What Is the LAUTECH Post UTME Exam?
The Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Post UTME exam is the screening process conducted by the university to determine which prospective students will be admitted into the institution. As an applicant, going through this process successfully is key to gaining admission into your desired course of study at LAUTECH.
To start, you must first meet the minimum requirements set by the university and obtain a score that is equal to or higher than the cut-off mark in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). Once this is achieved, you can proceed to apply for the LAUTECH Post UTME examination on the school’s website. The application usually opens around June or July, so you must apply as soon as it opens to avoid missing the deadline.
When applying, you will be required to provide personal details like your names, UTME registration number, email address, and phone number. You will also need to choose your course of study and upload certain documents like your O’level result, UTME result slip, and a scanned passport photograph. An application fee is usually required to complete the process, so you must pay into the school’s account and provide evidence of payment along with your application.
If your application is successful, you will receive information on the screening date, time, venue, and other instructions via text message on the phone number you provided. On the screening day, you must arrive at the designated venue early with your documents and screening fee to participate in the Post UTME exam which may hold in either a Computer-Based Test (CBT) or paper and pencil format. Your performance in this exam will determine if you are eligible for admission into LAUTECH.
