The fate of hundreds of post-UTME candidates who sat for the examination in the University of Benin, UNIBEN, on Tuesday, December 8 is uncertain as it was gathered on Wednesday that the servers of the school collapsed.
A Short Messaging Service, SMS, sent out on Wednesday afternoon directed the affected candidates, who came from all parts of the country to write the examination, to return to the university for another test.
It said “If you know anyone that wrote post UTME exam today 8th December 2020 @ict hall UGBOWO, tell the person to come back from any state or city he or she is. UNIBEN server failed for applicants that wrote 9 am & 10.30 am. Authority has tried their best to call some students but their phone off. Tell ur love ones…”, the message on the university’s SMS platform read.
