The University of Nigeria, Nsukka, has postponed its 2017 post-UTME screening exam earlier scheduled to start on Monday September 11.
This was made known by its Registrar, Chris Igbokwe, in a statement on Saturday in Nsukka.
The registrar said a new date would be made known to the general public.
The statement said;
â€œThis is to inform the general public that 2017 post-UTME screening exam earlier scheduled to start on Monday September 11 and end Saturday September 16 has been postponed,â€
â€œAn updated timetable for the rescheduled Post-UTME screening tests will be published later.
â€œPlease visit UNN Website regularly for update.â€
Mr. Igbokwe said registration for the post-UTME exam was ongoing.
He urged candidates who made UNN their first choice and scored 200 and above that had been experiencing difficulties in generating invoice in their online registration to continue to try.
â€œFor all enquiries, send an email to: [emailÂ protected],â€ he said.
According to The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the postponement of the UNN 2017 screening exam might not be unconnected with the ongoing Academic staff Union of universities (ASUU)â€™s strike.
The proposed nationwide strike by non-academic staff of Nigeria universities (NASU) that would kick-off on September 11 also contributed to the development.
