200 is the minimum JAMB score to qualify for OAU Post UTME.

But scoring 200 in JAMB won’t guarantee your admission, Medicine & Surgery being a very competitive course in Nigeria require you score very well in JAMB

…a JAMB score of 340 and above should do the Job, and also doing very well in OAU Post UTME Exam is a prerequisite.

Post UTME Score For Medicine In OAU

A score of 84 in OAU Post UTME is good enough to secure your spot in the college of medicine OAU.

You may be asking, why do I need to score that high in JAMB and still do well in Post UTME?

Well, the truth is, admission to student is dependent on varying factors, such as Merit, ELDS, general students performance etc.

Students admitted on the merit list must score well above the aggregate score for Medicine.

Based on previous years, the aggregate score for Medicine & Surgery in OAU is 80.3, now let’s both analyze the JAMB and Post UTME score you will need to get to score above the aggregate 80.3.

OAU Medicine & Surgery Aggregate Score

OAU Aggregate score for admission into Medicine and Surgery is 80.3.

To calculate OAU admission aggregate score, you divide your JAMB Score by 8 and your Post UTME score by 2 and sum them up.

We can then say that your aggregate score is the summation of your JAMB score divided by 8 and your Post UTME score divided by 2.

A student who wishes to study Medicine in OAU and scored 340 in JAMB and 84 in Post UTME, using this formula, the aggregate score can then be calculate as;

340/8 + 84/2 = 42.5 + 42

Making the student’s aggregate score 84.5

So you see that the higher your JAMB and Post UTME score the higher your average aggregate score which consequently increases your chances of being admitted.
