UNILORIN conducts post-UTME test for 16, 920 admission seekers 


A total of 16, 920 out of the 18,098 admission seekers that registered for the 2023/2024 Post-UTME test of the University of Ilorin, have sat for the screening exercise held between last Monday (February 19, 2024) and last Friday (February 23, 2024).

The screening exercise, which was entirely computer-based, was held on the University Campus between the hours of 8.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m each day.

Speaking on the exercise, the deputy vice chancellor (Academic), Prof. Abayomi Olubunmi Omotesho, noted that there were no recorded incidents of examination malpractice or impersonation.

The deputy vice chancellor stated that the test was officially completed last Thursday while Friday, February 23, 2024 was for mop-up, to accommodate candidates who were unavoidably unable to sit the test within the previously scheduled dates.

On when candidates could start checking their admission status, Prof. Omotesho assured them that the university would begin posting information on the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) once the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) opens CAPS for the process. 

He emphasised that any admission conducted outside CAPS remains illegal. 

Omotesho warned candidates to beware of scammers and advised them to only use the university’s official platforms for information and communication.
