Federal Government Scraps Post UTME

Nigeria’s Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, has scrapped the conduction of post UTMEs in Nigerian universities and other tertiary institution, a report from The Nation says.

According to him, the examination conducted by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is sufficient and that there’s no need for other examination to be conducted by universities after JAMB.

“As far as I am concerned the nation has confidence in what JAMB is doing. The universities should not be holding another examination and if the universities have any complain against JAMB let them bring it and then we address it,” he said.
