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.

See OAU cut-off for 2021 Admission


1. Music

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.

2. Dramatic arts

In your mind you might be like is it not to act drama? I have great admiration for student in this department and can’t help but wonder if they even have time to rest cause they are always in the theater.If laziness is part of your calling I would advise you not to go near this course. Job opportunities include theater director, script writer, movie director etc. Dramatic arts is in the Faculty of Arts and all you need is 200 in JAMB, but to increase your chances, apply with 220 score and above.

3. Public administration

If you applied for accounting and your score won’t grant you access to it, you can go for Public Administration, they both fall under faculty of Administration. If you really love accounting, you are adviced go for ICAN professional exams.All you need to score is either exactly 200 or above 200 in JAMB.Job opportunities include foreign correspondent, Activist, Government relation manager etc

4. Foreign language

Learning someone’s language requires effort and hard work. You can’t say you don’t fancy stress and still fancy this course because you would have to stress your self.

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. Career opportunities in law, politics, social studies and media are available to those who study this course.

6. Education courses

Each course have their educational aspect. If you opt for a course let me say Chemistry and your score would shenk you, then try Education and chemistry. All educational courses are in faculty of education and all you need is at least a 200 score.

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.

9. Soil Science

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.

10. Yoruba

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

See scholarship application

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!

Ogunsua of Modakeke, Osun state, Oba Moses Oyediran, from Ajombadi Ruling House has passed on at the age of 95 years.

A statement on behalf of the state government obtained in Osogbo on Friday, signed by the Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Funke Egbemode, described Oba Oyediran as a God-fearing royal father who was an embodiment of wisdom and fairness.

Egbemode in her statement recalled the monarch’s role in ensuring that peace was restored to the community when a communal clash broke out last year.

The statement read in part, “The Government of Osun State hereby commiserates with the Ajombadi Ruling House, the people of Modakeke, the Council of Traditional Rulers and indeed the entire state over the demise of the Ogunsua of Modakeke, Oba Moses Oladejo Oyediran, Ajombadi III.

There is always something worth celebrating in the world. In Nigeria especially, the weekends are mostly for celebrations and even the bible admonish us to “celebrate with those who are celebrating”. These parties are normally graced with dishes of different kinds which is a motivating factor for most people to attend. Here are some reasons why you won’t be served food in an occasion.

1. Lack of connection

Everything in this life needs connection. To get a plate of rice or even more at a party then you need to know someone thats assigned to the kitchen.

2. Shyness

When food is being shared and they mistakenly/purposely skip you and you keep quiet because you are too shy to talk, you won’t get food.  Abeg who shy epp or na shy you wan chop after all the dance stress abi . Alaye soro soke Jo.

3.  Party goes wrong

If a fight or misunderstanding breaks out in the middle of a party, the probability that food would be shared is slim. Any thing that cause disruption of an occasion can lead to food not going round and therefore, not reaching you.

4. Your Ex is among the waitress

This is a nice time for payback. Even if you complain that you have not gotten food, she can make the tables turn and then everyone will see you as a liar. To avoid finding yourself in this situation, make sure your ex lovers don’t have a grudge against you.

5. Food don finish

In this period where everywhere just red but man gats to still party, the food available cannot be enough for all the guest cause even uninvited guest will be there.

Wetin person dey find for party if not food. It can be painful to see people eat in a party and food no reach your side. Do well to share an experience where food did not reach you in an occasion.

OAU provides accommodation on its campus for some individuals. The hostels are usually filled with a lot of persons in the room thereby making privacy difficult. A number of things to avoid when visiting a hostel on OAU include

1. Avoid walking on the lawns

I say this not necessarily because its a rule in the hostel. All thanks to the lack of constant water supply in the halls of residence, some people take to defecating in the ground and covering it. To avoid matching feaces, please avoid the lawns and follow the right passage.

2. Don’t look in the gutters

The gutters are nothing to right home about. Hostel residents dey do wonders. They throw disgusting stuff inside the gutters most especially female hostels. Get ready to see washed used pad, food remanant and things that can make you throw up. For your own good, avoid looking into the gutters.

3. Avoid the bathrooms /toilet

Even the hostel residents don’t enjoy going to the bathrooms because of how messed up it is. When some persons are passing/ visiting, they tend to peep at the bathroom segment and I wonder what you want to see but doing that is at your own peril.

4. Avoid the waste bins

Some people don’t know how to dispose leftovers and they just throw it like that in the waste bins. Some females throw used pads without even warping it. The dust bin should not fancy your attention and to avoid seeing nonsense, look away

5. Don’t forget your nose mask

All thanks to God for nose mask in our lives . When entering the hostel, you would first be welcomed with the stench of urine. Don’t put your nose in danger, go with your nose mask.

