According to the Registrar, the admission arrangements will go through the Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) for approval, Professor Oloyede stated.
He further maintained that opening the portal gives easy access for institutions to upload shortlisted applicants’ names for 2020/2021 admissions.
Adding that the board will approve only qualified applicants as proposed by their institutions for admission.
“Of course, time afterward. Every institution is already uploading, not just the public that desires to upload.
Emphasising that many institutions, especially private ones, have begun admission.
Nevertheless, the registrar added that public universities had yet to fully start the procedure, partially because last year’s admissions were not yet completed.
Prof Oloyede stated: “It is also important to keep in mind that admission is not only for universities.” There are polytechnics and educational colleges, and they are not hampered by the strike, other than the closure due to COVID-19.
“There are various stages of the session, so it is not one size fits all.”
The registrar affirms, however, that the date for the sale of this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) forms to the country’s pervasive COVID-19 crisis has not been set.
Consequently, the examination board revealed that it would soon conclude arrangements concerning sale of the form.
