The University of Ibadan (UI) has released an important information concerning the 2017 admission exercise.
This is to inform prospective candidates who made University of Ibadan their first choice, parents and other stakeholders that following the Policy meeting chaired by the Honourable Minister of Education in Abuja on Tuesday, 22 August, 2017, the 2017/18 admission exercise in the University will commence very soon. Candidates are therefore requested to note the criteria for the admission exercise as listed below:
UTME CUT-OFF POINT FOR THE UNIVERSITY
The Institutional UTME cut-off point for the University is still 200 marks. Therefore, only candidates who scored 200 and above are eligible to participate in the screening exercise that will take place at a time to be announced later. For the avoidance of doubt, any candidate with a score below 200 will not be considered for the screening.
POST UTME SCREENING
Candidates are requested to note that a written post UTME screening exercise will be held at a date to be communicated very soon. To this effect, candidates are advised to be on the lookout for the date and other modalities for the written test.
The authentic website from which all details about the post UTME exercise can be obtained is http://www.edu.ui.ng. The University will not take any responsibility for any misleading and fraudulent information that may be obtained from any other website apart from the official University website.
CENTRAL ADMISSION PROCESSING SYSTEM (CAPS).
The 2017/18 admission exercise will be based on the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS), a system designed by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to automate the admissions process to tertiary institutions. The system introduces a number of innovations into the admission process.
These include opportunities for candidates to confirm provisional admissions thus eliminating cases of multiple admission or ignorance about admission status. Candidates are therefore advised to familiarize themselves with the process to enable them check and track their admission status at any point in time on the JAMB portal.
LOGIN IN OF BIODATA
Candidates will be able to login their biodata, prelude the post UTME screening with effect from the last week in August, 2017. Candidates should therefore be on the lookout for the opening of the portal. Please note that there will not be any extension to the closing date of the portal as the University is running behind schedule.
