Reports have it that University of Abuja (UNIABUJA) opted not to conduct Post-UTME Screening test. The screening that took place was only verbal and very brief. Candidates were only checked in by security and made appear before a panel for a brief interview.
It was also reported that only candidates were let through school gates and shuttled aboard buses to the screening venue in order of the school authorities. They had to present an original of their matriculation result slip and a N1,000 bank draft for the screening.
“They didn’t ask any questions,” said a student who put in for microbiology. “It wasn’t like an interview. They just looked at my result, looked at my score and other papers, then they said we will hear from them.”
UNIABUJA got around the hassle of ongoing strike by making its screening a non-academic and strictly academic exercise, negating need for lecturers to set and grade test scripts.
The two-day screening made brisk business for traders who pre-bought N1,000 (One thousand naira) bank drafts–a requirement for access–and sold them to candidates at the gates for up to N2500.
The Candidates say commercial banks also increased the prices on drafts, charging up to N1,700.
Good Luck to all the UNIABUJA Post-UTME Candidates.
