Federal government kicked against POST UTME screening exams which were normally conducted by the higher institutions. A new grading system has been developed, thus no written examination would be conducted by the institutions. This would curb the extortion of students by institutions and also enhance a fair scoring system.
Here is how the 2016/17 Post UTME Screening scores will be determined.
A. Number of sittings for O’Level
1) One Sitting = 10 marks
2) Two Sittings = 3marks
Total marks obtainable = 10marks
B. O’Level Result Grading from 5 subjects
A (A1) = 6marks
B (B2, B3) = 4marks
C (C4, C5, C6) = 3marks
Total marks obtainable = 30marks
C. JAMB UTME Score Grades
180-200: 20-23 marks
331-400: 49-60 marks
Total marks obtainable = 60marks
The overall is 100%. JAMB and the institution then determines the percentage cut off mark for each course.
So start calculating your score now.
