The University of Lagos (UNILAG) has said it admitted only 11,885 students from among no fewer than 120,000 UTME candidates who applied to study at the university.
The vice-chancellor of the university, Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, made this disclosure at the matriculation ceremony held on the campus recently.
He said the new students were the combination of 2020 and 2021 UTME candidates, who were most qualified for admission with 70 per cent of them picked from the former and the rest from the latter.
He said the university combined both exams and admitted only 30 per cent from last UTME candidates so as not to deny the entire applicants admission.
While congratulating them and their parents, he urged them to be diligent, focused and law-abiding to enable them to do well in their studies and other activities expected of them and also graduate in record time.
Professor Ogundipe told them that UNILAG had a zero tolerance for all forms of social vices including cultism, hooliganism, examination malpractice, sexual harassment, fighting and so forth, stressing that any student who runs foul of any of these ills would face the law.
He also told them to be actively involved in students’ union activities and within the limit of the law and in other legitimate activities that would prepare them well for leadership positions in the future.
He said the university, on its part, was well-positioned to support them in making their studentship worthwhile.
