OAU JAMB Cut Off Mark for All Courses 2023/2024 Academic Session

Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife JAMB cut off mark for all courses that are offered in the institution has been released by the school authority in accordance with JAMB’s directive. Before the management and school authority of OAU fix their minimum cut off mark, it has to be in line with that of JAMB’s approved cut off mark for the academic session. JAMB does not fix OAU cut off mark, however they (JAMB) peg a fixed admission cut off point every academic session that no institution must go below, that is, in the case of OAU, they must not go below the ceiling placed for fixing of cut off marks.

This academic session, JAMB fixed the general cut off mark for all universities (Federal, state and private universities in Nigeria) as 160. However, universities are at liberty to fix their minimum admission cut off mark at 160 and above. For example, the cut off mark for OAU is 200. This simply means that candidates that register OAU as their preferred choice of institution must have scored at least 200 and above to be eligible to purchase OAU post UTME form and apply for admission into their selected course. JAMB’s duty is to regulate and give admission to deserving candidates who meet OAU cut off mark and passed the Post UTME test.

Oftentimes candidates seeking admission are confused as to what is the best JAMB score for their course which results to questions like?

I got 190 in JAMB, can i be admitted into OAU?

What score must i get to study Accounting in OAU?

What is OAU cut off mark for 2023/2024 academic session

Sometimes candidates who scored 185, 198, 204, 215, 220 and above ask if they are eligible to study Computer science, Medicine and Surgery, Pharmacy or any of the courses offered in OAU. Please note that with the courses and cut off mark available here today, you will know by yourself if you are qualified for admission into OAU. I will be listing the approved OAU course and minimum JAMB cut off mark you are supposed to score to be eligible for Post UTME at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.

In your search for admission, please note that choosing OAU as your 1st choice of institution in your UTME registration is the first step to gaining admission because the school would give consideration to candidates that selected OAU as their first choice of institution before considering other choices if need be.

Again, candidates with higher JAMB score are at advantage of gaining admission into OAU even though all candidates who score 200 and above are given equal opportunities to sit for the post UTME because after calculating their aggregate score or weighted average, candidates with higher JAMB scores tend to score higher because of their UTME scores gives an edge when calculating their average cut off mark over candidates with low UTME scores. So, it is advised you try as much as possible to score high in your JAMB and Post UTME to give you a better chance of studying your preferred course.

With the above information at your disposal, I can assure you that you will gain admission into OAU with ease. Most candidates fail to acknowledge the fact that a low JAMB score decreases their chances except candidates who are listed among the Educationally Less Developed States.

OAU cut off mark is quite high, that is, it is not easy to score up to 200 in your JAMB unlike other Federal schools with the same standard as OAU who still have their minimum cut off mark is 160.

Below I have listed all courses offered in OAU as well as OAU JAMB cut off mark in a tabular format for proper understanding by both first-time candidates and candidates who have attempted JAMB in the past.
