UI to admit only 3,500 out of the 20,949 students who sat for pume - VC

The vice chancellor of the premier university in Nigeria, University of Ibadan, UI, Professor Abel Idowu Olayinka has announced on Monday that only 3,500 of the 20,949 pume candidates would be admitted.
He said 60,000 students chose UI in Jamb and of this figure, only 20,949 were able to sit for the pume. 
He however stated that 9,266 scored 50% and above.
He revealed this at a recent media chat on Diamond FM, one if the University's radio, on Monday. 
The vc emphasized that the 200 set as the cut-off for registering for pume was to maintain standard. He also declared that the school has not yet decided on the cut-off to be used for admission. 
In his statements: "I don’t even know what the cut off mark will be, the committee will meet and decide. Our motive is to improve the quality."
“About 60,000 candidates picked UI, 20,949 sat for the Post UTME, 9,266 scored 50 and above (which represents about 44.2 percent) in the examination".
He also said the highest score in the pume was 86.
He also said, "The highest score was 86 percent. We have to consider merit which is 45 percent, locality which is 30 percent, all the states of the federation is catchment area of UI, then ELDS".
He however stated that the school has the capacity to admit about 7,000 students but chooses to admit just half the number because they want to expand the postgraduates.
“UI is the most competitive, we can only admit at most 3,500. I must also said that we are allowed to admit about 7,000. We have about 7,300 bed spaces. Another reason why we are admitting less undergraduates is because we want to expand post-graduates
“We have about 27,000 students, the rate is 16.5 whereas in Harvard it is about 5.1". He said.
