Prof Oloyede pointed out that some institutions were guilty of paving way for their preferred candidates against qualified ones by denying candidates their screening scores to disqualify them, fitting candidates into programmes before the summation of scores, and through some other unwholesome means. He urged those guilty to desist as the 2019 UTME and admission would be based of fairness, openess, and merit.
