Is FUOYE Accepting 150 For Its Admission? See Answer

FUOYE logo

One of my readers just hit me on WhatsApp. He wanted to change his university to the Federal University of Oye Ekiti (FUOYE). He must have heard from a brother or sister that the federal-owned university is accepting less than 180 from her aspirants. He wanted to try his luck with 167.

This guy was one of the thousands who were rushing to change their institutions to the university for the old fact that it accepts 150 and above.

And after receiving a few other calls from admission seekers on the same issue, I thought I must clear the air on this.

Note that I have earlier released some posts to guide people out of these kinds of messes. I don’t want you to repeat the mistakes your brothers and sisters made. And to be forewarned, they do say, is to be forearmed.

Is FUOYE Accepting 150 and Above Cut-Off Mark?

The answer to this is YES.

You may not argue this if you had a brother who was given admission into the university about four or five years ago.

You’re right.

In the last three years, the FUOYE cut-off mark has been 160/170 or above. But for the 2022/2023 admission year, the federally-owned university accepts 150 or above.

Let me remind you that FUOYE was then newly established. They needed candidates to fill up their departments. Hence, they lowered their guard so more applicants with lower UTME scores could come for them.

But JAMB Ordered Universities to Accept 140

Yes and No!

I know you need explanations for that.

It’s true that JAMB asked our public universities to accept 140. But it’s not as you’re reading or hearing it.

I explained that in my post, “JAMB National Cut-Off Marks: Will All Universities and Others Accept it?”. But to help further here. Let’s see the statement as released by the admission body.

The 19th Policy Meeting on Admissions to Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria has approved 140 and above as the national minimum benchmark for admission for the year into public universities.

Now, take note of the phrases “minimum benchmark” and “and above”.

The “minimum benchmark” means greater than or equal to (≥). That is, those universities are not allowed to take less than 140 but they can consider any mark above their standard.

The “and above” means that the universities may consider anything higher than 140 if they want.

Now, how did you understand it as “all universities must accept 140?”

Apparently, NO!

The problem with most of us is that we don’t even read and understand what the news is saying; we only understand what we want them to say.

Will FUOYE Accept Less than 180 then?

Since they are still allowed to accept 140 if they want, won’t they consider 140 or a few marks above?

The answer to your question is not that straightforward. But I must be frank with you. This university has got to a level where they can’t accept less than 180. And that 180 may not work well for some competitive courses.

If I'm not wrong, the university was the 4th most chosen university in 2018. Luckily they went back to the era of the 150 and above cut-off mark this year. See Confirmed FUOYE Cut-Off Marks for All Courses for this year.

What Can You Do Now?

My advice for you is to stick to the cut-off marks they released. That will keep you on the saver side. Don’t chase the university blindly.

And don’t forget. You’re not writing entrance exams (post UTME test) through which you can possibly prove yourself. The university will only consider candidates with higher JAMB scores and competitive O’level grades. Note also that your As and Bs must be from 5 relevant SSCE subjects with your proposed course.

If this is not the right market for you, try other universities that may be accepting lower UTME scores.

Best of luck!
