The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has increased the admission quota of University of Ilorin from 7,800 to 9,000.
This was disclosed by the Vice Chancellor Prof. AbdulGaniyu Ambali during an interactive session with newsmen
According to him, following this development, the institution is currently putting effort towards equipping its laboratories and has also collaborated with investors to build additional 5,000-bed-space hostel in the institution to ensure the institution meets the accommodation demands of its students.
While commenting on the issue of JAMB allowing UTME results to be valid for more than a year, prof Ambali said he is not in support of the idea. According to him, candidates re-writing examinations annually would give them the opportunity to do better than they had done in previous ones.
