The Pre-degree Unit of Federal University Oye-Ekiti has just conducted the second semester examination for its students for the 2014/2015 academic session. The examination which started with mock or demo exercises on Tuesday 30th June, 2015 commenced fully on 2nd July, 2015 and lasted two days.
The students, numbering one hundred and seventy three (173), were split into two batches according to their faculties. According to the Administrative Secretary of Pre-Degree, Mr. Ayodele Fatuase, faculties of Agriculture, Engineering and Sciences had a total number of ninety nine (99) students who sat for the exam on 2nd July while Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences had seventy four (74).
Mr. Fatuase further disclosed that a prerequisite for admission is that a student would have scored 180 and above in JAMB and must have sat for first and second semester exams. Besides, candidates that went through the pre-degree programme must possess necessary entry requirements into the university as required by Joint Admission and Matriculation Board Examination (JAMB).
