Answering questions on a radio programme in Ilorin, Prof. Ambali noted that the management of the University was seriously worried that most Nigerian youths cannot gain admission into their choice institutions due to the low carrying capacity of Nigerian universities.
"For some time now, the ratio of admitted students to the number of applicants has been a serious concern to universities in the country, admission seekers and their parents.
"For instance, out of the more than 103,000 candidates that applied to study in the University of Ilorin in the 2015/2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME), only 11,057 could be admitted due to the low admission quota granted the most subscribed university by the regulatory bodies," he said.
While commenting on the rumour that the University of Ilorin had released its cut-off marks for the 2016/2017 admission exercise, the VC disclosed that no institution in Nigeria will announce its cut-off mark until JAMB and NUC determine the national cut-off marks.
Prof. Ambali said that the University would only announce its cut-off marks after the meeting of all tertiary education institutions in the country with the NUC and JAMB.
He, however, warned desperate admission seekers to be wary of scammers, as the UNILORIN admission is not for sale.
