This is to inform the entire University community and the General Public that PostUTME, Direct Entry and other relevant Screening Examination for 2023/2024 admission exercise will be conducted with an automated O’ level and UTME results grading system.
Candidates are advised to go to JAMB accredited CBT centers /JAMB Offices and upload their O’ level result’s to JAMB CAPS Portal in other to be considered in the 2023/2024 admission exercise.
Please note that candidates should not use regular/ non JAMB accredited cyber cafes for result’s upload to JAMB CAPS Portal.
In order to ensure transparency in the 2023/2024 admission exercise the following calculation formula will be used for the exercise
Candidates will be screened based on their UTME scores and O’level result for the four subjects taken in UTME. The following considerations will apply:
A. RATIO– The ratio will be 70:30. i.e 70% UTME score and 30% O’level subject score 70/100 = 0.7; 30/100 = 0.3
B. RANKING OF O’LEVEL RESULTS SCORES – O’level results will be ranked as given below:
A1=90, B2= 80, 83= 70, C4= 60, C5=55, C6=50, D7, E8 and F9=0. Awaiting Result (AR)=0
For each candidate, the O’ level subjects used will be the subjects the candidate sat for in UTME.
E.g for a candidate who sat for English,Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics in UTME, the grades obtained in candidate O’ level results in these subjects will be used to calculate the O’level points obtained.
C. BONUS-A candidate who credited his four O’level subjects in a single sitting will get a bonus of 10 points (i.e Bonus =10). A candidate who credited his four O’level subjects in two sitting will get no bonus (i.e Bonus = 0).
Final score = (UTME score 0.7) +[(O’level score + Bonus)*0.3]
Final Score= Weighted UTME score+Weighted O’level score
(280 x 0.7)+[ (285+10) x 0.3]
= 196+ 88.5
II. Two Sitting:
Final Score Weighted UTME score+Weighed O’level score
(280 x0.7) + [ [285+0)x 0.3]
Note: The difference between the final screening scores of a candidate who credited his four O’level subjects in a single sitting and the candidate who made it in two sittings is 3.(i.e 284.5-281.5)
