Federal institutions in Nigeria usually get sought for nation-wide and this happens to be one of the reasons why institutions place many checks and factors that will determine who should be admitted among the large number of candidates seeking admission.
Before 2020 one of the major criteria of admission is if you are an indigenous person, that is to the say if you come from Kwara State or any of the school catchment area you stand better chance of admission.
This factor always came first, but admission wasn’t entirely limited to your indigenous status, though it was the first determinant in filling the quota allotted to the University of Ilorin by the Nigerian Universities Commission.
But in 2019, the Federal government of Nigeria announced that schools should no longer use catchment area as a determinant of admission.
So, let’s now dwell in the presence, listed below are the current criteria of admission that you neeed to secure admission Into the University of Ilorin in 2020.
