Amidst lingering ASUU strike, UNIBEN announces post-UTME, DE screenings dates


The management of University of Benin has fixed dates for its Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, and Direct Entry screenings for 2022/2023 session.

The university, in a notice by its Registrar, Ademola Bobola on Wednesday in Benin, said that the exercise would hold between Nov. 14 and Nov. 25.

Th announcemet came amidst industrial action embarked by lecturers in universities for over six months seeking implementation of the 2009 agreement between the Federal Government and their union, ASUU.

Mr Bobola said that the screening would be conducted in designated centres at the Ugbowo main campus of the institution, using the Computer-Based Test, CBT, mode.

“Only candidates, who applied through JAMB for the 2022/2023 UTME and direct entry admission and chose University of Benin as first choice and scored 200 and above for UTME candidates, are eligible for this screening exercise,” the registrar said.

Mr Bobola, however, referred admission seekers to the institution’s official website for further details.
