Transcripts Order in OAU 2: The Problems and the Possible Solutions (TAGS: oau transcripts order request etx wes ece evaluation iqas nairaland))


Transcripts Order in OAU 2: The Problems and the Possible Solutions 
With no beating around, I’ll like to start highlighting why transcripts services are awful in OAU, and it is majorly—first of all—because OAU decided to hand over totally their transcripts services to ETX—a startup company for that matter. Not that it is bad to try out a startup company and help them grow, it only becomes bad when: one, OAU hands the transcripts services over to the company 100%; and two, the company refuses to leave the status of a startup company after five years of handling such big project.
OAU’s alumni base gets bigger and bigger every year, and the need for their transcripts gets even bigger too—especially now that everyone wants to travel to Canada and needs their transcripts for processing such thing. But unfortunately, ETX is not efficient enough to meet the needs of the thousands of OAU alumni who request for their transcripts per year. Thereby creating problems upon problems for the alumni who need their transcripts for a thing or two. All I'm saying here is, it is totally reasonable that OAU tries to take their transcripts to the internet, and also totally unreasonable that they removed themselves totally from every transcripts request services. OAU is a larger school than that, and there are even schools will lesser alumni base than OAU that still deal transcripts individually with their alumni, even when thy have also handed the service to an online transcripts delivery company.
Though the OAU management is corrupt, as it is most likely that some people in the management are collecting special bribes from ETX to keep them in the partnership with OAU, because I believe there is no way OAU as a school does not know what ETX has been putting their alumni through in getting their transcripts. However, there still can be solutions to thes. Transcripts order should be optional: you may order on ETX if you want to (which will favour people who can’t come down to Ife or who don’t want to); or come down to the school to request for your transcripts directly from OAU if that’s how you want it. This would reduce the clients for ETX and get them to treat every other client they have rightly and also improve on their services.

On the part of ETX, their major problem is that they have zero follow-up strategies, almost zero feedback system and customer care. When a client orders for their transcripts on ETX, and unfortunately there is any problem about the processing of the transcripts or about delivering the transcripts, ETX just normally leaves the case and forgets about it, without even getting back to the client who ordered for the transcripts to update them on the status of their transcripts order. The client who needs their transcripts would keep waiting for months and months for their transcripts to get to where they need them until they miss what they need the transcripts for. Even when the client tries to call the customer care, they don’t answer calls, and when they do, the respondents are never ever helpful! The solution to this is simple too, ETX need to have a customer care personnel that actually understand the management of OAU and can even before contacting the management give answers to questions from their clients. ETX needs to not just collect order money and not make sure the orders are fulfilled by all means, to this they will have to have a follow up team that will always go about solving the problems any client’s transcripts may be having that may end up sabotaging the delivery of their transcripts instead of just leaving the order where it has problems to not get back to it again. ETX need to improve on their feedback system, a client who orders for their transcripts online need to be getting alerts at good intervals on the level their transcripts order has gotten and information on what's wrong with their order when something goes wrong (that one they put on their web about your order is not even informative enough!). And to add to this, why must a normal transcript order take several weeks or months to be delivered even when the transcripts have no problem at all? I believe there are ways the bureaucracy could be reduced so that all paper works about every normal order could be done in maximum 2 days, and the transcripts can be on their way to their owner by the 3rd or 4th day. The completion of a transcript order should not take more than one week in the worst case! ETX, please up your game!

Untold things About OAU’s Departmental Cutoffs and the Admission Lists (Tags: google.com, nairaland, oau, cutoff, admission list, postutme, post-utme, aspirants, cut off mark, Obafemi awolowo university)


Untold things About OAU’s Departmental Cutoffs and the Admission Lists
Writing and failing the UTME is bad, passing the UTME only to end up failing OAU post-UTME is worse, but passing OAU post-UTME only to find yourself behind the departmental cutoff when that of your aspiring department is released is the worst. But you know what else is worse even than not meeting the departmental cutoff? Seeing another aspirant of the same department as you who is even far below the departmental cutoff than you gaining admission to that department is the worst of them all, it’s super-depressing.
If there is anything at all I remember very well about me scoring just 2 or 3marks below the cutoff in my three sessions of writing the UTME and not gaining admission, it will be the part when I saw aspirants having lesser score than I did gaining the admission anyways like they deserved it better than me. I got depressed every time this happened, then I had the conviction—which I just recently changed—that that cutoff thing is the biggest scam in OAU’s admission processing, judging by how someone with a lesser score gets to gain the admission while you don’t, even when the two of you are below the cutoff. But now, I have a better understanding of how the cutoff works, and I want to share it.
Runsmen, the “eligible” OAU aspirants and the parents who have children in this category, there is nothing we look forward to right now more than the OAU departmental cutoffs. On my own path as a runsman, I know why I await the cutoffs earnestly, but that is not why I’m making this article. I’m making this article to explain the reason why a person would lose their admission because they are some marks below their aspired departmental cutoff but another person with a lesser score would gain the admission anyways. This is it, there is a reason why OAU releases admission list thrice; I will mention each of the three lists below and tell you what you have to know about it.
(write-up continues after picture break)

