The University of Lagos (UNILAG) says it has not released its cut-off marks for the 2021/2022 academic session as rumoured in some quarters.
According to NAN, Oladejo Azeez, the institution’s registrar, broke the news in a statement on Thursday.
The institution had held its online post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) between February 15 and 23 and thereafter released the results of candidates.
Days after the exercise, however, unverified reports had claimed that the institution had released its cut-off marks.
Reacting to the development, Azeez urged the public to disregard such claims, noting that the information did not originate from the institution.
“The attention of the university of Lagos has been drawn to a website‘s publication that claims that the institution has released cut off marks online for placements of candidates for the 2021/2022 academic session,” it read.
“It even went ahead to attribute the release of the supposed cut off marks to the school management, noting that the cut off marks were for all courses and Departments of the university.
“The university management wishes to inform prospective students and the general public that the piece of information released by the website is false, malicious, misleading, and grossly inaccurate.
“We wish to state categorically that it did not emanate from this institution. Members of the general public are therefore advised to make recourse only to the official communication channels of the university; www.unilag.edu.ng.
“They could also check out the institution’s various social media accounts, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube, for the purpose of accurate information about 2020/2021 admissions.”
