Nigerian Army University, Biu (NAUB) is one of the most sought after army universities in Nigeria especially among newly graduated O’level students. There is this prestige that goes with the military maybe that is why there is this sudden rush for admission into this institution. One fact every candidate seeking admission into NAUB must know is that gaining admission genuinely into the school either via JAMB or Direct Entry is simple if they meet the requirements.
You can gain admission either via UTME or DE method based on merit without the influence of any army personnel, but do not forget the fact that you must pass the minimum cut off mark of NAUB, have your complete O’level result and and pass the post UTME cut off mark. Now the question you might want to ask is ‘how can i know that i have passed the cut off mark?’ to know this is simply by calculating your aggregate score which is a combination of JAMB and post UTME score. Sometime, your O’level result might be included.
In this post our mission is to teach students who participated in this year’s UTME on how to calculate NAUB post UTME screening aggregate score or cut off mark as this would help you in determining your admission status fast without having to confirm from a third party.
Since Nigerian Army University, Biu is a well respected school and highly valued in the Nigerian education sector, the most recent survey shows that 40% of UTME registrants from Miduguri choose NAUB as their preferred choice of institution before selecting the school under their catchment area, and the remaining 70% is shared other Federal and states universities as well as Federal and states polytechnics.
Before calculating your NAUB aggregate score, he followings are involved;
- NAUB JAMB Cut off mark
- NAUB post UTME score
In some schools, WAEC and NECO results are needed when calculating the aggregate cut off mark but Nigerian Army University do not require O’Level results when calculating candidate’s aggregate cut off mark however, your O’level result must be complete, that is, you must have obtained a minimum of 5 credit passes which must include mathematics and English Language and any 3 related subjects.
NAUB JAMB Cut off mark
Before calculating your NAUB aggregate cut off mark for admission, you must ensure you score up to NAUB minimum cut off mark that gives you the eligibility status of participating in their post UTME. A good JAMB score is the first step towards ensuring a better chance of you gaining admission into NAUB. The university obeyed JAMB’s directive to peg cut off marks at 160.
So before calculating your NAUB aggregate cut off mark you must ensure you have passed the benchmark fixed by the university and it would be worthy to note that the higher your JAMB score, the higher your chances of a higher aggregate score, hence the higher your chances of gaining admission into the Nigerian Army University, Biu.
NAUB Post UTME Screening Score
This is another important calculation that cannot be ignored, in fact if you do not participate in this screening exercise, no matter how high your JAMB score, your admission is as good as being lost for the academic session except you are lucky enough to purchase a change of course form and switch to another school that is yet to conduct their post UTME hence all your 5 senses must be on ground as regards the release of NAUB post UTME screening form in order not to miss out.
In calculating NAUB aggregate score, your post UTME score is needed, hence you must make sure you score above average if you want to stand a chance of gaining admission into NAUB. In the previous post UTME screening aptitude test many candidates cried out that after passing both JAMB and post UTME they were yet denied admission, it is not witch hunting as they thought it to be, NAUB select candidates with the best out of the bests aggregate cut off mark however there are exceptions to this and one of which is the number of candidates for a particular department.
Less competitive courses offered in NAUB usually have low number of UTME students who select them during their registration., but professional courses like Engineering, Law, Accounting, Medicine, Nursing and the likes usually have the highest number of course selections during UTME registrations which is why just passing your JAMB and post UTME is not enough to grant you admission into NAUB so it is advised you obtain at least, an above average score if you want to stand a chance of gaining admission into this university without hitches.
In summary of the above 2 paragraphs, to calculate NAUB aggregate score (JAMB cut off mark and Post UTME Score), candidate must score at least 200 in JAMB and 50% in their post UTME to stand a chance of gaining admission into the institution.
A lot has been discussed as regards all you need to known about NAUB aggregate cut off mark, now lets go proper into how to calculate NAUB post UTME screening score so candidates can start calculating their aggregate cut off mark as soon as their post UTME results are released.
We are going to be very practical in our illustration, it is a very simple mathematics, yet it needs a bit of concentration.
How To Calculate NAUB Aggregate Score And Cut Off Mark For 2023/2024 Academic Session
Knowing how to calculate your aggregate score can help student forecast or plan what they want to score even without having sat for JAMB or post UTME. You can use proposed your proposed JAMB cut off mark and post UTME cut off mark, calculate and see if you can study your proposed course, if yes then work towards it, if the aggregate score is not up to then you will have to put in more efforts or change your proposed course.
Now lets show you practical example on how to calculate NAUB’s Aggregate Score:
- NAUB Aggregate JAMB Score = 50%
- NAUB Aggregate Post UTME Score = 50%
Step 1: To calculate your aggregate score, you are to divide your JAMB score by 8
Step 2: Divide Your Post UTME score by 2
What ever your answers are in step 1 and step 2, sum them up to know what your score is over 100.
See Example below
Let us assume Mr Ahmed scored 250 in his UTME and scores 70 in his post UTME, Mr Ahmed’s UNIBEN aggregate score would be calculated as follows:
a) JAMB score divided by 8 that is, 250/8 =31.25%
b) Post UTME score divided by 2, that is, 70/2 = 36.5%
Then sum up both scores together, that is, 31.25% + 36.5% = 67.75%
Therefore, Mr Ahmed’s aggregate score would be 67.75% out of 100% and this is considered above average. In O’Level settings, this is considered a “B” hence a candidate’s chances of gaining admission is very high.
For candidates asking for the following:
- What is NAUB Aggregate score for Mechanical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering?
- NAUB Aggregate Score for Faculty of social sciences
- What is NAUB’s Aggregate Score for Business Admin?
- What is NAUB Aggregate Score for Computer Science?
- NAUB Aggregate Score for Accounting and all other faculties?
With the aggregate score (67.75%) calculated and used as an illustration above , you can gain admission into NAUB to study your preferred choice of course despite not listed above.
Hope this is now well understood? as you can see, calculating NAUB post UTME screening aggregate cut off mark is very simple, all that is required from candidates is to work harder to get a good UTME and post UTME score in order to stand a better chance of gaining admission.