1. The Merit List (a.k.a First List): this list is exclusive only to the candidates who have in all ramifications met every requirement to be offered admission to their aspired departments, just as requested by the department and the university. That is, if the cutoff for Economics is 65% such candidates have scored at least 65% or have the score and areas/states that fit for the special cases like the catchment areas and ELDS cutoffs. Other than these conditions, you cannot be admitted on merit. The pre-degree students use to be on this list too, but not the direct entry students (DE). The DE students only come on the subsequent lists after the merit list.
2. The Second List: this list comes after the merit list, it is on this list the DE candidates see their names, and also candidates who didn’t meet the meriting cutoff to their aspired departments but because they know who they should know and what should be done for them has been done, they gain the admission anyways (either to their aspired department or to a compensating department). Most of the times, only one thing is the rule here: just make sure “Eligible for Admission” is written on your slip, how low your score is below your original or compensating department will not matter; you know people, so it’s okay. This is where I get my saying from that you either merit OAU’s admission or get it anyways.
3. The Third List (a.k.a Supplementary List or VC List): this list is the most misunderstood list! Everyone just thinks the list is their right. But I’m stating this emphatically, the third list is not your right, it’s the VC’s. To get on this list, you have to know the VC or know someone who knows the VC, in another sense, the VC has to know you or know someone who knows you; that’s how you get on the VC list. This supplementary list is the shortest of all the lists, and it comes to effect because there will always be people who are offered admission on the first and second list but will not accept the admission based on some reasons ranging from unavailability of funds, health issues, or another opportunity opened elsewhere. These names will be replaced with other people’s name, and most of the times, this list is released close to the matriculation or just after the matriculation.
Now that you know how the OAU cutoff and admission lists work, I hope you have learnt that cutoff or no cutoff, if you did what you have to do right and in time, you will still gain your admission; and also, by now, you know on which list to expect your name.


Waiting on OAU’s Admission Lists (TAGS: OAU, OBAFEMI AWOLOWO UNIVERSITY, ADMISSION LIST, NAIRALAND,, GOOGLE, FIRST BATCH, JAMB, UTME, DE, POSTUTME, ADMISSION, CAPS, IFE)


Waiting on OAU’s Admission Lists
As of today, OAU has to be the only Nigerian tertiary institution left yet to release any admission list at all, and that’s what we are known for—taking our time on everything. However, this could be a bad thing as much as it could be a good thing, as taking official things slow could mean perfection is what we are shooting for, or it’s just that our staffs aren’t swift about their jobs. But whatever the case is, if OAU is making you wait for the admission list, it’s only wise that you know why you are waiting and how you should be waiting. I cannot help you know why you are waiting—it’s in your decision you made by choosing OAU and working hard to pass all the screenings you have passed, but I could help you know how to wait, and that’s what I’m up to right about now.
As the UTME and our tertiary institutions are structured now, it is almost impossible for an admission seeker to be considered for admission by other schools on their choices of institution if their first choice of school doesn’t offer them admission. It’s more or less like you are choosing just one school and if that one school doesn’t admit you, then you will have to go do Change of Institution to put another school on your first choice of school so you could stand a chance of being screened and considered for admission by the newly chosen school. But in this case when all the schools open and close their registration for Post-UTME/screening and close it almost at the same time, it means if you failed the Post-UTME of one school or get rejected for admission by the school, you may find it difficult to find any school left to register for their Post-UTME/screening. Then in the case of OAU that likes to conduct their Post-UTME later than most schools, and also like to release their admission lists far later than most schools, it means if OAU doesn’t admit you, your next and only option may have to be the next UTME. So as you are waiting on OAU to release their admission lists, it must be at least one of:
1. you are very certain you will be admitted, because you beat either of the merit score, catchment score or the ELDS score, and you have done perfectly all you should do that no faults could be found about your application. But even at this level of qualification and perfection, I must tell you that you still need MORE to get courses in the Health Sciences, Law, and courses like Accounting and Economics;
2. your runsman or admission helper has assured you of an admission—even when you do not beat the cutoff, and you trust their words; or
3. You have made your decision to wait on OAU for as long as it takes, and if (God forbids) you are not offered an admission, to give up or just write UTME again next year is what you are doing.
It is not possible that you are waiting on OAU’s admission lists and how you are waiting is not at least one of the three mentioned above. But I must tell you that the most dangerous of the three ways candidates wait for OAU’s admission list is the second on the list, because apart from the fact that you have to really trust your runsman or admission helper to have decided to wait on OAU based on these people’s words and actions to help you gain the admission even when you do not have the cutoff score, you have also chosen to put your chances to write the next UTME on the line. This is what I mean, UTME registrations begin early nowadays, in fact the one for 2020 had already started, even when OAU is yet to release any admission list, it means by the time the Third List is released, registration for next year’s Post-UTME may have closed. You see what I mean?
Remember, if you do not have any of the merit score, catchment score or ELDS score, it means your name cannot come out with the First List, and that’s because the First List is the Merit List, and only the ones who have either of these scores mentioned above merited the admission, everyone else will always have to wait for the Second List and Third List. It’s still safe to wait on the Second List without trying to register for another UTME already, but very very unsafe to wait for the Third List without haven’t register for the next UTME. That is because: one, the Third List is a very very slim list; and two, it comes out much later—sometimes after the matriculation of the ones admitted on the First and Second Lists. So I advise you, when the First and Second Lists are all out and your name is not on them, please register for another UTME already as you wait on the Third List. I wish you all the best.

