The Lagos State University has revealed that its admissions merit list for the 2016/2017 academic session will be released in the next few days by the Joint Admission Matriculation Board. The Acting Head, LASU’s Centre for Information, Press and Public Relations, Mr. Adekoya Martins, said that the number of students to be offered admission on the merit list could not be ascertained by the university because it was being handled by JAMB.
He said the university had sent a list of the successful candidates for the first batch of its admission screening to JAMB for approval. He said, “Information reaching me from the admission office is that JAMB will release the merit list this week, but the number of the admitted students is undisclosed.
“We cannot actually determine the number of students that JAMB will approve for us in the first batch from the list that was sent to the board by the university.”
LASU had adopted an online screening approach for the admission of candidates for the 2016/2017 academic session. The institution’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun, said that only candidates who chose LASU would be screened online. Fagbohun said that an online application portal had already been designed for the candidates to upload their results, certificates and other relevant data.
He said, “The university will go online and shortlist the credentials of successful candidates, who chose LASU as their first choice for onward transmission to JAMB.”