You may have had terrible experiences during a visit to OAU hostel. Do well to share with us in the comment section.

Due to the numerous occasions of hearing the statement “Democracy is the best system of government”, I subject this statement to criticism and commend from a viewpoint of skepticism, not to dismiss the statement if on appearance of different evidence it shows that indeed it is the best system of government. By putting every system of government together and through rigorous analysis, we get to see which one can attain if not absolutely but probably the rank of the best system of government.

Before I continue, putting this system of government to rigorous questions is not about how each country or a specific region decided to practice it, but addressing the concept as a whole to find the truth and the loophole of this system of government which means if the loopholes or disadvantages can surpass the advantages, then we can as well think of trying a new system of government or repairing the system of government in question to fit its real name.

Democracy is said to be the government of the people, by the people and for the people. The major terms in this definition of democracy as the government of the people, by the people and for the people is the phrase “By the people” which represents elected representatives by the people in a state or country. Without even accessing the other features of democracy like the rule of law, separation of power, independence of the judiciary, etc. just by accessing the definition and if possible that the foundation of the phrase “By the people” cannot stand very well to protect the building of democracy then we can conclude that democracy is not a system of government by the people thou it may seem like it, but it does not unless the error can be corrected to redeem the dignity of a democratic system of government.

Since we are looking for the foundation of democracy that can be found in electing the representative by the people, I think it is necessary to ask a question “Did I select the representatives I want, or do some groups of people do that for me”. Here, it is important to take note that this has nothing to deal with election malpractices although it is a disadvantage of democracy, it has not affected the reputation of democracy since that is what the country or region decided to practice. Here, the main focus is on the major and general terms of democracy that cut across different countries and not about how each country decided to practice its democracy.

If I can find a fault that I am not the one selecting the representative I want, then I can dismiss the term democracy as the government by the people. In selecting a representative, a party system is involved, it does not matter the type of party system in operation, what matters is that I was able to cast my vote for the representative that I want. Where a single party system is involved, it was said that it will lead to dictatorship, but we have a question here, “is it the case that the people will not have a choice to vote or that the party decided to bring forth the person they want”. In answer to this, many countries decided to choose two or multi-party systems with the aim that this will remove dictatorship by ensuring that the people cast their vote for who they want to promote democracy as a true government by the people.

After several analysis, it seems the evil that we want to prevent in a single-party system is said to be in disguise in other party systems which are the two-party and multi-party system. When a country is practicing two systems of government, with Party A and Party B as the political party in a given state or country, in each party there arises a different individual who is interested in a particular post and seeking to rule. In each party their can be up to 5 candidates who are interested in a single post, and the party will conduct a “PRIMARY ELECTION” before I continue, I would assume that any election into a particular post, everyone that will be ruled by the winning candidate should be available to vote depending on the criteria for voting hence a “Primary election” is a form of dictatorship in disguise in which out of the 5 candidate in a particular party contesting a particular post in the society or country, which are represented by canndidate C,D,E,F,and G, respectively, my best candidate that I want to select by my voting power is candidate D which belongs to party A but unfortunately, candidate E emerge as the winner in the election which I am not able to partake since it is not mainly for citizen, and at the end Party A will be represented by Candidate E and party B will select their representative also. Bases on the candidate available in both parties, I am actually not convinced to vote for them, but the candidate that get my interest has been eliminated in the so Called “Primary election”. Now, I have the option for voting for either of the two parties candidate or even without my vote one out of the two will be selected as winners. Is this a government by the people?

Now, the question here is, “is the political party selecting our representatives or we are the ones selecting them” even though a candidate not winning in a primary election does not give any assumption that he might not win in the general election. On this, I will assume that the democratic way of a primary election is propaganda of selecting our representatives by a group in disguise that our vote does. To answer this question is to raise another question “Should our vote be cast for individual representatives or Party representatives? Since the party representatives are selected by a few individuals.

However, we ought to be aware of the role of a party as a watchdog for the government but as much as I will like to discuss it, I don’t want this article to be too long while at the same time throwing a question to everyone and anyone to look critically into this loophole and give any idea of a possible solution to it. Along with this, I’ve taken my time to access other systems of government that we have not yet practiced before making an assumption to democracy as the best system of government if possible that we can find a solid foundation that can make the government, rulers, and administrator a representative selected by the people.

People that know OAU well will know White house, while Freshmen or other people that are not conversant with the university community might think I am referring to the white house on Pennsylvania Ave, and mistake whiteness to be a metaphor for righteousness or anti-corruption.
For people that do not know, and for the sake of repeating what is already known, it is good to state that there is a building on Obafemi Awolowo University campud that is called White house, the building supposedly derived its name from its color, but it has heretofore never been white, at least, since the time I have known it.

