The Yaba College of Technology (Yaba Tech) says arrangements have been concluded for the conduct of its Post Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
It said the examination would now hold virtually from March 16 to 22.
The Deputy Registrar and Head of Corporate Affairs of the institution, Joe Ejiofor, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Lagos.
He noted that the decision was reached after a meeting of the institution’s admission committee.
According to him, the measure has become necessary in a bid to observe the Coronavirus (COVID-19) safety protocol as spelt out by the federal government.
He stated that the institution, however, remained shut, following a COVID-19 scare, while online lectures for its undergraduates were ongoing.
“The admission committee have just met and the outcome is that the post UTME for candidates seeking admission have been fixed for next month, but will be held online.
“As we all know the COVID-19 protocol is still very much obtainable and observed, hence the decision for the examination to be written and monitored online for 2020/2021 academic session.
“We expect the concerned candidates to make the best use of this development and the time in between, to do the needful and get themselves ready for the Post UTME,” he stated.
He disclosed that only those who performed credibly in the examination would be considered for placement in the college for the 2020/2021 academic session.
According to him, the institution will make use of candidates’ data made available during the UTME, to get necessary information across to enable them to hook up on the portal for the test.
