ANSWERS TO SOME PROBLEMS FACED BY UNILORIN DEGREE ASPIRANTS ON POST UTME REGISTRATIONS

Are you one of the aspirants of the University of Ilorin who had been facing some issues since the Post UTME/DE registration started? Sorry dude. But I have solutions and ways forward for your challenges.

Kindly read to the end.

The Registration Portal Is Not Opening

Sometimes, after the university has announced the commencement of their post UTME registration, you may end up meeting the page not responding or opening, after visiting. Sometimes, if the portal opens, it returns the error below.

504 ERROR The request could not be satisfied. CloudFront attempted to establish a connection with the origin, but either the attempt failed or the origin closed the connection. We can't connect to the server for this app or website at this time. There might be too much traffic or a configuration error. Try again later, or contact the app or website owner. If you provide content to customers through CloudFront, you can find steps to troubleshoot and help prevent this error by reviewing the CloudFront documentation.

If you're seeing this error or the page is not opening at all, this is simply a technical issue with the application/screening portal. The university is working to get things back to normal.

In other words, you have to be sure you regularly recheck the portal so as to know when things are back to normal.

In case you're afraid the closing date of the form is near and you may not be able to register if the situation remains the same, I have good news for you. If this issue continues to an unreasonable number of days, the university management will be sure the registration is extended for the affected number of days. So, no panic!

You did a change of institution/course on JAMB Portal but has not reflected on the school portal


In this case, you will have to keep checking the post UTME screening portal regularly to see if the course has been changed.

Before the change will happen at all,
  1. JAMB will have to send your new choice to the school.
  2. School ICT must equally upload these changes to the school database for you to proceed with your registration
  3. All the above activities will occur (as expected) before the post UTME closing date.

NOTE: You can still proceed with your post UTME registration if the new course had not reflected on the school portal as the portal will give you access to pick that course while the registration is going on.

In your case, 
  1. You should consider another course as advertised by the management.
  2. Make sure you check the cut off mark for the new course and be sure you have that
  3. Ensure you have the correct UTME and SSCE subject combination right for the course as well
  4. NOTE: UNILORIN change of course on the portal does not require another payment (like we had in the previous years)
  5. IMPORTANT: Make sure you do the same change of course on the JAMB portal too. This is highly necessary.

Passport Not Displaying on Your Portal and Printouts

One of the issues you are likely going to see if you had changed to UNILORIN is not seeing your passport on the portal during the registration or the photo not displaying after printing your confirmation and exam slip.

If I'm not wrong what happened to you was that you didn't choose UNILORIN during the JAMB registration. You later changed to the university during the change of institutions/curses period.

In this case, when the university was collecting data of candidates that changed to them from JAMB, passports are usually not included. This is why the passport photo side of your portal remains blank and empty.

The university is aware of this omission. Hence, they don't expect you to upload the photo manually. They will make provision for your excuse during the exam if you have your JAMB change of institution slip with you during the exam. 

You should also try to go along with some passports in case they want you to attach that manually for the exams.

You want to make your payment but you received “Payment Parameter is Missing or Occur” Error 

In this case,
  1. Keep trying. The school ICT is working continually on these issues. I had been able to pay for some candidates with this issue after retrying a couple of times. I suggest retrying like twice a day – morning and evening.
  2. I suggest you change your browser too. This seems to work well. Consider using Internet Explorer or Chrome instead if you have been using other browsers earlier  
  3. Note that the screening remains open till the announced date. So relax.

You’re unable to proceed with the screening registration because of the wrong UTME subject combination 

I have seen people in these situations. Anyway, UNILORIN can be so stubborn sometimes. A candidate of mine combined the right subjects in UTME for Educational Management - as detailed in the JAMB brochure. Yet, the school says it’s wrong.

Unfortunately, they didn’t tell us their right subjects. Checking on their website for the right subject, they didn’t list Educational Management among their courses.

You see that!

A notification page for a student with a wrong subject combination for UTME. Consider the change of course option.
Click on the picture to see clearly.

But she is already a victim. And if you’re too, you need to:
  1. Consider the change of course to another course.
  2. Make sure to check the school portal for the new course and be sure you have the right SSCE and UTME subjects for the new course.

I think I have been able to help with this quick guide. If you have further questions, kindly drop it in the comment section below.

Important Information 

If you changed your course on the school's portal but you have not done that on the JAMB portal, please quickly do the change with JAMB. This will make your choices conform to each other.

In recent years, candidates who didn't do the change of course on the JAMB portal were later denied admission by the University of Ilorin. Please take note.

Exams Date and Venue Blank on the Printout/Portal

After completing and submitting your registration, you may meet your exams schedule blank. The venue and date of the test show no details. This is not uncommon. But why?

This is because the university might not have scheduled candidates for exams yet. You'll be informed when to reprint your schedule slip if the university resolves to conduct the CBT test. Kindly stay active with your phone for possible SMS and frequently check the school portal for news.

You should also be reaching the exams-slip page, it may be updated any time sooner.

NEED a guide, further explanation, update or answer on something? Check if that has been covered on this blog by searching your question on Google and add schoolcontents.info in front e.g  OAU Post UTME + schoolcontents.info.  My posts on it or related ones will be displayed for you by Google.

  36. I changed my course on the unilorin portal cuz I didn’t meet up with the cut off of the initial course I wanted was English then I changed it to French on the portal. After uploading my o levels, I didn’t upload Yoruba cuz I had E8 so I uploaded only 8 subjects but they are 9 in total minus Yoruba. So unilorin selected only 4 instead of 5 o’levels. So I couldn’t proceed cuz I’m only seeing 4 o’levels. What’s the issue is Yoruba compulsory for French? But it wasn’t stated in the French inquires. I want to know what’s wrong cuz I haven’t printed out my form yet.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. For UNILORIN, they require one language in that O'level aside the English. I think in your case, it's Yoruba they want to pick. And now that you don't have the Yoruba, I'm sorry.

      My advice if you to change to another qualified course, that you meet its cut-off mark, and that your O'level and UTME subjects are suitable for. After changing on the school portal, make sure you change on the JAMB portal too.

    1. What happened, in your case, was that you did change of institution to the university. So, when collecting your data form JAMB, passport was not included. In this case, you don't have to worry. The university is are of this issue with candidates that did change of institution to them. They will allow you to do your exam when the time come. Make sure you take a few passport photos along when going for the exam. That's all.

  42. Dear Mr. Tolani,
    I did a change of institution/course to Unilorin/Computer Engineering.
    On Unilorin post utme portal I was able to do the candidate verification and successfully made payment for utme form but on login back to complete utme screening registration I had issues. The biodata tab did not upload the details I filled, it just shows "Loading" indefinitely while the other tabs are greyed out.
    I managed to fill other tabs by right clicking on them and opening in another tab. O'Level Results, Scheduling and attestation tabs were filled successfully but Five (5) Best Relevant O'Level tab only allowed me to enter 4 subjects (English, Maths, Chemistry and Physics) remaining Further Maths to be filled.
    I have tried severally on different browsers (Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome & Firefox) both on phone and on Computer Laptop but the situation persists
    Kindly advise on how to resolve this.
