purposes of information only, please be reminded that states recognized as

educationally less developed include: Adamawa, Bauchi, Bayelsa, Benue,

Borno, Cross River, Ebonyi, Gombe, Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Kastina, Kebbi,

Kogi, Kwara, Nasarawa, Niger, Plateau, Rivers, Sokoto, Taraba, Yobe and

(e) Physically challenged candidates with acceptable minimum UTME (JAMB) scores

are to be accorded preferential admissions privileges even without evidence of

Subject to the prevailing situation, admission of candidates based on the 5,117

NUC approved quota for EBSU in 2016/2017 admission session shall be guided

by the following criteria.

(a) Merit/Locality 80% (3684 slots) subdivided into:

(i) General Merit 40% (1842 slots)

(ii) Catchment//Locality 40% (1842 slots)

(b) Direct Entry candidates 10%(512 slots)

(c) Educationally less developed Local Government (ELDLG) is 20% (921

slots). Ebonyi State is among the Educationally less developed states in

Nigeria. Therefore, only the three LAGs at the three zonal headquarters are

for now regarded as educationally developed. Thus: Abakaliki, Ezza South and

Afikpo North stand as Educationally developed.

The other ten Local Government Areas regarded as ELDLG for 2016/2017

admissions include: Ebonyi, Ivo, Ezza North, Ishielu, Afikpo South, Ohaukwu,

Izzi, Ikwo, Ohaozara and Onicha.

N/B: Please, note that in keeping with the Joint Admissions and

Matriculation Board (JAMB) recent policy on admissions, which of course

insists that conditions as listed in 5 above must be strictly adhered to, the

University is constrained not to adopt her usual formular of allocating

some admission percentages to stakeholders/government interest. Your

usual understanding in line with the foregoing is highly solicited as we try to

keep to extant policies as well as keep fate with our corporate social

responsibilities, please.


The 5,117 quota allotted to EBSU for 2016/2017 session shall be distributed to

Faculties and Departments.
