  • brymope: It was stated on the advert though, i think exam date should have also been stated for DE candidates too if there would be any. UTME is for sec school leavers and this is an examination, DE isnt an exam, its just a form sold by jamb, the body in charge of tertiary institution entrance examinations. It shouldnt be called DE anymore if there would be any exam, maybe DEE(Dirent entry examination) I'm starting to think its a mistake just like they stated may 12 for Waec furthermaths which is wrong. I totally hope this isn't correct, what would they be tested on? Departmental courses or same as UTME candidates? Well, i'll advice DE candidates to read the novel and prepare in ccase the info is correct

  • josiah11500: heskia and victormcv please don't mislead people by saying the wrong thing... What was said in the above is just that the registration fee is N5000 plus N500 which is compulsory to be paid for text then if you want to engage yourself in the mock exam which is optional you will indicate when registering for the UTME and pay the sum of N700 only when acknowledged a CBT centre for you.
