JAMB: University defies FG, charges N5,000 for post-UTME screening

Contrary to Federal Government’s policy, the Delta State University, Abraka has announced its readiness to conduct “computer-based aptitude tests” in place of post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination for the 2017/2018 academic session.
Besides, the university is charging each candidate N5,000.
This is in addition to N1,000 bank commission, bringing the total cost to N6,000 as against the maximum N2,500 allowed by the government’s order for the screening.
In an official bulletin with reference number S.E. Vol. XXIV No. 36 and dated June 13, 2017, the institution directed candidates to visit its admission portal to “generate a virtual pin with N5,000”.
Candidates were directed to make the payment at Ecobank, Unity Bank, Fidelity Bank, among others.
