Do you want to learn how to Calculate Yabatech Aggregate Score? If you’re applying for Yabatech full-time program in 2023, then learning to do this should be one of your priorities. This will help you determine your chances of beating the cutoff mark for your desired course.
How to Properly Calculate Yabatech Aggregate
Yaba College of Technology (Yabatech) uses an average score to determine applicants’ admission into its various programs. This score is calculated based on the following:
- JAMB Score
- O’level grades
- Online Post UTME scores
- Bonus Point
The JAMB aggregate for each applicant is calculated by dividing their JAMB score by 8.
To illustrate, a candidate who scored 200 in JAMB would have an aggregate of 25. Similarly, a student who scored 250 in JAMB would have an aggregate of 31.25. JAMB takes a total percentage of 50%. I hope this is clear.
Each candidate’s O’level aggregate is calculated using the grading system below:
Note that you will only need to calculate your aggregate for the five subjects that are relevant to your chosen program. For example, if you are applying for Mechanical Engineering, you will need to calculate your aggregate for Mathematics, English Language, Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. Please check the relevant subjects for your course here.
Yabatech Olevel takes 15% of the aggregate score.
Yabatech accepts two O’level results. That is a combination of two WAEC results, two NECO results, or one WAEC result and one NECO result. However, you cannot combine NABTEB with either WAEC or NECO.
Online Post-UTME score.
The Post-UTME score is the total number of marks a candidate scores in the Computer-Based Test (CBT). It accounts for 30% of the aggregate score. You don’t need to divide this score by any number, unlike JAMB. If you score 24/30, then your post-UTME aggregate is 24.
The online test consists of 3 subjects: Mathematics, English, and General Paper. Mathematics and English each have 15 questions, while the General paper has 10 questions. This totals 40 questions. The test is 30 minutes long and has strict rules.
Yabatech offers extra 5 marks to all applicants. However, there is a condition: only applicants who present one O’level sitting will receive the full 5 marks. Applicants who present two O’level results will receive 2.5 marks.
Your aggregate score is calculated by adding your JAMB aggregate, O’level aggregate, Post-UTME score, and bonus score.
Consider a girl with a JAMB aggregate of 22.5 and an O’level score of 13.0. She sat for the Yabatech online Post UTME and scored 23 out of 30. She also received 5 marks for presenting a single O’level result.
Her screening result = 22.0 + 13.0 + 23 + 5 = 63.50 (be sure to round your scores up to 2 decimal places)
You can also check your aggregate score on the Yabatech website. Just enter your JAMB registration number and mobile number/surname to have access to it.
It’s important to know your aggregate score before Yabatech releases its admission list. This way, you would be able to compare your score with previous departmental cutoff marks. Therefore, it is an important factor in determining your chances of admission into Yabatech.
Remember that this post is for only full-time applicants. Unlike full-time, Part-time programs do not require JAMB. It is designed for candidates who have busy work schedules.
