The management of the Federal University of Agriculture Abeokuta (FUNAAB) has disclosed that the University will only admit 3,500 out of the 12,500 candidates that participated in the 2015 post-UTME screening exercise.
This was made known by the Director of Academic Planning, Professor Olukayode Akinyemi while commenting on the just concluded screening exercise.
He commended the efforts of the Federal Government in bench-marking the admission process, because it would allow many prospective students to have access to other levels of higher education such as the Polytechnics and Colleges of Education.
He stated that it was imperative for Universities to have their own bench-marks, to maintain high standards. He noted that there were still other ways of screening-out candidates with bad characters even though they might have met the basic academic requirements in the interest of the system.
Professor Akinyemi, however, advised candidates who could not be admitted into FUNAAB not to be discouraged as there were other institutions that could still admit them, because for now, FUNAAB could only admit about 3,500 applicants.
