The FIRST RESULT SLIP printed was based on an AGGREGATE SCORE.
The POST-UTME AGGREGATE SCORE is computed as follows: A = UTME-SCORE(over 400) divided by 8 B = TOTAL O-LEVEL SCORE divided by 5 C = TOTAL POST-UTME SCORE
POST-UTME AGGREGATE SCORE (100%) = (A + B + C)/100 x 100%
The NEW RESULT SLIP is based on the POST-UTME SCREENING SCORE only, this is a portion of the POST-UTME AGGREGATE SCORE.
The POST-UTME SCREENING SCORE is computed as follows: A = TOTAL O-LEVEL SCORE divided by 5 B = TOTAL POST-UTME SCORE
POST-UTME SCREENING SCORE (100%) = (A + B)/50 x 100%
Candidates will notice a CHANGE in their SCORES because the first print out is an AGGREGATE SCORE, while the second is a SCREENING SCORE. Candidates must score at least 50% in the POST-UTME SCREENING SCORE to be considered for admission.
The POST-UTME AGGREGATE SCORE (which has UTME score considered) will be used for placement in FACULTIES and DEPARTMENTS.
JAMB CAPS Admission
The Joint admission and matriculation board has announced that the new method for admission for 2017 UTME applicants will be automated by programming the admission criteria into a software referred to as Central Admission Processing System ( CAPS ).
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has fixed minimum cut off marks for Nigeria’s tertiary institutions.
The minimum cut off marks for admissions into universities in Nigeria was set for 120, polytechnics and colleges of education pegged at 100, while that of innovative enterprising institutes was pegged at 110.
Institutions are, however, at liberty to raise their cut off marks for admission above the minimum set by JAMB.
