How To Calculate UNIJOS 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.

What became the University of Jos was established in November 1971 from the ellite campus of the University of Ibadan. The first students were admitted in January 1972 as pre-degree students and the first Bachelor of Arts degree program begun in October 1973. In October 1975, then military government under General Murtala Mohammed established the Unijos as a separate institution. The first Vice-Chancellor of the Unijos was Professor Gilbert Onuaguluchi. Classes began at the newly reorganized University of Jos in October 1976 with 575 students spreading over the existing four faculties of Arts and Social Sciences, Education, Natural Sciences and Medical Sciences. Post-graduate programs were added in 1977. By 1978 Faculties of Law and Environmental Sciences were established and the Faculties of Arts and Social Sciences was separated.

In 2003, the Carnegie Corporation of New York gave Unijos a $2 million grant to form its own fundraising department.


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..

How To Calculate UNIJOS Aggregate Score 

Two things you need in order to be able to get your aggregate is your JAMB score and Post UTME score.

First and foremost,  you should know that UNIJOS post UTME comprises of 60 questions of your subject combination in JAMB making it 100Marks in total.

For a better understanding, ill use  Treasure as a case study,

Assume Treasure scores 240 in JAMB, and 60 in Post UTME, her aggregate score will be gotten by;

240/8=  30

60/2= 30

30+ 30 = 60

Therefore, Treasure’s aggregate score is 60.
