HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR JAMB, POST UTME, WAEC/NECO CUTOFF MARKS

HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR JAMB, POST UTME, WAEC/NECO COMPOSITE

Your Jamb score is allocated 50%, O level is 20% and post-ume is 30%.

JAMB

Maximum score under JAMB is 400.To prorate to 50% your Jamb score will be divided by 8 (400/50)

 WAEC/NECO

O level is calculated using the 5 core subjects(core to the course you wish to study as decided by the University) as follows

*A1-6points
*B2-5
*B3-4
*C4-3
*C5-2
*C6-1

Maximum is 30 p0ints The total points is then prorated to 20 through multiplication by 2/3.

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.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: a candidate had 202 in Jamb and his O level goes thus. Maths-B3, Chemistry-C4, Biology- B2, English-C5, Physics-C6, Economic-B3, Geography-A1 and had 58% in the post utme.

To calculate his composite, this is how it's done.

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-B3-4points,English-C5-2point,Chemistry-C4-3points,Biology-B2-5points, Physics-C6-1point

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?

NOTE: 100% above may be equivalent to 100,200 or 400 marks in different universities
