The University for Development Studies has debunked a claim that the Ghana-based establishment twice rejected one Seidu Gloria Wunsani.
It comes after it emerged online that Wunsani completed her secondary school education at the Tamale Senior High School in 2001, where she obtained 6As in the 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
What social media user Mumuni Yunus said
In a post by social media user Mumuni Yunus, it stated that Wunsani ''had since applied to study Medicine at the University for Development Studies, Tamale, on two occasions (last year and this year)''.

''However, luck evaded her as she failed to gain admission to the university on both occasions despite her stellar performance in the WASSCE,'' said Yunus in her Facebook post.
YEN.com.gh reported that Seidu Gloria Wunsani had applied twice to the university but was rejected as recounted by Mumuni Yunus. The report further said she applied to the university to accomplish her dream of becoming a doctor or aerospace engineer.
The University for Development Studies debunks claim
''[It] does not in any way represent the facts and state of affairs, especially regarding admissions into the UDS School of Medicine.''
The university disclosed that Seidu Gloria Wunsani applied to the UDS School of Medicine for admission for the 2021/2022 academic year with an aggregate of eight but could not be admitted.
''... she applied as an ''awaiting results'' applicant in 2001, a time that many of the other applicants who had already applied with their 2020 WASSCE results had gained aggregate six or better aggregate scores.
''In other words, other applicants with the same or better aggregate scores as Ms Seidu Gloria Wunsani could not be admitted to the UDS School of Medicine.''
The university further dismissed the claim that she was rejected twice, saying if the first time she applied was for the 2021/2022 academic year, the second time would be for the 2022/2023 academic year.
As of the time of the press release, the UDS School of Medicine had not made any admissions yet, said the university. ''Therefore, the claim that she had been rejected a second time is a lie''.
