The screening exercises start on Monday, 26 August 2019. Below is a summary of all you need to know to be successful.
- Make sure you know your exam day and time, including venue
- Reprinting has commenced. If you already know your exam day, time and venue, you don’t need any reprinting. You can also do your reprinting at the exam venue on the day of your exam (in front of Nnamdi Azikiwe Library).
- Reprinting is not compulsory.
- You don’t need a colored print out for the exam.
- For those coming from far places, board a bus to Nsukka. All the buses to Nsukka stop at Ogige market (Ahia Ogige) Nsukka.
- At Ogige market, at the pack where the car will stop finally, look around, you will see buses with green white and green colour. Those are UNN Shuttle Buses.
- Board a shuttle. It will drop you at anywhere within UNN campus. If you don’t really know the venue where you are going, tell the shuttle driver your where you are going to and he will take you there.
- When you get to the park at Ogige market, Nsukka, if you’re confused on how to get UNN shuttles, please, ask only the driver of the car you boarded. Don’t ask the Okada or Keke riders.
- From the pack to anywhere in UNN is #50 only but may increase because of high demand during screening, but it won’t exceed #100. Be guided.
- Don’t take Okada because they won’t bring you beyond the school gate, which is just half the journey. Okada will even charge you up to #200 or more.
- If you intend staying with a friend off campus, tell them to come meet you at Ogige park. Don’t ask an Okada rider to take you to where you don’t know. You may fall into the hands of a wrong person. Nsukka generally (within and outside school) is not safe these days. Don’t fall a victim.
- Book your accommodation space before arriving at the school and begging a ‘student’ to help you. You may also get into the hands of the wrong person. The earlier, the better.
- Make sure you are at your exam venue at least, an hour to your exam. It usually rains throughout the screening exercises. You may be disrupted by the rain, and guess what, the exam continues whether it’s raining or not.
- Don’t bother about what to eat. You can buy whatever you want to eat even in front of the exam venue.
- Inside the exam hall, your computer may be faulty, UNN has enough technicians walking around the hall to assist. If you discover any problem with your system, call on any of them. They are friendly and ready to help you. If you find it difficult to say your problem in English, use Igbo. Virtually all the technicians are Igbos.
- You should feel free to use Igbo to ask anybody any question while in Nsukka. Over 80% of UNN students are Igbos. Speaking Igbo will help you get what you want quickly and easily, especially with the shuttle drivers and traders within the campus.
- Finally, hand your journey and the exam into the hands of God. You Will be happy you did.
Ebuka wishes you all; a safe trip, safe stay in Nsukka, hitch-free exam experience and success in your exams.
Keep Pushing! Keep your hopes high.
Your UNN Dream, Soonest, a Reality.
