How To Calculate ABSU Post UTME/Aggregate Score For All Courses

Many Students find it hard to calculate their aggregate score and their cut off mark as this varies for different Institutions, but before this, we are going to tell you what aggregate and Post UTME Score means and what things are to be considered before calculating the aggregate score.

Abia State University is one of the state owned universities in Nigeria. These state academic institutions were created to expand admissions and bring professional skills, expertise and modern research facilities close to the city and rural dwellers, and have helped talented students to obtain higher education.


That means the candidate must get at least 50 Questions Correctly. The aggregate score will be used to determine the cut-off point for admission into each of the programmes. Cut-off points for each course will be determined by the performance of all the candidates who applied for the course.

See: List of Nigerian Universities That Accepts 120 As Cut Off Mark 


After every UTME exercise, a particular mark is set out by the exam body {e.g 120}. This mark is a score a candidate must have or cross, to qualify him or her to sit for the chosen school’s POST UTME exercise. This said mark is announced to all school’s to enable them decide the number of candidates they will admit.
After the school’s decision, they announce a particular mark which must not be lower than the mark the UTME body fixed. Any candidate who cross the mark set by the UTME body and did not reach the chosen school’s mark, is NEVER eligible to sit for the school’s POST UTME.
This mark or score set by the school admission board is known as SCHOOL’S CUT OFF MARK..

When calculating ABSU’ aggregate score, two areas are important and they are, JAMB and Post UTME

step #1
Multiply your jamb score by 0.6 and divide the result by 4
Step #2
Multiply your screening score by 0.4
Step #3
Add the final  results in step #1 & #2
that is your aggregate
For a better understanding, lets use Treasure as a case study,
Assume Treasure scores 250 in her JAMB, and 150 in her Post UTME, we can get her aggregate score by doing this;
 Step 1 :  250 x 0.6= 150/4= 37.5
 Step 2 : 150 x 0.4 = 60
Step 3 : 37.5 + 60 = 97.5
 Therefore, Treasure’ aggregate score for Abia State University (ABSU) is 97.5
