The Covenant University has announced that this year Post-UTME screening exercise will be CBT based and conducted online unlike other years. It is being held visually due to the Covid-19 pandemic in order to observe social distancing. This is the first time the university will be conducting an home based Post-UTME.

Covenant has been able to transmute seamlessly from the usual physical screening to the virtual, courtesy the state-of-the-art Information Communication Technology infrastructure of the University.


According to the Chairman, CUSAS 2020, Professor Kolawole Ajanaku, the screening exercise had been seamless since it started on Wednesday, July 29, 2020. “Screening of candidates has been hitch-free because, at Covenant, we are accustomed to the use of ICT.

Since COVID-19 started, we’ve been on virtual, delivering lectures to our students and having meetings and conferences. So, I believe that’s the way to go,” he stated.

Not less than 3,000 candidates had at the time of filing this report indicated an interest in participating in the 2020 CUSAS.

Professor Ajanaku said that the University sent conditions for successful screening to candidates, and he encouraged parents and guardians to provide the necessary equipment and data for their wards to ensure a smooth exercise.
