Candidates awaiting the release of UNILORIN’s Undergraduate Admission List for 2017/2018 academic session has been urged to remain calm as the management is working to released the admission list.
According to him, the delay is due to the issues the university is experiencing uploading the list of admitted candidates on JAMB CAPS for approval.
He then appealed to the candidates, saying, “They will have to be calm. Nobody is trying to jeopardize the process. It is just a small problem and I don’t think that it is insurmountable. We will definitely overcome it. We are just worried about its effects on the academic calendar. So, we are working round the clock to correct this. We are concerned. We are trying our best.
We have not been folding our arms. In fact, we are thinking of moving to another location where the strength of the internet facility would be enhanced.” Expressing the concern of the University management, Prof. Mustapha said, “This is the first time we are using this electronic method. In the past, all you have to do after completing your admission exercise was to go down to Abuja and mark your candidates manually. Now, we went to Abuja and JAMB refused to let us mark manually. They wanted it done electronically. So, we had to come back and that was when we started loading the post-UTME scores and so on.”
The Chairman, who was visibly worried about the low strength of internet facilities in the University caused by external providers, said that the situation is not peculiar to the University of Ilorin alone. He said, “Once we have enhanced internet facilities, and if probably, JAMB can strengthen its own bandwidth, I think the problem will stop.” Prof. Mustapha said that the University of Ilorin has met the requirements set by JAMB, including deadline for submission of admissible students”
