# How to Calculate UNILAG Aggregate Score for Admission 2023

The University of Lagos (UNILAG) is one of Nigeria’s top-tier universities, known for its rigorous admission process.

To gain admission into UNILAG, prospective students must meet specific academic criteria, including achieving a competitive aggregate score to beat the cut-off mark for the course they want to study.

The aggregate score is your JAMB UTME (Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination) score, Post UTME score, and O’level grades.

In this article, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of calculating the UNILAG aggregate score.

If you are not sure of your chances of applying to the course you are applying to, let me know the comment your JAMB score and practice for me to give you the best advice.

## How to Calculate UNILAG Aggregate Score

There are two methods to calculate the UNILAG aggregate score;

1. Aggregate score with Post UTME exam
2. Aggregate score without Post UTME exam

The first option is used if UNILAG conducts Post UTME, while the second option is when a screening exam is not conducted.

### Calculate UNILAG Aggregate Score With Post UTME

For this method, you need to calculate the average scores for the following;

• JAMB
• Post UTME
• O’level

Here are the steps to calculate your UNILAG aggregate score with the Post UTME exam;

#### JAMB Score Calculation

The first component of the aggregate score is the JAMB score. To calculate this, follow these steps:

1. Look for your UTME score in the result slip issued by JAMB (Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board).
2. Divide your UTME score by 8. For example, if your UTME score is 280, divide it by 8 to get 35.

#### Post UTME Score Calculation

The next component of the aggregate score is the Post UTME score, which is specific to UNILAG.

The UNILAG Post UTME exam is graded over 30%. That is, you can only get a maximum score of 30.

Also, note that you must not score below 12% in the Post UTME exam or be disqualified for admission.

To calculate this, follow these steps:

1. Look for your Post UTME score in the result slip issued by UNILAG.
2. For example, your score is 25%.

The final component of the aggregate score involves calculating the O’level grades.

This is done using the WAEC (West African Examinations Council) or NECO (National Examinations Council) results. Follow these steps:

1. Calculate your O’level grades using the five required subjects for your chosen course. The required subjects are usually English Language, Mathematics, and three relevant subjects to the course of study.
2. Assign grades to each subject using the UNILAG grading system. For example, A1 = 4.0, B2 = 3.6, B3 = 3.2, C4 = 2.8, C5 = 2.4, C6 = 2.0.
3. Sum up the grades obtained in the five subjects.
• A1 = 4.0 points
• B2 = 3.6 points
• B3 = 3.2 points
• C4 = 2.8 points
• C5 = 2.4 points
• C6 = 2.0 points

#### Calculation of Aggregate Score

Once you have calculated the UTME score, Post UTME score, and O’level grades, you can calculate the final aggregate score using the following formula: Aggregate Score = (UTME Score/8) + (Post UTME Score) + (O’level Average Grade).

For example, let’s assume:

• UTME Score: 280 (35 after division by 8)
• Post UTME Score: 25

Using the formula, the aggregate score would be Aggregate Score = (35) + (25) + 18.6 = 78.6.

#### Interpreting the Aggregate Score

UNILAG sets a minimum aggregate score for each course, which varies yearly.

It is essential to check the official UNILAG admission cut off mark here to know the specific aggregate score required for your desired course.

In conclusion, calculating the UNILAG aggregate score involves considering the UTME score, post-UTME score, and O’level grades.

### Calculate UNILAG Aggregate Score Without Post UTME

The UNILAG aggregate score is traditionally calculated by considering the UTME score, Post UTME score, and O’level grades.

However, in recent times, UNILAG has modified its admission criteria, eliminating the Post UTME component.

Instead, they now assign an equal weightage of 50% to both the JAMB score and O’level grades in the aggregate score calculation.

Here is the step-by-step process of calculating the UNILAG aggregate score without Post UTME, with the UTME score and O’level grades.

#### Gather the Required Information

Before proceeding with the calculation, ensure you have the following information:

1. UTME Score: Your score in the UTME examination conducted by JAMB.
2. O’level Grades: Your grades in the required subjects for your chosen course. These subjects usually include English Language, Mathematics, and three relevant subjects to the course of study.

#### Assign Points to O’level Grades

Here is a commonly used conversion scale:

• A1: 10 points
• B2: 9 points
• B3: 8 points
• C4: 7 points
• C5: 6 points
• C6: 5 points

Add the points obtained in all the required O’level subjects. This will give you the average points.

#### Calculate the JAMB Aggregate

Divide your UTME score by 8 to account for its weightage in the aggregate score calculation. This will give you the JAMB component score.

#### Calculate the Aggregate Score

Add the JAMB component score and the O’level component score together to get the final aggregate score.

For example, let’s assume:

• UTME Score: 280
• Average Points in O’level: 56

Using the steps outlined above, the calculation would be as follows:

• JAMB Component Score: 280/8 = 35
• O’level Component Score: 10 + 5 + 7 + 8 + 9 = 39
• Aggregate Score: 35 + 39 = 74

In conclusion, calculating the UNILAG aggregate score without post-UTME involves assigning equal weightage to the UTME score and O’level grades.
