About FUTMINNA Pre-Degree Programme
Applying for an admission into the Federal University of Technology, Minna begins with you first applying for the forthcoming University Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), conducted by the Joint Admission and Matriculation board, (JAMB).
Minimum college preparatory academic requirements for JAMB/UTME: (in years of senior secondary school study, high school study, or equivalent).
The UTME Forms may be purchased from the Jamb Office located in your state, or from a designated Bank. Examination application is strictly online. Refer to JAMB official website, for more information.
If you truly desire to study in our university, in preference to the other schools, we strongly advise you to fill it in the UTME Application Form as your school of first choice. This is usually helpful in giving you first priority consideration during admission as opposed to the other candidates who may have our school as their second choice.
However, we do conduct a post-UTME examination, purposeful for verifying your UTME score. It is like saying “If you truly made that high score in JAMB UTME, prove it to us in this aftermath Examination”.
Because we are not in control of the supervision of UTME, our post-UTME examination guides us to selecting and admitting real students.
