UNILAG shifts 21/22 matriculation date, deploys 500 tablets to library The Informant247

The University of Lagos(UNILAG) Akoka has reacted to the claim that it refused to give admission to a female student who scored 326 out of 400 marks in the last Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) by Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB). 

The management of the university dismissed the claim, saying that the claim of the applicant distributed on social media was not true.

The university blamed the candidate who did not mention her name or reveal her identity on social media, for not uploading her secondary school certificate result on the JAMB CAPS before the given deadline.

The university said it has given its process of admission, guidelines, timeliness, and requirements wide publicity so as to guide every candidate.

The University said: “But the applicant in question even though we got to know her identity through a back-end search of our database as she did not supply her details in her viral message, failed to upload her ‘OL’ result within the stipulated deadline for our 2022 admissions exercise.”

“So, while the University appreciates the plight of the applicant, it is unable to take any further action on this 2022 admission exercise.

“To this end, management wishes to assure candidates and the general public that the University remains committed to its hallmark of the transparent, credible, and open admission process,” the University stressed.
