This was disclosed to FUOYENews by Director of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) of the university, Mr Adeboyejo Moses Adeyinka in a message on Wednesday January 8, 2020.
Responding to questions from FUOYENews, Mr Adeboyejo said, “Thank you sir….We received 498 applications…”
In his own reaction, the Dean, Faculty of Law, Professor Andrew Adetokunbo Borokini, whose faculty is the beneficiary of the screening, noted that: these 500 students would have been denied admissions but for the doggedness of the management who offered this opportunity.
Prof Borokini, was at the Prometric Centre, the venue for computer based test (CBT) organized for the candidates to supervise proceedings, said about fifty (50) of the candidates will be offered admission.
The Dean further said that only candidates who sat for the last Joint Admission Matriculation Board Examination and scored a minimum of 230 points were eligible to seek for the admission.
On the modalities for selecting the fifty (50) candidates, the Dean assured that merit will strictly be adhered to by the admission committee. He also revealed that candidates’ JAMB’s score, Ordinary level results from West African Examinations Council (WAEC) or National Examinations Council (NECO) and the score of the computer based test will be used to select qualified candidates.
It would be recalled that the National University Commission (NUC) had earlier approved the law programme for the university since last year after a thorough resource verification exercise.
