UNILAG to conduct non-physical post-UTME test, merges 2020/21 session with 2021/22
The Vice Chancellor, University of Lagos, Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, has appealed to public-spirited Nigerians to assist indigent candidates to get tablets, as the university gets set for non-physical post-UTME tests.
Mr Ogundipe, a professor, made the appeal during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Lagos.
He said in the face of the resurgence of COVID-19, all academic activities of the institution, including examinations, will be online.
“We are to conduct our post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (post-UTME) test on February 15 to February 23; that is, it will run for about nine days.
“This examination is going to be an e-examination such that wherever the candidates are, they do not need to come to campus. It is simple and convenient.
“We looked at the issue of indigent candidates, we then decided to see how we can carry them along.
“Right now, we have started talking to some friends of the university and alumni to see how we can get tablets that we can give them.
“We have got the number of these indigent candidates registered for the post-UTME test, and they are above 200,” he told NAN.
Mr Ogundipe said the candidates would need the tablets not just for the purpose of the post-UTME test but also to facilitate other e-learning processes.
