National Universities Commission will admit Only 30% UTME Students This Year

The National Universities Commission (NUC), has announced that only 30 per cent out of the 1.7 million candidates who wrote the unified tertiary matriculation examination
(UTME) will be admitted this year.
The executive Secretary of the commission, Prof. Abubakar Rasheed, said this at a one day public hearing on the regulatory conflict between JAMB and universities in offering admission in Nigeria.
According to him, the only way to avert admission crisis in the country was to either
expand access or create more universities to accommodate students. “The crisis of admission in this country inevitable. Unless we expand spaces we shall continue to have admission crisis in this country.
“Every exam has its own problem. We believe JAMB exam is credible and all of us operating in the system respect the results of JAMB exam ,” he said.
JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede said there was no conflict between JAMB He said: “It is not true that we have 1.7 million candidates that are ready to go into the Nigerian university system. Of the 1.7 million that took the exam I can say conveniently that not more than 30 per cent of them are not prepared for admission, they are just trying. They do not have the five O
level required to go into the university.
“Secondly, let me also let us realize that 10 per cent of the 1.7 million that we see or 1.9 as the case may be they are not what can be Categorized as belong to the net enrolment
ratio for entering tertiary education. They belong to the gross enrolment ratio. “80 per cent of candidates sitting at the point of sitting do not have the O level at all. They
are awaiting results. So when we are building our theories and analysis, we need to be very cautious
