The Vice Chancelor Of University Of Ibadan explains why only 3500 will get admission out of 20,949


The VC said UI has the capacity to admit 7000 but will only consider 3500 in order to expand admission spaces for postgraduate students.

The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, Prof Professor Abel Idowu Olayinka has said only 3500 out of 20,949 Post-UTME candidates will be admitted.



Olayinka who made the announcement on the University community radio Diamond FM, Ibadan on Monday, October 30, said 9,266 applicants out of the 20,949 candidates scored 50 and above in their Post UTME.
The Vice-Chancellor further explained that the institution was given the opportunity to admit 7,000 candidates but because of its resolve to expand admission spaces for postgraduate students, it will only consider a few undergraduates.
UI is the most competitive, we can only admit at most 3,500. I must also say that we are allowed to admit about 7,000. We have about 7,300 bed spaces. Another reason why we are admitting fewer undergraduates is because we want to expand post-graduates",  he said.
