How to Pass RSU Post UTME Exam and Gain Admission to RSUST 2022

Passing the Rivers State University (RSU) Post UTME exams with a high score is the way to get admission into the school.

Many years ago, I sat for the RSU Post UTME exams at the ICT centre. The exams were a little bit different from what I expected.

Sadly, I did not get admission for the course I wanted to study but for a different one because I did not reach the cut-off mark.

Every year, thousands of students apply to study at Rivers State University because of the school education standard and uninterrupted academic calendar.

RSU is one of the top state universities in Nigeria. It is a good choice for students who want to finish their academic program in record time.

But with these advantages of the RSU, getting admission may be difficult for many students.

This post will give you the essential tips for passing the RSU Post UTME exams and gaining admission to Rivers State University.

Let me know if you have any questions or need further clarifications.

I would love to hear from you in the comment box at the end of this post.

How to Calculate RSU Aggregate Score

Here is the step to calculate your RSU aggregate score;

  • Divide your JAMB score by 8
  • Know your RSU Post UTME score
  • Add your JAMB score divided by 8 to your Post UTME score.

For example, you have a JAMB score of 220 and a Post UTME score of 41.

The calculation for your aggregate score is;

  • JAMB Score: 220/8 = 27.5
  • RSU Post UTME Score = 41
  • RSU Aggregate Score: 27.5 + 41 = 68.5

Your aggregate score will determine if you will get the course you have applied to study at Rivers State University.

Knowing the Rivers State University (RSU) Post UTME format is the first step to passing the examination.

Many years ago, I made the mistake of sitting for the exam without knowing the RSU Post UTME examination format.

Inside the exam hall, I saw mathematics questions that did not prepare for before the exam.

The Rivers State University (RSU) Post UTME is fifty (50) questions on four (4) subjects (three core subjects and one general subject, which include current affairs, questions about the University, etc.) for thirty (30) minutes.

The RSU Post UTME is over fifty (50), which makes up 50% of your aggregate score for admission.

Start Preparing for the Exam Now

The mistake many students applying to study at Rivers State University make is waiting till a few days before the Post UTME exam before they start their preparations.

Early preparations are the secret to passing and scoring high in the RSU Post UTME examination.

As a Post UTME applicant, you must begin preparing for your exams now.

Do not wait until a few weeks or days before your Post UTME exams.

You may feel less motivated to study after your JAMB examination and after seeing your result.

But if there is one thing I wish I could have done when I wrote the RSU Post UTME exams is prepare for the exam early.

Study the RSU Post UTME Syllabus

Studying with the RSU Post UTME syllabus is necessary to pass and get a high score in your screening examination.

The RSU Post UTME subject combination is the same as your JAMB subject combination.

For example, a student applying to study Medical Laboratory Science at the Rivers State University will write Physics, Chemistry and Biology in the Post UTME exam.

Questions from the last subject of the three (3) will be from Use of English, Current Affairs and History of the University.

As a student taking the RSU Post UTME exam, you must study using your JAMB syllabus for the required subjects.

Ensure you read the topics in the JAMB syllabus. This approach will help you to score high in your Post UTME exams.

Let me know in the comment if you are unsure of the subjects you will take in your Post UTME exam.

Practice RSU Post UTME Past Questions

Practising the Rivers State University Post UTME past questions is necessary to get a high score in your examination.

Past questions serve as a guide to prepare you for the likely questions you will see in your exam.

During your practice, you would see the question format for the exam.

Practising Post UTME questions will help you determine your preparation level for the exam.

As a student, you may feel prepared for your Post UTME examination.

But studying past questions will reveal your weak points and topic you need to revisit to score high in your exam.

You can get the RSU Post UTME past questions at the school shopping complex.

But if you do not live in Port Harcourt or have a relative who can help you get the past question, you will have to place an order online.

Let me know in the comment if you need assistance getting the RSU Post UTME past questions.

Register for the RSU Post UTME

online registration

Registering for the RSU Post UTME exams is the first step to gaining admission to the University.

Ensure you register for the Post UTME exam before the expiration of the form.

RSU Post UTME exam is according to the date of registration. You will see your Post UTME exam date immediately after you complete your registration.

Students who registered early would be the first batch to write the exam.

At the same time, applicants who registered late would be among the last batch for the exam.

I always advise students not to be in a rush to register for the RSU Post UTME examination.

The reason is that you will not be in the first batch to write the Post UTME exam.

It is better to register for the exam a week after the start of the RSU screening examination.

Let me know if you need further clarifications.

Overcome the Fear of Failure

Overcoming the fear of failure is necessary to pass your Post UTME exam and gain admission to Rivers State University (RSU).

Many applicants sit for the screening exam, fearing failing it.

I understand that you may be overwhelmed with gaining admission to study your desired course.

Your JAMB score may be low for admission, and you think there is no hope for you.

I want to assure you that there is hope for you to gain admission to RSU.

Tell me your JAMB score and the course you are applying to study at RSU.

I will tell you your chances of admission.

Also, if you have any questions about the RSU Post UTME, cut-off mark or admission processes, let me know in the comment box below.

I will answer your questions.

I wish you success in your Post UTME examinations. You will get admission this year.

    • Hello Obomate,

      From my research, History and International relations is not a department at RSU.

      The department is History and International diplomacy and it is yet to be properly established.
