It is public knowledge that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a setback on lots of activities, including delay in the Admission Exercise for the 2020/2021 Academic Session.
Following delays in the administration of the O’Level examinations for the year 2020 occasioned by the pandemic, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) gave a directive that institutions intending to hold Post UTME should hold on until the examinations were concluded.
There is now a second wave of the pandemic. However, the University of Port Harcourt is set to begin the Admission Exercise and needs candidates to note the following:
- Due to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic which poses a challenge to the conduct of a physical Post UTME (screening) exercise, the University has screened its candidates using their O’Level results. This involves grading the candidates’ results.
- Candidates can check their Screening Scores by login into their Post UTME portal.
- Candidates who registered for Post UTME with Awaiting Result should forward Scanned Copies of their O’Level results to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org with their JAMB Registration Numbers as the subject of the Email. Submission ends on Friday, 15th January, 2021.
- Candidates are expected to check the JAMB site and the University website regularly for their admission status and accept their admission on the JAMB site if admitted.
Best wishes and stay safe.
