After JAMB, the next questions candidates are asking is when is post UTME coming up and what is the latest news about universities and their post UTME exam.
This post will try to answer that question for you, based on the known periods for post UTME screening exams.
When is post UTME coming up?
The usual practice is that after JAMB exam, the student has a few months to prepare for the post UTME exam. Usually, most schools conduct their post UTME screening around the same period of the year, with usually one or two months differences depending on the academic calendar of the individual schools.
However, from the previous years post UTME exams, we get ideas of the time Nigerian universities and other higher institutions in the country will conduct their post UTME screening exams.
Periods for post UTME screening exam
When will post UTME registration start? The first thing to note is that post UTME registration comes before the actual screening test. I am sure you already know that, but just in case.
Second thing is that some schools have already announced their post UTME screening. See details below.
Based on the last post UTME exams
From one of the previous post-UTME schools were mandated to conduct their post UTME screening from 2nd July to 16th October, while Post-UTME for 2nd Choice Candidates was set between 17th October to 17th December.
When will post UTME screening test start for other schools?
Post UTME exam usually holds as early as the last quarter of the year. As I pointed out above, some schools start very early. So, it depends on the school’s academic calendar.
Also, new JAMB policies may encourage schools to conduct their post UTME earlier than normal.
