The Academic Staff Union of Universities in Nigeria recently called off its industrial strike, which lasted up to 8 months. Most universities have announced resumption dates, and admission processes have begun in earnest. Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) is one of the Nigerian universities currently enrolling students for 2022/2023 admissions. LAUTECH recently announced dates for its post-UTME exercise, debunking rumors that it had scrapped the exercise for UTME entrants.
The University, via its official website, informed the general public that its post-UTME exam will be a Computer Based Test (CBT) for admission through UTME to the University’s various programs.
Furthermore, the entrance examinations will be held on the following dates:
- Monday, December 5, 2022
- Tuesday, December 6, 2022
- Wednesday, December 7, 2022
- Thursday, December 8, 2022
- Saturday, December 11, 2022
