University Of Ibadan Replies Criticism Over The High Number Of First Class Graduates (Must Read)

University of Ibadan (UI) Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Idowu Olayinka, says the school remains proud of its high-
flying graduates.
He said this at the opening of 2015/2016 convocation ceremonies, which began Monday in Ibadan, Oyo

State.

“I am aware that there has been strident public criticism of the large number of first class graduates from our

universities.

“We are exceedingly proud of all Ibadan graduates. We see this phenomenon from the strategic point of

view of input-process-output.

“The University of Ibadan has arguably the most competitive mechanism for undergraduate admissions in

the country.

“This has been attested to consistently by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, in which

Ibadan is the only university in the country ranked among the topmost 1,000 universities in the world,” the

VC said.

He noted that for the very first time in 69 years, UI produced its first graduate with a First Class honours

degree in History.

“We warmly congratulate Ozibo Ekele, who is graduating today with a Cumulative Grade Point Average of

6.6 out of a maximum of 7.0″, the VC said.

Ozibo Ekele of the Department of History, was one of the 186 students who earned First Class degrees.

Olayinka said 5,629 students graduated in various academic programmes from 12 faculties, including the

Distance Learning Centre at the convocation.

186 passed with first class honours, 1,538 finished with Second Class Upper, while 3,133 finished with Second Class Lower.

434 students finished with Third Class, while 81 others graduated with Pass degrees.

Breakdown of the graduating list showed that 3.5 per cent and 28.6 per cent finished with First Class and Second Class (Upper) honours, respectively.

In his valedictory speech on behalf of others, the overall best graduating student in Law, Tolulope Ogunmodede, attributed their successes to hard work and prayers.
