How to Obtain OAU Direct Entry (DE) Form

When a prospective admission seeker asks questions such as, how to obtain the direct entry form for the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), you may not get the answer right unless you ask him what he understands by the direct entry form.

I've seen a few aspirants who misunderstood the direct entry form to be the one you obtain without the need for JAMB - using just the SSCE (O'level) result.

If you're one of those, kindly know that Obafemi Awolowo University direct entry form will require you to:

  1. obtain JAMB DE form (not UTME - more on this shortly) and, 
  2. have SSCE results together with an advanced qualification

Still confused? Let's dive into it.

A University's or Polytechnic's Form That Requires SSCE Results Only

If you're hearing that some universities are admitting directly without JAMB, they're right.

This is better called direct-form-without-JAMB. It's not a Direct Entry form. Get the difference?

While the former only requires you to have O'level results only to process its admission, the latter needs more than that. 

Some people also call the former, degree daily part-time (DPT), like that of the Federal University Oye Ekiti, or polytechnic daily part-time(DPT), like that of the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic. These are just part-time programs but are run on a daily basis.

A True OAU Direct Entry Form Has to Do With JAMB

Though not JAMB UTME, you will still need to obtain a JAMB form called the Direct Entry form. This will not require writing any JAMB exam though. Just obtain the form, and fill in your universities and courses of choice.

This is strictly for candidates who had completed an advanced programme other than SSCE e.g. BSC. HND, ND, NCE, NR, RM, IJMB, JUPEB etc.

Hence, to process the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) direct entry form, you must have more than SSCE, as earlier explained.

If you've got that, below is the process to obtain the direct entry form.
