Many students believe that Obafemi Awolowo University PUTME is difficult. Well, what if I tell you that it is easier to score higher in post UTME than in JAMB. I know that this sounds strange to many but yes, it’s true. If you think that this is not true, kindly leave your contribution in the comment section below so we can stay in touch.
One of the tips to score high in PUTME is studying past questions. Studying past questions boost your chances of scoring high in OAU and other institutions’ PUTME. Hence, what are you waiting for?

OAU Post UTME Form Application deadline
The sales of the 2020 Post-UTME application form which was earlier scheduled to close on 31st October 2020 has now been extended until further notice. Likewise, the Post UTME Screening Exercise earlier slated to hold between November 21 and December 5, 2020, has been postponed till further notice. This is in line with the directive of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to accommodate the candidates that might have been affected by the rescheduled National Examinations Council (NECO) MayJune 2020 Examinations. A new date will be announced soon, via the University Website and its authorized social media handles.. OAU Management regrets all inconveniences this postponement may cause.
After JAMB, What Next?
Without much ado, just as the saying; the best time to repair your roof is when the sun is shining. Take note that this year’s post-UTME result will pose different problems to candidates, especially all candidates who did not score up to 200 generally because of the increasing number of students who are seeking for admission.
What is more important to read before getting admitted? Personally and to all successful candidates, we know that the best material you should be reading now, is the OAU past questions and answers. Proceed and make sure that you solve every year’s past questions.
Are you among those students who think that playing video games, engaging in paid work, attending parties are many but few things to do after writing JAMB? I am not trying to tell you that you shouldn’t have fun or try to make money. All I want to remind you is that you should not forget that post UTME is by the corner while enjoying life. Almost all Universities in Nigeria conduct screening exams in order to determine students who are of the best fit for their institution. Having said that, it is important to note that you should be getting ready for your PUTME exam at your chosen university.
