Why we didn’t admit applicant with 326 JAMB score — UNILAG

The University of Lagos, UNILAG, has spoken out to debunk a claim which has gone viral on social media by a female candidate who applied to the University after scoring 326 in the last Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board(JAMB) that the University deliberately denied her admission and therefore called for help.

The university said;

“But the applicant in question even though we got to know her identity through a back-end search of our database as she did not supply her details in her viral message, failed to upload her ‘OL’ result within the stipulated deadline for our 2022 admissions exercise,” the University said.

“So, while the University appreciates the plight of the applicant, it is unable to take any further action on this 2022 admission exercise.

“To this end, management wishes to assure candidates and the general public that the University remains committed to its hallmark of the transparent, credible, and open admission process,” the University stressed.
