The Lagos State University (LASU) has on Friday announced that it would adopt the online screening approach for the admission of candidates for the 2016/2017 academic session.
The institution’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun, said that the institution had begun to use the system, adding that candidates, who chose LASU as their first choice as directed by the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB), would be screened online.
In a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the VC said an online application portal had already been designed for the candidates to upload their results, certificates and other relevant data.
His words: “The university will go online and shortlist the credentials of successful candidates, who chose LASU as their first choice, for onward transmission to JAMB.
“We are aware that our prospective students are expecting us to invite them for the screening but it will be done online and we have already started that.”
Fagbohun said that there was no discord between the institution or any other university with JAMB as various positions were being harmonised.
He said that every university is complying with JAMB’s directives not to conduct the Post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.
He said, “We are acting in accordance with JAMB’s directive to screen the candidates’ certificates and other requirements and make our selection from there.”
