Abstract

This study investigated the impact of JAMB automated test and Post-UME performance on the academic achievement of fresh students in Alvan Ikoku College of Education Owerri Imo State Nigeria. Using correlation research design, one research question was answered and two hypotheses were tested and data collected from one thousand five hundred randomly selected fresh undergraduate. Data were analysed using Multiple Regression and Pearson Product Moment Correlation (PPMC) at 0.05 level of significance. The study revealed that the high achievement scores in JAMB and Post-UME examinations have negative relationship with the academic achievement of fresh students. The findings suggest that tertiary institutions should make sure they conduct both written Post-UME examination and equally make use of oral interview as it would give school authorities the opportunity to project into candidate's academic character. Also, parents should encourage their children to study hard and avoid any form of examination misconduct.
