Senate of the University has approved that candidates seeking admission into the Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery (MB.BS) and Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) programmes through the Direct Entry mode must possess, at least, the Second Class Honours (Upper Division) degree in relevant Advanced Level subjects to be adjudged eligible for consideration.

The approval was given after Provost of the College, Professor Christie Mato, made an animated presentation on the Floor of Senate at its 429th Meeting which held last Wednesday.

The Provost stated that the proposal was based on the decision of the College Academic Board at its 221st Meeting held on Friday, October 14, 2016, which reviewed an earlier Senate decision on the exact mode of seeking Direct Entry admission into the University.

The approval further stipulated that prospective candidates must be admitted into the Second Year to enable them take compulsory MBBS courses at that level.

She further stated that Medical and Dental programmes in Nigerian universities usually ran for five years through the Direct Entry mode, while candidates admitted through the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination must complete a six-year programme to qualify as doctors or dentists.

Professor Mato further stated that indexing of MBBS/BDS students by the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria usually took place in their second year of study.
