Minister of Education, Mamman Determines to Establish 18 Years as Minimum Wage for University Entry

The Minister of Education, Prof. Tahir Mamman, stated today in Abuja while overseeing the UTME examination that he intends to ensure the establishment of 18 years as the minimum age requirement for university entry.

The minister highlighted that the 18-year benchmark aligns with the structure of the 6-3-3-4 education system.

“The minimum age of entry into the university is 18, but we have seen students who are 15 or 16 years old going in for the entrance examination.

“Parents should be encouraged not to push their wards too much. Mostly, it is the pressure of parents that is causing this.

“We are going to look at this development because the candidates are too young to understand what the whole university education is all about,”
