Official reports by the University of
Lagos (UNILAG) say a total of 17,935
candidates of the 31,955 passed its 2015
post Unified Tertiary Matriculation
Examination (UTME).
The information is contained in a
statement signed by Olagoke Oke the
institution’s deputy registrar.
It would be recalled that 31,955
candidates partook of the recent
2015 JAMB-organised UTME. Most of
the candidates scored 200 marks
above and chose the university as
their school of first choice.
The statement said that the
screening, which was carried out on
August 12-14, was successful.
“A total of 17,935 candidates
passed the screening test with a
minimum score of 40%.
“To this respect, 309 candidates did
not show up for the test while 118
candidates were disqualified for
failure to follow the instructions
for the Computer Based Test (CBT).
“A total of 393 results were initially
withheld on suspicion of
malpractice but on further
scrutiny, 271 of these results have
been confirmed as cases involving
malpractice.
“We will continue to withhold them
for further investigations, while
the remaining 122 results have
been released.
“The cut-off marks for admissions
into the various programmes
offered by the university have
since been released on the
university website,’’ the statement
said.
All candidates who participated in
the examination were also urged to
visit the university’s website
www.unilag.edu.ng for the cut-off
marks and the individual scores.
The candidates were, however,
warned that the university does not
require any additional payments in
respect of admission.
The communique made it clear that
any request made by an individual
or a group of individuals for
payment in order to assist them to
secure admission was fraudulent.
“For emphasis, candidates are
advised not to make any payment
to anyone for any purpose relating
to admissions.
“Anyone found to be involved in
any form of solicitation, giving or
receiving money or benefit of any
kind with respect to facilitating
admissions into the University of
Lagos will be reported to the
appropriate law enforcement
agents.
“Additionally, candidates found to
have offered or given money or
benefit in kind for admission into
the university will be disqualified
from admission.
“Candidates are hereby advised to
desist from seeking information
and any other form of assistance in
relation to admissions from sites
other than the university’s official
website,’’ the statement warned.
There has been much fuss regarding
the UNILAG post-UTME exercise, a
lot transpired within the course of
carrying out the programme. It is
recalled that there were issues of the
cut-off marks. The future students
and their parents had to protest in
court, regarding the initial
benchmark that was put at 250.
The case of a randy lecturer who
allegedly a student who was
seeking admission to the UNILAG,
also sparked controversy. There
were claims and counter claims as to
the true identity of the lecturer as a
staff of the university. It was
reported that afterwards the 18-year-
old victim was awarded a
scholarship.
JAMB post-UTME exercise continues
this week, with several other tertiary
institutions across the nation looking
to get the programme over with, just
in time to align with the academic
calendar.
