The management of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife in Osun state, has announced that its online post Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) test would now hold between March 15 to 19.


According to NAN, Olarewaju Abiodun, the varsity’s public relations officer, broke the news in a statement on Tuesday.

Abiodun said that the screening details in respect of guidelines, date and schedule for each candidate would be available on the university admission’s portal from March 9.

He added that registration for the exercise will end on Thursday.


“All candidates that registered for the 2020 OAU Post UTME screening are hereby notified that the exercise will now hold online,” the statement read.
