If I Miss Post-UTME, Will They Reschedule Me?

Just like UTME, we may have situations that may warrant admission seekers to miss their post-UTME dates or screening schedules.

A few students, in the past and very recently, missed the TASUED post-UTME date. Some missed the Federal Polytechnic Ede post UTME. Some missed out on attending the Osun State College of Technology, Esa-Oke (OSCOTECH), and Osun State Polytechnic Iree (OSPOLY) physical screening.

These were students who had already registered for the schools' post-UTMEs or screenings. But when it's time to write the entrance exam or attend the physical checking of their credentials, they missed out.

The reasons for this mistake are not important again. Will the concerned candidates be recalled or rescheduled for the post-UTME or they should just forget it?

This post will answer your questions with some experiences shared.

You May Be Lucky For A Reschedule If You Missed Your Post-UTME/Screening

In recent times, we have witnessed instances when aspirants, who missed their tests, were called on new dates.

Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED), for example, usually conducts two to three rounds of the post-UTME. This is because the university usually sells its form continually. So, they call for the first set of candidates who registered earlier. Those who applied, after the 1st round, will be called for the 2nd round. 

If you missed the first round, which was your own schedule, you could be rescheduled for the second one. However, it will be wise to call the school helpline (TAUSED helpline 08065426227) to report you missed the exam. The officer may ask for a few pieces of information before promising to reschedule you for the next round.

However, if you can't speak with the helpline, you try the school ICT or admission office for help. You can also keep checking your portal to know if/when they're calling for the 2nd round later. And if you're automatically called, meet the new date. If they reschedule automatically, once you know they're calling for the second round, proceed to the school and join those scheduled for that round. They will make provisions for the affected candidates especially if the population of the affected candidates is high.

This kind of arrangement is not only applicable to TAUSED,  some other schools, conducting post-UTME, usually have similar provisions.

Similarly, if the exams are scheduled to hold for days on a roll, for example, the 3rd, 4th, 5th, etc. of a month, but you missed yours on the 3rd, you can go to the school on the 4th or 5th to report your idiocy. The management may make a mop-up arrangement.

Like above, if your school has different day schedules such as the 3rd, 4th, and 5th of the month, and you miss your day, try to find out if the school has announced a specific day for those who missed their own schedules. In this case, you can wait for that day and be present for the mop-up.

Some Schools Will Allow You to Do the Screening If You Missed the General Schedule

For some schools, using physical screening, candidates will be allowed to walk into the campus, at any time before the admission lists are compiled or before admission ends for the year, to do their own screening.

For example, OSCOTECH, OSPOLY, etc., after the initial and general schedules are announced, will still entertain candidates to come on campus and do their own screening with their own proposed departments.

This is because some of these schools will keep selling admission forms, even after the first schedule ends. For those who obtain forms, after that schedule and those who missed it, they'll still be attended to, at the dedicated screening centers or departments until they're about to release lists or before the admission year ends.

For Some Schools, Forget It, If You Missed Your Post UTME/Screening

Some schools, especially universities, won't give you the grace to resit for a missed post-UTME. For post-UTME, generally, you might be out of luck if you missed your own date. You could still be lucky with schools using screening though.

From experience, universities such as Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Ahmadu Bello University, the University of Benin (UNIBEN), the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN), the University of Ibadan (UI), to mention a few, will not reschedule you for exams or screening.

In such a case, the best option is to let go and change your institution to any available school as very many schools will still be selling forms till the admission year ends.


It's not uncommon to see aspirants, who missed screenings, be rescheduled. However, in most cases, for post-UTMEs, you may be out of luck for many universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education.

Even for the post-UTME, don't give up if you missed your schedule, you can go on another date if the exam is still going on, and you may be lucky if they mix you with those writing for that day or round. 

You can as well contact the school helpline, ICT center, or admission office to know if there is any provision.
