How to Calculate UNILAG Aggregate Score 2019/2020

The University of Lagos (UNILAG), has a way it calculates the aggregate scores for its candidates. The UNILAG aggregate score is what would be compared with the cutoff mark; If any candidates aggregate score meets the cut off mark, such candidate will be admitted by merit.

In this post, you will learn the format used to calculate UNILAG’s aggregate score.

Unilag uses your UTME score, post-utme score and O’level result grades to calculate and get the final aggregate score, it is this same aggregate score that will be used to determine if you will be admitted. For you to be admitted, your aggregate score must meet the cutoff mark of the course you applied for either by merit or by catchment.

Before you can calculate the aggregate score, you need to first know how UNILAG calculates your O’level result, JAMB (UTME) score, and post-utme score.

How UNILAG Calculates O’level Grades

The calculations are based on the grades you had for the five relevant subjects in your chosen course.

You can see the five relevant O’level subjects for all UNILAG courses here.

These are the marks for each grade below.

A1 = 4.0
B2 = 3.6
B3 = 3.2
C4 = 2.8
C5 = 2.4
C6 = 2.0

Bunmi, a UNILAG medicine and surgery aspirant has the following grades in her WAEC result;

Mathematics = B2
English = A1
Chemistry = B2
Physics = C5
Biology = A1

Using the grade marks above, her UNILAG O’level grades will be calculated like this;

3.6+4.0+3.6+2.4+4.0 = 17.6

Bunmi’s O’level grade would be 17.6.

I hope you get the logic here.

Now, the next stage is how the JAMB score is calculated.

How UNILAG Calculates JAMB (UTME) Score

Candidates JAMB scores result to 50% of the total aggregate score. This means, the higher you score in JAMB, the higher your chances of getting a good aggregate score. Although, other aspects of the grading system should not be ignored.

UNILAG divides your JAMB score by 8.

If Bunmi (from the example above) scored 247 in her JAMB UTME examination, her total score will be divided by 8.

247/8 = 30.88.

The post-UTME score represents 30% of the total UNILAG aggregate score. This is the part you cannot assume for now until after you have written the UNILAG Post-UTME examination.

The total mark here is 30%.

Please note that candidates that score below 12% in the UNILAG post-UTME screening exam will be disqualified irrespective of the candidate’s JAMB score.

Let’s assume Bunmi scored 23% in the post-UTME exam.

How to Calculate UNILAG Aggregate Score

Using Bunmi as a case study, we have to add up all the figures we got in her O’level grade, JAMB grade, and post-utme grade.

let’s have a recap;

Bunmi scored the following grades;

O’leve grade = 17.6
JAMB UTME grade = 30.88
Post-UTME grade = 23%

Her aggregate score would be calculated like this;

17.6+30.88+23 = 71.48

If Bunmi’s aggregate score is equal to or higher than the cutoff mark of the course you chose, she will be admitted.

Hope you have learned how UNILAG aggregate score is calculated?

For now, you can calculate your O’level grade and JAMB UTME grade while preparing for the UNILAG post-UTME exam. You could get the UNILAG Post-UTME past question and answers here for free.
