The Federal Government’s directive for post-UTME to be
scrapped seems to have come at a time when schools have
already started putting plans in place to conduct the
exercise for 2016/2017 academic session. Some schools
had even announced theirs before the directive came.
It was expected that the scrapping of post-UTME should
mean that schools will not demand screening fees/charges
from candidates. But going by observations, that is not the
The major reason being that schools have already invested
in logistics and planning in preparation towards the conduct
of 2016/2017 post-UTME before the directive to scrap it
came. So they have to recuperate what they have already
invested, hence the reason for screening fee/charges.
Similarly, you must have observed that institutions that

screening" and prepare for post-UTME as it has always
In many schools, the so called "admission screening" will be

If you have been cooling off, you better start blazing now.
Get the relevant materials and start preparing. Don't forget
that one key material you need in your preparation is the
Post-UTME Past questions and solutions of your choice
schools. Probably schools will be able to adjust to the
directive to scrap post-UTME entirely by next year. But for
this year, we have to face the reality.
Wish you success.
