If you’re interested in studying Sociology at Osun State University (UNIOSUN), here are the requirements you need to know:
Minimum Entry Requirements:
You should have a minimum of five credit passes in relevant subjects, including English Language and Mathematics, in the Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (SSCE) or its equivalent (like WAEC or NECO).
Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME):
You need to take the UTME organized by JAMB and obtain a minimum JAMB score set by UNIOSUN. The specific score requirement may vary, so check the UNIOSUN admission portal or contact the admission office for the current requirement.
After obtaining the required JAMB score, you must participate in the UNIOSUN post-UTME screening exercise. This usually involves a written exam or computer-based test (CBT) to assess your knowledge and suitability for the Sociology program. Visit the UNIOSUN admission portal for updated information on the screening process.
O’Level Subject Requirements:
In addition to the minimum entry requirements, you need credit passes in certain subjects at the SSCE or its equivalent. These subjects often include English Language, Mathematics, and three other relevant subjects like Government, Economics, History, Literature in English, Biology, or any Social Science subject.
Direct Entry Requirements:
If you’re applying for direct entry, you need a minimum of two A-level passes or their equivalent. One of the A-level subjects should be Sociology, and the other can be from Arts, Social Sciences, or Sciences. You also need to meet the O’Level subject requirements mentioned earlier.
Admission Cut-off Mark:
UNIOSUN sets a cut-off mark for each program, including Sociology, every year. This mark is the minimum score required for consideration for admission. The cut-off mark can vary annually based on factors like the number of applicants and available spaces. Stay updated on the UNIOSUN admission portal for the Sociology cut-off mark.
Remember, these are simplified explanations, and it’s important to refer to the official UNIOSUN guidelines or contact the admission office for detailed and up-to-date information.
