How to calculate YABATECH cut-off mark

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”.

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.

Also Read: YABATECH 2022 School fees for Part-time, Full-time, OND, and HND, Freshers, and Returning students

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:

See Also: YABATECH 2022 Registration Procedure For New Full Time Students (OND)

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

Related:

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

yabatech post utme score

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.

Yabatech image

Do you want to find out about the Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH) school fees? There has been an increase in the school fee over the last few years due to the recession. Hence, it is important you are up to date so that you can plan accordingly.

YABATECH has been the best polytechnic in Nigeria for many years now. No wonder they receive many applications every year.

In this post, we’ll show you, not only the updated school fees but how to actually make payment. If you have already been offered admission, then you might want to read YABATECH online registration and e-screening.

Please note that the school fees listed below do not include the acceptance fees.

YABATECH Full-time OND school fees

The table below shows several YABATECH OND courses and their respective fees.

Note: If you’re using a mobile phone, scroll horizontally to view the full table

Courses OND 1 OND 2
ND Accountancy ₦39,500 ₦25,500
ND Business Administration ₦39,500 ₦25,500
ND Banking and Finance ₦39,500 ₦25,500
ND Marine Engineering Technology ₦44,500 ₦30,500
ND Mechatronics Engineering Technology ₦44,500 ₦30,500
ND Mass Communication ₦44,500 ₦30,500
ND Nutrition and Dietetics ₦44,500 ₦30,500
ND Textile Technology ₦44,500 ₦30,500
ND Statistics ₦44,500 ₦30,500

ND Metallurgical Engineering ₦44,500 ₦30,500
ND Mechanical Engineering ₦44,500 ₦30,500
ND Industrial Maintenance Engineering ₦44,500 ₦30,500
ND Industrial Design – Fashion ₦44,500 ₦30,500

ND Computer Science ₦44,500 ₦30,500
ND Civil Engineering ₦44,500 ₦30,500
ND Building Technology ₦44,500 ₦30,500

Essentially, students studying science-related courses tend to pay a high fee than their non-science counterparts. This isn’t far-fetched; science students do practicals and ultimately use more resources.

Therefore, we can conclude that the school fees fall within the range of ₦39,500 and ₦44,500 (depending on the course) for new students. Similarly, returning students have a range of ₦25,500 – ₦30,500.

In addition to the school fees, Part-time OND students will be paying a sum of ₦10,000 for JAMB Regularization.

What is JAMB Regularization

To understand this, remember that part-time students don’t need JAMB results to secure admission. As a result, they don’t have JAMB registration numbers or JAMB admission letters. In other words, they (part-time students) do not have JAMB profiles. This makes it impossible for part-time OND students to cross to full-time HND. This is why they need JAMB Regularization to fix that.

I hope that was clear enough. Let’s move on

YABATECH school fees for Full-time HND

The table below is for YABATECH HND courses and their respective fees.

YABATECH Online Screening

What is YABATECH online screening?

In simple terms, it is the uploading of vita documents on the YABATECH portal for verification. These documents are those we have listed earlier. Candidates must take responsibility for the documents they are uploading. Resist the temptation of presenting fake information. The school management may forfeit your admission. Also, be sure the documents are original copies.

How to upload documents for E-screening

  • visit the YABATECH application portal at http://portal.yabatech.edu.ng/portal/
  • click on new applicant
  • sign in with your JAMB registration number and your surname.
  • Click on “E Screening”. This will take you to a new page.
  • Upload clear and valid documents with a maximum size of 300kb.
  • Ensure your names are consistent across all documents.
  • Print your clearance slip.

Please note that the school will also schedule a physical screening and will be requiring these same sets of documents. Be sure they are exactly the same

YABATECH Biodata form

The biodata simply contains information about a candidate. It includes details like name, address, next of kin, phone number, state of origin, and so on. To update and print the biodata form, please follow the steps below:

How to generate your YABATECH Matriculation Number

Note that only candidates who have completed their payments (Acceptance and School fees) are eligible for a Matric number. That said, to get your matric number, click on the “Get Matric” in the “Get your Matric number” option. That’s it!

