How to pass Post UTME 2020 excellently without cheating.

Post UTME as the name implies, is the examination conducted for admission seekers, after writing and passing the main JAMB Examinations.

Unlike the main JAMB UTME, Post UTME is solely conducted by individual tertiary institutions.

Although, each institution sets a cut off mark for aspirants to ascertain if they are eligible to sit for POST UTME.



Out of approximately 2 million candidates who sat (will sit) for JAMB exams this year (2020), don’t be surprised that just thirty percent [30%] of this number will be admitted into various tertiary institutions across the country (excluding private institutions).

This is simply because of the alarming rate of post UTME failures.

Some aspirants score very high in the main UTME, but still get kicked out by the post UTME.

They either get their dream courses changed or never even get admitted. What is the cause?… It is simply because aspirants don’t know how this post UTME works.

Don’t get this wrong, past questions don’t tell you what you’ll see in the examination. Rather, they provide clues on the areas to expect questions from.

Questions are repeated every year, and these questions belong to specific areas of respective subjects.

Some institutions like the University of Ibadan conduct written examinations for aspirants, while others like Olabisi Onabanjo University use the CBT system, which was used in JAMB for the post UTME exams.

If your school uses the CBT system, get yourself acquainted with the basics of the computer system, and practice lots of past questions with CBT.

This is a very big factor affecting the success rates of any exam. It is advisable to get to your examination centre at least one (1) hour before the examination commences. This helps you get familiar with the environment and also relaxes the brain of any fear or tension which may seem to arise at any point in time.


#4. Expand your scope in General Studies

After observing the post UTME questions of several institutions, I’ve come to realise that most of them have something in common — General Studies.

As the name implies, everyone is meant to have an idea about this, irrespective of your department.

Therefore it is of great use to get as much General Studies questions as possible.

This brings us back to the first point –Usage of past questions.

General studies questions are also embedded in the past questions booklet and also guide us on what we need to know.


Getting ready to draw the curtain, you can only qualify for your school’s post UTME, after successfully beating the JAMB cut-off mark, so it is pretty wise to work hard and have a very good JAMB score.

This will help a lot when calculating the aggregate score of candidates.

Thanks for staying till the end. I wish you success in all your examinations.
