      Your grade disqualifies you. But don’t lose hope. Wait till they start contacting people for verification.

    • Hello Sonic,

      There is no cut-off mark. The results will not be released. So one cannot tell if undergraduates and Postgraduates have the same cut-off mark.

    • Hello Favour,

      The website is down at the moment. Just keep trying. Hopefully, they’ll resolve it before the 15th.

      It’s not the application printout. The slip should show the venue, date and time of the exam.

    Is it possible for them to have locked up the portal?

      • Hello Jessy,

        The first batch of the POST UTME is generally for Undergraduates and Post Graduates but the ongoing application is only for students in Education.

    • Hello Joseph,

      Getting shortlisted is just one step in the scholarship process. You also have to pass the exam to be awarded the scholarship.

    • Hello Anita,

      Many people apply for the exam in a year. There are not enough materials for all of them. So the federal government chooses to cut that number according to its requirements.

      You might not have completely met the requirements or you might have been cut off for reasons best known to the board.

  54. Hello good, I am Abba Shada I applied for scholarship and I have been shortlisted for the test, I’m living in Maiduguri, Borno State and my examination center is in Yola, Adamawa State as contained in my slip.