How to get YABATECH Admission Letter

It is worth knowing that you will be adding two admission letters to your collections. One from JAMB and the other from the school management. To get your YABATECH admission letter, follow the steps below:

  • visit the YABATECH application portal at http://portal.yabatech.edu.ng/portal/.
  • Click on “new applicant”.
  • sign in with your JAMB registration number and your surname.
  • Click on “Admission Letter”.
  • Print it out.

Where to get your Birth Certificate

In Nigeria, It only takes about 2 months after birth before a birth certificate is issued to parents by the National Population Commission via the hospital. This certificate contains your name, your date of birth, and so on. Hence, there is a good chance you have yours somewhere in the house. Look for it.

If you cannot find it, however, don’t lose hope. Obtaining a new one is super easy and won’t cost you much.

The body of the Government that issues a birth certificate is the National Population Commission (NPC). You can find them in many places including, Hospitals, Local Government Councils, NPC centers, Health centers, and so on.

The easiest way to get a new Birth certificate is to visit the Local Government Authority closest to you. You may be asked for a sworn affidavit from a court before you can get a new birth certificate.

Please note that YABATECH isn’t accepting an affidavit for screening.

Where can you get a Reference/Attestation letter?

If you are a religious person, you can easily get your letter of reference from your religious leader (Pastor/Imam). This letter must be written with the Church or Mosque’s letter-headed paper, containing the necessary information.

You can also get a reference letter from a Lawyer, a Civil servant, or people of a certain rank in the society. This shouldn’t cost you a penny.

Where to obtain your Original O’level results/certificate

We need to make emphasis the fact that YABATECH only requires your original result for screening. Having said this, getting your original result isn’t as difficult as it may sound.

WAEC (WASSCE and GCE) candidates can obtain their results from the WAEC office closest to them. Similarly, NECO candidates are to visit the nearest NECO office to collect theirs.

on the other hand, to collect your certificate, please return to the school where you wrote the respective examination.

So, that’s it, guys!

I think we have covered basically everything you need to get you started with your YABATECH registration and screening. You really don’t need a third party to do any of these things for you. If you have a personal computer, you shouldn’t have a problem doing it yourself.

However, you may seek help from a reliable person if you find things overwhelming.

if you have more questions, please leave them in the comment section.

If you applied for admission at the University of Lagos (UNILAG) for the 2021/2022 academic session, you can check your departmental cut-off mark in this post.

Not too long ago, UNILAG conducted its annual post UTME for candidates who chose it as their first choice and who scored a minimum of 200 in their UTME.

You will notice that there is a general increase in the cut-off mark this year in relation to previous years. We are going to talk about the reason in another post.

What happens if I don’t score up to the UNILAG cutoff marks?

If you don’t score as high as the merit cutoff marks, you will not get admission for that particular course.

How do I know if UNILAG has given me admission?

You will need to be checking your admission status on the JAMB CAPS. You see, JAMB now has the authority to give admission to candidates as well as issue them their admission letters. To access your CAPS, visit the JAMB CAPS website. And, if you can now access your CAPS, you may want to read this article on the possible reasons.

I exceeded the UNILAG cutoff mark, but I’m yet to be given admission

There has to be something you are doing wrong. It is possible you have not uploaded your O’level results on the JAMB CAPS. And, if you don’t upload your result, forget about the admission for this year. To do this, you may want to read our guide on how to upload your O’level results on the JAMB portal.

national open univeristy of nigeria

Are you interested in seeking admission at the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN)?

NOUN, founded in 2001, is a Distance Learning Institute (DLI) with over 500,000 students nationwide, the largest of any tertiary institution in Nigeria.

In this post, I’m going to walk you through the undergraduate admission procedure, as well as the requirements.

Before we proceed, please note that the National Open University of Nigeria is different from a traditional University. Here, there are no classes, no lecturers, no class reps, etc. That is the whole point of DLI. You study from distance.

Hence, if you are looking for a school with classrooms and all the nice stuff, you should look elsewhere. NOUN isn’t for you.

With that said, let’s proceed.

