University of Lagos Vice-Chancellor Oluvatoin Ogundipe announced that in light of the rise of COVID-19, all academic activities of the institution, including post-UTME screening and other examinations, will be online. Prof. Ogundipe revealed this during an interview with reporters in Lagos on Sunday.
“This is our first time taking this type of exam and each candidate must have a laptop with his own camera.” If they don’t have a camera on their laptop, they are not allowed to participate.
He mentioned that the university had started talking with some friends and university alumni to see how the university could get tablets for underprivileged candidates. He urged Nigerians to help poor candidates get pills as universities adjust to non-physical tests after UTME.
Mr Ogundipe said that applicants will need the tablets not only for UTME testing purposes, but also to simplify other e-learning processes. Mr .Ogundipe also announced that the university has closed the 2020/2021 academic session with the 2021/2022 academic session. This affects our license number as we have to accept two streams unless JAMB does the examination.
He said the university had started discussions with several university friends and alumni to find out how universities could get tablets for underprivileged candidates. He urged Nigerians to help poor candidates get pills as universities adjust to non-physical tests after UTME.
He announced that more than 50,000 candidates are applying for entry in the 2020/2021 academic session, of which around 22,000 have scored 200 points or more.
According to him, so far 21,955 candidates have paid for the written test according to the UTME. Ogundipe added, “We considered the problem of the poor candidate. Then we decided to see how we could take them away. ” Currently we started talking with some friends from university and alumni to see how we can get the tablets we can give them.
Mr. Ogundipe said candidates would need the tablets not only for post-UTME testing purposes but also to facilitate other e-learning processes.
In addition, he announced that the university failed the 2020/2021 academic session with the 2021/2022 academic session. “This affects our license numbers because we have to accept two streams unless JAMB doesn’t do an inspection this year.
