How Do you calculate UNN aggregate score?

UNN will give you admission if your aggregate score is same or higher than your departmental cut off mark , it is a determining factor.


How to Calculate UNN Aggregate Score


Its interests us to inform all UNN Candidates that their aggregate[ez-toc] score is a combination of both JAMB and POST UTME

JAMB Score 60% while POST UTME Score happens to be 40%. Below is the guide on how to calculate that;

UNN Students will have to multiply their JAMB Score by 0.6, Write down the answer you get,

Then also multiply your POST-UTME Score by 0.4.

Now simply add up what you get in total.

E.g let’s say your jamb score is 302 and your post utme score is 307. Then we will have (302×0.6) + (307×0.4) = Aggregate score = 304.

After this process you should already know if you have to wait for admission or do a change of course before it’s too late


Can I gain admission into UNN without meeting the cut off mark?

Well, there are many students in the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) currently who didn’t meet the cut off mark requirements listed above. This is Nigeria and you should know that, often times, a person’s connection or financial capacity can help him/her pass certain requirements without struggling for it.


Nevertheless, on a fair basis, if you don’t meet the institution’s cutoff mark for any year, you may  not be able to gain admission for that year except you have an upper hand.

UNN releases so many admission list after the first batch. There is the second list, third list and sometimes even forth admission list.

What do you do if you don’t meet up with the departmental cut off mark in UNN?

UNN is one of the most difficult schools to gain admission in Nigeria. From the departmental cutoff mark above, you don’t need anyone to tell you that the university is truly competitive in nature.


In light of this, many students end up not meeting the departmental cutoff mark  for the year. But there are some options available if you find yourself in this situation.


1. Apply for UNN shopping form: This is undoubtedly the best thing to do if you do not meet the requirement for your course. UNN shopping form is simply a form sold at N3,000 by the university management that allows applicants to change their course in situations where they are unable to meet the requirements of their dream course.


It is important to note that UNN shopping form is limited to some courses. Take for instance, applicants cannot purchase shopping form for courses like Law, Medicine and Surgery, Pharmacy and other top university courses.


2. Wait for supplementary admission list: Another option is for you to pray and wait for the institution to release her supplementary admission list. Usually, students who performed very well in their JAMB & Post UTME are admitted through this list. If you are among the ELS of UNN, you might also be considered for admission.


3. Change the course or university: Change the course or university to another school that accepts a lower cutoff mark is another way to gain admission into tertiary institutions even if you don’t meet the university’s cutoff mark. All you have to do is to apply for JAMB change of course and institution form which is just N2500 only..


4.Apply next year: The last option available to you is just to apply for admission next year. Actually, this is a bad option but you can’t kill yourself if UNN refuses to offer you admission for your dream course. Study harder and prepare for admission next year.
