We Can Help you Get a Reference Letter from OAU Lecturers [TAGS: OAU, REFERENCE, REFEREE, LECTURER]

We Can Help you Get a Reference Letter from OAU Lecturers

If you are trying to gain admission abroad (or in rare cases locally) and you need one or three lecturers from your school to reference you, you would know this is one of the hardest things to get done even when it’s as simple as the referee just responding to a mail sent to them by the requesting institution; more like lecturers always wait for this to punish old students for not creating a good relationship with them while they were in school or after they have left school. So if you are reading this and you have a younger one in school or just leaving school, advise them to keep in touch with their lecturers—especially their project supervisor, they would need these lecturers sooner or later. That’s just by the way, the point here is that we have some departments in OAU we can help you get your reference letter from. Give us a call on +2348139534187 or info@pec-ng.com.

OAU MBA Executive Graduates: Solution to the Huddles of Collecting their Certificates and Transcripts from the School [TAGS: OAU, MBA, PG, PGC, POSTGRADUATE COLLEGE, NAIRALAND, CERTIFICATE, TRANSCRIPT, COLLECTION, CLEARANCE]

OAU MBA Executive Graduates: Solution to the Huddles of Collecting their Certificates and Transcripts from the School

In OAU, executive programmes are at least 95% online, this means from the stage of applying for the programme to the stage of finishing the programme, the student might not need to go to the campus more than a couple of times. Besides most of the students in this demography are working class who wouldn’t have the time to leave work so they can be on OAU campus to do anything—which is why the online programmes were good for them in the first place. After finishing their programme, it is expected that this demography of people would have gotten even busier that they would not be able to come for their certificate and transcript, hence, the need for a third-party they can have on ground to do the needful for them. A lot of these people don’t even get to do their clearance after finishing their programme, and this is because up until the COVID-19 pandemic, the clearance just had to be done physically, the online version of it was just introduced in 2021 (which still doesn’t solve the problem for people who finished their programme before it was introduced).

It’s important to mention that if you finished your programme and didn’t do your clearance before leaving, OAU PG does a funny thing, they keep your NetQue page accumulating bills for you. This means if you come 5 years after you finished your programme, you are going to have to pay an accumulated bill; sometimes Access Cards accumulated to around 50, with each costing #1,500 or thereabouts. Imagine having to pay some #50,000 to #100,000 for accumulated Access Cards just because you want to do your clearance some years after you finished your programme. This is why a lot of people who did the OAU MBA Executive and a lot of PG students of other programmes just totally abandon the clearance unless they absolutely need it, this doesn’t make certificate and transcript collection any easier.

Where Pathfinders Edu Consultancy comes in is to help you do your clearance and collect your certificate and transcript from OAU with no stress from you. Based on our understanding that you are most probably busy and may not get to go to OAU campus to do these things, we make everything easy for you; we put all resources together and have your documents couriered to you easily. So no need to abandon your clearance and have NetQue continue accumulating bills for you, no need to abandon your certificate and your transcript with OAU—you would need them sooner or later. Give us a talk on +2348139534187 or info@pec-ng.com.

The Danger of Having a High Aggregate Score in OAU’s Post-UTME and not Getting Admitted [TAGS: OAU, NAIRALAND, ADMISSION, ADMISSION LIST, FIRST LIST, POSTUTME, POST JAMB, SECOND LIST, THIRD LIST, VC LIST, MERIT LIST, SUPLEMENTRY LIST]

The Danger of Having a High Aggregate Score in OAU’s Post-UTME and not Getting Admitted

Like many other highly competitive schools in Nigeria, OAU’s model for admissions changes every now and then to level up with events, so it’s okay to say OAU does not have a fixed system for determining who gets admitted and who doesn’t. Don’t get me wrong, the Post-UTME system of screening out thousands of applicants is a constant thing and it has proven itself effective over the years, so this is not what I’m talking about when I say OAU does not have a fixed system for determining who gets admitted and who doesn’t; what I mean is that after the Post-UTME has screened out thousands of applicants who couldn’t score the required average mark in the Post-UTME aggregate score to make them earn the “Eligible for Admission” comment, there are still thousands of candidates remaining who would still have to struggle to earn one admission from the mere 10,000 to 15,000 admission spots available in the school every admission session.

