MOUAU ADMISSION SYSTEM: THE COMPETITIVE QUOTA ANALYSIS

This write up is specifically meant for all aspirants of the Micheal Okpara University Of Agriculture, Umudike, who are still yet to see their Names in the 2012/2013 MOUAU admission list.
Read It Carefully And Attentively.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Basically, admission at MOUAU is based on a competitive quota system.

What does that mean?

This simply means that during the admission process, each department/course is allocated a certain number of student slots within the total admission quota for the entire University and these slots are competitively allocated.
So assuming the University has about 2,000 slots approved by NUC for a particular session, this number is divided between the depts/courses.

Soil Science, Botany, Agronomy may be given less than 50 slots each, while the more competitive Agribusiness, Microbiology, Comp Eng, Comp Science, may be given about 150 slots each. And other depts/courses in order of size and competitiveness.

During the selection process, all the students who applied for each of these courses are listed according to the scores they have, in descending order.
Then selection is made based on the quota allocated for that dept/course for that year.

Therefore if after sorting the names a candidates name falls as the 88th person in order of score for a particular programme that was allocated 50 slots, obviously such a candidate will not be admitted.

Typically, applications received for the programmes mentioned earlier ranges around these figures during Post UTME:
• Soil Science – less than 20,
• Botany – about 100,
• Agronomy – less than 10, while
• Agribusiness – abt 1,300,
• Microbiology – almost 1,000,
• Comp Eng – abt 900,
• Comp Science – over 1,000, etc.
• Civil Engr – abt 300-400.

With the explanation above and the figures shown here, you will discover that a candidate who was denied admission in Comp Engineering, will find another candidate with the same scores, being offered admission to read Civil Engr.
This is because the competition is less heated there.

Equally a candidate who was denied admission to read Biochemistry, will find out that the scores of several of those admitted to read Botany/Zoology are much lower than his/hers. And when this happens such a candidate will start complaining and claiming that he/she was denied admission as a result of corruption and bribery, obviously not understanding the way the system works.

I can categorically tell you that the merit admissions at MOUAU are processed 100% on merit. After the merit admissions, then comes the supplementary admissions. But many of our prospective students do not know that supplementary admissions is not automatic.

You need to indicate interest and apply for it. If you don’t apply for the supplementary admissions at the right time, the result is that a candidate who scored lower than you, but who indicated interested and applied through the proper channels will be admitted and you still find yourself without admission and probably complaining.

That Shall Not Be Your Portion. Amen.
