Don’t Charge More Than N2,000 For Post-UTME, FG Cautions Schools
Don’t Charge More Than N2,000 For Post-UTME. The Federal Government of Nigeria has warned tertiary institutions to that it would sanction any tertiary institution which charges more than Two Thousand Naira (N2,000) for the upcoming Post-UTME screening exercise.
If you have been wondering about how much Post-UTME forms will cost for the 2020/2021 admission, there you have it. Post-UTME screening forms for 2020 will cost nothing more than N2,000.
This has been so for a couple of years since the Minister of Education, Alhaji Adamu Adamu, gave the warning at the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Policy Meeting on Admissions into Tertiary Institutions in Gbongan, Osun State, Nigeria in 2018.
Adamu said: “At the 2017 policy meeting, I endorsed that any institution which was interested in conducting any form of Post-UTME screening could do so, but that the gross charge for the screening should not be more than N2,000.
So, one can safely say that is what will apply to the 2020/2021 post-UTME screening too. We will keep you updated on this topic.

” Once again, let me caution heads of tertiary institutions that it would not be tolerated for any institution to charge any fee beyond the approved two thousand naira (N2,000).
The minister, however, said that the policy meeting would continue to be the forum where the agenda, guidelines, modalities, and timelines would be set for the purpose of admissions to universities, polytechnics, monotechnics and colleges of education in Nigeria.
“Therefore, no admission to any tertiary institutions should be announced before the policy meeting.
” It is appreciated that the meeting is being held early enough for the commencement of the new session.
