  1. pls joseph this is mary from lagos i paid for the e-tranzact i dont know how to go abt it pls help me

    1. Visit the University portal and click on start your UTME admission application. Enter your JAMB Registration number, select new student and click on Access Portal... Use your e-transact pin to login and register

  2. Hi Joseph, does this screening include Direct Entry applicants? If so, when will their screening date be? As this is not stated in the broadcast

    1. Hey Ogbonda,
      How are you doing?
      Kindly note that this UNICAL Admission Screening is for 2016 UTME applicants only... You will be notified when applications for Direct Entry screening will commence officially.

    Congratulations to all of you out there that have met the UTME (JAMB) cut-off mark of year 2016, it has not being so easy. Now a bigger congratulation is just ahead of you, that is, by gaining admission into UNICAL for the 2017/2018 academic session that is just around the corner. I know you have done your part in studying and praying that is why you have come thus far. It is just a last step to securing your admission as you are aware that there is a change in the admission process from the usual Post UTME examination to the just introduced Admission Screening exercise that takes into cognizance many factors like:
    1) How many Senior School Certificate examinations (SSCE) settings you are applying with.
    2) Your Grades in the SSCE result(s) you are applying with
    3) Your UTME (JAMB) Score and so on.
    This implies that admission this time around will be very tough for those without the right connections even when they meet the requirements to get admitted. I work in the admission office of our great school but can't disclose my identity. We have being helping students for upwards of five (5) years now to get admission into UNICAL and this is your opportunity to get admitted and study the course of your choice. Take on this once in a life time opportunity. If you are interested you can call: 08140653493 OR send us a mail via: mostguaranteedadmission@gmail.com
