Good and Bad News! OAU May Remark Post-UTME. Recheck for new result 

Did you write OAU post UTME? Do you know a friend or family who had checked his or her post UTME result but found a disheartening score? Then, you must read and share this post.

OAU Post-UTME and Early Anomalies
Lots of inconsistencies were recorded during the post UTME registration of the Obafemi Awolowo University. For example, applicants had to wait about one or two days after the very date for the commencement of the registration before they could register. Who knows why?

A related issue arose when they had to schedule for test. There were postponements of the date to reprint and also some were still rescheduled.

Release of the Results and Confusion
After test comes results but some applicants were thrown into confusion with marking and grading. Some applicants concluded maybe negative making or something. Some thought system error. Some even thought international way to fail them.

Or how do you explain dash (-) in the English score for all applicants? Does that mean candidates were not graded with English or it means no mark or score in English for all?

Candidates were expecting solutions or explanation but yet to get any.

Possibility of Exams Remarking and New Results
However, with look of things it’s like the management are set to resolve or do something about it. This is because, result checking link in the applicant’s dashboard was removed on September 3, hence no applicants could check or print his or results within that period. If you try to check result now, you may see a notification "Please check back in 24 hours!"

I therefore advise candidates to regularly log in to recheck what this quick removal of result link may bring.

There’s no joy without sharing, share this post with friends and family. You can help somebody with it.
