On Monday, September 11, the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) commenced the University Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) screening for 64,000 candidates seeking admissions there for the 2017/2018 academic session.
The deputy director, corporate affairs department of the university, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin that 104,000 candidates applied for the screening.
However, because of the capacity of the institution only 11,000 successful candidates would be admitted into the various programmes.
UNILORIN’s cut-off mark had been pegged at 180 as the minimum and Mr Akogun explained that every department was expected to come up with its own cut-off mark.
He also said that the administration of the Vice-Chancellor designate would continue to uphold the virtues and standards of the university.
University of Ilorin has the highest applications with 104,038 student-applicants.
