… calls for calm, warns anxious candidates to stay out of trouble
The Management of the Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), has assured candidates who scored appreciable marks in the just concluded 2022/2023 Joint Universities’ Preliminary Examination Board (JUPEB) to remain calm as efforts are already being made to ensure they get admissions for the 2023/2024 academic session.
A statement signed by the Director of JUPEB, FUOYE, Dr. Gabriel Ogunleye, disclosed further that the University’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abayomi Sunday Fasina, has been magnanimous enough to bring the cut off mark for admitting JUPEB candidates through Direct entry, down to two (2) points and even gave room for those who failed the exam but sat for 2023 UTME, to get admission into various courses in 100L . However, the statement warned candidates suspected to be preparing to cause trouble, to perish the thought and rather toe the line of peace.
Dr. Ogunleye’s statement reads in part:
“It has come to the notice of the FUOYE JUPEB centre that some unscrupulous candidates who failed to meet up with the admission criteria of the University are to cause a kind of mayhem by disrupting the peace of the University.
This is to stern a note of warning to those candidates that the University would not tolerate any attempts by any outsiders who are not matriculated students of the University to disrupt the peace of the University.
The University management under the able leadership of our Vice Chancellor has graciously considered by reducing the admission point of students in her JUPEB programme to 2 points this year out of 16 points. The University has also been considering those who failed the JUPEB programme in her centre to be admitted into 100 level which cannot be found in any other University.
Kindly note that the regulated medical courses have a few slots and is not by automatic and is basically by merit.
The medical courses are already over-populated as a result of the merging of stream A and B this year.
We therefore advise all candidates seeking admission into the University to abide by the admission policies of the University.
Any candidate caught in the act of causing trouble would be handed over to the relevant authority.
