How To Calculate UNICAL 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.


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.

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..

This is what UI uses to know if you are eligible for admission or not.

Both scores are placed on a scale of 0-400 and then added together to come up with your final score. This means the JAMB score will be added to 4 times your post-UTME score and the total will be divided by 2.

To calculate UI Post UTME, you should know that 60 questions of your subject combination are summed in 100 marks. and when divided by your score, you arrive at your aggregate score.

How To Calculate UNICAL Aggregate Score 

UTME ==> 50%

Post UTME ==> 50%

For UTME/JAMB Score:

Divide your JAMB/UTME Score By 8

For Post UTME Score:

Divide your post UTME Score by 2

Lets take Treasure as a case study,

She scores 283 in her JAMB and 70 in her Post UTME, her aggregate score will be calculated as follows;

a) JAMB score divided by 8 which is 283/8 = 35.4

b) Post UTME score which is 70/2=  37.5

The sum of both score would be Treasure’s aggregate score

35.4+ 37.5 = 72.9

Therefore, Treasure’s aggregate score would be 72.9 out of 100 and this is above average. With this aggregate score, she is certain that she will gain admission into the University of Calabar popularly known as UNICAL.
