Fresh students of the University of Ibadan no longer have to go through the hassle of manual registration.
The introduction of online portals in addition to the already existing portals has created a sense of relief among incoming undergraduates who were dreading the ordeal of manual registration.
Before now, registration venues would be overcrowded with freshers, as they are popularly called, wanting to finish one registration and move to the next.
An interesting development is the introduction of the online medical registration.
Fresh students can now log on to the website of the university health centre to complete medical forms.
Also, the students would be assigned (by faculty) to various radiological centres for medical tests and they would be given a date and venue for medical screening to avoid overcrowding.
A new student, who prefers to be anonymous, expressed satisfaction at the process.
“The registration started on Tuesday and the rush has been limited to the cyber cafes around.
“I have not done mine but I know people who have. It’s better this way, I heard of the stress of the former method.
“An old friend told me that she got to Jaja by 6am to pick a number on the queue; she got number 70. Thank God we don’t have to go through that.”
