  1. Hi. During registration, I couldn’t upload my passport. Now both my application slip and screening slip is void of my passport. I also heard that no passport means disqualification or forfeiture of admission. Should I still go to the exam or do a change of institution to another school now that I have a chance?? Please help

    • Angel,

      Everything is perfectly alright.

      You are not supposed to upload your passport photograph. It is your JAMB photograph that would be used for your Post UTME.

      I wish you success with your exam.

  2. Hi. I have been unable to apply for Uniben post utme since Monday, says no application record Found. What do I do??. My Jamb Caps is already reflecting Uniben as my first choice, so what’s the problem?? And the deadline is soon

    • Hello Angel,

      It because of the change of course.

      But, do not worry, your details will reflect on the UNIBEN portal before the end of the week.

      • Unfortunately till now, it didn’t reflect. I tried all their help lines, none went. Sent emails more than 5 times, no reply. I saw on their portal that they extended it to Oct 2 but am unsure of that. I don’t know what to do

        • If you are in Benin, you can visit the school ICT.

          But, I am confident you will be able to register before the close of the form.

    • Chiamaka,

      The date for the Post UTME exam is not yet out.

      Your JAMB score is low for Law at UNIBEN.

  3. Do i stand a chance to gain admission to study English and literary studies with a jamb score of 219 in Uniben? Thanks

  4. I got 248 in jamb 2023 applying for Mechanical engineering in Uniben.
    My sis got 229 applying for Nursing in Uniben.
    Any hope of admission for us . thanks ?

    • It depends on whether or not you reach the cut off mark for Accounting.

      But generally, your JAMB score is low for UNIBEN.

    • Hello Precious,

      UNIBEN does not have accommodation for POST UTME students. The accommodation is normally provided by church groups in UNIBEN.