Transcripts Order in OAU 1: How OAU and ETX are Getting it Wrong (TAGS: oau transcripts etx wes ece evaluation iqas nairaland)


Transcripts Order in OAU 1: How OAU and ETX are Getting it Wrong
After about five years of working somewhere in between OAU and ETX in solving alumni’s transcripts order issues and making a clean living from it, I have over these years learnt what OAU and ETX are jointly doing wrongly to make transcripts transactions frustrating and opportunity-depriving for the alumni of the school who need their transcripts to move forward either academically, occupationally, in their career or in life generally. OAU and ETX really need to be given a blunt feedback about their transcripts services, I will try to do that with this write-up, and I sincerely wish this one gets to someone in the management of any or both of the managements of the two organizations.
Let me—for those who don’t know this—state that OAU stopped transacting transcripts directly with individuals about 5 years ago, anyone who goes to the senate to request for their transcripts now will be told this (no matter whom you are meeting): “go and order for it on ETX”. The school has handed everything about transcripts requests to a startup company called ETX. ETX is an online transcripts delivery service that was meant to ease the order and delivery of transcripts to anywhere in the world, this was supposed to be so easy that the alumni shouldn’t need to come down to Ife to get their transcripts. You just have to give your details as a student, state where you need the transcripts, pay for the service, and wait to get notifications that your transcripts has gotten to where you said you need them. But unfortunately, the reverse has been the case since ETX started handling OAU’s transcripts services. Alumni will order, wait, wait and wait, after months of waiting and not getting their transcripts, they will eventually have to come down to Ife only to learn that ETX just collected their order money, encountered a little problem in the processing of their transcripts and abandoned the file—without even giving any report to the client on why they won’t be getting their transcripts they have ordered and paid for. Many people lose opportunities to this every year! OAU doesn’t care about this, ETX too either don't want to improve on their services or/and not even trying to know how to improve on their services.
I can’t deny that this problem is why I—as an entrepreneur—get to make profits from solving such problems, but that doesn’t mean I still don’t hope OAU and ETX do something to get better on this.

Necessary Information for OAU PG Applicants (TAGS: OAU, MASTERS, PGD, MSC, PHD, FORM, POSTGRADUATE, NAIRALAND)


Necessary Information for OAU PG Applicants
I have to hint you that OAU’s PG College—because they don’t admit so many people to their programmes—is a very unpopular college of all the postgraduate colleges in Nigeria. I say this to mean you can barely hear anyone talking about the College or their programmes anywhere or having the right information you need about the College and their programmes. Unfortunately, the PG College and OAU as a whole also contribute to how the OAU PG aspirants who want to apply to OAU don’t get informed about anything concerning the application and the processes, the College and OAU as institutions have near-zero interest in dispensing information to the public about anything, or maybe they don’t know how to best do it in this 21st century. This makes it the job of the OAU bloggers to publicize every possible needed information about OAU, their PG College and their PG programmes. And funny enough, because all other OAU bloggers are currently undergraduate students who have little or no idea what the PG College is about and how their programmes go, it becomes an obligation for me—the only OAU blogger who is conversant with the PG College and their programmes—to always update the public on anything they need to know about the college and their programmes. To confirm I am still the only blogger who writes about OAU’s PG College and their programmes is when you typed anything about OAU’s PG programmes in the Google search engine and everything it brought to you are things I wrote about the college and their programmes at different times of every year since 2007.

