Akoka, Lagos state – The University of Lagos (UNILAG) management has debunked the claims made by a female candidate who accused the institution of deliberately denying her admission despite scoring 326 out of 400 in the last Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
What really happened, UNILAG explains
According to UNILAG, the applicant failed to upload her secondary school certificate result on the JAMB Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) before the stipulated deadline.
The university clarified that its admission process, requirements, guidelines, and timelines are widely publicized to guide every applicant and that the applicant failed to meet the requirement for an offer of admission.

The university reaffirmed its commitment to a transparent, credible, and open admission process and assured candidates and the general public that it remains dedicated to this hallmark.
