OAU Decides 2015: Faculty Of Sciences Results

Elections started very late in Faculty of Sciences as against the earlier announced time. BOOB was used as the polling unit as all the departments(Botany, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Zoology, Mathematics, Chemistry, Geology & Physics) in the faculty had to come down there to vote.
