The university of Benin is one of the most sought after schools for O’level students, many attribute this to the beauty of the school, some say its the life style of the students while others are of the opinion that the university is meant for serious minded students, which ever the case may be, the most important thing is to gain admission genuinely into the school either via JAMB or Direct Entry method.
In this post our mission is to teach students who participated in this year’s UTME on how to calculate UNIBEN’s 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 University of Benin is a well respected school and highly valued in the Nigerian education sector, the most recent survey shows that 30% of UTME registrants select UNIBEN as their most 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 UNIBEN aggregate score, he followings are involved;
- UNIBEN JAMB Cut off mark
- UNIBEN post UTME score
In some schools, WAEC and NECO results are needed when calculating the aggregate cut off mark but UNIBEN 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 except for courses like Law, English Language, ISD (International Studies and Diplomacy), French and other Language courses.
UNIBEN JAMB Cut off mark
Before calculating your UNIBEN aggregate cut off mark for admission, you must ensure you score up to UNIBEN 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 UNIBEN. The university is one of the few universities in Nigeria that their cut off mark is still pegged at 200 even after JAMB directed that all schools drop their cut off points. The management insisted on leaving it at 200 because of the number of UTME registrants that come for post UTME every academic session as this would cut down the excesses.
So before calculating your UNIBEN’s 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 University of Benin.
UNIBEN Post UTME 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 UNIBEN post UTME screening news in order not to miss out.
In calculating UNIBEN 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 UNIBEN. 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, UNIBEN 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.
Courses like Philosophy, English Language, Education related courses, Sociology and Anthropology, these courses 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 UNIBEN 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 UNIBEN 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 UNIBEN aggregate cut off mark or score now lets go proper into how to calculate UNIBEN aggregate score so candidates can start calculating their aggregate cut off mark as soon as they see their JAMB and post UTME score.
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 UNIBEN’s Aggregate Score And Cut Off Mark For 2021/2022 Academic Session
Learning 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 UNIBEN’s Aggregate Score:
- UNIBEN Aggregate JAMB Score = 50%
- UNIBEN 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 John scored 250 in his UTME and scores 70 in his post UTME, Mr John’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 John’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 UNIBEN’s Aggregate score for Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering?
- UNIBEN Aggregate Score for Law
- What is UNIBEN’s Aggregate Score for Medicine and Surgery?
- What is UNIBEN’s Aggregate Score for Nursing?
- UNIBEN’s 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 UNIBEN to study your preferred choice of course despite not listed above.
Hope this is now well understood? as you can see, calculating UNIBEN’s 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.
