The University of Ilorin Deputy Vice Chancellor gave thanks to God for recording a smooth sailing screening exercise, saying that the university had begun process of colating the result for the admission of the successful candidates.

On the two students that were apprehended for examination malpractice on Monday during the screening exercise, Professor Malomo said one of them has been re-considered to write the test because investigation revealed that the error was from the cyber cafe operator where he registered as the operator mistakenly uploaded different passport.

She therefore advised applicants to be very vigilant while registering in the cafe and promptly report any error committed during the registration to the university through University ‘Help Desk’for possible solution before the exam day.
