If you are looking for accurate information as to how to calculate Abia State University aggregate score or aggregate cut off mark, then you are on the right page.
The aggregate cut off mark is the total score a candidate has after combining JAMB and Post UTME scores. For some universities, you would have to combine more than just JAMB and Post UTME but your O’Level grades as well.
Knowing your aggregate score is very important as this will determine if you are eligible for admission into the university. Your aggregate score should meet up with the departmental cut off mark of the course you wish to study before you will be allowed to study that course in ABSU.
How To Calculate ABSU Aggregate Score
It is very easy to calculate ABSU aggregate cut off mark as the university uses a formula similar to that of most universities. To calculate Abia State University cut off marks for 2020/2021, it is simple. Simply multiply by your post jamb score by your JAMB score and divide by two (2) in order to get your aggregate score. Then compare to the cut off mark of the department/course you are applying for to determine if you are eligible for admission.
If a candidate scores 250 in JAMB, and the candidate’s post UTME screening score is 250 the calculation would be = 250 + 250 = 500/2= 255. Therefore your score is 250 then compare it with the departmental cut off mark of your registered course of study to get your aggregate score
However, if you are able to perform really well in your Post UTME and JAMB you would find yourself having a really high aggregate score because ABSU prioritizes its both UTME and post UTME scores.
Why is it Important to Calculate The Aggregate Score

If you are unable to meet up with the departmental cut off mark you will not be considered for admission or pushed to other departments with lower cut off marks.
To ensure you get admitted to study the course of your choice, you would have to reach or surpass the departmental cut off mark. However, it is advisable you surpass the departmental cut off mark, especially if you are going for a competitive course.
