UNILAG Postpones Post-UTME Screening Indefinitely

The University of Lagos has disclosed that the 2020/2021 Post-UTME screening exercise has been postponed indefinitely.

This was revealed in a press statement titled ‘2020/2021 post-UTME: notice of postponement’ on Thursday.

However, the school had earlier revealed that the screening would hold between Monday, November 30, and Saturday, December 12, 2020.

The press statement read, “The University wishes to inform all prospective candidates of the 2020/2021 Post-UTME Screening exercise earlier slated for Monday, November 30 to Saturday, December 12, 2020, that the screening has been postponed.

“New dates will be communicated as soon as possible. Any inconvenience occasioned by

The post-UTME screening date had already seen a lot of changes as it was initially slated for Wednesday, November 18 to Thursday, December 3, 2020, but later rescheduled to hold from Monday, November 30 to Saturday, December 12, 2020.

The reasons for the many changes, according to UNILAG, was as a result of a change in the date of the 2020 Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) of the National Examination Council (NECO).

The school administrators in its defense said: “The exercise was rescheduled following the rescheduling of the 2020 SSCE of NECO.

“(It is also) in compliance with the directive from the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) that all institutions should conduct their Post-UTME screening exercise after the completion of the 2020 NECO examination.
