The first piece of information you need to know as an aspirant of the University of Ibadan is the Post UTME screening format.

A student sitting for the UI screening exam without knowing what to expect would be terrible.

The format for the University of Ibadan (UI) is a computer-based test (CBT) comprising of hundred (100) questions on your four (4) JAMB subject combinations for ninety (90) minutes.

The University of Ibadan Post UTME syllabus is all the topics you must study for the Post UTME exams.

All aspirants must study each topic in the syllabus to get a high score in the screening examination.

I know you would ask where one can get this syllabus for the exam preparations.

The University of Ibadan Post UTME syllabus is the JAMB syllabus.

It means that the topics you studied for your JAMB examination are what you must cover once more for your UI Post UTME test.

How to Calculate UI Aggregate Score

The formula to calculate the University of Ibadan (UI) Post UTME aggregate score for admission is to divide your JAMB score by eight (8) and your Post UTME score by two (2).

For example, Adedamola is applying to study Linguistics and African Studies at UI with a JAMB score of 268 and a Post UTME score of 62.

Her aggregate score would be thus;

  • JAMB: 268/8 = 33.5
  • Post UTME: = 31
  • UI Aggregate: 31 + 33.5 = 64.5

Now, that’s how to calculate your UI aggregate score for admission.

A high aggregate score above the departmental cut-off mark is the way to get admission to the course you want to study at UI.

The University of Ibadan (UI) does not use O’level results (WAEC or NECO) for admission.

Applicants must only possess a minimum of credit passes in their five (5) relevant subject combinations.

UI accepts NECO and WAEC O’level results.

Tell me in the comment if you need further help or have questions about this calculation.

Let’s get into the primary purpose of this post.

As you know, UI is the most competitive University for admission in Nigeria.

You would contest the few available slots with other top-performing students in Nigeria.

Many students mistake applying to UI with low JAMB scores for admission. There isn’t any way such candidates would stand a chance for admission.

For example, a student who wants to study Medicine and Surgery should have a JAMB score of 300 and above.

Knowing the format for the University of Ibadan Post UTME examination is the only way to prepare and pass the screening test.

At the beginning of this post, I made emphasis on the format of the exam. But there is more information you must know to get a high score.

The University of Ibadan uses Roman numerals format for their Post UTME screening test.

This method is a bit advanced, nothing you have encountered in Secondary School or JAMB examination.

Here is a sample of the UI Post UTME questions;

Questions: Mountains (highest)

(i) Chappal Waddi (ii) Zuma Rock (iii) Aso Rock (iv) Shere Hills

  • (a) i, iii, iv, ii
  • (b) iii, iv, ii i
  • (c) ii, iv, iii, i
  • (d) iv, iii, i, ii

The correct answer is option C

You see, the Post UTME exam is no joke. Note that there may be a slight variation in the exam format for the next screening test.

Kill the Fear of Failure

Killing the fear of failure is necessary to perform excellently in the UI Post UTME examination.

Many students sit for the test without believing they can pass the exam or gain admission to the University of Ibadan.

You must develop a positive mindset throughout preparation to get a high score. It is with positivity for excellence you would put in your best to study for the exam.

The best way to gain confidence is to have a high JAMB score. You would have a firm reliance when you believe you can be among the selected few eligible for admission.

Every student studying for the University of Ibadan Post UTME exam must use the UI syllabus to guide their preparations.

The UI area of concentration or syllabus contains the topics you must study to pass the UI screening test.

Fortunately, the UI Post UTME syllabus is identical to the JAMB syllabus.

Therefore, the University of Ibadan screening test is like repeatedly preparing for the JAMB exam. Only that this time, you have more experience

But I must tell you at this moment that it would be helpful if you could use A’level materials for your preparations.

Practice Past Questions

Practising UI past questions is necessary to perform excellently at the University of Ibadan Post UTME examination.

The past questions will serve as a guide to know the nature and test your exam preparation level.

Like the JAMB exam, past questions are necessary preparation materials.

It is necessary to note that the University of Ibadan does not have past questions booklet. Whatever material you would come across was prepared by private individuals.

But I advise you to get any quality materials you can use. Also, you would need to get the official UI practice questions to know the nature of the exam.

In all, remember that covering the Post UTME syllabus is the best practical way to gain admission to the University of Ibadan.

The University of Ibadan (UI) does not repeat past questions. The purpose of the past questions and answers is to test your level of preparation for the exam.

Attend Tutorials

Attending tutorials are a good option for students that need assistance with their studies.

During your JAMB preparations, you may have experienced difficulties with specific subjects or topics in the syllabus.

Now is the time to get help because you can not afford to fail the UI Post UTME exam.

One excellent option is to attend Post UTME introductory tutorials around the University of Ibadan campus.

Here, you will be taught by experienced teachers who know the structure of the UI Post UTME.

But for students living outside Ibadan, you wouldn’t need to worry as you have a high chance of excellence.

I recommend you attend good tutorials at your location and use YouTube videos to learn.

Stay Updated on UI News
