Bauchi College Screens Applicants for Admission After WikkiTimes Investigation

Barely a month after a WikkiTimes investigation that exposed the Adamu Tafawa Balewa College of Education (COE) Kangere in Bauchi for failure to offer admission to applicants since 2022, the institution began screening the applicants, WikkiTimes can report. 

In 2022, the College advertised it will start offering degree programmes in affiliation with the Bayero University Kano (BUK). 

Over 1,000 prospective students applied for the undergraduate programmes most of whom were graduates of the College.

However, the Institution left applicants in a state of uncertainty and frustration when the programme failed to commence since then. 

Following WikkiTimes investigation, the College has now commenced screening process in preparation for the full start of academic activities for the degree programmes.

In a notice of invitation to the screening obtained by WikkiTimes, the COE invited prospective candidates who meet the UTME score requirement to participate in the screening exercise. 

“This is to inform all prospective candidates and the general public that Adamu Tafawa Balewa College of Education, Kangere, in affiliation with Bayero University Kano, will start its screening exercise for the 2023/2024 POST-UTME.

“All prospective and interested candidates with a UTME score of 180 and above are informed that the online screening exercise will be open from June 3 to June 17, 2024. Applicants should follow the provided guidelines for proper information upload required by the online screening system. 

“Only candidates who applied through JAMB for UTME admissions and chose Bayero University as their first choice are eligible for the screening. Those whose first choice is not Bayero University Kano can change their institution at a JAMB office or any CBT center,” said the notice.

An applicant, Adamu Ibrahim, confirmed to WikkiTimes that the screening process began, stating, “Yes, they have started the screening within the week and it is still ongoing. I attended it yesterday (Saturday).”

A source from the Institution who is privy of the matter but does not have the authority to talk to the press told WikkiTimes that academic activities would commence immediately after the screening process is completed.
