A total of 1, 493, 603 candidates who registered for the 2011 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, will be sitting for the examination across the country today.
However, Vanguard gathered that due to acute shortage of spaces, only about 20 per cent of qualified candidates will be offered admission, into the about 117 universities in the country, owned by federal, states and private entities.
