The Interview

When asked, 

 Students admitted for the 2019/20 academic session of the university have not resumed, will there be admission exercise for the 2020/21 session for new students?

His response ;

 Our academic calendar was running far behind schedule before the COVID-19 lockdown and closure of the university since March this year. Many candidates have already applied to the University of Ibadan for the 2020/2021 academic session and to that extent we have a responsibility to process their admission. We plan to organize their Post UTME screening next month. The schedule for this will be announced shortly.

Question: Is there an expectation that an academic session will be cancelled as a result of disruption in the academic calendar?

His Answer:

  Maybe it is too early to talk of cancellation of an academic session at this point. The Senate of the University will appraise the situation when normalcy returns and decide as appropriate.

Aspirants are therefore advised to gear up, dust their book and ready for their Post-UTME exams.
