University Of Jos Screens 25,000 students during its 2016/2017 Admission screening exercise which began since September 5th, 2016.
According to the Principal Assistant Registrar in charge of Information and Publications, Mr Abdullahi Abdullahi, he said that the applicants were those sent to the institution by JAMB.
He said the university would admit only 7,000 applicants, adding that the Faculty of Medicine had the highest number of qualified applicants with 10,000 competing for the available slots.
He said the screening, which was initially scheduled to be completed on Sept. 14, was extended by two days due to the Eid el-Kabir celebration.
The official said the university would strictly adhere to the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB’s) guidelines that emphasised merit, educationally disadvantaged areas and catchment areas in the admission process.
Abdullahi assured all the applicants that everyone would be screened “even if he or she pays the required fees on the very last day”.
