Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) released the 2022/2023 POST-UTME result last week, several calls have been placed to IOI from students who didn’t meet the required screening point, therefore, are not eligible for admission.

Are you worried about the next line of action now that you are not eligible for admission? or You are probably worrying that you scored high but it’s not enough for your desired course compared to past cut-off marks, then this is for you.

Depression is not the way out of this neither is shedding tears the solution. If  OAU has jammed you, do not worry, there is a remedy and that’s why I am writing to you on the best four ways to get admitted into OAU without POST-UTME.

1. Pre-degree

Pre-degree as the name implies is a degree earned before the university’s degree though not compulsory for everyone. Any student who attends the pre-degree college at OAU has to write JAMB, write the program’s examination & passed. The classes span between 9 to 10 months, similar to the first year in the university as several classes have to be undergone before writing the exam & the fee is between 250,000 to 300,000.

JUPEB A’levels allow you to be admitted directly to the second year(200level) of any course in OAU. This is a program that spans for the duration of 9 to 10 months (equals to two semesters in tertiary education) In order to gain admission with JUPEB, you need to attend its classes, such that you must have gained experience about those things you were supposed to be taught if you undergo your first year (100 level).

This can as well save you the stress of ASUU Strike in your first year. If you enroll for JUPEB now, you will definitely outrun your mate as long as you are ready to beat the varying cut-off marks (this depends on the course you wish to study). The fee ranges from 230,000 to 260,000. You don’t have to take this programme at OAU or around OAU for it to be accepted.

3. Distance learning

The OAU distance learning center is where you can learn (be lectured as a university student using the usual duration for the course) and have your desired result (B.Sc, PhD.) in the comfort of your home regardless of the distance. All you need to be accepted for this program is a good phone or laptop, an internet connection & the fee, of course, it is not free. You don’t have anything to miss out on, as you can have a side job & run this program.


IJMB(Interim Joint Matriculation Board Examination) is a Federal Government certified examination body, charged with the responsibility of conducting and processing direct entry admissions programme into 200level in OAU(& other Universities).

This program runs for nine (9) months which is similar to a session of two semesters in a tertiary academic institution. The price range for this program is between 180,000 & 250,000naira. This degree is similar to JUPEB so the certificate doesn’t expire in a year like JAMB’s.

With these five things listed here, you don’t need to be worried because you had less than 200 in your JAMB exam, rather you should be on the lookout for the release of forms of the programs listed above.


5. Re-write JAMB

Since JAMB is an exam written annually, you can re-write the exam but make sure you maximize your time, to either learn a skill or start a business if you have any, as this will help you prevent sapa once you get admitted. This time, you have to work harder than you have done so that you can reach the cut-off upon your next trial. it is never late, so brace up yourself, stop crying or being depressed and face this challenge. This is a phase and it would surely pass with adequate preparation for the next post utme exam . We believe in you and we are rooting for you!
