Low JAMB Score, Thinking of changing your course ? Here are 10 less competitive courses in OAU .
Jamb has just been concluded and quite a number of persons will have no choice but to switch to a different course. A course can be referred to as less competitive due to the low number of application received for that particular course. OAU is tagged “hot cake” because quite a good number of individuals are willing to do anything to become a student of Great Ife regardless of the course. Every department on OAU is very competitive and no one can be said to be for dullards. However, here are some departments that are less competitive for your low utme score.
Music department is in the faculty of Arts and you need to get atleast a score of 220 in JAMB.This course goes beyond playing musical instrument and singing. These guys here also calculate if you think this would be an escape route from calculations, you better think twice. Job opportunities include sound engineer, production assistant, studio manager, theater manager and so on.

5. Social Studies
There can’t be an end to the study of man and the environment as it evolves as day passes. To have a deeper understand of how man interact as a social being, social studies can be a go for you.

7. Animal science
There is more to Animal science than just the study of animals. Research industry, private university and federal government are the places where an Animal scientist can work. Animal science is in the faculty of Agriculture and all you need is 200.
8. Religious Studies
When I first heard about this course I thought those that study it would have no option than to end up as pastors. Religion studies teaches the history and practices of the different religion we have in the world. You necessarily don’t have to end up as a preacher. Counselor, author, international aid worker are work opportunities of those who study religious studies. Religious studies is in Faculty of Arts, all you need is 200 and above.

There is a lot more to the soil than just planting and walking on it. The study of this course gives you a deep insight to the composition and science of the soil. Work opportunities here include On-site evaluation,
Crop consultant and many more. Soil science is in faculty of Agriculture, all you need is 200 and above in JAMB. Another thing you should know is, there are limitless opportunities in Agriculture, regardless of the course studied.
Forget the fact that you learnt Yoruba in your secondary school. If you think you would be able to scale through this course with little or no effort then you are in for a big surprise. The scope of this course taught in secondary school is far different from the one in the higher institution. Yoruba is in faculty of Arts, your pass mark is atleast 200
Changing course does not guarantee that you would get admitted, as Post utme is another hurdle you have to cross. OAU itself is a destiny changer so instead of changing course, flow with the tide and accept the course given to you, find love in it, if you do not, kindly resume, get the part 1 experience and resit for UTME. We wish you all goodluck!
