Admission: UNIBEN Urges Prospective Students To Be Patient
The management of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) has appealed to students seeking admission into the institution to be patient with its screening.
The university’s spokesman Michael Osasuyi made the plea yesterday in Benin, the state capital, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
Osasuyi said students who chose the institution and scored above the 200 in this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) were over 30,000, hence the crowd at the screening centres.
He said: “The screening started in September and it is ongoing. The third batch of prospective students is being screened at present.
“The screening is all about sighting of credentials, such as the results issued by the West Africa Examination Council and National Examination Council (NECO).
“We are appealing to candidates and parents to be patient as the screening goes on.”
NAN reports that prospective students of the institution wait several hours to take their turn in the exercise.
Also, parents who accompany their wards to the screening venues are expressing dissatisfaction over the lapses they experience in the process.
