How to Calculate EKSU Aggregate Scores
The truth is that there is no exact formula to use when calculating Post UTME Score. Some institutions do not make their calculation open.
Perhaps, the reason is that there are many considerations and factors that influence how Post UTME score is calculated.
But we have made an attempt and arrive at a very accurate way that you can use to calculate your admission chances using your JAMB Score and POST UTME Result.
To make this calculation accurate, we have to consider how Jamb relate to Nigeria Army University Admission process.
How Ekiti State University (EKSU) Considers Your Jamb result for Admission
The Post JAMB Exam that is popularly known as Post UTME is usually conducted by individual higher Institutions in Nigeria.
This school combine candidate’s JAMB Score, their O’level result and other necessary requirements to calculate and arrive at the candidates that are qualified for admission.
Universities, Polytechnics, and even colleges are allowed to conduct Post JAMB screenings for prospective undergraduate students into their respective institutions.
However, these Institutions must on their own plan and organised for their Post UTME registrations, conduct examinations, release results and many other essential requirements for the smooth conduct of the screening. It is also good to know that it is not all Universities, Polytechnics, and even colleges that do write Exam in their POST UTME exercise.
The cost of registering for Post UTME varies from one institution to the other. But recently, due to some interventions from the Federal Government, the charges for the screening is kept at N2,500 Naira.
How To Calculate EKSU Post UTME Aggregate Score
- Add your O’level score: Now let’s assume you have MATHS C4, ENG C6, CHEM A1, BIO A1 and PHY B2. Using the points we stated above your O’level Score should be 31/40.
- Divide your JAMB Score by 400 and multiply by 60: Assuming your JAMB Score is 280, when you divide it by 400 and multiply by 60, it will give you 42.
- Now add what you got in (1) and (2): Using our example, we should add 31+42 = 73%.
- Your answer is your EKSU aggregate score: Still following our example, the EKSU aggregate/average score will be 73%
The final aggregate score will be used for admission. If you meet your department’s aggregate score then you will be admitted, else you will not!
For example, in order to calculate your EKSU Post UTME aggregate score, the formula purportedly adopted by the institution is the summing up of your UTME (JAMB) SCORE divided by 8 and your POST UTME SCORE divided by Your Jamb score is allocated 50%, Your O’level is 20% and your post-utme is 30%.
1. Considering JAMB Score:
Maximum score under JAMB is 400.To prorate to 50% your Jamb score will be divided by 8 (400/50
2. Considering O’level (WAEC, NECO, GCE or NABTEB):
O level is calculated using the 5 core subjects(core to the course you wish to study as decided by the University) as follows:
- A1 – 6 points
- B2 – 5 points
- B3 – 4 points
- C4 – 3 points
- C5 – 2 points
- C6 – 1 points
And maximum is 30 points. The total points is then prorated to 20 through multiplication by 2/3.
3. Considering POST-UTME:
Here is the score many candidates seem to find rather confusing. Some complain of having a higher score in the POST-UTME than university cut-off points without being admitted. But what they must understand is that even if they score 100% in that exam it amounts only to 30% of the cut-off point. So their Post -Utme score is usually prorated to 30 marks using 0.3 as the multiplier
Example: If a candidate had 202 in Jamb and his O level goes Like this: Maths-B3, Chemistry-C4, Biology- B2, English- C5, Physics-C6, Economic-B3, Geography-A1 and had 58% in the post utme. The he can calculate his composite, by following the format below:
Jamb score divided by 8 i.e 202/8=25.25
For the O level, only 5 subjects (math, english, chemistry, biology, and physics) are needed. There he has Math – B3 – 4 points, English – C5 – 2 point,Chemistry – C4 – 3 points,Biology – B2 – 5 points, Physics – C6 – 1 point Total gross points for O level= 4+2+3+5+1=15. This score is then multiplied by 2/3 i.e 15 x 2/3=10. His post utme score is allocated 30% and is multiplied by
0.3. i.e 58 x 0.3=17.4
Therefore, the candidates’ composite is the sum of these 3 scores i.e Jamb+O’level+post utme. That is 25.25+10+17.4=5 2.65 Hence, the candidate’s composite is 52.65.
Now note the 5-point gap between the composite total and what he scored in the post-utme. That 5-point gap may result in not being granted admission! Okay?
Pls NOTE that 100% used above may be equivalent to 100,200 or 400 marks in different universities
Alternatively you can follow this Example 2 to know your EKSU Post UTME aggregate score and chances of Admission:
If you scored 290 in UTME (JAMB) and went on to score 70 in POST UTME, your aggregate score will be calculated as follows:
UTME Score = 290/8 =36.25
Post UTME Score = 70/2 =35
Your Aggregate Score =36.25 + 35 =71.25%