  • this will redirect you to the payment page where you will pay an application fee of Five Thousand Naira Only (N5,000.00) through the Remita. To do this, generate your RRR code and proceed to the bank to pay. Don’t forget to ask for payment reciept at the bank. You will be needing it for your screening.
  • after payment, visit the undergraduate page via https://www.admissions.nouonline.net/zzadmform_ug.php and confirm your payment. To achieve this, enter your RRR code and select your programme. Click on “proceed” afterwards.

You don’t have access to your JAMB CAPS? This is what you must do

0
jamb logo

Are you having a hard time accessing your JAMB CAPS?

Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) is a program launched in 2017 by JAMB for assisting students and tertiary institutions in making admission processes less stressful. I hope that’s clear enough.

It is called JAMB CAPS because it is owned/designed by JAMB.

We have received messages from students telling us they are finding it difficult to login. A minority of these students don’t even know how to go about the whole CAPS thing. If you belong to any of the two categories above, then this post is for you?

To accept/monitor an admission, every student must have access to their JAMB CAPS. Otherwise, they will forfeit the admission.

Reasons you don’t have access to JAMB CAPS

1. You did not register for JAMB

If you don’t register for JAMB, you cannot have a JAMB CAPS account. It’s just as simple as that. I understand that younger students may want to try to feed their curiosity by attempting to log in or sign up for an account on the JAMB portal.

But, that is not how it works. The JAMB portal is for students who have partaken in the UTME. In other words, you will have to register for JAMB before you can have access to JAMB CAPS.

2. You are either entering the wrong Email or Password

Do you know what happens when you’re trying to log in to your Facebook or Instagram account with the wrong user ID? Exactly, no entry. This is a general fact.

Likewise, if you enter the wrong email or password into the JAMB login page, you will be denied access. This happens either because you are spelling things wrongly or you simply cannot remember your password

What’s the solution to incorrect login details?

  • check for wrong spellings, letter for letter, and make the necessary corrections.
  • generate a new password. To do this, visit the JAMB portal via https://portal.jamb.gov.ng/efacility./ and click on forgot password. Enter your correct email address and send. You will receive a mail. Click on the link and create a new pasword. Return to the login page, enter your email and the new password. You should be able to gain access to your CAPS now.

3. You are visiting the wrong CAPS link

Another reason you might not have access to your JAMB CAPS is that you are not on the right login page. You are entering your correct email and password, but you are visiting the wrong link.

You see, JAMB has different CAPS pages depending on your status. Below are the 4 major JAMB CAPS links and only the first one is for you

  1. Student CAPS page – the correct link
  2. Admission Officer CAPS page – ignore
  3. Head of Institution CAPS page – ignore
  4. Desk Officer CAPS page – ignore

If you are reading this post right now, you are most likely a student. Hence, visit the first and ignore the other; they are for the staff.

See Also: How to check Admission Status on JAMB CAPS in 2021

4. You have not registered your email with JAMB

From my experience, this is one of the most common reasons students don’t have access to their CAPS. No matter how many times you try, you won’t be able to complete the process.

Note: Do not mistake email registration with JAMB profile. JAMB has already created a profile for you from the moment you registered for JAMB.

My suggestion is for you to visit a nearby CBT center and sort it out. It will not take you up to 20 minutes

The only thing you can do by yourself, however, is to generate a confirmation code.

How to create a JAMB account/Account with your email address

  • Visit https://portal.jamb.gov.ng/efacility./ and click on Create Account.
  • Enter your Email Address, phone number, etc, and click submit.
  • you will recieve a confirmation code in your mail. Copy this code from your mail and paste it in the confirmation column on the JAMB page.
  • if successful, a sign up form field will appear in the next page. Fill your details in this form and create a password.
  • Click on “Sign up”.

Notice that you will be redirected to an error page with a message saying:

THE PAGE YOU ARE LOOKING FOR MIGHT HAVE BEEN REMOVED, HAD ITS NAME CHANGED, OR HAD PROCESSING ERROR OR IS TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE.

This further proves my point that you cannot create a JAMB on your own. The page has been removed. The solution is to go to a CBT center. That way, the whole process will be faster and less arduous.

You can either start from the beginning at a CBT center or present your confirmation code to whoever is in charge. That way, they can continue from wherever you had stopped.

