Admission into dah school is by luck bro
I think it's coz remedial and Jupeb pay so much money money. Oau also admits A LOT of those who do their predegree and Jupeb at the expense of normal Utme students.
UI has no remedial, Jupeb or predegree program. Admission is strictly through putme, A level and direct entry ( Bsc or Hnd certificate).

1) Unilorin religious and indigene bias
2) Northern universities both fed and state are biased against Christian students
3) UNN tribe bias
4) Uniben

Sometimes, we shouldn't write what we think but what we know.

I graduated from UNN and I can tell you UNN is one of the universities in Nigeria that pay attention to federal character principles. In UNN, indegines with 280 score might be denied admission to study medicine whereas people from places like North will be admitted with 230 and this is how it's replicated in all the departments.

I remember, some of my friends had to change their state of origin to North while filling their Jamb form so they can be admitted into medicine.

Y can't they be like UI? Ui is the best uni in Nigeria and has no catchment area. Ui admits strictly on merit. The catchment area stuff is nonsense. What unis should be bothered about is the quality of students not their origin, name or religious affiliation

Well,naso we see am o ma guy

Although it would be great if all schools were like UI

How many Northerners are studying in southern universities like Unilag, UNN, OAU, UNIZIK etc? I bet none. But come to Northern universities like BUK, ABU, ATBU, KASU, UNIMAID and see how your people are getting admissions.
Because una no dey gree go school. Boko Haramism and Fulani Herdsmenology seem to be more lucrative career paths for you. No be my fault.

Ayomideen:


Lol,well I agree with u to an extent cos I'm also of the opinion dah all Nigerian schools are biased

Buh on your context of ethnicity and Religion, nah!

There's a high chance of more Muslim students in the school due to its geographical location (North Central) and you know these federal universities use catchment area as a criterion for admission and that area is dominated by Muslims
Probably why you think they only favorMuslim students
I know a lot of people of other religious beliefs and ethnicities in the school so it totally isn't about that


Moreover one thing I dislike about the school in terms of admissions is their favoritism of Remedial,JUPEB,etc candidates over UTME


Buh look at it in another light,this past year's admission as a case study,they had over a hundred thousand applicants and could only admit ten thousand,don't forget the favoritism whatever oo

Admission into dah school is by luck bro
Mehn, i really tire for people, please anyone can come and make research about religion and admission in ABU, infact no church in zaria as whole can be compared with any of the two churches in ABU samaru, and likewise in kongo campus.

Its irritates when people just come online to type rubbish hiding behind keyboard.

We have igbos and alot of yoruba in my level and department in abu, and lest i am from kwara state ( north) 5 of us was admitted for bsc international studies, 3 Muslims and 2 Christians from. Omu aran and offa respectively.

Bro azzin ehn me sef tire

Igbos and people of other ethnic groups plenty here for Unilorin sef
And although I'm from kwara,Ajase-Ipo to be precise,It was clearly stated on my portal dah I was admitted on merit, so it really isn't about being an indigene or catchment ish or ethnicity n religious beliefs like people make it seem
This my school is a really misunderstood one
Buh one thing I noticed is once one is denied admission by a school,in most cases,the person just has this negative perception of the school and is quick to talk bad about it


Buh well,everyone is entitled to their opinions

Exactly bro, of the 5 people from kwara, 2 are first class students now in final year.
All of us were admitted via jamb, before abu list even came out, i was surprised when i learnt I was the third with 244, and the first two were 280 and 277.

ABU has really suffered from online trolls

I disagree with your no 3. UNN doesn’t discriminate against ethnicity or state of origin. The reverse is the case. Most times, some states and educationally less developed areas do not fill their allocated spaces because they either scored very poorly or didn’t apply at all. Cut off point for indegenes for medicine could be 300 but that for ‘educationally disadvantaged areas’ could be 260 but you wouldn’t see anyone within that range while there would be lots of people from the south east not getting admitted because they scored around 295.

UNN does, the cutoff for Enugu and other SE states's indigenes are most times lower than the merit cutoff.

That is not true. There are cut off for catchment area, educationally disadvantaged areas and merit.

Certain percentage is allocated for catchment area of which Enugu state indegenes are privileged just like other places but the number is low and highly competitive.

That doesn’t affect the places allocated for educationally less developed states.

I understand students from ELDSs have lower cutoff marks- though I think that should be stopped-.

But UNN also reduces cutoff for catchment areas, I believe that is bias, OAU, Unilag and majority of Nigerian Universities do the same, but I think UI and a few others do not.

Cut off marks of Enugu, Anambra and Imo indigenes are among the Highest! In that order. Ebonyi and all Northern states are regarded as ELD areas. Although, like every public unis, there are staff quotas.

You and those "liking and sharing" your post are living in self denial. The first rule to emancipation, is self emancipation. Did you pass and UNIBEN didn't admit you? Instead of you to be challenged 'cause you weren't admitted which was due to your inability to pass well, you're busy saying the school is bias.
