Nigeria’s first university, University of Ibadan (UI) has announced her readiness to begin the 2018/19 admission exercise, informing candidates who made the University their institution of first choice and scored 200 and above in the 2018 UTME that the University’s website will be open on Monday, 16 July, 2018 to Friday, 10 August, 2018 for the submission of their bio-data and SSCE/NECO results online through http://www.admissions.ui.edu.ng.
The University Registrar, Mrs. Olubunmi Faluyi who made this disclosure in a notice placed on the University’s website hinted that the deadline for submission of bio-data / O/level results may not be extended, saying “any candidate whose bio-data are not submitted within the stipulated time will not be considered for Post-UTME Screening and for admission”.
According to the Registrar, “candidates are required to log-in to the Admission Portal (http://www.admissions.ui.edu.ng) using their Jamb Registration Number as their user name and their surname as their password”
Mrs. Faluyi stated that a screening fee of N2,000.00 should be paid through the ADMISSION PORTAL in favour of University of Ibadan (Admission Processing Fee Account), with Candidate’s Name, JAMB Registration Number, Telephone Number and E-mail address quoted at the point of payment.
She further said “Candidates are expected to print the payment success receipt which should display full names of the candidate (SURNAME first) as in the UTME result slip preceded by the JAMB Registration number, as the payee and the payment reference number showing the success message”.
On the day and date of the screening, the Registrar hinted “the date for the post UTME will be communicated to candidates through their e’mail addresses and sms, advising candidates to provide valid and active email addresses and phone numbers, because, according to her, “UI will not take responsibility for failure to get information as a result of invalid email addresses and functional phone numbers”
“Misrepresentation/falsification of documents is a serious offence. Candidates are therefore advised to submit genuine documents only. Anyone found guilty of this offence will be disqualified automatically and in appropriate cases, be handed over to the Law Enforcement Agencies”, she added.
