The Admission Screening Exercise Grade of Marks and Points Calculation Admission Screening Exercise Grade of Marks and Points Summation For University Admission Of Recommended Candidates is a point system will be used for admission screening into Nigerian tertiary institutions for the 2016/2017 academic session. This was agreed upon by stakeholders in the education section. The agreement and modalities for the admission screening was later released and published by JAMB.
Admission Screening Exercise Candidates are to know that Submitting two WAEC/NECO/GCE results (i.e two sittings) is no longer the same with submitting one sitting for admission. Candidates who submit O’level at one sitting have an advantage over their counterparts with two sittings. It will contribute ti your total points that determines if you meet the cut-off marks.
Admission Screening Exercise Grade of Marks and Points Calculation
Admission Screening Exercise Grade of Marks and Points Summation For University Admission, the new admission system, admission would depend on the grades, marks and points of the candidate calculated using their O’level results (subjects grades) and their JAMB score.
- O’level Results Subjects Grades.
- JAMB Score.
How To Calculate Admission Screening Exercise Grade of Marks and Points Calculation
Step 1: Any candidate who submits only one result which contains his/her relevant subjects already has 10 points. The exam could be NECO, WASSCE, November/December WASSCE etc, but any candidate who has two sittings only gets 2 points.
O’level Results With One Sittings = 10 points
O’level Results With Two Sittings = 2 points
Step 2: O’ Level Grade Points: Each grade would have it equivalent point; A=6 marks, B=4 marks, C=3 marks while D-F=0 marks equivalent to No Marks.
Step 3: UTME Scores Points: Where each score range has its equivalent point which can be summarised thus, 180-200=20-23 marks, 200-250=24-33 points, 251-300=34-43, 300-400=44-60 points.
Note: For example a candidate with 180-185 gets 20 points, while a candidate with 186-190 gets 21 points.
Please be informed that FEES WILL STILL BE CHARGED for the screening exercise. Also, catchment and educationally less-developed state would still be used for admission from the 2016/2017 academic session.
Illustration Of Admission Screening Exercise Grade of Marks and Points Calculation
SITTINGS: O’level subjects in one sitting, you have 10 points there already, while any candidate who has two sittings only gets 2 points.
O’LEVEL: Assume a candidate has 2 A, 2 Bs and 4 Cs in your O’level result (WAEC/NECO/GCE), it would be calculated as follows;
(2×6) + (2×4) + (4×3) = 12 + 8 + 12 = 32 Points.
JAMB SCORE: Assume a candidate has JAMB score of 200 in JAMB, you have 24 Points there.
Admission Screening Exercise Grade of Marks and Points Calculation Summation of everything, gives
SITTINGS POINT + O LEVEL POINT + JAMB POINT = Admission Screening Exercise Result
Calculated Total Point for Admission is now 10 + 32 + 24 =66 Points.
Now, it totally depends on the admission cut-off mark for the course if it requirement is not more than the attained points to have a high chance of getting admission into the institution of candidate choice.
