How To Calculate OAU Aggregate Score
By now, you should already know what your aggregate score is as it will be on your admission portal i.e oauife.edu.ng
The system has been programmed to calculate your JAMB, O’level and Post UTME score over 100.
Funny enough, I still see some aspirants who still claim that their aggregate score should be more than what OAU portal is showing, others don’t even know how it is done.
Now, I will quickly show you before I move to the main thing which is the departmental cut off marks for 2019.
Since the introduction of JAMB CAPS, every school is required to make JAMB score weigh at least 50% of the total aggregate score of their candidates.
The Obafemi Awolowo University has employed a 50:40:10 JAMB, Post UTME and O’level system in its aggregate system.
JAMB carries 50%, Post UTME carries 40% and O’level is 10% of the total aggregate score. OAU uses O’level as part of their aggregate unlike UI.
So, a good O’level result will help you get a higher aggregate score in OAU.
See the steps to calculate your OAU aggregate score below:
- Divide your JAMB score (out of 400) by 8
- Post UTME score is over 40 (10 for each subject – 3 main subjects in UTME + Aptitude test instead of Engllish)
- Grade your O’level score over 10
- Add the results in 1, 2 and 3 above.
- That is your aggregate score
OAU O’level Grading System 2021
- A1 – 2.0 points
- B2 – 1.8 points
- B3 – 1.6 points
- C4 – 1.4 points
- C5 – 1.2 points
- C6 – 1.0 points
If you score 280 in JAMB, 26 in Post UTME and 1 A1, 2 B2 and 2 B3 in O’level, your aggregate is calculated as seen below.
- JAMB: 280/8 = 35
- Post UTME: 26
- O’level: 2+1.8+1.8+1.6+1.6 = 8.8
- TOTAL AGGREGARE SCORE = 35 + 26 + 8.8 = 69.8
That is how to calculate OAU Post UTME cut off mark aggregate score.
Now, let’s move to the final part.
If I Meet The Departmental Cut Off Mark In OAU, Is Admission Sure?
So, an aspirant asked me this question and I have decided to post in here for the benefit of others.
- You are yet to upload your O’level result
- You have the wrong JAMB subject combination
In fact, there is no age restriction in OAU for now.
As long as you meet the departmental cut off mark, go and start packing your load.
Here’s how departmental cut off marks work
If OAU wants to admit 140 students for Pharmacy and let’s say 50 will be admitted on merit (others from Pre-degree, catchment and ELDs).
The merit cut off mark for Pharmacy for that year will be the 50th highest aggregate score among Pharmacy aspirants that year.
So, if you meet the merit cut off mark, you are already part of the 50 aspirants that have been selected for admission.
Hope you understand?
The departmental cut off marks for 2020/2021 will be released later this year after the Post UTME examination has been written and the results are released.