I say that not to create any negative impression about the college or anything, but to pre-inform you that you may find it difficult to get any other information you need about OAU’s PG programmes from anywhere else than here. So stick to us to remain informed about OAU, OAU’s PG College and their programmes. And if there is anything you need my service for from the buying of the form to the stage of admission, don’t hesitate to contact me on 0813953487. You will be informed rightly and everything will be coordinated meticulously for you. I wish you the best of luck as you begin processing your admission to the PG College.

PS: you must know that in your PG admission processing, your transcript is almost the most important thing of all that determine whether you will be admitted or not, and I can give you one zillion factors right now that could cause your transcript to not get to the PG College before the admission board sits to offer admissions. But then, the solution to the factors is what I'm here for, not really the factors. I’ll be closing this note with a link to an article you have to read to avoid letting your transcript deprive you of your admission you deserve; click here to read it.

OAU Postgraduate Admission Form for 2019/2020 Harmattan Semester On Sale Now (Tags: Nairaland, OAU, Obafemi Awolowo University, PG, Admission, form)


OAU Postgraduate Admission Form  for 2019/2020 Harmattan Semester On Sale Now
You find yourself on this page probably because you clicked on the link I sent to you as one of those people who have—at some points—discussed with me about OAU PG form and asked me to alert them when the form is on sale, or because you googled about OAU PG form and it brought this link to you; you clicked on the link and here you are. Now that you are here, let me inform you categorically that the OAU PG form for the 2019/2020 Harmattan Semester is out finally, and it will be on sale till 4st November, 2017 (for most of the departments). Now read every other thing you are about to read on here with great care because they are the information you will not get anywhere online—not even on OAU’s website., and because the PG students are never that much, it is always very difficult to find people online talking about anything that has to do with OAU PG. I guess that’s why I still have something doing, since I happen to be the only OAU-based blogger who blogs about the PG college (not finding any recent thing on any website about OAU’s PG programme should be enough to convince you of that).
If you are planning to buy the form, know first of all that you can pay for the form only in two ways: first being through your bank cards and the other by purchasing the NetQue cards relevant to such payment at Polaris Bank OAU Campus Branch. The price of the form ranges from #15,000 to #20,000 depending on the kind of programme you are applying for, and some extra charges of lesser than #1,000 may be added to your payment whether you are paying online or using the NetQue cards. Everything is easy to do at this stage and should not give you any problem. However, my services may be useful to you should you need someone to help you purchase the NetQue cards and have the PINs sent to you. I could also help you fill the form here and submit the necessary documents to the appropriate offices and in fact monitor the processes for you till you are offered admission. Rest assured everything will be done meticulously.
Also, most applicants focus on wanting to obtain the form but don’t prepare on ordering their transcripts as early as the form is purchased, and I must tell you, transcript issues make so many people lose their PG admission per session, just because they do not understand how seriously OAU takes the transcripts in giving any admission. No matter how qualified-for-the-admission you are, if your transcripts are not delivered before the admission board sits to decide on the admission or if they are delivered incompletely, you will certainly not be admitted! So as you are planning to get the form now, kindly be planning on getting your transcripts too. If you need any help on how to order for your transcripts, or you want to fast-track the delivery of your transcripts, or you want me to help you check if all your documents have been delivered to the appropriate offices or you want me to let you do the delivery, you can always call me for any of these.
I want to keep the rest of the information for when you contact me, so it won't be like I have given you all the info you need that you don’t even need to contact me anymore (na wetin I go dey chop if you no contact me na?). So, apart from everything I just told, if there is anything else you want to know about OAU PG admission, or anything you need to get done; I'm your man; I’ll do it as though you were the one doing your own thing. Contact me 08139534187.

