• Universities are up to the task right now. A lot of aspirants kept on complaining about the screening modalities. Be aware that the Senate of individual schools are saddled with the responsibility to ascertain the screening method. I have be able to follow quite well the screening methods of some major universities apart from those who had their post-UTME before the declaration of its cancellation.

    This is a period where students will sit back and progress both in UTME and SSCE. It’s a 50:50 allocation. This means it is purely impartial. I will be able to mention some schools and relate it well to how they conducted their screening.

    Candidates cry that they pay for online registration when no exam was conducted. Are you aware that some people will handle the screening and there are changes for use of the portal? So why wouldn’t you pay? I clearly remember that I advocated for a pegged price which was adopted and a complaint platform which is available. Post Utme was a way of defrauding the people and there could be manipulation. High prices yet not development in the schools? When you write post utme and your ssce is still a factor to consider, then why go for post utme at all? We have got to complain this period because it started this year but next year, there would be a better turnaround.

    University of Ilorin: University of Ilorin, called for registration and later released admission list. Candidates complain of incredibility. I will say, the mentality we have from the onset that admission is gotten when you are long-legged is what is causing the psychological misunderstanding of the entire process. University of Ilorin admitted students based on merit, catchment and how competitive the course could be. If you applied for engineering course with 200 and C6 you may be dropped but with such score for sociology, you may be admitted.
    Meanwhile, supplementary list is not yet out.

    University of Lagos: This university kindly called for registration, used a 50:50 jamb SSCE ratio. With a 10-9-8-7 scoring system. The result was released then cut off marks then merit list. Interestingly, no much complaints were laid concerning the process except denying NECO students admission. There were laid down rules stating that results released after the deadline will not be acceptable. I will say UNILAG screening method was fair enough. Supplementary list still awaited.

    University of Ibadan: Though cut off mark is yet to be out so no list yet. University of Ibadan took time before calling candidates which means they were looking for right method to use not to go against the FG directive. The University used 50:50 ratio but With 6-5-4-3 Method. This is fair enough but people who couldn’t get up to fifty will be disqualified automatically. You should know University of Ibadan is full and strict for being the best university in Nigeria. Quacks can not be admitted. Federal Universities can not accept what state or private Universities accept. Students aspiring for UI, UNILAG, UNIZIK, UNN, OAU, FUTA, FUNAAB, should know they have to over read.

    Why should you pass jamb and fail SSCE or why should you pass SSCE and fail jamb? They are not complementary. That was the case back then when students just want to have at least C6 to qualify.

    What will be its effect on malpractice?
    Our exam bodies are coming up with anti cheating techniques and I assure you that candidates who PATRIONISE special centres are only wasting time and money as there’s nothing like special centres again. A special centre that couldn’t produce best WAEC candidate? Or have a subject cancelled? Or have all cancelled? You have reasons to shun special centres and prepare well.

    My advice!
    Nigeria is tired of hearing that graduates are unfit for employment. I wonder why a Corps member can not just defend results? It will surely tell when you get your results through dubious means. Get it right today and see the reason why our educational system is on the right path.
