The University of Ibadan on Wednesday said it recommended 3,783 candidates to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) for admission for the 2017/2018 academic session.
The Deputy Vice Chancellor (DVC), Academics, Prof. Adeyinka Aderinto, disclosed this at a briefing with newsmen in Ibadan.
Aderinto said the figure was out of the 56,172 applicants who chose the university through the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry.
He said the admission for the 2017/2018 would end this month while the screening of those given admission letters will begin soon.
Aderinto, who noted that 26,769 candidates, who scored 200 and above, sat for its post-UTME, added that of the figure, only 9,268 scored 50 percent and above.
He said the university was committed to upholding its standards in admission.
Aderinto said since the premier institution was committed to meeting the mobilization of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), the institution had begun second-semester examinations.
