How To Properly Calculate your YABATECH Post-UTME Aggregate Score

Many students have asked me to teach them how YABATECH calculates its aggregate. If you are one of those curious ones, then this post is for you.

Must Read

Do you want to learn how to calculate YABATECH aggregate score for admission? YABATECH uses a grading system that involves summing up Olevel result, UTME result, and post UTME score. In this post, I’ll show you how to properly calculate your own score so that you can plan well ahead for your admission.

YABATECH uses the 50-30-15-5 grading system. If you don’t know what that means, don’t worry. Just keep reading.

How YABATECH calculates your aggregate

The table below summarises the grading system.

UTME 50%
Olevel 15%
Post-UTME 30%
Bonus 5%
Total 100%

The above explains the grading system I was talking about earlier. JAMB takes 50 marks of the aggregate, Olevel 15, post-UTME 30, and a 5% bonus. Yes, there’s a bonus and it depends a lot on your “no of sittings”.

Let us now learn how to do the following:

Step 1: calculate Your JAMB aggregate

There are two methods of calculating your JAMB aggregate. Both methods are actually the same, depending on your maths skills.

Method 1: Your JAMB aggregate is calculated simply by dividing your score by 8. That is your score/8.

Method 2: You can divide your score by 400 and multiply it by 8. That is score/400 * 8.

Whether you are using method 1 or 2, you will arrive at the same answer. Let’s continue.

formula for calculating the JAMB aggregate

For example, a student who wants to study Mass Communication has a JAMB score of 256. Her JAMB aggregate is: 256/400 * 50 = 32

This student now has a JAMB aggregate of 32 out of a possible 50. Not bad, is it?

Let’s take a look at the next one.

Step 2: Calculate Olevel Aggregate

To do this, you add up your relevant subject’s points. Let me tell you what I mean.

For admission, YABATECH only requires 5 WAEC/NECO/NABTEB subjects that are relevant to your course of study.

For our student that wants to study Mass Communication, her relevant subjects are Mathematics, English, Government, Literature, and Economics. You can check the JAMB brochure to find the relevant subjects for your course.

Points attached to each Olevel grade

For YABATECH admission A1 = 3.0 points, B2 = 2.5 points, B3 = 2.0, C4 = 1.5, C5 = 1.0 and C6 = 0.5 points.

Grade Point
A1 3.0
B2 2.5
B3 2.0
C4 1.5
C5 1.0
C6 0.5

For example, in addition to scoring 256 in JAMB, our student also has the following grades in her 5 important WAEC subjects:

English C6. Mathematics A1, Literature C6, Government B2, and Economics B3 as shown below.

Yabatech level points

Let us calculate her total points: 0.5 + 3.0 + 0.5 + 2.5 + 2.0 = 8.5

She has 8.5 out of possible 15 points. This shows how important Olevel results are.

You can use the above method to calculate yours as well.

Step 3: Add Post UTME score

YABATECH post-utme takes 30% of the aggregate score.

The CBT post UTME questions are 40 in number and they contain the following:

  • 15 Mathematics questions
  • 15 English questions
  • 10 General questions


To calculate your post UTME question, you will divide your score by 40 and multiply it by 30. That is score/40 * 30

Note that you do not need to do this yourself. Yabatech will handle the calculation for you and then release the final score to you. I only wanted to show you how they calculate your post utme score.

To check your post utme score, please visit YABATECH Post UTME result page

Step 4: Number of sittings grading (Bonus)

The last 5% in the aggregate is awarded to students based on their number of Olevel sittings. A candidate with only one sitting in WAEC/NECO/NABATECH gets a full 5%. On the other hand. a candidate with two sittings takes 2.5%. In other words, this system is in favour of the former than the latter.

Please note that no Nigerian Polytechnic or University accepts more than two Olevel sittings.

Our Mass communication student above has only one sitting. Hence, she bags a 5% bonus.

JAMB Score Grade 32%
CBT Score 22%
Olevel Result 8.5%
No. of Sitting Grade 5%
Aggregate 67.5%

So that’s it, ladies and gentlemen!

In summary, Olevel + UTME + Post UTME + Bonus = aggregate score

I hope you now understand how to calculate YABATECH aggregate score.
