I just want you to know something if you applied for Unilorin as the first choice, welcome to the school where it doesn’t matter even if you have the best result.

Before you learn these 15 facts about Unilorin plus facts about Unilorin post utme.

I have something for you.

We have taken time to write a very powerful guide, this guide is more in depth that you can imagine.

All that the University of Ilorin demands from you are in there.

You need to read that because if you do you will definitely gain admission this year and the hallucination that you have engaged yourself with all this while will stop because you will be facing the reality of undeniable admission.

Please see: How to gain admission into Unilorin no matter what, in 2019.

Now let’s see those facts and things that you must know about Unilorin.

#1 Fact – High Jamb Score Does not guarantee your admission but it is important.

If you scored 300+ in Jamb, please, pocket it because that is just your ticket to enter the gate and sit for Unilorin post utme.

In case your mind has gone too far that you will surely gain admission because you scored high.

The first fact about Unilorin is, your Jamb score is your ticket and nothing more than that.

Many a time, the University of Ilorin has doubted how ‘sound’ the joint admission and matriculation board examination is and for this reason, the University of Ilorin holds her post utme test dearly.

Don’t misquote my words, It is not as if scoring high in jamb is useless. Who is going to say that?

Look at the image below, it shows the most important admission criteria for admission into the University of Ilorin.

Facts about unilorin post utme
From this, your Jamb score is the first thing you need.

The reason it appears to be the most important fact here is this; you need to first score above the cut-off mark for your course or better still, get 180 which is the specified jamb cut off mark.

If you score 182 and you applied for a course that you need 210, two things will happen.

First, you will sit for the post utme exam, except you decide not to because 180 is the minimum cut off mark. So, you already have the ticket to sit for the exam.

Secondly, another thing that will happen is, you will not gain admission (I mean if, for example, you applied for a course where you need 210), why? Because you have only a ticket, what you need is a qualification.

The first qualification is scoring above the cut-off mark for your course at least 10 points above and then you will have a chance for admission. That is what that image above means.

#2 fact – Unilorin does not accept second choice.

An aspirant took to our page to inquire if Unilorin accepts second choice.

It isn’t any news, however, most student still don’t know that Unilorin does not accept first choice applicant. That’s conclusive no need to convince you with stories.

Unilorin does not accept first choice, and it is 100% certain.

As a matter of fact, amid the post utme registration when you’re applying you will only see an option for first choice only, there would be no place to signify second choice.

Look at the image below, that is the  University of Ilorin post utme registration page.

From what you can seen in the image (look at the place that says choice).

things to know about unilorin

Once you click that choice, you will see something like this below will pop-out.

unilorin regustration

From what is there, you can only pick a first choice which you don’t even need to pick because it would be selected automatically since that is the only option.

The funny part is, you will still find out that, most aspirants made Unilorin second choice amid their Jamb registration.

It is not bad though, at least it will beautify the form. Unilorin does not accept anything more than first choice, hope that is clear enough.

#3 facts – Having lots of A’s and B’s in O’level is not an admission guarantee.

It feels good to know you have a very lovely O’level result beautified with A’s and B’s.

One bitter fact about Unilorin is A’s and B’s will not change anything if you perform low in post utme and jamb.

However, it is important for judging who is the best among two or more people who applied for the same course, but only in terms of selecting the best; that is when they will look at your O’level performance.

The bottom line here is; O’level itself does not qualify you, it only certifies you.

That doesn’t mean you should not present a good O’level certificate, just as I said, O’level helps in determining the best if every other person qualify and you qualify too regarding jamb and post utme score.

#4 fact – Unilorin can withdraw you even after gaining admission.

I bet a lot of people don’t know this.
Many students jubilate after gaining admission.

But the caveat fact about Unilorin: Unilorin withdraws a lot of students after giving them admission.

You may be like ” Osas Divine, is that true, if so Why?

Well, I can’t fully state a reason Unilorin withdraws student, but it has to do with qualifications and documents that you will be asked to submit, also to inform you; a test will be organized after giving you admission (freshers test).

All these again is to determine if you are truly qualified for your course.
Unilorin is not a playground that is what they want you to know.

You will be made to write a fresher test after Unilorin gives you admission, and they have the right to withdraw you or shift you to another department entirely if you go below expectation.

To be on a safer side, you need to look for someone who knows a lot about the University of Ilorin, meet this person and ask him or her to guide you by telling exactly what you must do in order to finally become a full student.

If you have no one to guide you, not only will you fail to do the required things because you don’t know them. You will eventually miss your admission. There are a lot of things to know about Unilorin.

#8 fact: Unilorin does not have any such thing as a total aggregate score:

Many aspirants always ask this question; how does Unilorin calculate aggregate score like other school does.

For example, a specific point is given to a student who has many A’s in O’level or who scored this or that.

Blah Blah Blah!

If you think of such with the University of Ilorin, you’re mistaking.

Unilorin has a private and special way of determining who is qualified, and it is best known to them, it has nothing to do with meeting a specific aggregate point.

  • Score high in jamb
  • Score high in post utme
  • Have your required O’level points.

Yeah! that is all you need.

#9 fact: Unilorin places value on students from the catchment areas.

This is a tradition of all federal institutions in Nigeria and not just Unilorin. This is a rule of thumb specified by the federal government.

However, Unilorin bids to this more seriously, students from the catchment area have more chances.

The way they analyze admission chance is different for those from the catchment area and those that are not from the catchment area.

This is a minimum cut off mark you must score in order to be qualified for admission is 50%.

But this is not limited to every course. Each course has it own cut off mark, the more competitive your course is the more you will need to score high.

For example, as a medical student, you have to score above 77 in Unilorin post utme or you will be given another course.

This is a rule of thumb because Unilorin places more value on post utme, not Jamb.

#11 fact: You only need your print out and a pen on the post utme day.

Just in case you need to know, all you need is your pen on the day of the post utme.

Remember you’re facing the computer so that is it. But, remember to go with your print out on that day.

You will need it, do not forget it at home.

A lot of aspirants don’t know this, there is no need to come down all the way from lagos if you reside there.

It is the same system, and nothing changes.
