Speaking to reporters, he said that the university was awaiting guidelines from the Federal Ministry of Education before starting the admission process.

“We are yet to really conclude on admission process cos govt asked us to wait for a guideline. Definitely there will be screening but we’re waiting for the guideline,” he said.

The university’s admission office has also put out a disclaimer in the institution’s internal bulletin, Information Flash, warning prospective students and their parents to ignore information about cut-off marks from sources other than the university website.

The statement reads: “The University of Lagos is yet to commence the 2016/2017 admission exercise and consequently has not released any cut-off marks or post-UTME advertisement.

“All prospective 2016/2017 UTME and Direct Entry candidates that chose University of Lagos as their first choice should regularly visit the website (www.unilag.edu.ng) for more information.”

There had been rumours on the social media that UNILAG had fixed UTME cut-off points and started the screening process.
