A total of 25,700 candidates are jostling for 6,500 slots in the 2015 post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination screening of the University of Jos.
This was disclosed by Jilli Damdam, the UniJos Registrar.
The registrar explained that the school would have admitted only 4,500 but for recent increase in the carrying capacity of the university by the National Universities Commission.
Damdam said: “We had nine faculties and three new ones were approved for the school.
“Therefore, the NUC increased our carrying capacity from 4,500 to 6,500.”
He said the registration for the post-UTME started on August 10 and would end on August 27.
He added: “The actual test (exams) will take place from August 28 to September 5, 2015.
