Test For 2017 Admission

Screening Exercise

The Delta State university (DELSU) has disclosed that it will

admission into undergraduate programmes offered in the


This was disclosed by the Registrar of the university, Daniel

Urhibo when contacted by newsmen.

He however stated that the aptitude test the school is going to

conduct is quite different from the one conducted by JAMB

and it will be computer-based. 

When asked to state the difference between the computer

based test the school is going to conduct and the Post-UTME

test that was abolished by JAMB last year, the Registrar told

newsmen that the Federal Government did not scrap post-

UTME test.

He explained: “It is the same agency of the government that

said ‘you can select your students’.

“Twenty-six thousand candidates applied to DELSU; how do

you select, may be 5,000 or 6,000? There must be some kind

of uniform test to assess them.

and discovered that somebody who claimed to have scored

“So, if you use that type, you won’t get the best; that is why

there is some kind of a little aptitude test for them.”

Regarding the N5000 candidates are expected to pay for the

screening as against the 2,500 approved by the federal

Government last year, he said that the N5000 is to cover the

cost of the aptitude test as the schools is not in good financial

position to cover the cost.

He mentioned that the school need money to get materials for

the test, pay those that will administer the aptitude test and

mark it as well as service its computers and develop the

software for the test.
