Dominican University, Ibadan – Notice of Post-UTME Screening

The screening exercise commenced on Wednesday, July 5, 2023. Subsequently, it shall be conducted every Wednesday till the end of the admissions period.

The Dominican University Ibadan has commenced Post UTME Screening for admission into degree programmes of the university ahead of the 2023/2024 Academic Session.

Candidates who chose the Dominican University Ibadan as their preferred institution in the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and other candidates who wish to change their institution of choice to the Dominican University Ibadan are welcome to register for Post UTME Screening.

The screening exercise commenced on Wednesday, July 5, 2023. Subsequently, it shall be conducted every Wednesday till the end of the admissions period.

The cut-off mark for the university is 140.

Interested candidates are required to register for the Post UTME Screening exercise via the university website (www.dui.edu.ng).

CUT-OFF MARK: Misleading, a Misnomer – JAMB

He, therefore, said that the NTMUS of 140 for universities, 120 for Polytechnics and 100 for Colleges of Education arrived at by participants does not mean that an institution with RIAMUS of 200 must admit a candidate on the basis of NTMUS of 140; 120; 100 as the RIAMUS might be equal or higher than the NTMUS.

The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, has described the term, ‘cut-off mark’ as used in Nigeria, as misleading, and a misnomer, stressing that each tertiary institution sets its own Realistic Institutional Admittable Minimum UTME Scores (RIAMUS).

Prof. Oloyede gave this insight during the 2023 Policy Meeting on Admissions to tertiary institutions in Nigeria, held at Andrews Otutu Obaseki Auditorium, National Judicial Institute, Abuja, on Saturday, 24th June, 2023.

According to the Registrar, the term ‘cut-off mark’ is misleading as there is no unified national cut-off mark, rather what is obtainable is the Realistic Institutional Admittable Minimum UTME Scores (RIAMUS), which is the minimum score that the Senate/Academic Board of each institution has approved for the purpose of admission of its students.

Prof. Oloyede, however, stated that no institution can go below its own self-set RIAMUS and no other institution could use the RIAMUS of another for the purpose of its own admissions because the score is institution-specific.

Furthermore, the JAMB helmsman disclosed that UTME score does not single-handedly guarantee any candidate admissions to tertiary institutions in the country, as it is only one of the criteria among many others such as five credit passes in five relevant O’ level subjects, O’ level subjects grading, post-UTME score and 60:40 Science:Arts ratio, among other criteria as defined by the proprietors of the institutions.

In the same vein, the Registrar stated that the National Tolerable Minimum UTME Score (NTMUS) is the score below which no institution in the country will consider any candidate for admission. This, he said, is usually decided at the Policy Meeting not by individual institutions. He, therefore, said that the NTMUS of 140 for universities, 120 for Polytechnics and 100 for Colleges of Education arrived at by participants does not mean that an institution with RIAMUS of 200 must admit a candidate on the basis of NTMUS of 140; 120; 100 as the RIAMUS might be equal or higher than the NTMUS.

On the NTMUS for the 2023 Admission exercise, the Policy Meeting resolved on 140 as the minimum score for admissions into universities and 120 and 100 respectively for admissions into both Polytechnics and Colleges of Education nationwide.

The National Tolerable Minimum UTME Scores of 140 for universities, 120 for Polytechnics and 100 for Colleges of Education were arrived at at the 2023 Policy Meeting on Admissions to tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

JAMB Fixes 24th June 2023 Policy Meeting On Admissions

JAMB has fixed the 2023 Policy Meeting on Admissions for Saturday, 24th June, 2023. The event is scheduled to hold at the National Judicial Institute, Abuja.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has fixed the 2023 Policy Meeting on Admissions for Saturday, 24th June, 2023. The event is scheduled to hold at the National Judicial Institute, Abuja.

During the meeting, stakeholders will discuss critical issues emanating from the just-concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), sale of Direct Entry (DE) application documents in addition to setting the tone for the 2023/2024 Admission exercise in tertiary institutions.

The Policy Meeting will be chaired by the Hon. Minister of Education with all Heads of Tertiary Institutions in attendance along with such relevant regulatory bodies as the National Universities Commission (NUC), National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), and the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE).

In an invitation sent to all Heads of Institutions, the Board states that only two representatives each from respective tertiary institutions comprising the Head of the Institution and one official of the institution, who shall be nominated by the Head, will be welcomed.

Other critical issues slated for discussion at the Policy Meeting aside issues emanating from the presentation of the Registrar, JAMB, on the just-concluded UTME, are other issues of national importance particularly as they concerned the education sector.

The meeting is also expected to chart policy directions for the nation’s tertiary institutions, set admission guidelines, present and analyse application statistics, and candidates’ performance, as well as evaluate the 2023 Admission exercise.

Furthermore, the Policy Meeting, among other things, would decide the acceptable minimum admissible score to be applied in all admissions to be undertaken by all tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

It would be recalled that in 2022, the meeting granted institutions the power to set their minimum allowable cut-off marks for admission, which they cannot go below once adopted and general concessions reached.

The Argument of JAMB Arbitrary Score has Expired – Oloyede

The Registrar stated this when he received a delegation from the Lagos State University of Education (LASUED) on Tuesday, 30th May, 2023, who had paid him a courtesy visit at his office in Bwari, Abuja.

The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, has taken stock of the conduct of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) over the course of the past couple of years and submitted that the purported allegations of award of arbitrary score in the Board’s examination are no longer tenable.

This is not unconnected with the deployment of relevant technology to protect the sanctity of  its examination towards precluding any forms of infractions.

The Registrar stated this when he received a delegation from the Lagos State University of Education (LASUED) on Tuesday, 30th May, 2023, who had paid him a courtesy visit at his office in Bwari, Abuja.

The Registrar, who was speaking against the backdrop of the daily updates on progress and status of all admissions being conducted nationwide by all the over 900 tertiary institutions as presented on the dashboard of the Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS), pointed out that from his office he could see, not only the performance of the candidates, but their screening scores as well. He stated that it was not on account of the correlation of the scores of the high scoring candidates in the UTME with the institutions’ own screening ratings that the validity of the UTME as conducted by JAMB becomes evident.

Furthermore, he stated that those institutions which want to retest the candidates through the conduct of post-UTME are doing so based on outdated perception of the poor validity of JAMB scores.

“I have never discouraged any university from conducting post-UTME because I know it would get to a point that the futility of such would be so clear.”

“It is better they make post-UTME screening rather than examination as the argument that JAMB awards arbitrary scores has expired and can no longer be sustained.”

“Hence, there is no need for institutions to subject candidates to another round of examinations. 

Scores awarded by JAMB are not what they used to be,” he said.

Furthermore, the Registrar advised the universities against localising their intakes and urged them to ensure that their top 10 percent subscription have a global outlook to enhance quality, networking and community development.

Earlier, the Vice-Chancellor, LASUED, Prof. Bidemi Bilkis Lafiaji-Okuneye, said the university’s functionaries had come to the Board’s Headquarters for a familiarisation visit as well as seek closer ties with the Board.

The Vice Chancellor thanked the Board for its support to the institution, promising that the university would not take such support for granted.

Prof. Lafiaji-Okuneye, a Professor of Health Education, was formerly the Provost of Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education (AOCOED) before she was appointed Vice Chancellor, LASUED, when the College was upgraded last year to a full-fledged degree-awarding institution.
