How to calculate OAU aggregate score

In calculating your OAU aggregate, it is important to note that both JAMB UTME, OAU post UTME and O’level result must be considered together. O’level take just 10%, JAMB UTME takes 50% and Post UTME takes 40%. In total, everything is 100%. Now lets see how you can calculate your aggregate.

Step 1: Simply divide your Jamb score by 8

Step 2: Next, add it to your post UTME score.

Step 3: Now calculate your O’level result using the grading system below:

  • A1 – 2.0 points
  • B2 – 1.8 points
  • B3 – 1.6 points
  • C4 – 1.4 points
  • C5 – 1.2 points
  • C6 – 1.0 points

Note: This should be used to calculate the 5 subjects that are related to your desired course of study.

Step 4: Add the results in step 1, 2 and 3 above and that is your aggregate score.

Example: below is the calculation for a student who scored 280 in JAMB, 26 in OAU post UTME and had A, B2, B2, B3 and B3 in his O’level result.

Jamb score 280/8 = 35

Post UTME = 26

O’level = 2+1.8+1.8+1.6+1.6 = 8.8

His aggregate score is = 35+26+8.8 = 69.8

By way of conclusion, i encourage those whose cutoff mark is far from the one stipulated by the university to quickly apply for a change of course/institution form immediately. On other hand, if your cutoff mark is above the cutoff mark or slightly below it, then just keep calm and pray. Any more questions on this topic should be directed to me via the comment session.
