I have wards who passed through the process, which is significantly different from our time, for example, now many do not invite second choice for their screening and this is at variance with procedure. I am also an insider of sorts in the process, and I’ll use the Uniben scenario to give reasons why is illegal and must be scrapped and defaulting prosecuted.

1. Post UME infringes on the sole power right of /UTME to give admissions

If you go through the act, it states that only the body has the right to conduct exams after charging fees, give undergraduate admissions, carryout placements in Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education. The universities are only supposed to send their requirements and preferences. The only exception is Post graduate admissions. But today Universities charge another amount , sometimes higher than ’s to conduct a parallel exam clearly defying the act, and give admissions using methods known to no one else. Uniben announced admission screening fee of 2000 and optional 1000 for past questions. But the reality is that, processing Uniben / ASE 2016 costs 3550. There is no option there, it just displays this amount and asks for MasterCard/Verve details.
