University of Ilorin, UNILORIN will admit for candidates this academic year if the National Universities Commission (NUC) approves increase in its admission quota. This information was made known by the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. AbdulGaniyu Ambali (OON), last Wednesday (March 30, 2016) while featuring on a Radio Nigeria, Harmony FM, Idofian current affairs programme, “Our Guest”.
The University expressed concerns on the ration of admitted students to the total number of applicants. This has also been a major concern to major stakeholders, including candidates and parents of candidates.
Vice Chancellor Says UNILORIN May Admit More Candidates This Year – 2016/2017
For instance, out of the more than 103, 000 candidates that applied to study in the University of Ilorin in the 2015/2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME), only 11, 057 could be admitted due to the low admission quota granted the most subscribed university by the regulatory bodies.
Professor Ambali noted that the management of the University was seriously worried that most Nigerian youths cannot gain admission into their choice institutions due to the low carrying capacity of Nigerian universities.
As it is now, candidates who have chosen University of Ilorin as a choice could only hope that NUC approves UNILORIN’s request to admit more students. The Vice Chancellor concluded by warning desperate admission seekers to be wary of scammers, as the University of Ilorin’s admission is not for sale.
