How To Calculate ABU 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.

Ahmadu Bello University is a federal government research university in Zaria, Kaduna State Nigeria. ABU was founded on 4 October 1962, as the University of Northern Nigeria. The university operates two campuses: Samaru and Kongo in Zaria

WHAT IS AGGREGATE SCORE 

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.

WHAT IS POST UTME SCORE 

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..

How To Calculate ABU Aggregate Score

  1. Take you School UTME performance.
  2. multiply it by 4.
  3. Now add it with your jamb score.
  4. Let also assume you scored 200.
  5. Finally divided by it by 2.

Now for a better understanding, lets assume Treasure scored 50 in her Post UTME and she scored 225 in her JAMB, her aggregate will be gotten by doing this;

50 (Post UTME)  x 4 = 200

225 (JAMB) + 200=     445

445/2= 212.5

Treasure’s aggregate score will be 212.5
