He said, “So I think for this year we have about 69,828 applicants and again it is a good thing to note that there are more female applicants than male ones. Of the 69,828 applications, we have 36,855 female applicants and the balance of over 32,000 are males.

“And from the three we have visited we went to them unannounced to see what was and from the conduct we met there, it was going on very well. We are not looking at taking all the applicants but looking at taking the best out of them and there are standards that measure what you take and how you move it.”
