The Aftermath Of Putme Cancellation by Genius101(m): 6:55pm On Oct 07, 2016
saw this post on Facebook and i decided to share it as i'm also greatly affected by the cruelty of this year's admission modalities...lalaa please help move this to front page biko..
Institutions abide by the FG's "No Post UTME" rule but madeadmissions worse. Aspirants were still made to pay forscreenings not conducted, some were asked to travel longdistances, risking their lives at extra expenses, only forsubmission of documents, making the reasons for theabolishment of Post Utme exams to be utterly defeated inthe first place.As if those are not enough, institutions came up withdisheartening admission modalities. Some just releasedadmission lists after collecting aspirants money in the nameof admission screening registration. Their criteria foradmissions remained puzzles to many. Some even releasedresults with no clear information on how the results werearrived at. Some publicized their scoring systems combiningOlevel grades and UTME results of varying proportions.Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife used 70/30 UTME/Olevelwith two subjects' grades in addition to the five relevantsubjects to the chosen courses of study. University of Lagosand University of Ibadan used 50/50 UTME/Olevel withdifferent styles. All these grading systems are contrary to theadmission guidelines obtainable atwww.jamb.gov.ng.The 50/50 scoring system looks just and fair but it's not. Let'sexamine University of Ibadan system (obtainable fromwww.ui.edu.ng). A1-6, B2-5, B3-4, C4-3, C5-2 and C6-1. Fiverelevant Olevel subjects are graded and the total divided by30, then multiplied by 50 give X. UTME score divided by 400,multiplied by 50 gives Y. X+Y gives the aggregate which mustnot be less than 50 for a candidate to be qualified foradmission consideration. Is this actually 50/50?200 UTME score was advertised as the minimum score to beeligible and at least 5 credit passes in either one or twosittings depending on course of study. A candidate with 200in UTME already has 25/50 in UTME but a candidate with C6in all his five required subjects has just 8.3/50 in Olevel.50/50 indeed! A candidate with C5 in his five relevantsubjects and 250 UTME scores has 47.9 as aggregate whichmean he can't be admitted whereas another candidate withB3 in his five relevant subjects and 200 UTME has 58.3 asaggregate and can be admitted. Aspirants with below creditin each of five Olevel subjects have 0/50 in Olevel whileaspirants with UTME scores below 200 can score as high as24.875 on this scoring system. Candidates with two Olevelsittings, even though advertised as allowed, will have thepoints scored from the second result halved before it can beadded. Is this justice coming from the Senate of an ivorytower?The above is just one of the various awkward admissionmodalities employed by our tertiary institutions for thisyear's admission and yet the Federal Government, civilorganizations, National Assembly and the Media had beensilent on this issue affecting about a million of this country's"future leaders". I call on President Muhammadu Buhari'slead administration to see to this as this is the firstadmission that will be fully conducted under the watch of hisgovernment. Is this the change we deserve in the nation'sadmission process?Kindly let something be done in earnest to prevent theseinjustices and impunity. In preparation for next admission,there should be a stakeholder's meeting on admissionprocess, duly publicized and let each institution publish herpeculiar admission guidelines to enable students make thebest choices. Not changing the rules when the game is on.God bless Nigeria.#BRINGBACKOURPOSTUTME#(CBT)

THE AFTERMATH OF THE CANCELLATION OF POST UTME EXAMS.
Institutions abide by the FG's "No Post UTME" rule but made admissions worse. Aspirants were still made to pay for screenings not conducted, some were asked to travel long distances, risking their lives at extra expenses, only for submission of documents, making the reasons for the abolishment of Post Utme exams to be utterly defeated in the first place.
As if those are not enough, institutions came up with disheartening admission modalities. Some just released admission lists after collecting aspirants money in the name of admission screening registration. Their criteria for admissions remained puzzles to many. Some even released results with no clear information on how the results were arrived at. Some publicized their scoring systems combining Olevel grades and UTME results of varying proportions.
Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife used 70/30 UTME/Olevel with two subjects' grades in addition to the five relevant subjects to the chosen courses of study. University of Lagos and University of Ibadan used 50/50 UTME/Olevel with different styles. All these grading systems are contrary to the admission guidelines obtainable atwww.jamb.gov.ng.
The 50/50 scoring system looks just and fair but it's not. Let's examine University of Ibadan system (obtainable from www.ui.edu.ng). A1-6, B2-5, B3-4, C4-3, C5-2 and C6-1. Five relevant Olevel subjects are graded and the total divided by 30, then multiplied by 50 give X. UTME score divided by 400, multiplied by 50 gives Y. X+Y gives the aggregate which must not be less than 50 for a candidate to be qualified for admission consideration. Is this actually 50/50?
200 UTME score was advertised as the minimum score to be eligible and at least 5 credit passes in either one or two sittings depending on course of study. A candidate with 200 in UTME already has 25/50 in UTME but a candidate with C6 in all his five required subjects has just 8.3/50 in Olevel. 50/50 indeed! A candidate with C5 in his five relevant subjects and 250 UTME scores has 47.9 as aggregate which mean he can't be admitted whereas another candidate with B3 in his five relevant subjects and 200 UTME has 58.3 as aggregate and can be admitted. Aspirants with below credit in each of five Olevel subjects have 0/50 in Olevel while aspirants with UTME scores below 200 can score as high as 24.875 on this scoring system. Candidates with two Olevel sittings, even though advertised as allowed, will have the points scored from the second result halved before it can be added. Is this justice coming from the Senate of an ivory tower?
The above is just one of the various awkward admission modalities employed by our tertiary institutions for this year's admission and yet the Federal Government, civil organizations, National Assembly and the Media had been silent on this issue affecting about a million of this country's "future leaders".

Kindly let something be done in earnest to prevent these injustices and impunity. In preparation for next admission, there should be a stakeholder's meeting on admission process, duly publicized and let each institution publish her peculiar admission guidelines to enable students make the best choices. Not changing the rules when the game is on.
God bless Nigeria.

Our education system is in recess, the above system of no postutme is a setback. As seen in the process adopted by UI henceforth, if you have below A1's in your o'level, you should not rejoice over it. Rules are being changed when the game is on. Credit is what the rule started but now it is all about distinctions.

GUYS, GO ALL OUT AND GET REGISTERED IN A MIRACLE CENTER OUR GOVT HAS MADE A1'S A CORE IN SECURING ADMISSION.

In just two years time, our admission process will be purge into further crisis