Can I access my JAMB CAPS without my email?

Yes, you can access your JAMB CAPS using only your JAMB registration number and your phone number. However, to do this, you will need to download the CAPS Mobile App.

CAPS Mobile App was designed by JAMB to enable candidates to monitor and track their admission via their mobile phones. The Mobile APP comes with the following unique features:

  • Ability to view profile details
  • viewing/confirmation of O’level details
  • Accept / Reject admission.

It is available on the google play store and has over 100,000+ downloads.

To use the app, you do not need to provide your email or a password. Instead, you need to enter your JAMB registration number and phone number. That’s all.

CAPS mobile app

The downside of using the CAPS Mobile APP

The app looks abandoned as it has not been updated since 2019, over 2 years ago. An app of that nature may have some bugs in it. Hence, I don’t recommend it for now.

What are the functions of the JAMB CAPS?

The CAPS was developed to do the following:

  • automate the admissions process into the University/Polytechnic/Colleges of Education.
  • put an end to multiple admissions. The days when candidates get admission into two or more school at once are now in the past.
  • check JAMB admission status
  • allows students to confirm if they want the admission or not. You accept it if you want it or reject it if you don’t.
  • issue letter of admission to students.
  • assists candidates in uploading/confirming their O’level results.

Can I sign up for an account on JAMB CAPS?

No, you cannot sign up for an account all by yourself. An attempt can only take you so far, but then, you will need to visit a CBT center.

Is JAMB CAPS Activated for 2021?

Yes, it is and candidates can now log in to either check their admission status or confirm their admission.

Will I still gain admission without using JAMB CAPS?

Nope, you won’t. The authority to give admission has been handed to JAMB by most, if not all tertiary institutions in Nigeria. It is JAMB who offers you your admission as well as your admission letter. JAMB keeps records of your O’level results in its database system.

In other words, if you don’t want to lose your admission, you had better start monitoring your admission through your CAPS. You may forfeit your admission otherwise.

How to check Admission Status on JAMB CAPS in 2021

0
jamb logo

Do you want to learn how to check admission status on the JAMB portal?

One of the biggest mistakes students make is thinking their school of choice will release an admission list for them. They therefore completely ignore the need to access the JAMB CAPS.

The truth is that JAMB is now in control of everything. In other words, candidates must accept their admission offer through the JAMB CAPS, or else, they will forfeit it. However, before confirming your admission, you must constantly be checking your admission status.

What is Admission Status?

Admission Status is a term used to refer to your position or state with respect to admission. This is almost synonymous with your relationship status: You are either single or married. Clear enough?

So, when it comes to admission status, you are either admitted or not. This is where JAMB comes in.

Why check admission status on JAMB?

The answer is simple. A lot of Universities/Polytechnics/Colleges no longer publish names of admitted students on their portals. They have bestowed that responsible on JAMB. It is now JAMB who decides who gets admission on not, based on certain requirements like confirmation of Olevel results, among others.

Simply put, to confirm if you have been offered admission into a recognized institution in Nigeria, you have to go through the JAMB CAPS.

But, this is a good development, right?

Gone are the days when students would have to visit their schools to check if they have been offered admission.

Nowadays though, you only have to check your Admission status with a single click of a button, in less than 10 seconds. And, we have JAMB to thank for creating the CAPS(Central Admission Processing System).

Functions of the JAMB CAPS

How to check admission status on the JAMB CAPS

All mobile phone users should follow these steps using a chrome browser.

  • Enter your email and password. If you don’t remember your password, click on forgot password and generate a new one. If you don’t have an account at all, then you may want to visit the closest CBT center.
  • On the new page, scroll to the bottom and click on Check Admission Status.
Click on check admission status
  • on the next page, click on Check Admission Status once again

If you have not been given admission yet, you will see a message like the one below

What does “Sorry you have not been given admission yet” mean?

It means your school has not started given admission at that time. You will have to check back. Once the news is out that your school is giving admission, you may then return to check your admission status.

What does “Admission in progress” mean?

If you see the “Admission in progress” message, it means your institution has commenced giving admission. In this case, you can hope you get lucky. If your school gives admission based on merit, then you have nothing to worry about.

