Ekiti State University is basking in the euphoria of the conduct of flawless electronically conducted Post UTME Screening for candidates seeking admission into the University from the 2014/2015 academic session. The screening Exercise was conducted for the first time, by the staff of the University instead of the hitherto practice of hiring vendors from outside the institution.

The Computer based screening was handled at the electronic Testing Centre in the Directorate of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) of the University.

The one week exercise where thousands of candidates participated, has been described as best in the annals of such exercise in the University as adequate security and conducive environment were provided.

Commenting, the Vice-Chancellor of EKSU, Prof. Patrick Oladipo Aina remarked that this year’s screening by the staff of the University unlike past year’s exercise was unique in the sense that it was handled by staff of the University.

He expressed delight that he was the first Vice-Chancellor to achieve the feat in the history of the University. According to him, some older and first generation universities still hire vendors adding that the innovation would save costs for the University.

Candidates and parents alike commended the University for providing adequate security and conducive environment for the exercise.