The Commonest Admission-Depriving Mistakes Jambites Make (TAGS: JAMB UTME REGISTRATION FORM NAIRALAND GOOGLE OAU CANDIDATE UME EXAM DE DIRECT ENTRY COACHING OAU IFE)


The Commonest Admission-Depriving Mistakes Jambites Make
Now that the registration for the 2020/2021 admission session UTME is on, I feel the need to publish this article to warn applicants of the likely mistakes they could make—at the level of registering for the exam—that would deny them of their admission even when they have gotten all it takes to get the admission. Not that many of them who even come across such write-up as this would even bother to read it. I mean, a student that doesn’t care about studying the JAMB brochure before registering for their UTME—even when they are repeatedly asked to study the brochure before going on with the registration, what are the chances that such student would want to read a whole write-up that’s meant to warn them of what their negligence and ignorance may cost them? Being in the educational consultancy business for a while has exposed me to different kinds of applicants who lose admission based on one or two mistakes they made while registering for the exam, and the kinds of mistakes they make. I will be talking about the commonest of them after this advert break...

Not Studying the Brochure: Most UTME applicants don’t study the brochure before going to the computer centre to register for the exam, they just decide these are the schools I like, these are the courses I like, these are the O/Level subjects I feel like using and these are the subjects I like to write in my UTME, and many at times, this negligence gets them into some admission trouble. Every school have how they offer admission to each of their courses and the kind of students they want to take in for each course, they have the subjects they expect you to have passed in your O/Levels and the subjects they need you to write in the UTME to be qualified for admission. And in fact, these expectations and requirements are not constant; they may change at any time. Because you used to know OAU for instance doesn’t accept Commerce in place of Government or Economics in the UTME combinations to study in the Faculty of Administration doesn’t mean things couldn’t have changed yesterday; things may change and then OAU now accepts Commerce and Economics. You just have to study the brochure before filling the form!
Confusing the Computer Person for an Education Consultant: Applicants by default believe the guy they go to at the computer centres to register for the exam knows everything about the school they are trying to apply to and about the course they desire, so they just leave the computer guy to everything that most of them end up not even knowing the email and/or password the computer guy used to create their UTME form. I must emphasize this, the computer centre guys mostly are not there to correct you on anything, they are just there to help you fill in the things you have decided to fill in your form, and many of them who even act like they know what you should fill in the form don’t even know the right thing at all. So you need to consult an education consultant before filling that form. An education consultant is in the best position to know everything about every school, or at least be able to get valid information on the things they don’t know. I will say this again, consult an educational consultant before registering for your UTME. Wrong entries will not deny you of your well-deserved admission o.
Not Paying Attention to Anything During Registration: Like I said earlier on, most applicant don’t really pay attention when the filling of their form is going on, they just nod their head and provide answers to the questions they are asked. I know this because most applicants don’t even get to know the email address used to register their UTME until it’s time to print the exam slip, and because the printing of the exam slip doesn’t require inserting their password on the JAMB portal, most of them don’t know they password until they need to do some Data Correction (Change of Institution, Change of Course and the likes) or something like that on their portal. We go through so much at these two times and when it’s time to register for the Post-UTME and their password is needed. We are always having to go through hell in recovering their password. And according to my personal survey on 2017, 2018 and 2019 UTME candidates, over 90% of candidates (of all these years put together) who have problems recovering their password end up not gaining admission to their desired school or course. You know why, when it comes to admission, not paying attention to your own stuff means you are careless, and most schools’ screening are programmed to screen out careless people too. Carelessness has a snowball effect, if you could be careless about your UTME registration, you would be careless about several other things and they will all come together in the end to deny you of your admission.
If the foundation of a house is already bad, the whole building is going to end up bad. If the registration of your UTME is bad, no matter how good everything else turns out, that foundation will always have its own definition of how good your building stans. Don’t be a careless applicant, don’t be an ignorant applicant, contact an education consultant, do your part in the exam and do it to your best capacity; you will have yourself to appreciate for it. I wish you well.

NB: if you have chosen OAU as your choice of school and you want to come to Ife to take coaching in preparation for the UTME, we’ve got you covered. Our tutorial centre is the best in town and our hostel facilities are conducive and comfortable too. Pictures speak…

OAU Admission, After the Cut Offs, Then What? (Tags: OAU, Nairaland, OAU Peeps, Admission, Cut off, Merit List, First List, UTME, Post-UTME, Screening)


