2018/2019 POST-UTME RESULTS AND PROCESSING OF ADMISSIONS
You will recall that the Post-UTME Screening for the 2018/2019 Admission Exercise at the University of Ibadan held on Friday 14th September and Saturday 15th September, 2018. The conduct of the screening has been adjudged to be quite outstanding by all the parties concerned including the candidates themselves, their parents and guardians.
A total of 17,956 candidates sat for the screening. Out of these, 11,730 scored 50% and above, this representing 65.3% of the total number of candidates. For the avoidance of doubt, only those candidates who scored 50% and above are eligible for consideration for admission.
The highest score at the Post-UTME screening was by Anyanwu Favour Chinazaekpere who obtained 90%, and is seeking admission into Communication and Language Arts. Other high scorers at the Post UTME include four candidates who scored 89% and five candidates who scored 88%.

The aggregate score for each candidate has since been computed and same communicated to the candidates on their admission portals.
The next stage is for meetings of the Faculty Admissions Committee to be convened to select candidates for admission by setting the cut-off marks from the aggregate scores. The criteria for these include Merit, Catchment and Educationally-Less-Developed States. The meetings will hold from Wednesday, 26th September till Friday, 28th September, 2018. The list of admitted candidates will be published soon after.
While we appreciate the anxiety by the candidates and their parents and guardians, we strongly appeal to all our stakeholders to exercise a little more patience while the decisions of the various Admissions Committees would be communicated as soon as possible.
Thank you and God bless.
