The University of Benin has advised prospective students writing the post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (post-UTME) to check for their venue and time online as the examinations commence from August 7 to 14.
The Public Relations Officer of the institution, Mr. Michael Osasuyi, gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Benin on Monday.
He said that prospective students who registered for the examinations and made the university as first choice are qualified for the post-UTME.
Osasuyi said that over 28,000 prospective students registered for the post-UTME in the university, saying that the cut-off mark of the examination remains 200.
‘’In the first place, we must strive for excellence. The students must know that coming to school is a task that they need to take seriously.
‘’Where some of them write the examinations and are not lucky to gain admission or do not meet the cut-off mark, they can try the affiliate institution of the university.
‘’They can also register for the pre-degree, which would last for a year,’’ he said.
