“Unfortunately, our carrying capacity cannot absorb that number, as we do not have more than 4000 admission quota.

“This admission quota is not done by the university, but it is from the National Universities Commission (NUC) which determined admission quota of universities.

“This is based on the aggregation of facilities, infrastructure such as classrooms, quality of library and the quality of staffing.

“The university will be queried if we go beyond the admission quota, so we seek for your understanding, candidates and everybody’s understanding in this area.

“Certainly, not every candidate will get the admission, no matter how we try, “he said.
