The Federal Government has lifted the ban on the conduct of Post-UTME aptitude test/examinations usually conducted by schools for candidates seeking admission.
This was made known by the Minister of Education Adamu Adamu in Abuja.
According to him, universities, polytechnics and other institutions are free to organise post-UTME screening as a pre-condition to gaining admission into public institutions.
He explained that the Federal Government scrapped the controversial examination in order to fully understand what was going on in the institutions.
The minister added that the government was now wiser regarding the conduct of the examination.
Adamu, in June last year at a combined policy meeting on admissions to Universities, Polytechnics and other higher institutions in Nigeria, in Abuja banned the examination.
He however urged institutions and its authorities to make the fees for the post-UTME screening affordable in order not to impose huge financial burdens on parents.
