The Obafemi Awolowo University(OAU) Pre-degree registration for 2012/2013 academic year has begun.

The Pre-degree is a platform, much like the JAMB UTME that allows interested applicants to gain admission into courses of their choice, After they must have spent one academic year, and passed the post-session examination. The programmes, unlike the JAMB UTME makes it much easier for these candidates to gain admission, since they are fewer in number, and are mostly favoured.

In summary, the Obafemi Awolowo University(OAU) opens up 3,500 spaces for admission of candidates through JAMB UTME with a student population of over 35,000 students, while the Institution opens up about 1,500 spaces for admission of candidates through pre-degree and Direct entry with less than 2,500 applicants, so it can be almost certain to conclude that,
. . . Three out of every Four pre-degree applicants who successfully pass their examination, gain admission…….

After all that has been said, most people would wonder why students still have not taken this supposed easy route to admission, and avoid all the hurdles of the JAMB UTME?

The reason is simply, the same reason why we had few turnout at the Lagos State University Post-utme, that had the University begging for students.

Yes, the reason is the High fees, Most parents cannot afford the high tuition fee of the OAU pre-degree, and so, their only chances of getting their wards through tertiary Institution, is the most popular and Less successful JAMB UTME.

If You can afford it, We would advise You to go for it, because in that, You have become 3/4 most likely to gain admission come next year.

The application for the 2012/2013 OAU pre-degree is currently on and Interested applicants are required to obtain their E-transact registration code from any branch of the following banks;
– UBA,
