In this applicants’ number, 46,087 chose OAU as their 1st choice, 672 chose OAU as 2nd choice. 1 and 62 applicants chose OAU as their 4th choice and 3rd choice respectively.

The study of the statistics by OAU Peeps News Agency also revealed the most sought after courses by these applicants. Leading the chart is Medicine and Surgery in the College of Health Sciences with 8,402 applicants.
