Post-UTME: OAU Has Not Decided


By Farombi Oluwaseun

Since the Federal Government, through the Ministry of Education lifted ban on Post-UTME usually organised by universities in Nigeria for admission seekers, some universities have started to release information on the schedule of a Post-UTME, as it were traditionally before last year.This has however raised anxiety amongst aspirants seeking admission into Obafemi Awolowo Universities; they are not sure whether the institution will also conduct Post-UTME or stick to the mode of admission it employed last year.

While responding to enquiry from OAU Peeps News Agency, the Registrar of the institution, Dotun Awoyemi simply responded "OAU will decide soon".

Also reacting to the rumour being peddled around that the Post UTME has been scheduled to hold September, the University Public Relations Officer, Abiodun Olarenwaju reiterated the fact that OAU is yet to decide on Post-UTME and thereby urged aspirants to wait till the University Senate meeting is conveyed wherein the issue of Post UTME will be deliberated and decided.

As Against the 120 cut off mark set by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) for university admission process this year, the University Vice Chancellor, Prof. Tope Ogunmodede made it known that the institution would not admit any candidate with 120 UTME score.“Traditionally, OAU has never admitted students who scored below 200 in the UTME. For us, we are sticking to 200," Ogunmodede affirmed. Only a few schools have also towed that hard line by maintaining 200 as their JAMB cut-off mark.

It is expected that the Post UTME will be deliberated upon in the next senate meeting which is scheduled to hold on September 27, as stated in the University Academic Calendar. However, an emergency Senate could be called to deliberate and take decision on the admission process any time from now.
