EFIWE NEWS: Unibadan Can't Admit More Than 3,500 Students This Year - UI VC, Prof Idowu Olayinka


 TO MAKE STATEMENT
CONCERNING ADMISSION IN
TWO WEEKS TIME – UI VC

ADMIT CONFUSION OVER JAMB POLICY

The Admission policy of the University of Ibadan for the 2016/2017 academic year would be released in the next two weeks according to the Vice Chancellor of the
University, Prof. A. I. Olayinka.

The University head stated this while fielding questions from the correspondents of UCJUI who interviewed him
recently in His Office.

“In the next two weeks maximum. The problem is we don’t want to make a policy and then tomorrow, the government comes up with something else,” Prof.
Olayinka said as He mentioned that the University authorities were monitoring the moves of the new Registrar of Joint Admission and Matriculation Board
(JAMB) whether He would reverse the decision of His predecessor.



The UI VC decried the policy of JAMB which stopped universities from conducting Post – Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (Post UTME) which He said had over the years improved the quality of Students
being admitted into the University.

“May be up to 2003 or 2004, quite a large army of students were being asked to withdraw at the end of (their) first year on account of poor academic performance. We have statistics to back it up and it was a national problem,” Prof. Olayinka said.

But with the conduct of Post UTME, the University had continued to admit the best students Nigerian Secondary schools had got to produce as He said “we
recorded our best (result) last year when 1.9 percent (of matriculants) were asked to withdraw”.

On the next of Students to be admitted, the Vice Chancellor said, “left to me, they should not be more than 3, 500 Students" as He consider primarily hostel accommodation in the University should could not
cater for more than 8, 300 students including Post Graduates and Medical Students at Alexander Brown Hall, UCH.
