This university uses a Composite Grading System that takes into consideration the following:

• Your O’Level result (WAEC or NECO)
• Post-UTME Result

O’Level Points

This is based on ONLY five core subjects: English, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. A1, B2, B3, C4, C5 and C6 grade are rated as 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 point respectively, all other grades are rated as 0 point. Thus, the maximum obtainable Total O’Level points is thus 30pts.

O’Level composite percentage =Â Total O’Level Points multiplied by 2/3.

UTME composite percentageÂ = Total UTME Score divided by 8

Post-UTME composite percentageÂ = Post-UTME score multiplied by 0.3

COMPOSITEÂ = Sum of all three composite percentages

IMPORTANT NOTES:

• Where Agriculture is accepted for a pass in Biology, the grade of Agriculture does not reflect on the O’Level point.
• Where a candidate present 2 results, the calculation is based on the better grade for eachÂ  of the core subject. However, 1 point is deducted from the total score obtained.
