Do you apply for Lagos State University 2012/2012 Admission? Then you must read this. This article was published on punch newspaper.

The number of candidates who are seeking admission into the Lagos State University, Ojo, (LASU) has reduced dramatically.
According to punch reporter, when a correspondent visited the lagos state university on Monday 18th June to oversee the Lasu 2012/2013 Post UTME Screening Test, about 3,000 candidates came for the post utme exam.

Also, the lasu post-UTME which used to hold for one week in previous years for all candidates seeking admission into the institution was conducted in just one single day, Monday 18th June 2012.

The number of candidates who used to participate in the examination in the last four years fluctuated between 15,000 and 20,000 candidates.
Students and candidates who spoke to punch newspaper correspondent ascribed the development to the hike in tuition fee which began at the beginning of the 2011/2012 academic session.

They (Students of Lasu) explained that the increased in the fees had scared away prospective students who could not afford to pay the huge tuition fees. (freebrowsinglink.com: Nigerian Education is no longer by choice, but rather by Cash. Nigeria Education is for the Rich)

A student of the Lagos State university, said the university community usually witnessed an increase in human and vehicular traffic whenever the post-UTME was conducted.
He continued, "The scanty number of students taking the exam stems from the astronomical increase in the tuition of the university. The campus marshals- the school’s security outfit-usually had hectic time controlling the crowd and traffic in previous years.

"As you can see the post utme exam is holding only today and the candidates’ turn out is low."
He said, "Last year about 5,000 people were offered undergraduate admission but due to the increase in tuition a little over 1,000 students accepted the offer.

"I foresaw that the situation would be like this because the fees are just beyond the reach of ordinary Nigerians. Imagine students paying N348,000 in a state-owned institution. The least paid by non-science based faculties is N190,000."

A candidate of LASU, miss Oluwatoyin Baiyewu, who is writing the post utme examination for the third time, expressed optimism that she might be offered admission this year because of the few number of applicants writing the exams.
Baiyewu said, "I wrote the post utme exams on Day Three of the exercise last year and the population was massive compared to what we have now. The increase in fees caused it because not everybody can afford to pay such an amount. It is ridiculously high".

Another post utme candidate, Ms Albert Temitope, said she was not aware that the school’s tuition had been increased before she made LASU her university of first choice.
A student, who was simply identified as Ade, said the reduction in the number of students seeking admission into the university begun during the beginning of the current session.
Attempts to communicate with official of lasu proves abortive.
Seriously guys if you are not from a very rich family, it is time to concentrate solely on your second choice.
