The federal government on Tuesday in Abuja released the admission list for the 2016 and 2017 academic session into Unity Schools.
The release came amid denials by the federal government of increment in the school fees.
The Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, approved the release of the admission list of successful candidates into the Federal Unity Colleges (FUCs) for the 2016/2017 academic year.
Announcing a statement yesterday, Adamu said the list which is available in all the colleges, has also been posted online via www.fmeinterviewtest.com and that candidates who took part in the National Common Entrance Examination should check their names on that site, using their registration numbers.
An analysis of the results indicate that a total of 89,231 candidates took part in the examination, out of which 46,869 met the cut off mark.
Based on the carrying capacity of each college and approved cut off mark, 24,422 candidates have been admitted, with Federal Government Girls’ College (FGGC) Bwari, Federal Government Girls’ College (FGGC) Owerri and Federal Government College (FGC) Enugu topping the list with a total of 400 students each, while Federal Science and Technical College (FSTC) Otukpo and Federal Government Girls’ College (FGGC) Tambuwal had the least number of 120 candidates each.
The resumption date for all Unity Schools is slated for September 19, 2016.
