This is to inform you that the Vice
Chancellors, Rectors of all tertiary
institutions have agreed to conduct Post- UTME for 1st Choice Candidates between 2nd July to 16th October, 2018, while Post-
UTME for 2nd Choice Candidates will commence between 17th October to 17th December.
If we are to interpret the released dates literally, it simply means that all institutions will conduct two sets of Post-UTME Screenings. The first will be for those who
selected the institution as 1st choice, and later, they will conduct for those who selected them as 2nd choice. No information was released about 3rd or 4th Choice Selections.

Colleges. This information does not really have any significant impact as the respective schools are to give the final cut-off marks for admission, while releasing
their Post-UTME Information.
This is all the information we have about this, so if you have any further information, please post it as a comment below.
