Many Students find it hard to calculate their aggregate score and their cut-off mark as this varies for different Institutions.
Still, 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.
Obafemi Awolowo University, formerly known as the University of Ife, is a federal government-owned and operated Nigerian university. The university is in the ancient city of Ile-Ife, Osun State, Nigeria.
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.
How to Calculate OAU Aggregate Score
Below is the OAU grading system for O’Level. You are required to have at least credits in 5 subjects relevant to your
course and these five subjects will be graded.
A1 – 2.0 points
B2 – 1.8 points
B3 – 1.6 points
C4 – 1.4 points
C5 – 1.2 points
C6 – 1.0 points
You can follow the calculation process below when you have your JAMB score, Post UME score, and O’level grades handy.
Divide your JAMB score by 8
Add Post UTME score
Grade your O’level score and add it too
The result is your aggregate score
Let’s Use Treasure as a case study for a better understanding
Assume Treasure scores 280 in JAMB,
30 in Post UME and has the following
grades in his five relevant O’Level subjects.
B2 = 1.8
A1 = 2
C4 = 1.4
A1 = 2
B2 = 1.8
Her total O’level grade score would be =
1.8 + 2 + 1.4 + 2 + 1.8 = 9
JAMB = 280 / 8 = 35
Post UME = 26
O’Level grades = 9
Total aggregate score = 35 + 26 + 9 = 70
Therefore, Treasure’s aggregate score will be 70.
In conclusion, calculating your OAU Aggregate score is an important step in the admissions process for all courses at OAU.
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 choice at OAU.
