The University of Jos has extended the screening of 25,000 applicants for admission into the 2016/2017 academic session to Friday, the institution’s Principal Assistant Registrar (Information and Publications), Abdullahi Abdullahi, has said.
Abdullahi said the screening which began on September 5 was initially scheduled for completion on Wednesday.
“It has been extended by two days following the declaration of a two-day public holiday to mark the Sallah festivity. The screening will now end on September 16, instead of September 14,” the UNIJOS spokesman told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Jos on Tuesday.
Abdullahi said the applicants being screened were those sent to the institution by JAMB to compete for about 7,000 undergraduate slots in the institution.
