Unity schools admission list okayed
Federal Government approved yesterday the release of admission list of Federal Unity Colleges (FUCs).
The Minister of State for Education, Mr. Nyesom Wike, who gave the approval in Abuja, directed candidates to check their admission status online through the portal address: www.fmeinterviewtest.com.
Federal Government this year reintroduced aptitude tests for admission into Federal Unity Colleges, which it said was aimed at ensuring that only qualified candidates were admitted into the colleges.
This new directive saw the candidates writing two examinations.
Wike said during the aptitude tests merit would be used in placing pupils in the 104 Federal Unity Colleges.
He said it would be placed above other criteria, such as catchment areas, environmental factors and state quota because of the need to inculcate the right values in future generations.
The minister said the re-introduction of aptitude tests was to ensure that only qualified candidates were admitted into Federal Unity Colleges.
