Will UNILORIN Write Post UTME or Screening?

Nature of UNILORIN Post UTME/Exams
While making the decision whether to choose UNILORIN in UTME or consider changing to her, candidates may want to know if the university conducts post UTME exams for her aspirants or she uses the screening method.

The difference between the two methods is obvious. If a school uses the Post UTME test, you have to prepare for the computer-based entrance exams before you can be offered admission. If it’s only admission screening, such a university won’t bother you to write any exams apart from UTME you had done earlier. 

For detailed differences, read “Post UTME: Will it be Exams or Admission Screening?”.

To the question - if you have to prepare for entrance exams or ready for screening, the answer is YES, the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) uses Post UTME except for the 2020/2021 admission year. And that was because of the COVID-19.

In other words, you will be tested this year. The university uses a computer-based test for its applicants. The exams test them in English, Mathematics and General papers.

In fact, for this year post UTME, the university had announced as below.

Admission will be based on an aggregate of UTME/DE score (50%); Post-UTME screening score (30%); and five (5) relevant O’ Level grades (20%)

This is an indication that the University will conduct post-UTME and grade candidates on the term detailed above.

Having said that, you should take a look at how the university will conduct the exams below.

Nature of UNILORIN Post UTME To Expect This Year

  1. Before the exams, the management will announce the sales of their post-UTME form usually called the pre-screening admission exercise.
  2. Applicants are expected to register online. During the registration, you’re to fill in your O’level results. Your JAMB details must have been obtained from Joint Admission and Matriculation Board directly by the university.
  3. After the registration, your printout should contain your exam date and venue; as candidates can choose whether to write the test at the Lagos center or at the main campus – Ilorin.
  4. After the test, you must be above 50% before any hope of admission. If you score less, immediately consider changing to any institution to any other school whose post-UTME is still open. If you’re competing for courses like Law, Medicine, Pharmacy, Nursing, etc., you may need to score above 70 or 80 before any hope at all. Less completive courses may still work with 60 and thereabout.
  5. The university will later forward the lists of admitted candidates to JAMB to upload to CAPS. This is why you should continually be checking your admission status on CAPS so you can accept the admission on it when/if offered.
  6. After this, print the JAMB admission letter and wait for the school to upload the same list to the school portal for checking and acceptance.
