AAUA 2015/16 Post UTME: Over 17,000 Candidates Jostle for Less than 4,000 Space

No fewer than 17, 904 candidates who registered for the 2015/2016 Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, Ondo State, are jostling for about 4,000 available spaces in the institution.
The varsity’s Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic), Prof. Oluyemisi Adebowale, gave the revelation while speaking with journalists on the ongoing computer-based test, which started on Monday, August 10, and will end on Tuesday August 18, 2015.
She said, “Over 22,000 candidates picked AAUA through the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board. And 17, 904 candidates qualified for PUTME and we are going to admit below 4,000.”
While reiterating that AAUA’s extant merit-driven admission policy subsists, the DVC warned the candidates to be wary of impostors that might want to extort money and other valuables from them as inducements for admission.
She explained, “At the end of the test, we will collate all the results and go to the drawing board to decide the cut-off mark. Any candidate whose score falls within the required mark is automatically admitted. Candidates don’t need to know anybody. Our admission at AAUA is still absolutely merit-driven.”
Expressing delight over the success so far recorded at the ongoing exercise in the institution, Prof. Adebowale said, “So far, it has been a success story. The facilities and the technical know-how we have put in place are working perfectly. We have improved greatly on the previous exercise. Prior to this year’s exercise, results were delayed till after the whole exercise, leading to congestion and security challenges because many of the candidates would have to hang around.
“This time around, we organised the exercise in such a way that candidates receive their results daily. We close by 3:00pm every day, give some hours’ gap for candidates to return to their various homes. By 7:00pm, we release their scores and send to their phones via SMS.”
