UNIBEN Olevel Grading System

This section is where I will be discussing the way UNIBEN is calculating it’s aspirant O’level results for admission. WAEC and NECO are mostly used for admission to schools.

UNIBEN do not need Olevel result for their admission they only use JAMB UTME and Post UTME score for their admission process, continue reading to see how to calculate UNIBEN aggregate score for admission.

How To Calculate UNIBEN Aggregate Score

It is easy to calculate the University Of Benin aggregate score, the school uses the 50:50 system to calculate their aspirant score for admission.

The system UNIBEN is using is similar to other Federal University’s way of calculating the aggregate score. The 50:50 system means 50% in UTME and 50% in Post UTME which gives 100%.

Here’s how to calculate the UNIBEN Aggregate Score for admission easily.

From your JAMB UTME SCORE, divide your score by 8 and your POST UTME score will be divided by 2. The aggregate score will be the addition of the two figures respectively.


To better understand the calculation process, you can check out this illustration below.

Let’s assume a candidate applying to study at the Federal University of Technology, Akure has a JAMB score of 205 and a Post UTME score of 50. To calculate his aggregate score;

JAMB score = 205 / 8 = 25.63

Post UTME score = 50 / 2 = 25

Total = 25.63(JAMB) + 25(Post UTME) = 51 approximately

Such a candidate’s aggregate score will be 51.

It is pertinent to have it in mind that, University of Benin (UNIBEN) does not only consider Post UTME screening score and JAMB examination score when offering admission. You must provide other admission requirements given by UNIBEN.

For example, your O’level result must have a minimum of 6 Credits (C).

You must have also chosen UNIBEN as your first choice while you registered for JAMB.


Having known how to calculate UNIBEN Aggregate Score(UNIBEN JAMB and Departmental Cut Off Mark), if by any means you didn’t meet up with the above mentioned cut off mark for your course, I advise you to go for a change of course or you change to another institution that accepts low score.
