Motto: Right thinking is the fount [of knowledge]
The University of Ibadan (UI) is apparently the best university in Nigeria currently. It is the first and most popular university in Nigeria too. As a way of fighting colonialism in Nigeria, UI was established in 1946 to educate and enlighten Nigerians on the evils associated with colonialism.
UI has produced thousands of great personalities. Take for instance, people like; Chinua Achebe, Wole Soyinkan etc, actually studied in this university. This should explain to you why the school is respected and very competitive in Nigeria.
Due to the competitive nature of UI, it is not very easy to meet the UTME or Direct Entry admission requirements of the university.
Suffice to say that UI has the strictest requirements for admission in Nigeria. In other words, any aspirant that do not meet up with the admission requirements will definitely not be offered admission into the school.
Note that UI does not accept second choice candidates for admission. To gain admission into UI, you must make the university your first choice of institution.
