When will UNN first semester examination start?
From the official UNN school calendar, which I have given above, UNN first semester examination for 2019/2020 academic session will begin on the 20th of March 2020. Note that this may be different for the various faculties and departments in the university. But in all cases, examination for all faculties will start within this time.
When will UNN second semester examination start?
UNN second semester examination for 2019/2020 academic session will apparently begin on 10th of July 2020. Students are advised to start reading and preparing for their second semester examination as soon as possible. Though, faculty heads may decide to make slight changes to this date. It must not be totally far from the stipulated date in the general school calendar.
New students who are sure that they have been admitted into the University of Nigeria, Nsukka are advised to be in the university on or before 3rd of December 2019 to commence their clearance. The procedure for clearance in UNN is usually difficult so I personally advise that you come to school as early as possible.
