No Comments

The Federal Government has now given universities permission to again hold Post Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations as a procedure for admission into public institutions.

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu made this known in Abuja noting that post-UTME across all public universities, polytechnics and other tertiary institutions were earlier scrapped in order to know what was going on within institutions.

Now, the universities can either decide to hold the exam or not.

He said:

"We are going to allow universities to have some choice. Universities can now decide to organise post-UTME, if they want."

The minister however urged schools to make the fees for post-UTME moderately considerable for parents.

"We have asked them not to impose huge financial burden on the parents. The burden should not be more than what they can bear", he noted.

Aside, the minster expressed confidence in the examination conducted by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and also applauded the management of JAMB for remitting N5 billion to the Federal Government as the highest money so far in the last 40 years of JAMB's existence.
