How to Buy Post UTME (DE)/Screening Form Online

As soon as you're done with JAMB UTME, and the results are out, the next step is to obtain the post UTME/screening form of your proposed university, polytechnic, and/or college of education.

Of course, Direct Entry applicants, in most cases, will be required to obtain the post-DE form too. This usually comes out at the same time the UTME candidates are obtaining the post JAMB as well.

However, many candidates won't understand how to obtain their forms online or where to obtain the post UTME/DE or screening form.

Are the forms going to be sold online? Are candidates required to buy and fill out the forms online? Or they're to go to the school, pay for and obtain the form at certain offices? If online, how should it be bought and filled to avoid errors and scammers?

All these questions and similar ones will be in your mind and that's what I'm about to answer in this post.

All Schools Will Sell Their Post-UTME/DE and Screening Forms Online

Literally, all universities, polytechnics, colleges of education, and innovative enterprise institutes will sell their admission forms (post-UTME/DE or screening forms) directly online.

Unlike the old days, when students might be required to obtain paper forms at particular locations or liaison offices, the admission exercise of today generally requires admission seekers to buy and fill forms on the internet.

Of course, candidates are required to pay for and fill such forms on the official websites/portals of the proposed institutions. Hence, it's important for the prospective aspirants to be sure of what they're doing if they must fill the forms online by themselves or using the help of a friend or family.

This is because there are scammers on the Internet luring innocent and unsuspecting admission seekers to pay to them or through a link. The result of which is duping of their students and their parents.

1. Search Using Google If you Don't Know The Official Link

Type to the Google search box the name of that school e.g University of Ilorin, University of Lagos, Ahmadu Bellow University, University of Nigeria Nzuka, University of Benin, Bowen University, Consent University, Federal Polytechnic Ede, Federal Polytechnic Auchi, Osun State Polytechnic Iree, Adeyemi College of Education, Federal College of Education Oyo, The Polytechnic Ibadan, etc

We searched for the University of Ilorin in this example

Be sure these names are correctly typed on the Google search box before you hit the search button

Some results will be displayed for you to check through. It's usually the number 1 result that will be the official website of the institution. And if not, the first result may have the most reliable information for you.

Click on the first result and check the website redirected to confirm if you have at the last part of the URL or website name. If yes, you are more likely on the correct website, if not, be sure to confirm further.

You have to be warned! No school will ask you to make payment into an individual personal account. Payments are usually made during your online registration, not to anybody's account or an agent's or representative's.

While filling out the online form, you will be required to fill in some personal, educational, and similar information. Some forms may require scanning and uploading passport photos, O'level results, and similar individual documents/credentials.

After filling out the form, you will be required to print at least a page or two of acknowledgment slips for future needs.

2. Consider Using The Service of an Experienced Café

See, if you're seeking admission for the first time, it may not be the right approach to do things all by yourself. Cafes are opened to provide online registrations including post-UTME and screening applications. These shops and offices are well around you.

Look for the right one, usually those that have been in business for some years. Experience matters in this case. It takes years of continual work to have the right practical experiences to help admission seekers register error-free. If you don't know the right one to consider, speak to your brothers or sisters who are already in school. They can refer you to the same cafes they used in their time.

These cafes already know the official websites of schools. They can do the registrations more professionally than you or any newbie.

In fact, if you don't know whether the form is already on sale, you can collect their contacts and be asking them from time to time about the sale of the forms. They will check the admission portals for updates and let you know when to come for your registrations, what to take along, and more.
