How to write a Post Utme Exam successfully - FutaNewsandGist

How To Write a Successful FUTA Post-UTME Examination - by FutaNewsandGist 

1. Arrive early to Exam Hall

  As simple as this might sounds, arriving earlier to the Exam hall in which one of them is making you feel at ease and having enough time to do a quick revision before starting your exam. 

2.  Pray before you start your Exam

   Faith is very important just as hard work is. One cannot afford to pray only without reading nor reading without having Faith. 

3. Do not Let Fear take the better of you

  It is understandable you might want to panic but you do not have to be.

  The Post-UTME Exam is just like any of your other CBT Exam (like Jamb). All you have todo is just to prepare 

4. Don't hesitate to ask any question if you have problem with your computer

 If you have trouble with the computer you're using for your exam, do not be timid to ask questions. 

   Even if it's a simple question as asking for where the calculator is. 

Download : FUTA Post UTME Practice and Past Questions 

5. Do the Subject you love first and followed by others.

  Once you've been presented with the questions, we would recommend you go for your favorite subject and answer that first. 

  Then progress to other subjects. This will save your time and also help you to concentrate more better. 

6. Try not to Submit until you're done

  Even if you do not understand a question, try as much as possible to solve it if you still have time - before hitting the submit button . 

  Do not leave any questions unanswered as that might be your chance to earn an extra points.

How To Prepare and Write a Successful FUTA Post-UTME Examination

For those who have already done their Reprint and are wondering what kind of Documents they should bring along when coming for the FUTA Post UTME Exam, in this article, you'll find a list of those documents we thought you should bring along.

1. Depositor's copy of Bank teller indicating payments as appropriate.

This Bank teller copy will be proof of your payment and only for those that paid to the bank. If you pay in a cybercafe (let's say through remita), you do not need to worry about this.

2. Jamb Utme Registration Slip. 

We understand there are different type of Jamb slip; HOWEVER, the one we are referring to in this case is "the first one" (which shows your biodata) and, the second one (which shows your exams date, time, seat number, and venue where you did your jamb). 

3. Printed copy of completed FUTA Post UTME registration slip and reprint

The FUTA Post UTME Reprint is the slip which will show your exam date, venue and time. If you haven't gotten your POST UTME Re-print yet, you can get it HERE

4. Print out of REMITA payment receipt

If you paid (during your FUTA Post UTME Registration ) in bank, you will automatically get this payment receipt from Bank.
   However, if you paid - let's say in a cybercafe, you will have a paper in which CARD PAYMENT RECEIPT will be written on it.
    That's where your RRR number is and you can always use your RRRR number to print your REMITA payment receipt by going to
