How To Calculate UNIZIK Aggregate Score 2024/2025 Session

Looking for information on how to calculate UNIZIK aggregate Score? Then you are in the right place.

Nnamdi Azikiwe University widely regarded as UNIZIK is one of the best universities in Nigeria and one of the most popular federal universities located in the south-east of the country. The university just like many other federal universities receives tens of thousands of applications every year and just like many other federal universities, only about 15% to 20% of these candidates will gain admission.

This is why it’s quite important for every candidate to know how to calculate UNIZIK aggregate score to check if he/she was able to meet the departmental cut off mark. UNIZIK will only consider candidates who are able to meet the departmental cut off mark for admission, however, some candidates who are unable to meet the cut off mark for their preferred course will be pushed to other departments.

It is best to avoid this by knowing beforehand the departmental cut off mark to ensure you meet the target.

Another note of warning is that you might score up to the required JAMB cut off mark and post UTME score and still not gain admission. This rarely happens though but when it does, the most probable cause is when there are too many candidates for a course with lesser admission slot hence only the best candidates will be selected so take note.

UNIZIK’s formula for calculating the aggregate Score is quite different from other universities. While other universities round off points to 100%, UNIZIK rounds off points of candidates to 400%.

To calculate your aggregate cut off mark, is quite easy as UNIZIK’s formula is simple.

Note: Before going ahead with the calculation process, it is important to know that while UNIZIK has different cut off marks for its departments, candidates who score below 50% in their Post UME will not be considered for admission no matter how well they perform in JAMB. This is true for departments under the Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences. You will also be required to reach the JAMB cut off mark of 200 before being considered for admission.

To calculate you would need to know your JAMB score and your Post UME score. While JAMB gives a total of 400 marks, UNIZIK Post UME only awards 100 marks. Once you have gotten the scores handy you can proceed with the calculation.

To calculate your UNIZIK aggregate Score,

Simply multiply your UNIZIK Post UME score by 4

Add up the result with your JAMB score.

Then divide it by 2 to get your aggregate cut off mark.


JAMB = 400%

Post UME = 100%

(JAMB + Post UME x 4) / 2 = 400%


To better understand the calculation process, you can take at a look at the example below. Assuming a candidate named Mr. Zik has a score of 240 in his JAMB and 60 in his Post UME. His UNIZIK aggregate cut off mark could be;

JAMB = 240

Post UME = 60 x 4 = 480

(240 + 240) / 2 = 240

Total = 240

Therefore, Mr. Zik’s aggregate cut off mark is 240

UNIZIK Departmental Cut Off Mark

Your aggregate cut off mark will determine if you meet up with the departmental cut off mark of your preferred course and thus determine your chances of admission. UNIZIK releases a different departmental cut off mark and admission criteria every year which every candidate must meet before being considered for admission.

It is important for every student to know the departmental cut off mark beforehand to ensure that they plan ahead and score higher points which will increase their chances of gaining admission.

The candidate in the example, Mr. Zik will be unable to get admitted to study a course like Medicine and Surgery in UNIZIK because the department cut off mark is higher than his aggregate cut off mark. Instead, he will be pushed to other departments.