Can I login to JAMB CAPS with JAMB registration number?

Yes, you can log in with only your JAMB registration number. However, this is only possible with the JAMB CAPS mobile. The JAMB CAPS mobile is available on the google play store. It is trusted by over 100,000 users. This app enables you to access your CAPS using on your JAMB registration number. Additionally, you can accept/reject admission with it.

Can I accept admission without using JAMB CAPS?

Once again, you cannot accept or reject admission without going through JAMB. JAMB now has the final say regarding students’ admission. Candidates who do not accept their admission on the JAMB portal will forfeit their admission for the year.

Why can’t I access my JAMB CAPS?

If you cannot access your JAMB CAPS, then the possible reasons are:

  1. You have entered a wrong username/password. And if that is the case, you will need to reset your password. Start by clicking on forgot password and then enter your email address. A link to generate a new password will be sent to your mail. Follow this link and create a new password.
  2. You have not registered your email on the JAMB portal. The solution to this is to visit the nearest CBT center and get it sorted out. It doesn’t take much time and it’s almost free of charge.

Can JAMB offer me two admissions at once?

No, JAMB only offers one admission to each student. The days when students will be given admission in UNILAG, TASUED, and LASPOTECH at the same time are long gone. However, in the event that candidates reject their admission to a particular school on the JAMB CAPS, they will have the opportunity for another.

What happens If I don’t accept admission on the JAMB CAPS?

If you don’t accept your admission on the JAMB CAPS, either intentionally or unknowingly, you are going to miss out on admission for the year.

The Best Universities in Nigeria 2021: UNILAG vs UI

best universities in nigeria

Are you having a hard time deciding which one is more suitable for you between UNILAG and UI? Trust me when I say you’re not alone.

In a country like Nigeria where there is no stability in the University rankings, choosing the best University to attend can be a quite tricky and daunting effort.

The best University today may be in the 9th position today. That is why we need to approach things from a different standpoint, rather than depend on just rankings, especially when it comes to UNILAG vs UI.

UNILAG (University of Lagos) and UI (University of Ibadan) are among the top-rated Universities in Nigeria, in African, and in the world. Picking one of these giants can be extremely difficult as one is known to be “purely academic” while the other is said to be a mix of social life and academic.

We will present you with some of the unique similarities and differences between both Universities, including their fees, rankings, ease of admission, and so on. The final decisions, however, will be yours make.

The University of Lagos (UNILAG)

Both schools have very high status, especially in Nigeria. Gaining admission into either of them is a matter of pride for any Nigerian or foreign student. 

So, which University is better between UNILAG and UI?

Given the fact that both schools are almost tied to our head-to-head, it is difficult to pick the better one. However, we are going to consider things from different categories:

UNILAG and UI Acceptance Rates

With a low acceptance rate of 15%, it is very difficult to get into UNILAG. What 15% acceptance translates to is that out of every 100,000 applicants, only 15000 students can get lucky for admission.

UNILAG is the University with the highest number of applications every year. At least 1 out of every 10 candidates wants to study in UNILAG. Considering its landmass, however, the university cannot admit everyone.

On the other hand, the University of Ibadan has an acceptance rate of 45%. This means that for every 100,000 applicants, 45000 students will be given admission. Likewise, if 60,000 students apply for admission into the institution, 27,000 will be offered admission.

Conclusion
On the basis of the acceptance rate, we can conclude that UI is a better option than UNILAG. The University of Ibadan wins in this regard.

Comparing UNILAG and UI School Fees

From the school fees perspective, there is little to no difference between the two Universities. As a matter of fact, Federal Universities are the best Universities in Nigeria when it comes to low school fees.

The total school fees for all fresh students in UNILAG are N66,000 for science N56,0000 for non-science students. Returning students, however, are to pay N19,000 (science) and N14,000 (non-science).

On the other hand, the UI school fees for new students differ from department to department. But on average, the school fee for a fresh student is N57,250 while for returning students, it is N20,650.

The school fees for both schools is easily affordable compared to many other schools, especially the private institution. More on this in another article.

