The management of the University of Ibadan has announced that the institution will conduct its post UTME screening on September 14 and 15, 2018.
The Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof Idowu Olayinka made the announcement on Wednesday, August 29, 2018, via a statement made available to newsmen in Ibadan.
Contrary to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board’s approved cut off mark, which is 180 for universities, the VC says the only candidates who scored 200 and above in their Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination are eligible for the post UTME exercise.
The statement reads:
“This is to inform all prospective candidates for the 2018/19 admission exercise who have successfully uploaded their biodata/credentials that the post UTME screening will come up on Friday, 14 and Saturday, 15 September 2018. Please note that only candidates who scored 200 and above are eligible for the exercise.
“Furthermore, with effect from 2017/18 session, the institutional cut off mark of 200 is applicable to all the institutions affiliated to the University of Ibadan.
“Contrary to insinuations in some quarters that the cut-off mark for our affiliated institutions is 180, the University wishes to reiterate that, as approved by the Senate of the University of Ibadan, 200 is the cut-off mark for both the main campus and the affiliated institutions.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the newly introduced Central Admission Processing System CAPS) by JAMB makes it practically impossible for candidates below the institutional cut- off mark to be offered admission.
“Candidates who scored 200 and above at the UTME and who wish to change to any of our affiliated institutions are welcome to do so. A list of these institutions is available on our website (ui.edu.ng)”.
