The Delta State university (DELSU) has disclosed that it will conduct an aptitude test for candidates applying for the 2017 admission into undergraduate programmes offered in the university.

This was disclosed by the Registrar of the university, Daniel Urhibo when contacted by newsmen.

He however stated that the aptitude test the school is going to conduct is quite different from the one conducted by JAMB and it will be computer-based.

When asked to state the difference between the computer based test the school is going to conduct and the Post-UTME test that was abolished by JAMB last year, the Registrar told newsmen that the Federal Government did not scrap post-UTME test.

He explained: “It is the same agency of the government that said ‘you can select your students’.

“Twenty-six thousand candidates applied to DELSU; how do you select, may be 5,000 or 6,000? There must be some kind of uniform test to assess them.

“Last year, we asked them to submit their secondary school results and we graded them. Do you know that people claiming to have ‘A’s in their results could not write their names?

“Some of them had forged results. We went to the internet and discovered that somebody who claimed to have scored 300 in UTME had just 120.

“So, if you use that type, you won’t get the best; that is why there is some kind of a little aptitude test for them.”

Regarding the N5000 candidates are expected to pay for the screening as against the 2,500 approved by the federal Government last year, he said that the N5000 is to cover the cost of the aptitude test as the schools is not in good financial position to cover the cost.

He mentioned that the school need money to get materials for the test, pay those that will administer the aptitude test and mark it as well as service its computers and develop the software for the test.

pete566rer; post utme is da best.... Imagine someone that got 5A's in ward and got 299 in jamb last year got a g.p of 1.56gp....i laugh

Ugwu-Victor; Exactly.You can't get the best of candidates with the system being used for admission now.
Imagine a scenario where a student has 6 A's in Waec ,158 in jamb and can't construct simple English.Doesn't it begs for many questions than answers ??
These system of waec result + jamb score is not working & will not work !.
The earlier the FG realises it, the better for our education sector.#Bringback postutme.

Tontobom; Nobody is saying putme isn't a bit porous but we all know that the degree of the porosity of O'level exams is alarming. So,why would our leaders even think of merging o'level with jamb in giving admission? They did that for their own selfish interest knowing that their children attend schools that would always make their students have almost all A's in their o'level results,since they can hardly compete with their not so rich ones in the putme.

Ugwu-Victor; U de mind them.
I just pray they look into these admission system recently in use bcos alot of persons had castigated it and will continue until something substantial is done about it.

Tontobom; @ impetus,the way one react to issues goes a long way to show who one really is and also how shallow minded/thoughtful one is. There was no need insulting me. You could do well by convincing this noble and humble house of intellectuals that your own stand is better. That was a cheap mentality you portrayed. I hope you learn how to handle and tackle issues rationally and fast. Receive sense.

AAU should also conduct aptitude test,I think is the best way to get the best students and not the so call o.level screening.anyone can get A or B's in the o.level and that can never be a true test of any students ability.we are in Nigeria where the best are been sideline and the sharp one who pay for exam runs and get the best of results are been considered for admission.
