Reps Move to Scrap Post UTME Exams

The House of Representatives has urged all higher institutions across the country to henceforth put an end to post JAMB and the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination screening. Lawmakers lamented that after payments and undergoing rigorous registration and examination processes as a final step to gaining admissions into Higher institutions, universities subject students to another internal examination, on payment of yet another fee without any consideration for indigent parents and their wards. Honorable Ademorin Kuye who lead the motion on the floor of the house during Wednesday plenary argued that, if universities could repose trust in the examinations conducted by WAEC and NECO by accepting their results, then management of higher institutions must also accept them. Kuye urged his colleagues to support the motion to help hasten the process to scrap post JAMB/UTME examinations.
