The University of Ibadan Director of Public Communication, Mr. Olatunji Oladejo, has revealed that 7,057 candidates seeking admission into UI have been invited to write the 2012/2013 Post UTME scheduled to hold on the 9th of July under the tertiary institution’s strict examination conditions
Mr. Oladejo said the invitation of 7,057 candidates for the Post-UTME, follows the processing of submitted results by candidates who made the university their first choice or second choice. “The shortlisted candidates were requested to present themselves for Post-UTME exercise at the University of Ibadan on Monday, July 9, at the lecture theatre of their prospective faculties for the exercise at 8.30am prompt,” said Mr. Oladejo.
“The candidates are requested to report at the examination venue with the following documents, original and photocopies of JAMB notification of result, original and photocopies of WAEC/NECO/SSCE certificates, original and photocopies of birth certificate/sworn declaration, original and photocopies of the customer copy of the Bank Teller used for payment, two recent passport size photographs showing frontal face view.
“Candidates should note that online statements of results obtained before Nov/Dec 2008 are not acceptable for this exercise. “Names of short listed candidates for the Post-UTME examination will be displayed on the university’s website. Electronic mails (e-mails) and SMS will be sent to all invited candidates.” The institution’s Director of Public Communication said.
The UI spokesman quoted the Chairman of the Undergraduate Admissions Committee, Professor Joseph Anthony Woods as stating that, “it is anticipated that the university will be inviting many candidates using the JAMB criteria of merit, locality and Education Less Developed States (ELDS) to write the examination this year in contrast to last year’s exercise, where approximately, 5,000 candidates wrote the examination.
UI is increasing access to all candidates by this phased increase in the post UTME participation examination. “The candidates will be examined strictly in the subjects they offered at the JAMB examination. The essence here is to be able to test the candidates and be sure that they are the ones who sat for the JAMB they wrote before under strict UI examination conditions,” he explained.
