The authorities of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) has postponed, indefinitely, the 2020/2021 Post-UTME Screening exercise, earlier scheduled to take place between Monday, November 30, to Saturday, November 12, 2020.
The new development was contained in a press statement titled ‘2020/2021 post-UTME: notice of postponement’ issued on Thursday.
It reads, “The University wishes to inform all prospective candidates of the 2020/2021 Post-UTME Screening exercise earlier slated for Monday, November 30 to Saturday, December 12, 2020, that the screening has been postponed.
“New dates will be communicated as soon as possible. Any inconvenience occasioned by
this postponement is highly regretted.”
Recall that the post-UTME was initially slated for Wednesday, November 18 to Thursday, December 3, 2020.
It was later rescheduled to hold from Monday, November 30 to Saturday, December 12, 2020.
The school authorities had given the sudden change in the date for the 2020 Senior School Certificate Examination as an excuse for the earlier postponement, adding “(It is also) in compliance with the directive from the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) that all institutions should conduct their Post-UTME screening exercise after the completion of the 2020 NECO examination.”
No reason was, however, given for the latest change in the schedule.
