University of Ibadan UI Admission Screening News Updates for 2017/2018 Session.
The attention of Management of Univrsity of Ibadan (UI) has been drawn to pieces of information purportedly issued by the University regarding cut-off points for courses as well as other unsubstantiated claims about the 2017/2018 admission exercise.
For the avoidance of doubt, Management wishes to inform all prospective applicants and the general public that the admission process in the University has not yet started.
They are, therefore, advised to dismiss all such claims and be on the look-out for information on the commencement of the exercise.
Any candidate who transacts business with unscrupulous elements who are out to defraud them does so at his/her own risk.
Furthermore, candidates who applied for Pharmacy in the University are reminded to either change their course or Institution as the course is not on offer for the 2017/18 session.
The only authentic website of the University from which information on the admission exercise could be obtained is www.ui.edu.ng.
Candidates are requested to note the criteria for the admission exercise as listed below:
- UTME CUT-OFF POINT FOR THE UNIVERSITY: The Institutional UTME cut-off point for the University is still 200 marks. Therefore, only candidates who scored 200 and above are eligible to participate in the screening exercise that will take place at a time to be announced later. For the avoidance of doubt, any candidate with a score below 200 will not be considered for the screening.
- POST UTME SCREENING: Candidates are requested to note that a written post UTME screening exercise will be held at a date to be communicated very soon. To this effect, candidates are advised to be on the lookout for the date and other modalities for the written test.

The University will not take any responsibility for any misleading and fraudulent information that may be obtained from any other website apart from the official University website.
- CENTRAL ADMISSION PROCESSING SYSTEM (CAPS): The 2017/18 admission exercise will be based on the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS), a system designed by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to automate the admissions process to tertiary institutions. The system introduces a number of innovations into the admission process. These include opportunities for candidates to confirm provisional admissions thus eliminating cases of multiple admission or ignorance about admission status. Candidates are therefore advised to familiarize themselves with the process to enable them check and track their admission status at any point in time on the JAMB portal.
- LOGIN IN OF BIODATA: Candidates will be able to login their biodata, prelude the post UTME screening with effect from the last week in August, 2017. Candidates should therefore be on the lookout for the opening of the portal. Please note that there will not be any extension to the closing date of the portal as the University is running behind schedule.
