ABU Zaria Admission Screening – PUTME
The Ahmadu Bello University Zaria holds her admission screening exercises / post utme within a week or a couple of weeks and it usually comes in two phases. Students who applied to study in the school are to proceed for the pre-screening exercise and post UTME exams which is very crucial to the admission process. No matter your UTME Score, if your post UTME has fallen below standards, it is believed that you cheated in the UTME in itself and can not be submitted.
In the other way round, if your UTME scores are not very high and you just barely met the ABU cut off Mark but performs excellently well in the post UTME, you have improved your chances of an ABU Admission and may possibly be considered for admission ahead of those who outscored you in UTME
Documents required for the pre-screening exercise are: SSCE result and JAMB registration print out and writing materials.
The second phase of the screening is after the admission lists might have been released. Candidates who have merited the admission will be invited for another screening exercise before you are issued an admission letter and allowed to proceed with registration. Here all documents such as; Original copies of their educational qualifications (Statements of Results/Certificates). Birth Certification/Age Declaration, Certificate of Local Government of origin; and this notification of admission status slip will be physically checked
