The Olabisi Onabanjo University, OOU cut off mark for 2019/2020 academic session is out. Therefore we will be discussing OOU’s JAMB and Departmental Cutoff points.
First, let us start by defining cutoff mark, for the sake of the students who do not clearly understand what cutoff mark actually means.
Cutoff mark simply means the minimum mark that is expected of an admission seeking-candidate to score before he/she could be eligible for admission into the University/any other higher institution of learning.
Second definition; it is a fixed mark determined by the management board of a University/any other higher institution of learning as a basic for admitting students into the department of study, in which any candidate seeking for admission into such tertiary institution must not score below. Any candidate who scores below such mark will not be offered admission.
Therefore, its advisable that any student seeking admission should perform well enough in order to meet up with the school cutoff mark, even preferably to beat the cutoff mark in order to improve his/her chances of securing admission into the department of their choice.
In this article, we shall be discussing JAMB and departmental cut-off mark as released by the management of Olabisi Onabanjo University for 2019/2020 academic session.
OOU Cut Off Mark 2019/2020 Academic Session
The Olabisi Onabanjo University Ago-Iwoye has announced that its JAMB cut-off mark for admission seeking-candidates is 180 for 2019/2020 academic session, therefore candidates who scored below 180 in their UTME will not be offered admission into any of the department in the university and such candidate should not participate in the screening exercise at all.
With respect to this, we also observed that 180 has been the minimum jamb required score since the last two years.
Note that special JAMB score might be required for candidates that applied for LAW and MEDICAL SCIENCE courses.
Below is the list of departments in Olabisi Onabanjo University that accept 180 as JAMB cut-off for 2019/2020 academic session.

I shall be sighting good example of Jamb Cut Off.
Example for JAMB (Joint Admission and Matriculation Board) Cutoff- If the Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU) management says its minimum JAMB(Joint admission and Matriculation Board) requirement to study Mathematics in OOU is 180 and a candidate scored 179, which is obviously lower to the University’s requirement, such a candidate will not be considered for admission because he/she scored lower than the school actually required, but if the candidate scored 180 and above in Jamb (JOINT ADMISSION AND MATRICULATION BOARD), such candidate will be considered for admission.
I know for sure that you have clearly gotten idea of what JAMB (Joint admission and Matriculation Board) cut-off is all about based on this explanation. That is why NAIJA SCHOOL ADMISSION is always here for you.
I scored 180 in my JAMB Exam, will I be automatically offered admission into OOU?
Well, having scored 180 in JAMB indicates your chances of being offered admission based on the admission requirement of the University, but it does not automatically guarantee that you will be offered admission, the reason for this response is because, according to several experiences about the process of offering admission to students into OOU, preferences are usually given to aspirants who have scored above 180 in their UTME before considerations are given to those who scored exactly 180, this is not to scare you but to let you know that this usually occur due to competitiveness in the admission processes by the admission-seeking candidates.
Meaning that, if a candidate scored 250 in JAMB and another one scored 180 and they both chose to study in same department, the candidate who scored 250 stands the chance of being offered admission into that department than the one who scored 180.
Therefore, it is best you score above 180 in your UTME in order to improve your chances of securing admission into the Olabisi Onabanjo University (OAU).
Please study the above breakdown of the department and jamb cutoff mark requirement carefully. After that is done, and you have met up with the OOU cutoff mark, the next phase of the admission process is the screening exercise.
It has come to our notice at ‘naijaschooladmission’ that many students who are aspiring for admission into University and other higher institution of learning do not know what screen exercise actually means and what it entails.
Therefore there are two (2) common questions from the applicants, they are as follow;
What does screening exercise means?
As part of the lay down patterns/methods of admitting students into University, ‘Screening Exercise’ means the verification of the authenticity of results and other credentials of any student aspiring to get admission into a University.
So, What are the requirements for screening exercise in OOU?
First, it is important for you to know that Olabisi Onabanjo University(OOU) holds her screening exercise within seven days( one week) or more due to the volumes of applicants they usually have every year and also to conduct proper screening for the students to ensure that qualified students are determined and awarded admission accordingly.
To know the dates for the screening exercise, I would advice you to be constantly listening to news update about admission, reading newspapers or visiting the Olabisi Onabanjo University news portal for update on the screening exercise dates.
Documents required for the screening are your SSCE (WAEC ,NABTEB or NECO) RESULT and JAMB REGISTRATION PRINT OUT.
Also note that cases of awaiting result will not be considered, better still, ensure your O level results and any other requirement are accurate as required by the University to avoid disqualification.
To sound a warning note to any student applying to OOU for screening, do not get to the screening venue less than 35 to 40 minutes before the screening exercise starts so in order to avoid getting to the University pre-screening venue/center late and also to be prioritized for the screening as well as to quickly get notified about any new development relating to the exercise.
Note that the SSCE(WAEC/NECO) RESULT and JAMB REGISTRATION PRINT OUT Screening is considered the first phase of the screening exercise, that is why it is called pre-screening for admission.
Therefore, this will lead us to discussing the second phase of the screening exercise which takes place after you have been successfully offered admission into the Olabisi Onabanjo University(OOU) to study the course of your choice. Meanwhile, at this second phase, proper screening and documentations are required which include presentation of the following documents.
- Original Notification of admission status slip
- Original copies of your credentials ( Both statement of results and certificates),Please note that awaiting results will not be accepted
- Certificate of Local Government of Origin
- Birth Certificate or Declaration of Age.
Letter of recommendation/good conduct from your village head, any responsible member of your community, a civil servant not below Grade level 10 or its equivalence in the private sector.
