How to Calculate UNICAL Aggregate Score
Don’t know how to calculate the UNICAL Cutoff mark? then this section is for you. We have taken the time to explain how you can calculate the UNICAL POST-UTME aggregate for the 2022/2023 academic year. Kindly note that both the UTME and POST-UTME scores solely contribute to the UNICAL aggregate, and they are both 50%.
To calculate the UNICAL POSTUTME aggregate, divide your UTME score by 8.
Secondly, divide your POST-UTME score by 2 as well.
Now, sum the results of the two calculations above and that is your aggregate for the year. To explain this further Below is an example to guide you;
So, take, for instance, you scored 260 in JAMB and 70 in the Post-UTME examination, below are the steps to calculate your aggregate:
The first is to divide your JAMB score by 8. Which will be 260/8 = 32.5%.
Secondly is to divide your POST-UTME score by 2 which will be 70/2 = 36.5%.
Finally, your aggregate will be the sum of the first and second steps above, which will be 32.5% + 36.5% = 69%.
