The University of Lagos (UNILAG) on Thursday said it had yet to fix a date for its 2016 Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) .
The Deputy Registrar Information, Toyin Adebule, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
He spoke on the heels of mounting pressure from candidates who chose UNILAG as first choice, waiting to sit for the examination.
According to Adebule, the department in-charge of admission will work out all the necessary modalities before announcing the date to all concerned.
NAN reports that some state and federal universities have started announcing dates for post-UTME examination in their respective institutions.
“No date has been fixed for our Post-UTME for now. The official in-charge of admissions is to attend a stakeholders meeting where the national cut off for admission will be decided.
It is only after then that she will come back and sit with the UNILAG admissions committee to deliberate on the outcome of the meeting. After critical deliberations, the committee’s position will be presented to the university authorities for approval.
It is only after all these logistics are put in place that we can decide on an appropriate date for the post-UTME examination,” Adebule said.
He, therefore, urged all qualified candidates who made the institution their first choice during the 2016 Computer Based Test (UTME) to constantly visit the institution’s website for updates.
The Deputy Registrar said whenever the management fixed the date, it would also reach out to the candidates through the media.
