What the Blogs are Saying About Post-UTME
I’ve been receiving calls and messages from jambites and parents to talk about what they heard/read about the 2020/2021 Post-UTME; this is ignited by what they are seeing on the internet about schools already selling their Post-UTME form or something like that. Which is why this blog has to be published to explain how information like this get on the internet, and to also tell the facts about the 2020/2021 session Post-UTME.
Let me state it clearly that no school anywhere in Nigeria is selling their Post-UTME form as at this month. The private schools—because many of them have managed to continue their academic session online—might be planning on their post-UTME already, but they are not selling yet. And talking about the sales of Post-UTME forms, it can’t even be the government schools that are right now on almost 100% shutdown. So in straighter words: no federal or state higher educational institution is selling any Post-UTME form right now. There might be planning on how it’s going to be conducted, but no, they are not selling the forms yet. The authorities of OAU for instance are already making plans on how the Post-UTME would be conducted, but that doesn’t mean they are already selling the forms or they are even ready to conduct the screening anytime soon.
These information about admission processing you see on many of these lazy bloggers’ websites are mostly write-ups lifted from somebody else’s website (they come on here too to lift write-ups), and most of the times they lift these write-ups, they really don’t have the full details on the information in the write-ups. Also, sometimes, these information you see on their platforms can also be their own old posts they just have to publish or promote again just for clouts or to generate large number of click-views for their website. It wouldn’t matter whether the information they are passing is correct with time, so long it is what people need and want to read something about, they just publish it.
So when you read these write-ups and adverts—especially about admission processing at undergraduate and postgraduate levels on the internet, the first thing you want to know is, who published this information? The list of educational bloggers you can trust for original and prompt admission information is very short. So be careful so you are not misled or caused to panic over what’s not even there.
