Never a time has the school mentioned it will be holding examination since the  application of post-utme for this session commenced, rather the management had continuously extended its application form to accommodate many of those using awaiting result.

But, what does one mean by screening or Post-UTME?

Screening and post-utme is just a confused term amongst students which we don’t want you to also be a victim of.

The general term for the system that various Universities goes through after they must have sat for UTME or A’level exams is called Post-UTME Screening.

Take note, post-utme and screening are together as one term, and it can be exam or no exam, Post-Utme screening is just the general term to classify the process Institutions go through before admission placement.

In the University of Ilorin, it is officially identified and stated as Pre-Admission Screening Exercise.

This exercise could be an examination which acts as the method of Admission screening.

Also it could be the later, physical or online screening where students are placed base on their performance in both O and Alevel.

So avoid the confusion that comes with these terms.


Why will Unilorin not write Post-Utme exam in 2020?

So if the University of Ilorin has settled for not holding an examination in 2020, what will be the cause?

If other schools like, Unilag, Uniben, OAU and ABU have fixed dates for their Post-Utme exam, what is holding the University of Ilorin?


So that is the question a lot of you might want to ask and it will be addressed now.

The management of the University of Ilorin have not made any statement as to why exams won’t be held.

Students can only doubt because they did not find any information on the school portal prior to this update, another main reason is why did the University of Ilorin kept the space for Exam date, and exam venue empty in the Post-Utme Screening schedule slip for those who have registered?


The management of the University of Ilorin may have not highlighted or explicitly stated through its undergraduates portal that there would or would not be an exam for reasons best known to them, but internally they have expressed their concerns and what will happen.


So it’s left for Aspirants and you to wait and see how it unfolds.


Reasons for not holding an exam can not be definite because a lot of issues arises but in a short, the pandemic which affected the state and economy of the world, and the current security issues that Nigeria is facing may have lead to the final conclusion of the University of Ilorin.


Take note: The National Examination Council on October 25th, postponed its ongoing exam over the same destabilized state of the economy which may have been foreseen by the management of the University of Ilorin who is expected to screen thousands of students.
