities should not be holding another examination and if the universities have any complained against JAMB let them bring it and then we address it.”
But, the Rivers State University, in an announcement signed by the Registrar, D.C Odimabo has released a schedule for conducting the examination.
“All candidates who chose the Rivers State University of Science and Technology during the 2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and have received notification to that effect from JAMB are hereby requested to take note of the following:
“The screening exercise for admission of candidates will be administered only on candidates who chose RSUST and have received notification to that effect from JAMB.
“Only candidates who scored 180 and above in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) are qualified for the screening exercise in all the Faculties of the University.
“Candidates must possess the basic five (5) O’ level credit passes in accordance with the University’s Entry Requirements (Faculty/ Departmental) before applying for the screening exercise. It is mandatory that Candidates should upload their O ‘Level results and a scanned copy of their passport photograph. However, candidates who are awaiting their O’level results may apply but should so indicate.
It further noted that candidates are expected to register for the screening exercise online and to also pay a stipulated amount of money for the Application fee, Test Fee, and Computer Demonstration Exercise.
