UNILORIN Post UTME Portal Issues, Change of Course and Payment Problems and Solutions

UNILORIN Post UTME Portal Issues, Change of Course and Payment Problems and Solutions


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.

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 August 6 when the screening is expected to end.

If You don’t meet the Departmental Cut Off Mark 

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 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 JAMB portal too. This is highly necessary.

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 couples of times. I suggest retrying like twice a day – morning and evening.
  2. I suggest you change your browser too. This seems working well. Consider using Internet Explorer instead if you have been using other browsers earlier  
  3. Note that the screening remains opened till August 6, 2018. So relax.

You’re unable to proceed for the screening registration because or wrong UTME subject combination 

I have seen couples of these situations. Anyway, UNILORIN can so stubborn sometimes. A candidate of mine combined 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!

But she 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 question, 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 JAMB portal, please quickly do the change with JAMB. This will make your choices conform with each other.

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