AAUA 2014/2015 Admission: JAMB Approves First Batch
The first batch of admission for the 2014/2015 academic session of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, Ondo State, Nigeria, has been approved by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board.
The Deputy Vice Chancellor, Prof. Rotimi Ajayi, gave the revelation on Wednesday last week, while briefing the Information Unit of the University on the outcome of the Institution’s Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, PUTME, which took place from Wednesday, August 6, to Tuesday, August 12, 2014. The results were released and posted on the University web site less than 24 hours after the conclusion.
Prof. Ajayi said, “The first batch of our admission will be released very soon. It has been approved by JAMB and it will be made public very soon. And we are already working on the supplementary admission list in order to meet up with the JAMB October deadline admission exercise.”
Prof. Ajayi who disclosed that the University’s admission quota this year was about 4, 000, said that 9,140 of about 17,000 Candidates who took part in the Post-UTME scored 40 per cent and above.
The DVC expressed satisfaction at the conduct of the Post-UTME, saying, “I was impressed by conduct of exams. The exercise was hugely successful. Remember that this is first time of using our own Computer-Based Test model facilities and about 17,000 candidates were tested. There was evidence of thorough planning.”
Responding to the issue of some candidates whose results were yet to be released, The DVC said, “Some results were yet to be released because some of the candidates failed to comply with the exam instructions, including attempting more than required questions. We are still going to release more results. As at today (Wednesday, August 27), we have released 16,611 results out of which 45 per cent scored below 40 per cent, while 55% of them passed.
Meanwhile, the Deputy Registrar (Academic), Mr. Adedayo Adedeji, who spoke with the Information on Tuesday last week, reminded candidates that the 40 per cent pass mark for the exercise is not the cut-off mark for admission.
Mr. Adedeji said the pass mark for the University system is 40 per cent while the cut-off mark varies from programme to programme.
Oluwatimileyin John Emmanuel, who applied to study Philosophy, had the highest mark of 90 per cent in the Post-UTME but scored 201 in UTME.
Ayomide Mayowa Adasu, whose choice of course of study is Economics, came second with 82 per cent in Post-UTME and 213 in UTME.
The duo of Mosopefoluwa Fayehun and Moyosoreoluwa Akinsete who applied for Law scored 80 per cent each to occupy third position. Fayehun however scored 250 in UTME while Akinsete had 228 in the same examination.
