OAU Cut-Off Mark for All Courses 2024/2025: Hello there! Are you searching for the Obafemi Awolowo University’s cut-off marks for the 2024/2025 academic session, both general and departmental? Great news, you’re in the right place!  

OAU Cut-Off Mark for All Courses

When it comes to higher education, the aim isn’t just to meet the cut-off; it’s to beat it. This is especially true if you’re planning to attend Obafemi Awolowo University, a school renowned for its academic rigour.

See the cut-off mark as your starting point, not your end goal. Meeting it is just the basic requirement; exceeding it shows you’re up for the academic rigours ahead and gives you an edge over other applicants. OAU looks for highly intelligent students, not just students who do the bare minimum.

In this post, we’ll talk about why it’s crucial to aim higher than just the cut-off and give you all the info on the general and departmental cut-off marks.

Let’s dive right in! Ever heard of the Quota System? No? Alright, let me break it down for you because it’s crucial to understand why you need to go above and beyond, not just meet the cut-off.

What is the Quota System?

The quota system is a policy in Nigerian universities that regulates the number of students admitted annually and into each department. 

Why Exceed the Requirements?

Here’s the thing: aim to go beyond the basic requirements for your desired course. For instance, if you need at least five credit passes in your O-levels, aim for distinctions. 

The same goes for the cut-off mark. If it’s 200 for your course, aim for something like 230 or higher. Now you might wonder, “Why aim higher?”. Well, let’s say your department can only admit 200 students based on merit, and 2000 candidates applied.

If you scored exactly 200, but 500 others scored 230 or more, you’ll likely be left out. That’s how the quota system works.

I hope you understand this!

Before we move on to the OAU cut-off mark for 2024/2025, I would like to explain these two things (the general cut-off mark and departmental cut-off mark, as aspirants do get them confused with each other.

OAU General Cut-Off Mark 2024/2025

This is the cut-off mark a school considers for admission. If your score falls below a school cut-off mark, you won’t be able to take their Post-UTME, which implies you won’t be admitted into that school.

For example, if OAU’s general cut-off mark is 200, you will be unable to register for their screening exercise/post utme even if your score is 199.

Each school is free to choose its cut-off mark. They must not, however, adopt a cut-off mark that is lower than the JAMB minimum.

OAU Departmental Cut-off Mark 2024/2025

The departmental cut-off mark is the minimum score required for admission to a school’s course or department. For example, OAU has a general cut-off mark of 200, but separate cut-off marks of 252, 291.5, and 275 for Pharmacy, Common Law, and Medicine respectively.

The more competitive the course, the higher the cut-off mark. Every year, each university has a certain cut-off mark for all courses. Some universities make their departmental cutoff marks available to the public, whereas others do not
