OAU Departmental Cutoff Marks for 2021/2022: This is to announce to the general public that the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) has release her 2021/2022 departmental cutoff marks to the general public.

This notice was made by the management of OAU via the university’s official website (www.oauiife.edu.ng) on the 19th April, 2021. In light of this notice, I strongly advise every aspirant who applied for admission in Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) to quickly go through the cutoff marks below.

OAU Departmental Cutoff Marks for law, medicine, accounting, economics, engineering, pharmacy, arts, sciences and other courses

2022/2023 OAU Departmental Cutoff Marks for law, medicine, accounting, economics, engineering, pharmacy, arts, sciences and other courses.

If you are one of those who do not know that OAU cutoff mark is all about; note that it is the score, stipulated by the management of OAU for offering admission into the different departments and faculties in the university.

Thus, if your score is not up to the stipulated cutoff for your desired course, it is most likely that you will not be offered admission into that faculty this year.

Kindly watch the video above for more explanation on what University and JAMB cutoff marks are. You will also see how OAU uses cutoff marks to offer admission to aspirants. 

Is OAU cutoff mark for 2022/2023 Academic Session out?

No! Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) has not released her 2022/2023 departmental cutoff for some courses this year. Candidates who chose the school as their choice of institution should, however, glance through the cutoff marks for last year listed below.

On a general note, candidates who applied for admission at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) are to keep in mind that; by virtue of the fact that OAU is a federal university, it is subject to the ongoing strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

Consequently, OAU may not be releasing her 2022/2023 departmental cutoff marks until the strike is over. Based on general opinion, it is likely that the university will be increasing its departmental cutoff marks after the strike action to that it can accommodate more students after the strike. Academic activities has been on hold for quite sometime now and those that were previously offered admission has not even graduated because of the strike.

This seems to be a good decision from the school.

JAMB cutoff mark for admission into the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU)

JAMB cutoff mark for OAU is 180. This means that before anyone will be offered admission through UTME in 2022, he/she must score at least 180 in JAMB examination.

Sometimes, before candidates are allowed to take OAU post UTME screening, they must show that they scored at least 180 in JAMB too.

Meanwhile, it is worthwhile to know that OAU is at the discretion to increase or decrease the cutoff mark given to it by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

How to calculate OAU aggregate score

In calculating your OAU aggregate, it is important to note that both JAMB UTME, OAU post UTME and O’level result must be considered together. O’level take just 10%, JAMB UTME takes 50% and Post UTME takes 40%. In total, everything is 100%. Now lets see how you can calculate your aggregate.

Step 1: Simply divide your Jamb score by 8

Step 2: Next, add it to your post UTME score.

Step 3: Now calculate your O’level result using the grading system below:

  • A1 – 2.0 points
  • B2 – 1.8 points
  • B3 – 1.6 points
  • C4 – 1.4 points
  • C5 – 1.2 points
  • C6 – 1.0 points

Note: This should be used to calculate the 5 subjects that are related to your desired course of study.

Step 4: Add the results in step 1, 2 and 3 above and that is your aggregate score.

Example: below is the calculation for a student who scored 280 in JAMB, 26 in OAU post UTME and had A, B2, B2, B3 and B3 in his O’level result.

Jamb score 280/8 = 35

Post UTME = 26

O’level = 2+1.8+1.8+1.6+1.6 = 8.8

His aggregate score is = 35+26+8.8 = 69.8

What to do if you didn’t meet up with the cutoff mark

First and foremost, you don’t have to panic if you didn’t meet the required cutoff mark above because that will not help at all. OAU usually release multiple admission list every year, and most times, factors like catchment area and Educational Less developed areas are put into consideration when offering admission.

So if you score slightly below the requirement, you might still be offered admission into the school (though not through the first admission list). Alternatively, you can consider changing your course or school to one that requires lesser cutoff mark.

OAU Admission Requirements for 2022/2023

While you are checking the departmental cutoff mark for your course, it is important to know that OAU has other requirements that must be met before they will offer admission to any aspirant. Below are the UTME requirements for admission in OAU:

  • Candidates must score at least 5 credits (Including English language and mathematics) before they will be offered admission.
  • If Post UTME examination is to hold, candidates must take part and must do very well in the examination.
  • Candidates must have attained the age of 16 to be offered admission into any faculty in OAU.
  • Candidates cannot use results of more than two sittings to apply for admission.

Must read:

By way of conclusion, i encourage those whose cutoff mark is far from the one stipulated by the university to quickly apply for a change of course/institution form immediately. On other hand, if your cutoff mark is above the cutoff mark or slightly below it, then just keep calm and pray. Any more questions on this topic should be directed to me via the comment session.
