Kaduna State University (KASU) To Admit Only 2,260 Out Of 12,904 Post-UTME Candidates That Participated For The Exam
The Kaduna State University (KASU) will admit only 2,260 of 12,904 candidates who applied for the 2015 post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) admission screening exercise.
According to the Director of Academic Planning, KASU, Dr. Maharazu Kubau, the figure represented only those who scored 180 points and above in the UTME and selected KASU as their first choice.
He said the number of candidates who had applied for admission into the university was much higher, but that only those who met this year’s Joint Admission’s Matriculation Board (JAMB) cut-off point, were invited.
He said that the university would have admitted only 1,860, but the National Universities Commission (NUC) had recently increased the university’s carrying capacity to 2,260.
The director added that the examination, which started Wednesday, would last for six days, with about 2,000 candidates sitting for the examination on daily.