To put things in better perspectives, just assume over 100,000 candidates apply for OAU’s post-UTME, about half of them get the “Eligible for Admission” score and only about 15,000 of these eligible-for-admission applicants would be admitted eventually. Now for those who don’t know, this is when it should get clearer to you that having the “Eligible for Admission” doesn’t necessarily mean you have been admitted or will definitely be admitted, it only means you have passed another stage of the screening process. However, the good side of having the “Eligible for Admission” is that even if you don’t pass the next stage of screening—the departmental cut-off screening stage, with some long legs and other resources put in proper places, you may still be squeezed into one department somehow, meanwhile a person with “Not Eligible for Admission” cannot be considered for anything at all no matter how long their legs are. Now, this is where my position that OAU doesn’t have a fixed system for determining who gets admitted and who doesn’t comes in—the departmental cut-off causes a lot of imbalances and inconsistencies in the admission models adopted per admission session, and these create a good number of unfair situations for applicants.

A person who chooses Medicine and Surgery in their UTME and scores the aggregate score of 75% in the Post-UTME screening might end up not getting admitted at all if the cut-off of this department is above 75% while another person who scored 52% for an aggregate score would easily get admitted to other departments with lower cut-off; it just doesn’t look right that a person with 52% score gets admitted while a person with 75% score would have to go try again next year. I want to believe OAU knows that a person who is able to score as high as 75% in their Post-UTME screening has the good potential of performing well in the university, I know this because the school practises a good level of sentiments for OAU students in Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, Pharmacy and so on who are failing woefully in these departments, OAU doesn’t make these students have to drop out of school, they make sure they are able to easily transfer to other departments because the worst students in these departments would shine if they are taken to another department; a student getting 40/100 in Medicine and Surgery would definitely get 60/100 if  transferred to Economics. So by this, I know OAU is aware high aggregate score promises that the candidate would do well in school, so it is not okay that OAU lets these applicants have to go and try again next year or change their institution to another school.

I am suggesting that OAU sets a certain score line for automatic consideration for another department relating to your initial department should you not have the score that meets the initial department’s cut-off; like if an applicant who chose Medicine and Surgery has an aggregate score of 75% but the cut-off of Medicine and Surgery ends up being 85%, this means this applicant cannot get Medicine and Surgery, but they should automatically be offered admission to a relating department, it is then left to them to accept or reject the offer. No high-scoring applicant should be left stranded after looking forward for months believing their high score would get them something. The OAU’s admission board needs to look into these things.

Certificate Collection in OAU and UI Made Easy for People Far Away [TAGS: NAIRALAND, OAU, UI, CERTIFICATE, CERTIFICATE COLLECTION, CLEARANCE, MBA, PG, UNDERGRADUATE]

 Certificate Collection in OAU and UI Made Easy for People Far Away

The fact that OAU and UI don’t have their certificates ready for their graduands until after one or two years they graduated births the possibility that most alumni would not be around at all to collect their certificates when they are ready for collection; unless the alumna has no progress in their life for the one or two years; no one expects a person to graduate and not have gotten busy with life or gone far away after one or two years. The chances of not having the chance to go collect their certificates from their schools or being far away from the school get even higher when it comes to people who did postgraduate programmes like MBA, M.Sc./M.A., PhD.; these are mature people who will definitely not be able to make it down to their school to collect their certificates, this poses a problem for a lot of people needing their certificates.

Because Pathfinders Edu Consultancy (PEC) is in the business of making things easier, we have built a system of helping alumni of OAU and UI clear and collect their certificate to send it to their doorstep via courier or any other safe means of transporting it to them. So if you have been looking for how to easily get your certificate from either of OAU and UI without having to stress on anything, then PEC is here to do just that for you, just go ahead and fill the appropriate form for the programme you did and your year of graduation, make the payment stated for you and your certificate would be ready for courier in no time.
