Candidates who wrote the 2022 UTME and who made University of Lagos (Unilag) their first choice can assess their chances of gaining undergraduate admission this year.
The first condition is that they must score 200 and above to qualify to write post UTME.
Second, they need to bear in mind that in 2021 Unilag calculated the aggregate scores of candidates by weighting UTME at 50%; O-Level results at 20%; and post UTME at 30%.
If you wrote the UTME you can calculate your UTME component by dividing your UTME score by 8. (400/8 = 50).
O-Level aggregate is calculated using only 5 required O-Level subjects for the course you wish to study as follows: A1 = 4.0 points; B2 = 3.6 points; B3 = 3.2 points; C4 = 2.8 points; C5 = 2.4 points and C6 = 2.0 points. (4.0 x 5 = 20).
For example, let us say Bisi scored 205 in UTME for Theatre Arts (under Creative Arts) and her O-Level results were as follows: English Language – C5; Mathematics – C4; Literature-In-English – C6; Government – A1; and Visual Arts – C6. Her total score so far would be 25.63 (UTME component) + 13.2 (O-Level aggregate) = 38.83 out of 70 points.
Given that in 2017 merit cut-off score for Theatre Arts was 62.15 points we estimate that Bisi would need 62.15 – 38.83 = 23.32 points in post UTME to have a good shot at the merit list for Theatre Arts.
Now, if Bisi feels confident that she could score 23.32 in post UTME then she could press on.
Armed with information about her admission chances a Bisi can decide whether to apply to JAMB for a change course or institution while she still can.
The advice we give is based on data of past performances and the candidate’s academic strength. It has proven to be a sound method of analysis.
