The management of the University of Ilorin has disclosed that a total of 59,306 candidates are expected to take part in a four-day screening exercise for the 2019/2020 academic session of the school.

Akogun also said that the breakdown of the figure showed that 51,868 are UTME candidates while the remaining 7,438 are Direct Entry candidates.

It would be recalled that the vice chancellor of the university, Professor Age Abdulkareem, had put the carrying capacity of the university for the 2019/2020 admission at about 10,000 students

He said that the screening exercise, which commenced at 7:00 am was very peaceful, adding that the candidates had comported themselves in an orderly manner.

However, some parents had complained that requirements to sit for the CBT test should be spelt out to candidates in the future, saying that so many candidates were disturbed when asked to produce certain documents before they could sit for the test.

They also called on the school authority to provide adequate transportation into and outside the university campus, saying that large population of candidates and their guardians had transportation challenges.
