Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, Professor Abel Idowu Olayinka has disclosed that the management of the institution is to expel about 328 students over “shameful academic results” in the recently concluded 2016/2017 academic session.
Professor Olayinka who dropped this hint in a statement on Wednesday attributed the “shameful academic results” of the 328 students to the non conduct of Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination test before the affected students and others in their set were admitted.
According to Professor Olayinka, the list of the affected students were compiled following the “meeting of the University Senate held on March 19 and 20 to deliberate on the 2016/2017 academic results of the final year and non-final year students.”
The Vice Chancellor declared that the affected students could not meet up with the minimum condition approved by the University of Ibadan Senate, saying “one out of every nine of the 100 level students did not meet the minimum condition to retain their studentship.”
“It can be observed that students in the science-based disciplines, in particular, did not perform too well, with the pass rate being lowest at 67.5 per cent at the faculty of Veterinary Medicine. On the other hand, the Humanities-based discipline posted better results, with the best coming from the Faculty of Law at 99.2 per cent.”he said.
