  1. For those who checked their admission status and it said submitted application is being processed although the list is out please what does it mean?

  2. “You have not been admitted yet”.Does this means all the admission lists is out already..?Has UNIBEN admitted all the candidate they want to admit?

  3. I am trying to login and it is showing me invalid credential and i ave tried as much as possible and the email to change the password and username has been blocked please what should i do?i need ur help.

    1. pls admin respond to all these questions…. people are seriously panic about this issue…let them know what next to do… is there still second batch admission list?… then if yes let them know nd if there wont be let them know.. afterall you people had cheated we students before.. those first set of students that collected uniben postutme form obtained d form at the rate of #3500…. which you people collected just #2500 from d next batch of students that obtained d form after the intervention of JAMB…mostly no admission for dos screened in third batch..why should that be?????? and they are here asking if there is still hope but yet no one responded to them.. just upload it to their kofa account.. ADMITTED or NOT ADMITTED… rather than this long lasting suspence

        1. Admission has been closed, that is what they told me when I went to the admission office. And I saw the notice on the walls.

  4. Femi, I agree with u, the suspense is just too much and I don’t even understand on what basis admission is given because there isn’t even a point system or whatever… I just implore them to at least be active on this page and not to disappoint us after all this waiting and waiting. Please prove that our putting The great Uniben isn’t the biggest mistake we have made.

  5. What about the Supplementary applicants? And I heard that Jamb is done with giving admission to Univsersity applicants. So what is the fate of those that still have ”SUBMITTED” on their KOFA page??

  6. We were told that the Admission lists will be batch by batch when the first list was released. The second list was just released and now, for the third list, we heard JAMB has closed admission…
    What is really going on with Admission in Uniben this year???

  7. is admission still on? because my kofa page still shows submitted and i was told if y werent admitted your kofa page will read not admitted?
