LASU To Withdraw Admission Offered To 295 Candidates For Non-clearance

As Exams Begin On Tuesday

By Damilare Adeleye

The Lagos State University (LASU) is set to withdraw its provisional admission offered to no fewer than 295 candidate candidates over the latter inability to secure final clearance to be issued matriculation numbers.

It was learnt that the affected persons were among the 12,298 offered provisional admissions into different departments in the institution.

A statement made available by the institution clarified that candidates were not cleared in the 2023/2024 LASU Central Admissions Clearance (LACACA) Operations.

As a result, it was added that the candidates may not take part in the first-semester examination of the university starting on Tuesday, April 2, 2024.

“The non-clearance of the 295 candidates was not based on the internal processes of the university, but rather on the non-provision of required documents/information by the candidates. These included uploading O’Level results on the JAMB portal to validate their claims on whose premise the admissions were offered.

“The statistics of non-cleared candidates with reasons are as follows: Candidates rejected at ICT due to discrepancy/non-availability of results on the WAEC/NECO portals – 26: Candidates rejected at the Faculty level due to inconsistency in the names on WAEC/NECO/JAMB admission letter and non-availability of admission letter – 66.

“Candidates at Level 1 who refused to upload O’Level results on the JAMB portal and change to the admitted course on JAMB’s portal -138.

“Candidates at Level 2 who did not commence LACACA: 50 candidates were offered admissions as early as October 2023; and 15 were offered in January 2024, totalling 65.

“LACACA operations for the 2023/2024 admission year closed in March 2024," the university's statement read.
