HOW TO CALCULATE UNICAL AGGREGATE SCORE

For those that do not know how to calculate their UNICAL Cutoff mark, this section is for you. Below I will explain how you can calculate UNICAL post UTME aggregate for 2020. Meanwhile, it is important to note that both JAMB UTME and Post UTME score actually contributes to UNICAL aggregate, and they are both 50%.

Conversely, to calculate UNICAL post UTME aggregate, divide your JAMB score by 8 and keep the answer.

Secondly, divide your Post UTME score by 2 and keep the answer.

Now, add the results of the two calculations above and that is your aggregate for the year. To explain this further, I will use an instance.

So, take for instance, if Emeka participatedu in the just concluded JAMB UTME and UNICAL post UTME examination, having 250 in JAMB and 70 in post UTME examination, below are the steps to calculate his aggregate:

  1. First is to divide his JAMB score by 8. Which will be 250/8 = 31.25%. 
  2. Secondly is to divide his Post UTME score by 2 which will be 70/2 = 36.5%.
  3. Finally, Emeka’s aggregate will be the sum of the first and second step above, which will be 31.25% + 36.5% = 67.75%. 

Hope this was understood? Well, if you have any problem, you can send it using the comment section.
