For the aspiring students of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, screening marks has been rumored to be calculated using UTME/ O’level 50:50 ratio as it adopted last year. In order to satisfy our readers, IFE CITY NEWS have gathered the steps below:
1.) Both the UTME score and your O’level results’ grades are computed to assess you.
2.) For the screening, UTME result weighs 50% of your total score and the remaining 50% from your O’level results.
3.) Your best 8 subjects are computed; With A1 = 8, B2 = 7, B3 = 6, C4 = 5, C5 = 4, C6 = 3, and so on.
4.) Maximum points from your best 8 O’level subjects is 64 (A1 = 8 X 8 subjects).
5.) Your O’level points is then converted to 50% (Assuming
y is your O’level points, then, it will now be calculated thus: y/64 X 50).
6.) For your UTME points, it will be calculated thus: Your UTME score/400 X 50.
7.) Your final merged score, which will be used for admission now = UTME points (maximum of 50) + O’ level points (maximum of 50) = 100.
However, it should be noted that the university is yet to release official cut off marks. The above method was used last year and we consider it necessary to keep our readers who are aspirants of OAU abreast of the happenings in the institution.
