How to Calculate the Aggregate Score for State Polytechnics
To gain admission into most State Polytechnics, eligible candidates have to pass a Post-UTME examination, also called Aptitude Test.
Therefore, it is important for students to know how to calculate their aggregate scores so that they become aware of the possibility of their admission and start making the necessary preparations.
What is Aggregate Score?
Aggregate score refers to the score gotten by adding two or more scores grades together. The aggregate score is used to determine the cut-off point for admission into each programme.
For this purpose, it is obtained by finding the average score of a student from his/her UTME and Post UTME scores.
Cut-off points for each course will be determined by the performance of all the candidates who applied for that course.
How to Calculate Aggregate Score
To calculate the aggregate score, you have to know your JAMB score as well as your Post UTME score.
To correctly calculate your aggregate, know that the JAMB Examination has 400 marks, whereas State Polytechnics’ Post UTME is 100 marks.
- Divide your JAMB score by 8,
- Divide your Post UTME score by 2,
- Add up the result.
Say, Treasure had a JAMB score of 240 and a Post UTME score of 60; her aggregate score can be calculated as such:
240 divided by 8 = 30; 60 divided by 2 = 30. Therefore, Treasure’s aggregate score is 30+30= 60.
You are now aware of the State Polytechnics in Nigeria and how to calculate their aggregate score, which is an important step in the admissions process for all courses at these institutions.
Therefore, it is essential to put in your best effort throughout the application process to increase your chances of being admitted to the program of your choice.
