OAU Post-UTME Held Amidst School Closure

The Post-UTME for aspiring students of Obafemi Awolowo University for the 2014/2015 session has finally been held today as sheduled. The exam which drew over 20,000 persons comprising about 17,000 candidates and their guardians into the Campus went on without any hitch.

Many of the aspirants who took the screening test who spoke to our various correspondents on Campus express satisfaction over the conduct of the exercise. They said they are happy to have completed every exams prior to their admission into the school and they remain hopeful that resumption will be soon.

Notwithstanding, many of the candidates who spoke with us lament the toughness of the questions given to them. In her words, one Adebimpe said "the exam is too tough for somebody is just leaving Secondary school. I believe OAU sets her Post-JAMB to favour the Predegree candidates"

We were already informed late yesterday by the Director of Information & Strategy, National Secretariat of NANS, Comrade Sam Adegbola that the initially announced disruption of  the exercise will no longer take place.

Many of the Candidates of today's exercise may not resume as a bonafide Undergraduates of OAU until June, 2015, that been the earliest. This is due to the already crumbled academic Calendae of the University. Anytime earlier than that can only be achieved if the rumour of integrating two Academic Sessions, that is the 2013/2014 Seession into 2014/2015 Session.

At the moment, the students that were admitted for the 2013/2014 academic session are yet to receive a single lecture. Here we are in August, 2014.
