The Joint Universities Preliminary Examination Board (JUPEB) has accredited KolaDaisi University, Ibadan (KDU-I) as an official centre for preliminary and advanced studies.
The approval came following a positive rating and endorsement of the infrastructural and manpower profiles of KDU-I by the special JUPEB inspection team to the university, led by the Board’s Registrar, Professor Duro Ajeyalemi, who was represented by his Head of Academic Affairs, Mrs Agatha O. Bosini and accompanied by the JUPEB Test Officer, Mrs Amucha Happiness and the Obafemi Awolowo university’s JUPEB Coordinator, Professor M.A Akanni.
Consequently, KDU-I has therefore fixed next July as the take-off date of its School of Preliminary and Advanced Studies to groom remedial and direct level candidates for university admissions.
According to the Vice Chancellor, Professor Kolade Ayorinde, the Preliminary Unit of the institution would handle the single session remedial programme in Arts, Management, Social Sciences and Sciences.
The Vice Chancellor reiterated that the programme, basically designed for school certificate holders, who had deficiency with one or two of the five core subjects required for university admission, would equally be tutored for the Universal Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), O-Level and Preliminary subjects.
Professor Ayorinde said such candidates who were able to remedy their subject deficiency; pass the university’s remedial examination and also obtain minimum national cut-off score from the UTME, would be guaranteed admission into KolaDaisi University, Ibadan.
He further disclosed that the KD would equally offer opportunities for candidates to be groomed for the one year advance level programme, under the JUPES, which would enable them upon successful completion to be directly admitted into the 200 level undergraduate degree programmes in any university.
Giving his words for quality assurance, Professor Ayorinde said: “The university has put in place world class infrastructure to ensure non compromise of standards, in such a way that the aspirations of the candidates will be fulfilled and at the same time cushioning the attendant stress of rigorous academic exercise.
“The university’s JUPEB programme will take off without delay in July with various subjects comprising of English Literature, Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Agricultural Sciences and Geography”.
Other subjects that will be taught according to him will include: Government, Christian/Islamic Religious Knowledge, French, History, Economics, Account and Business Studies.
