The Nature of the School of Nursing LUTH Entrance Examination

The nature of SON LUTH entrance examination

In recent years thousands of candidates apply to be admitted into the School of Nursing (SON), Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) for the basic nursing (general nursing) training programme out of which a final selection of 50 – 70 candidates will be made strictly on merit.

The selection is made using three stages of entrance examinations. A candidate makes it to the next stage by passing the test of the previous stage.

The first stage is an aptitude test that evaluates basic intelligence of applicants. Candidates can prepare for this stage using standard aptitude tests that evaluate quantitative reasoning, verbal aptitude, basic arithmetic and current affairs.

The second stage tests academic proficiency in O-level English Language, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Candidates can prepare using WASSCE and UTME past questions.

The third stage is an oral interview where candidates appear before faculty staff of the SON, LUTH and are evaluated. Candidates are advised to dress appropriately and compose themselves properly for this stage.

The final 50 – 70 candidates that are admitted are those who successfully make it through the three stages of the selection process.

    1. The number of subjects it entails depends on the phase.

      Phase 1 is an aptitude test;
      Phase 2 covers English, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology;
      Phase 3 is physical interview where you will be asked general questions.

        1. You do not write the 3 phases on the same day. In fact, only those who pass the first phase on June 9 will be invited to write the second phase which will hold about four weeks after the first phase.

    1. The current head of School of Nursing, LUTH is ADETUNJI A.J. (Director, Nursing Education/Head of School)

    1. The aptitude test is objective. You should practice the appropriate past questions and use your textbooks when you need to understand the topics that the questions test.

    1. We have past questions of aptitude tests which are similar to what you will write in the first phase of the SON entrance exam coming Saturday on June 9. Call or WhatsApp 08092327228 if you want the past questions.

    1. The results for the first phase examination have been released. I do not know if there will be an updated list.

    1. The second phase exam was written on Saturday, June 23, 2018. Successful candidates in that exercise have been invited to the interview phase on Tuesday, July 3, 2018.

    1. Congratulations Confidence on making it to the interview phase. My advice to you is to dress appropriately for the occasion. Dress formally. The questions you will be asked are simple questions about yourself and why you want to enrol for the nursing programme. Endeavour to be relaxed. Your goal is to convince the interview panel that you will be a good nursing student.

      If you will be asked academic questions it won’t be outside the scope of the tests you wrote. So since you passed the two tests you won’t have problems with any academic questions.

      Good luck!
