” Since the release of the Merit Admission Lists for 2012/2013 Academic Session – Second Choice, Catchment Area & Direct Entry, I have been bombarded with tons of questions. In order to respond to these questions in a more granular manner, I will try to discuss in this forum the meaning of the lists that have been published as much as I know, which will not stand as a mis-guide to any person nor as being implicative of my office or person.

Basically we need to understand that the two lists just released are Merit Lists . So, just likethe previous lists, all of our names will not be on these lists. The lists will only comprise of those candidates who have met the criteria for Merit admissions in either one of the categories.

Will there be more lists?
Of course. I’m sure there will be more lists. It is not really my schedule to discuss these lists in details. However, I am sure there will be other lists and I personally expect those other lists tocontain the names of Pre-degree candidates, candidates for some of the new courses to which candidates have not yet been admitted, like;
*. Chemical Engr.
*. Courses in the College of Agricultural and Science Education.

There are also some rumours about some other new courses likely to be introduced in this years admissions, such as;
*. Business Administration.
*. Economics.
*. Entrepreneurial Studies.
*. etc.

Obviously candidates will be needed to fill up these courses.

Catchment Area admissions.
Now there is a lot of contention here. Some candidates feel that if they are from the catchment area they should be admitted. This opinion is wrong. Will the University admit everyone from your village because you are thehost community or the host state or a part of the catchment area. This is practically impossible.

The University will usually select the top scorer from a particular area within the guidelines of the what ever quota allocation has been made to such a course.
