UNILAG releases post UTME results

26 August 2015, 12:06

Lagos – The University of Lagos said a total of 17 935 candidates of the 31 955 that sat for its 2015 Post Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) recently, passed the screening exercise.

This is contained in a statement signed by the institution’s Deputy Registrar, Information, Olagoke Oke in Lagos.

It would be recalled that 31,955 candidates who scored 200 marks and chose the university as their school of first choice participated at the recent 2015 JAMB-organised UTME.

The statement explained that 26, 732 of the candidates registered for the post UTME screening for admissions into University of Lagos for the 2015/2016 session.

The statement said that the screening which was carried out from Wednesday, August 12 to Friday, August 14 was successful.

“A total of 17 935 candidates passed the screening test with a minimum score of 40 per cent.

“A total of 393 results were initially withheld on suspicion of malpractice but on further scrutiny, 271 of these results have been confirmed as cases involving malpractice.

“We will continue to withhold them for further investigations, while the remaining 122 results have been released.

“The cut-off marks for admissions into the various programmes offered by the university have since been released on the university website,’’ the statement said.

The statement urged all candidates who participated in the examination to visit the university’s website www.unilag.edu.ng for the cut-off marks and individual scores.

The statement warned that the university does not require any additional payments in respect of admission.

It said that any request made by an individual or group of individuals for payment in order to assist them to secure admission was fraudulent.

“For emphasis, candidates are advised not to make any payment to anyone for any purpose relating to admissions.

“Anyone found to be involved in any form of solicitation, giving or receiving money or benefit of any kind with respect to facilitating admissions into the University of Lagos will be reported to the appropriate law enforcement agents.

“Additionally, candidates found to have offered or given money or benefit in kind for admission into the university will be disqualified from admission.

“Candidates are hereby advised to desist from seeking information and any other form of assistance in relation to admissions from sites other than the university’s official website,’’ the statement warned.