Conclusion
The school fees for both institutions are too close to determine an admission preference. Hence, no winner for this category.

Admission Requirements for UNILAG and UI

Both the University of Lagos and the University of Ibadan organize post UTME screening for their applicants.

  • They accept a minimum of 5 O’level credits in relevant subjects, including Mathematics and English Language. While UI accepts 2 O’level Sittings, UNILAG does not.
  • The JAMB cut-off marks for both institution is 200.
Aggregate UNILAG UI
JAMB 50% 50%
O’level 20%
Post UTME 30% 50%

The University of Ibadan does not use the point grade system, whereas UNILAG does.

How UNILAG calculates its aggregate

The formula is O’level + UTME + Post UTME = 100%

A1 = 4.0 points, B2 = 3.6 points, B3 = 3.2 points, C4 = 2.8 points, C5 = 2.4 points, C6 = 2.0 points. This makes up 20% of the aggregate score.

UTME: 400/8 = 50%

Post UTME = 30% (No division)

The UNILAG post UTME is an online test consisting of 40 questions: 15 Mathematics, 15 English Language, and 10 General paper. The test duration is 30mins.

How UI calculates its aggregate

The formula is UTME + Post UTME = 100%

The University of Ibadan Uses only the UTME and Post UTME for its aggregate. It requires 5 Olevel credits in relevant subjects, but it does not use a point grade system.

UTME: 400/8 = 50

Post UTME: post UTME score/2

Imagine a candidate that scores 240 in JAMB and 70 in the UI post UTME. To calculate the student’s aggregate, we will do the following:

UTME: 240/8 = 30

Post UTME: 70/2 = 35

Aggregate score: 30 + 35 =65

Like UNILAG, UI post UTME is also an online test consisting of 100 questions. The subject combination is the same as your JAMB’s. There are a total of 100 questions for a duration of 1 hour 30mins.

Conclusion
As far as Post UTME goes, the decision as to which school is a better option depends entirely on the student. However, UI offers the benefit of admission to candidates with two O’level sittings, unlike UNILAG. In other words, you can combine two WAEC/NECO results for admission into the University of Ibadan.

Social life in UNILAG vs UI

All work and no play make everyone dull, not just Jack. To succeed in many areas of life, including academics, one has to combine hard work with a sprinkle of social activities.

Most people, especially those watching from distance, think the University of Ibadan is all about studying, studying, and studying. This is not true. There’s a really wide variety of possible social experiences at UI, and these depend majorly on who you end up being friends with.

The word UNILAG, on the other hand, is now almost synonymous with “Fun”. When it comes to social life, UNILAG has an edge over every other school in Nigeria, not just UI alone. Well, why is this possible? there is only one word to describe the reason: Lagos.

Lagos is a city with wonderful beaches, skyscrapers, amazing parks, best entertainment, you name it. The strength of Unilag isn’t the school itself but where the school is.

In UNILAG, you can spread your wings and be ‘You’. The institution has a good balance of work and fun.

Note: By social life, we don’t mean doing drugs and joining cultism. We are talking about a healthy life.

Conclusion
If you are looking to mix hard work with academics, then UNILAG is the school for you. UNILAG wins

Oops! This has been a long post and we are going to be updating it when need be.

Final Words

So far, we have made comparisons between two of the Universities in Nigeria today. We’ve looked at everything from their rankings, cost of study, acceptance rate, and social life.

Academic-wise, you can pick any of the institutions as they both offer a good academic environment. Their lecturers are well exposed too.

If you want to mix social life with academics, then UNILAG is the better option.

When it comes to admission, the University of Ibadan is easier to get into than UNILAG.

The University of Ilorin has released the cut-off mark for its various departmental courses for the 2021/2022 admission.

Making UNILORIN your First choice during JAMB registration is only half of the job. You have to ensure you meet the University’s departmental cut-off mark of your desired courses.

If you are yet to apply for the UNILORIN post UTME, then it is important to check this list out before doing so.

At this point, you should be aware that the University of Ilorin has two separate cut-off marks:

  • the General cut off mark: This is the least score that is required of all first-year applicants. If you want to get a chance at admission, you must ensure you score 180.
