Ilorin - The University of Ilorin says 65 000 candidates seeking admission into it for the 2015/2016 academic session have been cleared to appear for the post UTME screening which begins on Monday, August 17.

The Deputy Director, Corporate Affairs of the institution, Kunle Akogun, who made this known in a statement in Ilorin on Sunday said the weeklong exercise would hold simultaneously in Ilorin and Lagos.

Akogun said only candidates who scored a minimum of 180 marks in the 2015 UTME and made the University their first choice would take part in the computer-based test (CBT).

He advised candidates to bring along to their respective centres printed copies of their examination schedules indicating that they were slated to write the examination at a particular date and time.

Akogun said this became necessary as there were many batches for the examination daily.

He also advised prospective candidates to bring along with them payment receipts generated from the students’ portal of the University’s website.
