Post-UTME stands for Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination. It is an examination conducted by universities and other tertiary institutions in Nigeria as part of their admission process. The Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) is the main entrance examination for Nigerian universities, which is conducted by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
After candidates have taken the UTME and received their scores, they are required to participate in the post-UTME examination conducted by their chosen institutions. The post-UTME is designed to assess the candidates’ knowledge and aptitude in the subjects relevant to their chosen course of study. It typically includes questions from subjects such as English language, mathematics, and other relevant subjects depending on the desired course.
The post-UTME score, along with the UTME score, academic qualifications, and other criteria, is considered during the admission process. The aim of the post-UTME is to ensure that candidates admitted into tertiary institutions possess the required knowledge and skills necessary for their chosen courses.
It is important for prospective students in Nigeria to prepare adequately for both the UTME and post-UTME examinations to increase their chances of gaining admission into their desired institutions.
