JAMB Begins 2018 UTME Registration In 700 Centre’s
Ever since POST UME has been scraped, screening has been introduced. Most schools conduct their screening based on point system (analysing and grading of o’level and JAMB result) while some school conduct physical interview.

There are questions that will be asked for the candidates to answer. Based on their response to the questions asked and their o’level and JAMB result, they will be
admitted. So it is better you take it serious if you are serious about this year’s admission.


1. What is your name?

2. Why did you choose this school?

3. Why do you think we should admit you?

4. What is your best subject?

The questions i will be posting here is based on the questions asked during FUNAAB and UNIOSUN screening last year.
Now let’s go straight to the questions and how to answer them:


This question may sound so simple but most students usually make mistake answering this question. The interviewer already know your name based on the screening form you submitted to him, so if you want to answer this question, make sure you say the exact name as in your screening form. Don’t start mentioning names that are not in the screening form. Take note.


This question is asked to know if you really know about the school. There are lot of people who don’t know a bit about the university they applied for. For you to answer this question, you should made some little research about the school, that why Google is your close friend. For example, you can answer the question like this, “based on my research, i discovered that this school has experience lecturer and good equipments which will aid your education”, as simple as that. So just be creative.


The aim of this question is to know what will be your impact to the school if eventually admitted. Think of what you will say to convince the interviewer and remember to be creative. For example, you can answer the question like this, ” i think you should admit me because due to my secondary school records, I’ve always engage in school clubs, so i will make impact to the school by engaging in relevant club and obey rules and regulations of this university”. It is not compulsory to say the truth, just be creative and you will be good to go.


This question is asked just to test your level of intelligence.Make sure you tell them the subject you are very good at, because you will definitely be asked a question from it. Also make sure the subject you pick is related to your course or else they will consider you as someone who is not serious. For example, you want to study physics and you picked economics as your best subject. I hope you understand what i am passing across.


They usually ask this question just to know what motivated you to choose that course. Most student will surely that it is because they have passion for the course, some will even go as far as saying that i have always wanted to be a doctor since when i was a kid. All this are popular cliche, try to be creative and say something different. You can impress the interviewer by saying what your is all about, the interviewer will take you as a serious student and give you the admission you want.
