Applications for who chose the  University of Ibadan as their second choice in the last UTME and score above 50 in the Sept. 28th UI Post UTME may have to wait for some time to know whether or not they will be considered for admission into Nigerian Premier University, the University of Ibadan.

Information available to campus times reveals that while staff at the institution’s admission office were already at an advance stage in collating the names of successful First choice candidates in the institution’s Post UTME organised on Sept. 28, no attention is currently being paid to candidates who made the institution their second choice and scored above 50 in the same examination, despite NUC’s end of October deadline for the conclusion of admission process for the 2013/14 academic session.

A staff at the admission office informed our correspondent that “for now, it is not clear if the second choice candidates will be considers as we have not got directive to start processing the second choice applicants for admission.” A source close to Prof. Ajav, the chairman of the committee in charge of the admission process informed campus times that as of Tuesday (22/10/2013) the university had only got the list of first choice candidates from JAMB and had been working based on the list, “if the list of second choice candidates comes in from JAMB before the end of the NUC admission deadline, we shall work on it, as of now, we do not have it” the source said.

The university of Ibadan had on Friday (18/10/2013) released the departmental cut off marks and list of departments available for a change of course for candidates who made the institution their most preferred first institution, without making any official statement as to the fate of candidates who made the institution their second choice though all the applicants wrote the Post UTME on the same day. This has raised concern in different quarters because of the deadline issued by the regulatory agency for the conclusion of the admission process this year.
