UI Admits 3,783 Out Of 56,172 Applicants For 2017/2018 by Nltaliban(m): 10:45pm On Jan 10
10 JAN 2018

The University of Ibadan on Wednesday said it recommended 3, 783 candidates to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) for admission for the 2017/2018 academic session.

The Deputy Vice Chancellor (DVC), Academics, Prof. Adeyinka Aderinto, disclosed this at a briefing with newsmen on Wednesday in Ibadan.

He said the figure was out of the 56,172 applicants who chose the university through the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry.



According to Aderinto, the admission for 2017/2018 will end in January 2018, while screening of those already issued admission letters will soon commence.

The DVC, who noted that a total of 26, 769 candidates who scored 200 and above sat for the Post-UTME of the university, added that out of the number, only 9,268 scored 50 per cent and above.

Aderinto said 3,783, who were finally recommended to JAMB for admission met the approved admission criteria.

He said the university was committed to upholding its standards in admission.

“This is what makes us who we are in offering qualitative education to our students to be the best in Nigeria and have the capacity to compete globally.

“We are committed to meeting NYSC mobilisation for the 2017/2018 National Youth Service hence the second semester examinations in the university have begun. The examination will end the 2016/2017 session.

“We have commenced the examinations. We have also recommended about 3,783 candidates to JAMB for admission and we are concluding the admission process by January ending,” he said.

UI is deliberately taking less students to improve its Times Higher Ranking. A large undergraduate body does a university little good. By taking very small amount of UG they would have reduced the student - lecturer ratio and would give them the opportunity to retain PG-which is a Gold mine for rankings. UNN has been unsuccessfully trying to break into Times for years now. They might need to tow the path of UI to make their top 1000 ranking come through.

Focus on trades, they end up producing white collar graduates lacking skills.The reverse is the case when you look at advance countries and Nigeria when it comes to employability.Wished I learnt mechanic back home instead of wasting precious 5 years at the university. Thanking God though.

Wow... That 3,783 students admitted in UI represents just about 6.7% of the total students that choose UI...

This is indeed very pathetic, saddening and yet another strong proof that there is need for reform and restructing not just in our economy, "but also in the education sector."

Makes no sense . The education sector in Nigeria is very poor. 6.73% of applicants only accepted. The fact is these universities do not have the infrastructure and capabilities to handle a handful amount of student. Imagine UI competing with universites like Harvard on acceptance percentage whilst forgetting the fact in the United States, there are over 2000 universities with better educational ranking than in Nigeria therefore leaving students with various choices. In Nigeria, we have got very few reputable government universities and still we admit students
low acceptance percentage.

Lalasticlala

The number of UG intakes has increased significantly over the years. When I gained admission in 2011, it was far less than the number OP posted (the value was somewhere between 2,000 to 2,500). Though you are correct that UI favours the PG studies more.
