Press Release

16, 920 applicants jostle for UNILORIN’s admission



No fewer than 16, 920 applicants have participated in this year’s Post-UTME test of the University of Ilorin.

ROYAL NEWS gathered that the participants were among the 18,098 admission seekers that registered for the 2023/2024 Post-UTME test of the University.

The screening exercise, which was entirely computer-based, was held on the University Campus between the hours of 8.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m each day.

Speaking on the exercise, the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic), Prof. Abayomi Olubunmi Omotesho, commended all the candidates for abiding by the examination rules throughout the exercise.

Prof. Omotesho noted that there were no recorded incidents of examination malpractice or impersonation.

The Deputy Vice Chancellor explained that the test was officially completed last Thursday (February 22, 2024) while Friday, February 23, 2024 was for mop-up, to accommodate candidates who were unavoidably unable to sit the test within the previously scheduled dates.

When asked about the prompt daily release of results to candidates, Prof. Omotesho attributed it to the vision of the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Wahab Olasupo Egbewole, SAN, to ensure that the University continues to conform with global best practices.

On when candidates could start checking their admission status, Prof. Omotesho assured them that the University would begin posting information on the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) once the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) opens CAPS for the process.

He emphasised that any admission conducted outside CAPS remains illegal.

Prof. Omotesho warned candidates to beware of scammers and advised them to only use the University’s official platforms for information and communication.
