According to Benjamin, the period slated for the admission processes as agreed during a policy meeting with stakeholders on June 11, at Gbongan, Osun, remains sacrosanct.

“The board has commenced the processes for admission for the 2019/2020 academic session in earnest.

“The first choice admission for public universities commenced from Aug. 21 and will end on Nov. 16.

“For private universities, it will be from Aug. 21, 2019, to Feb. 15, 2020.

“The second choice admission for public universities will be from Nov. 17 to Dec. 17,” he said.

Benjamin told NAN that the projection for 2019 was to ensure that candidates utilised more available spaces unlike in 2018 when there were over 500,000 unutilised available spaces in all the tiers of tertiary institutions.
