What is OAU Predegree?

OAU Predegree is a 9-month remedial programme that is open to students who have completed their Secondary School Education and are willing to gain admission into Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State.

Predegree as a remedial programme is structured to cater for the following:

  • Bridging the gaps or lapses in the knowledge a student has acquired in their O’level programme.
  • To assist, prepare and impact necessary knowledge required for secondary school graduates to fit into the university environment.
  • Preparing them for degree courses they would like to study in the institution.

Candidates who take the Pre-Degree Programme are presented to OAU for admission consideration into 100L degree courses. Predegree is different from JUPEB or IJMB which is an advanced level program to gain admission into 200 Level in a University.

Can I use OAU Pre-Degree to Study in Another School?

No! Pre-Degree final results can only be used to gain admission into degree courses at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.

How many years is Pre-Degree Results valid for?

The Pre-Degree result only lasts for one admission year and can be used to gain admission to study any degree course in OAU.

Which Courses are Available at OAU Predegree

Like I mentioned earlier, predegree students are able to study any course that matches their subject combination in OAU. In the second contact, students will pick their course of choice and will be offered admission after meeting the cutoff mark for the course. Check the list of OAU Degree Courses here.

Do I need to do JAMB for Pre-Degree?

Gaining admission into Pre-degree Programme only requires your O’level result. However, Pre-Degree students are required to write JAMB UTME during the programme, as UTME is among the admission criteria into degree courses in OAU. This implies that you will write UTME after you have been admitted into the Pre-degree programme, this UTME is added to your Predegree and O’level scores to determine your admission into Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU).

How is the OAU Pre-Degree Programme structured?

As stated earlier, the programme will run for 9 months, split into two (2) contacts; first and second contacts, more like semesters but it is called contact. During each contact, a test and exam are done at specific times of the contact as will be stated in the calendar. These scores will be added together at the end of the programme to determine your Pre-Degree final score.

Do I need to do Post UTME?

Pre-Degree students have options to gain admission via 2 entries; Pre-Degree results or Post UTME results. This means, that doing post-UTME is optional and you may choose to write the Post UTME test or not, however, pre-degree students must register for Post UTME in order for their data to b available for admission on OAU portal.

Important Note

Please note that Pre-Degree Students are not yet undergraduate students of Obafemi Awolowo University, and the Pre-Degree Programme is being managed by Centre for Distance Learning, OAU, Moro, Osun State and this is the same place where the campus is situated.

How Sure Is Admission to OAU via Pre-Degree?

Being a beneficiary of the OAU Pre-Degree Programme, I can say the admission process is easier and more insightful than other methods, your chances of gaining admission are high, if:

  • You have a good UTME score
  • You are ready to put extra effort into the Pre-Degree Programme.

Those who didn’t meet the necessary cut-off marks are later considered for another department, this is another benefit.

Who is Pre-Degree Advisable for?

Pre-Degree is advisable for fresh secondary school graduates who are willing to gain admission to OAU, or any other schools offering this program, and also, students who are willing to get adequately prepared for degree courses in the university as well as those with very low UTME scores.

Can I use my previous UTME result with my PD score?

No, since UTME results cannot be used for more than 1 admission year, only the UTME done during the year of admission is valid, which means if you enrol for 2023/2024 Pre-Degree, you must register for 2024 JAMB UTME and sit for the exam, because your admission to OAU will be determined in 2024.

How is Admission into OAU determined for Pre-Degree Students?

Admission into OAU for Pre-Degree students is determined using 3 criteria, which are: UTME Results, Pre-Degree Results and O’level Results, Click the link below to read more about this process.
