A candidate scored 260 in JAMB and 70 in Post UTME, then the Aggregate score is gotten by so;

Jamb  260/8= 32.5

Post UTME  70/2= 35

Total  32.5+ 35= 67.5

The candidate’s aggregate score is 67.5

2. Consideration of O’level (WAEC, NECO, GCE or NABTEB):

The O level is calculated using the 5 core subjects(core to the course you wish to study as decided by the University) as follows:

— A1–6 points

— B2–5 points

— B3–4 points
