UNIBEN Post UTME Question Format
The University of Benin (UNIBEN) Post UTME question format is sixty (60) questions for one (1) hour on questions on your JAMB subject combination.
The UNIBEN Post UTME exam is like sitting for the JAMB examination all over again, only that you would answer fewer questions this time.
Note that the number of questions may vary this year depending on the university admission office’s decision.
But the questions would always range from fifty (50) to seventy (70) questions, and the time duration is sixty (60) minutes.
How to Calculate UNIBEN Post UTME Aggregate Score
The UNIBEN aggregate score calculation is simple using the procedures below.
To calculate the UNIBEN Post UTME aggregate score, divide your JAMB score by eight (8) and your Post UTME score by two (2).
Let’s assume Adesuwa, applying to study Nursing Science at UNIBEN, got a JAMB score of 284 and a Post UTME score of 76.
Her aggregate score would be;
- JAMB: 284/8 = 35.5
- Post UTME: 38
- Aggregate = 73.5
From our calculation, you can see that Adesuwa’s aggregate score is 73.5.
UNIBEN Cut Off Mark
There are two categories of admission cut-off marks at the University of Benin (UNIBEN);
- JAMB Cut-Off Mark
- Departmental Cut-Off Mark
The general JAMB cut-off mark is the score set by the University that qualifies you to sit for the screening examination.
In contrast, the department cut-off mark is the score you must reach to get admission to study at UNIBEN.
You must study hard and pass the Post UTME examination to get a high score above the departmental cut-off mark to gain admission to the University of Benin.

Develop a Positive Mindset
Developing a positive mindset is the first step to passing the UNIBEN Post UTME examination.
The thing is that many students come to write the screening test with a fear of failure. They lack the confidence to succeed in the examination.
For one reason, these students believe they cannot pass the UNIBEN screening exam or gain admission to the University of Benin.
Without a positive mindset for success, you cannot prepare for your Post UTME examination to get a high score in the CBT exam.
You must think of yourself as a UNIBEN material. Never have the ideal you are a failure or not worthy of success.
These students have the mindset for success because they are applying for a competitive course.
I want you to, at this moment, reassure yourself and believe you can gain admission to the University of Benin (UNIBEN).
Let me know in the comment box at the end of this post if there is any reason why you think you cannot make it to UNIBEN. I will give you the best advice.
Determine Your Chances for Admission
Knowing your chances for admission before the Post UTME exam is necessary.
Many students applying to study at UNIBEN make the mistake of applying to study courses they have little or no chances of admission.
Some factors can hinder your chances for admission even if you get a perfect score in the UNIBEN Post UTME exams.
The two (2) determining factor in getting admission at UNIBEN is;
- O’level Subject Combination
- JAMB Score
O’level Subject Combination
Five (5) credits in relevant subjects in your WAEC or NECO results are essential for admission to study at UNIBEN.
Let me know in the comment if you are unsure about your O’level (WAEC or NECO ) result for the course you want to study at UNIBEN.
JAMB score determines whether or not you would get admission to study at the University of Benin.
In UNIBEN, your JAMB score accounts for 50% of your aggregate score.
It means that if you have a high JAMB score, you have a good chance of gaining admission to the school.
Applying for any competitive courses at UNIBEN would require a high JAMB score.
Tell me your JAMB score and the course you are applying to study at UNIBEN to know your chances of admission.
Study the JAMB Syllabus
The University of Benin uses the JAMB syllabus for the Post UTME examination.
All Universities in Nigeria use a syllabus for setting their exam questions in their screening exam.
The UNIBEN Post UTME syllabus lists topics you must study for the screening examination. It is a guide to knowing what to study for the exam.
You must read all the topics before the Post UTME exam to get a good score.
Over the years, students who perform excellently have always covered the syllabus.

Study JAMB Past Questions
The University of Benin (UNIBEN) uses the JAMB past questions for the Post UTME examination.
Contrary to what many students believe, UNIBEN does not set their Post UTME questions.
Instead, the school uses JAMB past questions for their question bank for the screening exam.
As a student preparing for the UNIBEN Post UTME, you must study JAMB past questions from 2000 till date; then, you can study for other lesser years.
I recommend you get a hard copy of the JAMB past questions and answers. You can also practice questions online on Myschool.
Get the UNIBEN Past Questions
To familiarise yourself with the examination format, you must get the UNIBEN past questions.
It would help to enhance your preparations and determine your readiness for the exam.
Do not make the mistake of trying to cram the past questions hoping to see a replica on the day of your exam.
I recommend you buy the hard copy of the UNIBEN past questions booklet than the softcopy.
Do not pay anyone online on Facebook or WhatsApp for the PDF of the UNIBEN past questions. It should be free of charge.
