 Admission Processing to OAU: What’s it going to Look like this Year?

One of the costliest mistakes any applicant or their parents can make is to assume that OAU has a fixed model for their admission processing. I don’t know much about other schools, but as much as I know, OAU does not and in fact cannot have a specific way to determine who and who get admitted and with what requirements; these change per admission year. There are events every  year that have direct effects on the processes of admission, the problems these effects always cause is that most applicants are not carried along on the changes they cause on the admission processes, which often make then lose the chance of getting admitted. For instance, the COVID-19 events have how they affected admission processes in 2020 and in 2021; I know that all the admission lists firstly compiled in 2020/2021 session were abandoned and they had to compile another list thereby affecting some applicants (five amongst my candidates were admitted on the initial lists but unfortunately the new lists didn’t carry their names, we had to process state schools for them afterwards). The long ASUU strike of 2022 also has how it affected admission processes in 2022. 2023 would definitely has its own peculiar case as well.

If there are schools at all where you can pass the screenings and just go relax at home waiting for admission, OAU is certainly not one of those schools. This is not to say the admission processes are not credible enough or merit-based, but don’t be too trusting in any government institution that you don’t assume there are always human forces moving special files around so that they can get special attentions; these things happen everywhere and on everything—OAU’s admission processes not exempted. OAU is a very competitive school, it’s at least 100,000 of applicants per year trying to get in and only about 10,000 to 15,000 of them get admitted eventually. The rest are either screened out by exams or screened out by lack of information, misinformation or inactions if they passed all the exams and have the departmental cut-off. This year’s admission would not be any less competitive. The highly competitive departments like Medicine and Surgery, Nursing, Pharmacy, Law, Accounting, and Computer Science would not be any less competitive too. In fact, it would be said again that what determines who gets what is determined by merit, but we all know this system is not that merit-based; there would be candidates who have all the scores and documents and should merit the admission but they would not get admitted, meanwhile there would be candidates who would score 10 to 20 marks below the cut-off and still somehow get admitted, that’s the power of slots (if you know, you know). I am not allowed to discuss this beyond this level. If you need more information or help on matters relating to this topic, you can reach on +2348139534187 or
