UNILORIN Acceptance Rate; Admission Statistics, Quota 2019/2020

According to reports, reaching us, Authorities of the University of Ilorin (Unilorin) have begun lobbying the National Universities Commission (NUC) for the increase in the existing admission quota allotted the institution initially pegged at 10,900. The Vice-Chancellor of the institution Prof Sulyman AbdulKareem revealed that Unilorin would admit about 12,000 candidates for the 2019/2020 academic session.

Prof Abdulkareem said the move was to accommodate a huge number of admission seekers, particularly now that Unilorin has become one of the most subscribed citadels of learning in the country. Speaking at the annual breaking of fast (Iftar) with reporters in Ilorin, Abdulkareem disclosed that his goal was to have limitless admission quota but for NUC and Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) regulatory activities.

He said, “My goal as Vice-Chancellor is to have limitless admission quota but we know that is regulated by NUC, and they usually base that on facilities on campus. I must disclose that for 10 years, I was admission Chairman for the University of Ilorin.

“So, I remember many times I carried a message to JAMB and NUC to solicit for an increase in our quota. Even at that, today the normal quota is 10,900 but they are going to give room for alteration and allow us to admit for a session not more than 12,000 Students.

“Our biggest problem is the 100 Level courses that have large number of students, especially if you look at Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Biology that all 100 Level students must take in very large number.

“Till now, we have been having problem. But later in this session, what we have been doing is using our big Lecture Theatre, Multipurpose Theatre and having enough chairs. I thought I was doing something new but when I got to London, I was told that this is the classroom of the future. If you go to that multipurpose theatre now, we have brought in enough gadgets to make lecture delivery easy for the lecturers and for the students to learn.

“The issue though is that we cannot go on increasing the number, and I have been soliciting for TETFUND assistance to have large lecture theatres that can accommodate large class size. But they are also advising us that when a class gets too large, it is very difficult for lecturers to monitor.”
