The Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan (UI), Professor Idowu Olayinka has expressed his delight over the hitch-free conduct of a two-day 2017/2018 Post-UTME screening exercise.
The exercise was for UTME candidates who chose the University of Ibadan as their first choice and scored 200 and above in the last Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The VC, in his remarks, expressed his satisfaction at the performance of all stakeholders before and during the exercise.
He particularly commended the peaceful conduct of all candidates and their parents/guardians who were around at the examination centres for their decent conduct.
According to Olayinka, “It was a hitch-free exercise, for there was no report of any examination malpractice or distortion of the examination.”
A high rate of vehicular and human movement were experienced yesterday in the early hours, and indeed today. However the situation was well managed by the University Campus Security Service.
123 Centres used for UI Post-UTME
A total number of 123 centres spread across all Faculties and Centres with appropriate number of candidates assigned to each centre sat for the examination under strict UI examination condition.
