Prof Ogundipe said that over 50,000 candidates applied for admission into the university in the 2020/2021 academic session, with about 22,000 scoring 200 marks and above.
According to him, 21,955 candidates have so far paid for the conduct of the Post-UTME test.
”It is the first time that we are conducting this type of examination, and it is such that these candidates must have their laptops with cameras.
”If they do not have a camera attached to their laptops, they will not be allowed to participate in the examination.
”We expect the results to come out within one week after the conduct of the examination,” he said.
Ogundipe told NAN that the university had collapsed 2020/2021 academic session with 2021/2022 academic session.
“It is going to affect our admission number, because it means we have to admit two streams, except if JAMB is not conducting its examination this year.
”If it is conducting, we are mandated to admit students,” the vice-chancellor said.
Ogundipe reiterated that the institution would commence online lectures for returning students on Monday.
He said that the university could not afford to bring back students to campus due to COVID-19 pandemic.
