THE Vice-Chancellor of University of Ibadan (UI), Prof Isaac Adewole, yesterday said the institution would admit 3,700 of the 8,992 candidates who wrote the post-University Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) last weekend.

The five best candidates will be given scholarships.

Adewole, who was represented by the Deputy-Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Emilolorun Ayelari, said the result is now available on the institution’s website.

The candidates are: Adetunji AbdulRaham (55328333ED, 86, Law); Amaji Obinna Charles (55110959DE, 86, Medicine and Surgery); Adebiyi Tijesunimi (55361970BC, 85, Electrical and Electronics Engineering);  Oke Dorcas (55974720AJ, 83, Medicine and Surgery) and Olowosulu Cassandra Olawumi (56630251JB, 83, Medicine and Surgery).

The VC said: “23,200 candidates scored above 200 in UTME, 20,800 applied for the post UTME in our institution and only 19,268 took the screening and examination.

“The performances of the five best candidates will be monitored and they may be retained after their studies here.

“The public is hereby warned not to influence the admission officials.”
