Please “Shine Your Eyes Well” and confirm that the appropriate form name POST-UTME SCREENING FORM 2016/2017 SESSION is what you are paying for and that the form fee is 2,000 Naira. If it is, then get your ATM card ready and click Proceed To Pay Online.


In the next stage, the Payment Information will be shown to you again, but this time, it will be with your name, and the payment type REMITA is selected by default. Again confirm that the correct form is what they say you are paying for. If it is, click Proceed.
