7 Unbelievable But Interesting Fact On How Students Applied For Universities in 2016

Many universities across Nigeria have begun accepting new students into their degree programs, and we have numbers to show how they applied.
We bet many students are glad they managed to make it on some merit list that will secure them a gown at the next matriculation of new students.
For example, of all the people who applied to get into the University of Ilorin in the last UME, only less than 8,000 will gain admission.

In a report released by Economic Confidential, we got to look into the all the universities in Nigeria how the pattern in which people applied to get into these schools. These are the things we noticed;

1. 1,452,739 people applied to get into Universities this year all over Nigeria.
That is almost the entire population of 1.849 million stong Gambia.

2. The most coveted school in Nigeria this is the University of Ilorin. 
Over 103 thousand people applied to get into Unilorin


3. More men applied to UNILORIN than all the people who applied to all 55 private universities. Combined.
At just 9,656, the number of people who applied to private universities was nowhere close to the number of men who applied to UNILORIN; 51,082. Makes sense, considering the economy is not private-uni friendly. This brings us to the next observation;
  
4. In the most of Southern Nigeria, more women applied to enter universities than men.
In the north, the numbers are not only the reverse, they are also disturbing.


5. Of all the 51 universities in the North, only two had more female applicants than male applicants
Except for Bingham University in Abuja and the University of Ilorin, more men applied to get into universities across the North. In some Northern universities, the margin is even wider than 100%. An example is the University of Maiduguri. 22,727 males applied to get in while only 10,182 females applied. At the Bayero University in Kano, 20,768 females applied alongside 43,452 males.
While this is not surprising, it is still disturbing.
This is a clear pointer to the low literacy rate among women in the North. A major factor contributing to this is early marriage and little regard placed on tertiary education.
In many cases, women are made to stop their education at a young age to become wives, sometimes too young that there are dire consequences.
Although it is also common among the educated class for young women of adult age still go ahead to marry and then go on with their education. A popular example that made the news was the marriage of the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido to an 18-year-old woman.
Moving on,
  
6. The most sought after private University in Nigeria is Covenant University. 
The university also has another reputation for producing some of the large number of First Class graduates yearly.

7. All the tertiary Institutions in Nigeria combined have a capacity to admit only 695,449 students this year.
Comparing this number to the number of people who wrote JAMB earlier this year, it's quite clear that a huge chunk of them are going to be warming their couches at home for the next one year.
