# HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR JAMB, POST UTME, WAEC/NECO CUTOFF MARKS

__HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR JAMB, POST UTME, WAEC/NECO COMPOSITE__

__HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR JAMB, POST UTME, WAEC/NECO COMPOSITE__

**Your Jamb score is allocated 50%, O level is 20% and post-ume is 30%.
**

**JAMB**

**Maximum score under JAMB is 400.To prorate to 50% your Jamb score will be divided by 8 (400/50)**

**WAEC/NECO**

**O level is calculated**

**using the 5 core subjects(core to the course you wish to study as decided by the University) as follows**

***A1-6points**

***B2-5**

***B3-4**

***C4-3**

***C5-2**

***C6-1**

**Maximum is 30 p0ints**

**The total points is then prorated to 20 through multiplication by 2/3.**

**POST-UTME**

**Here is the score many candidates seem to find rather confusing. Some complain of having a higher score in the POST-UTME than university cut-off points without being admitted.What they must understand is that even if they score 100% in that exam it amounts only to 30% of the cut-off point. So their**

**Post -Utme score is usually prorated to 30 marks using 0.3 as the multiplier**

**Example: a candidate had 202 in Jamb and his O level goes thus. Maths-B3, Chemistry-C4, Biology- B2, English-C5, Physics-C6, Economic-B3, Geography-A1 and had 58% in the post utme.**

**To calculate his composite, this is how it’s done.**

**Jamb score divided by 8 i.e**

**202/8=25.25**

**For the O level, only 5 subjects (math, english, chemistry, biology, and physics) are needed. There he has Math-B3-4points,English-C5-2point,**

**Chemistry-C4-3points,**

**Biology-B2-5points,**

**Physics-C6-1point**

**Total gross points for O level=**

**4+2+3+5+1=15. This score is then**

**multiplied by 2/3 i.e 15 x 2/3=10.**

**His post utme score is allocated 30% and is multiplied by 0.3. i.e 58 x 0.3=17.4**

**Therefore, the candidates’ composite is the sum of these 3 scores i.e Jamb+O’level+post utme. That is 25.25+10+17.4=5 2.65 Hence, the candidate’s composite is 52.65.**

**Now note the 5-point gap between the composite total and what he scored in the post-utme.That 5-point gap may result in not being granted admission! Okay?**

**NOTE: 100% above may be equivalent to 100,200 or 400 marks in different universities**