The building, which will more suitably be called Grey house can be seen struggling to retain its pristine state as it loses not just its whiteness, but other characteristics that make the building worth talking about.
White house, for many, is a metaphor for nightmares, while others who are presumably in the minority will always remember the building, which houses the faculty of science, with gratitude for the good things it has done to their CGPA. White house is one of the earliest buildings built in the academic core of OAU campus. It clearly exemplifies the modernist architectural style.
Characterized by its framed structural system, the building places emphasis on its vertical components, more than it does its horizontal components. The horizontal components in the building that gets attention are the steel brise soliel (sun-shading device) that hides part of the window from view, and make you wonder how air and natural light get into the building until you get inside.

The steel white-coated plate brise soleil makes it possible for the windows in white house to be very large, without there being an excessive amount of sunlight in the exterior spaces, while at the same time reducing the effect of glare, and making the interior spaces very cool as they are naturally ventilated. The cool nature of the interior spaces is also aided by the North-South orientation of the building, which ensures that the side of the building with more fenestration (openings like windows) are not directly exposed to the harsh mid-day sun.
White house sits on a strategic location on the academic core of the campus. If streets on OAU campus were named, white house street will be one of the busiest, as its location makes it a convergence space, as well as a circulatory space. The foyer of the building is seen to be always busy with students and other users using the ATM or just passing through to different places on campus. White house is part of the daily ritual of most members of the OAU community.

White house is one of the buildings that serve the faculty of science in OAU. It houses the physical sciences departments like Physics and Engineering physics, Chemistry, and the likes. White house at a first glance can be mistaken to have two wings, but there is a third wing that looks detached from the building. The third wing houses the department of Geology.
The first two wings are symmetrical duplicates of each other, in that, each one contains almost every space, layout, and elements as the other. The third wing, however, is more spatially distinct from the first two wings. The third wing of the building is an example of a brilliant response by architecture to the topography of a site.
Just beside White house is Yellow house, another house many OAU Students remember for not-so-good reasons.

Unlike White house, most parts of Yellow house still seem yellow as a result of a recent Tetfund renovation. Like Yellow house, White house is about to be White again.
As I go to the department of Architecture every time i am on campus, it is inevitable for me to pass through white house, Anytime I walk with a friend through this illustrious piece of architecture, I always cannot help but exclaim, “imagine when this building was still white”.
To the glory of God, and with much thanks to whoever made this possible, I and my friends will no longer have to imagine how White house looked like when it was in its pristine state, we will now be able to see the whiteness of white house very soon, and not only its whiteness, but the restoration of every components and elements that makes it worth talking about.

I was elated the first day I saw scaffoldings on the building, and I saw that the paint on some parts of it have been restored. My happiness was not limited to the renovation of the building, but extents to the realization that the ill-maintained architecture of OAU campus is now getting some attention, at least, so it seems.
While this is only my first writing about White house, it will not be the last. I will write about it again when the renovation in done, I hope I am still a student of OAU by then.

Living in Nigeria comes with many peculiarities as the living conditions make us adopt different lifestyles that has become a tradition in most homes There are some things you can’t find anywhere except in a Nigerian home.

1. Buckets of water

Water supply can be very unpredictable. Buckets filled with water are kept as backup for those times when water is used up.

2. Rechargeable lamps

It’s no longer news that power supply is very unstable. All thanks to the inventors of lamps that saved us from darkness anytime there is shortage of power supply

3. Bag of nylons

Once something is bought, the nylon gotten is added to the rest. No one is a waste as the need for one arises always.

5. Portable containers

These are kept to be used for things such as salt, sugar, beverages, detergents etc. Containers of different products are kept and recycled for such purpose. Example an ice cream plate housing egusi.

6. Ghana must go

No matter how rich you are, you can’t do without that bag. It can be a life saver.

7. Ropes in the bathrooms

This is a common sight in most female bathroom as it’s used to spread undies. A lot of persons avoid spreading their panties outside to avoid stories that touch the heart.

8. Brooms behind the door

This is the position mostly recommended by our Nigerian mothers as it can be used as a substitute for the canes we hid.

9. Improvised wardrobes

The sight of clothes being hung on a the arm of a chair or a door is not a new sight. This is done to air the cloth before it is shoved to its final destination.

10. Empty bottles

Bottles from soft drinks, bottled water are always present in a typical Nigeria home. It can be refilled with water and kept in the fridge or used for zobo etc

The list of things found in a typical Nigeria home cannot be exhausted. Do well to add to the list in the comment section.
