Post-Utme as the name implies was designed by specific institution as a means to further screen students for admission. This process involves sitting for another round of examination usually being organized by the host tertiary institution. It is quite understandable how frustrating it could be going through the process of sitting for WAEC exam down to JAMB examination up to the point where you have to sit for some internally organized examination, it is really quite stressing which is why we are to shed light on some salient issue as regards that.

Well, we are now confident lt telling you that Yes, it is possible to secure admission without having tl sit for examination but it is only for selected institution. Post-utme examination is at the discretion of the host tertiary institution and as such, post-utme examinations coming up at a particular time in a year in your host tertiary institution is based on the decision of the tertiary institution.