OAU Admission, After the Cut Offs, Then What?
We’ve waited impatiently for the OAU departmental cut offs; they came at last and here we are again—all of us consultants and applicants—waiting anxiously for the first list. To some people, the admission list is only a list coming, to some other people, it’s much more than just a list. For instances, to the applicants who is slow or indifferent to doing a thing about enhancing their admission chances, it’s most likely to be a disappointing list—especially if they have not scored up to the cut off required of them by their aspired department. To the applicants who is smart enough to understand that gaining admission into OAU—especially to the highly competitive departments—is much more about who you know and the chances you take than it is about what you scored, it’s most likely going to be the list that’ll put their widest smile on their faces and show them the way to joining the ever-conscious-ever-articulate OAU students. To many of us consultants who have been paid for admission processing and “runs”, the list is either going to be the evidence of a job done completely or job done incompletely. But to us at PEC, the list is surely and yet again going to be another prove of integrity and the show of long-time experience in the business of admission facilitation. So, it’s not just the applicants waiting for the first list now, we all are awaiting it seriously. But now that the cut offs have been released and we are waiting for the first list to be released too (which will be sooner), what should an applicant be doing just to make sure their chances of being admitted get higher and remain so? I'm about to do justice to that.
Year in year out, I always tell my candidates to not—because they have scored up to or more than the cut off required of them by their aspired departments—relent on their admission processing or become negligent. Hyping apart now, the moment you chose OAU in the UTME form, the moment everything that has to do with relenting and negligence in your life should divorce with you; because seriously, relenting and negligence are the major reasons why most OAU applicants don’t get admitted—even when they deserve it so much. Now, as an applicant, what should you be doing as you await the first list? Simple, don’t let your runs-person rest! Text and call them every now and then to show them how desperate you are. I know why I'm saying this. There are "runs" people in OAU who re-sell the slot they have sold to you to another person because the second bidder offered the highest price (this happens so much in the cases of applicants going to the highly competitive departments like Medicine, Nursing, Med. Rehab., Accounting and Economics). Though that does not mean they wouldn’t give the lowest bidder another slot, but it won't be the slot that will give them admission to their course of choice. I say this because I know, I’ve been doing this job since 2007, so you can be sure whatever I tell you on this is from experience.
Let me take advantage of this article to tell applicants who are still waiting for the first list before they start their runs that—should they not be admitted into OAU this session—they'll certainly be the cause of themselves losing the admission, not OAU. For Heaven’s sake admission processing and "runs" always start immediately after the release of the Post-UTME result (or even before it sef); so, waiting till the cut offs are released before you start making moves is the worst kind of procrastination; because by the time the cut offs are released? It’s always difficult to find a runs-man who still has a slot they have not used. Even the professors and high level staffs who own the slots would have exhausted their slots. So, if you are yet to do a thing about your admission processing, it’s almost getting too late now! If you make the move right now you can still be lucky enough to be squeezed in somehow—if you can afford it. But when the first list is out before you start making a move, your chance of getting a slot is almost zero. By this, I'm telling you to be wise, fast and smart enough to take advantage of any opportunity that promises to increase your chances of being admitted. You have to be desperate and more risk-taking about your admission "runs" to be admitted to OAU—even if you have the cut off score. OAU is much more competitive than you can ever imagine. It’s always about 100,000 applicants every year and the number that’ll be admitted has—since 2006—always been between 5000 and 11000 (the maximum number OAU has ever admitted in a session). That’s a very tiny portion of the applicants. So you should know by this that it takes much more than your score to be among the overly small number of applicants that’ll be admitted out of the so-much applicants. Now, if you are thinking of making any move, make it now before it is too late. Make a call now!

OAU Departmental Cutoffs for 2019/2020 Session
Could you believe I spent the whole of last week looking everywhere for the real OAU departmental cut offs? Yea, I couldn’t believe it either, that I’d have so many candidates depending on me for the right information on what’s happening about their admission processing, and I’ll have no idea what to give them as the truth. I have never been that blind about anything happening on OAU campus before—never ever. I guess a blogger could end up needing information too sometimes. Well, I pulled some strings and thank God I ended up having the true information that I need. I have the true OAU departmental cut off now, and I'm sharing it immediately.
I had to add this to this article tho, because I've been getting calls concerning this. For as many of you who applied for the highly competitive courses like Medicine, Nursing, Med. Rehab., Pharmacy, Economics and Accounting, and you are already relaxing because you scored higher than the departmental cut off in the Post-UTME screening; I'm enjoining you now to get up from your relaxation and start doing what you have to do now if you don't want to lose your admission even with the high score you have. Your high score does not guarantee your admission to these departments o, you will have to shine your eyes, open your ears, and do something not many people will know you did. Na the truth I just yarn you so. Make good use of it. The cutoffs come after this picture break.
