How to Calculate RSU Aggregate Score 2023/2024

Many Students find it hard to calculate their aggregate score and cut-off mark as this varies for different Institutions.

RSU Aggregate Score

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.

Rivers State University, formerly Rivers State University of Science and Technology, is located in the Diobu area of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. The university has a staff strength of 3,000 and a student population of 22,400 as of 2017.

What is Post UTME Score?

After every UTME exercise, the exam body sets a particular mark {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 schools to enable them to decide the number of candidates they will admit. After the school’s decision, they announce a particular mark that must not be lower than the mark the UTME body fixed.

Any candidate who crosses the mark set by the UTME body and does 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 RSU Aggregate Score 

To correctly calculate your aggregate, know that the JAMB Examination is made up of 400 marks, whereas the RSU Post UTME is made of 100 marks.

  • Divide your JAMB score by 8,
  • Divide your Post UTME score by  2,
  • Add up the result.

This is how to calculate yours.

If Treasure scored 240 in her JAMB and 80 in her Post UTME, then her Aggregate score can be gotten by following these steps.

240/8= 30

80/2= 40

40+ 30= 70

Treasure’s aggregate score is 70.

RSU JAMB Fixed Cut-off Mark

Jamb fixed cut-off mark for RSUST is 180.

Candidates with higher scores are first considered in admission basics candidates with lower scores though they might meet the cut-off mark of 180, may likely not be admitted. In fact, it is the higher your scores, the higher the chance of being admitted.

Departmental Cut-off Mark

The Rivers State University of Science and Technology does not have a specific course cut-off mark.

However, candidates who have scored a minimum of one 180 in the UTME examination are eligible to apply for admission into any of their choice courses.

Due to the high number of students wishing to study at the Rivers State University of Science and Technology, the admission process is competitive, and admission is given based on JAMB score and O-level grades.

Below are courses offered in the university as well as their cut off mark;

  3. 190 – Computer Science, English Language, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Geology, all engineering courses except Agricultural and Biosystem Engineering.
  4. 180 – All other courses

Candidates MUST meet the minimum UTME scores for their chosen courses, have the right UTME subject combinations as prescribed in the JAMB Brochure, and have the requisite ‘O’ Level subjects at credit level.

RSU Nature of Admission Screening
