The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ilorin, Kwara State, Prof. Abdulganiyu Ambali, has said that the institution admitted only 12,225 for the 2015/2106 academic session.
No fewer than 103,000 candidates applied to study in the university in the session, according to Ambali.
Of this number, 73,023 scored the minimum admission requirement of 180 marks and above.
The VC, while giving the break down, noted that 62,224 candidates registered for the post-UTME, with 30,384 candidates scoring 50 per cent and above; and 12,225 candidates representing 11.9 per cent securing admission.
Ambali, however, added that 11,051 candidates, representing 10.7 per cent of the applicants, registered in the university for the session.
He spoke during the institution’s matriculation on Friday.
Noting that the university would continue to offer quality education, the VC urged the fresh students to be of good behaviour and be committed to their studies.
Ambali said, “There are two basic factors for success in life. These are doing what is right and eschewing what is wrong. What is right includes being serious with your studies as well as obeying the rules and regulations.
“What is wrong on the other hand includes violating the extant university rules and engaging in unbecoming conduct.”
