UNIZIK Replaces Post UTME with O’level & UTME Results Grading System: Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK) has replaced Post-UTME screening with O’level and UTME results grading system.
The management of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK) has announced the replacement of Post UTME with O’level and UTME results grading system.
This is to inform the entire University community and the General Public that the Post UTME and other relevant Screening Examination for the 2020/2021 admission exercise have been replaced with the O’ level and UTME results grading system.
This is also in consideration of the very large number of applications and the need to comply with COVID-19 preventive guidelines of the Federal Government of Nigeria.
In place of Post UTME Scores and other relevant Screening Examination Scores, the University Management has adopted an automated O’level subject grading system for the exercise.
In order to ensure transparency in the admission exercise, the following calculation formula will be used for the exercise.
CALCULATION FORMULA USED FOR THE POST-UTME 2020/2021 ADMISSIONS SCREENING EXERCISE UMTE CANDIDATES:
Candidates will be screened based on their JAMB scores and O’level result for the four subjects taken in JAMB. The following considerations will apply:
A. RATIO – The ratio will be 70:30. i.e 70% JAMB score and 30% O’level subject score: 70/100 = 0.7; 30/100 = 0.3
B. RANKING OF O’LEVEL SUBJECTS SCORE – O’level results will be ranked as given below:
E8 to F9=0
Awaiting Result (AR) =0
For each candidate, the O’level subjects used will be the subjects the candidate sat for in JAMB. E.g. for a candidate who sat for English, Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics in JAMB, the grades obtained in candidate O’level results in these subjects will be used to calculate the O’level points obtained.
C. BONUS – A candidate who credited his four subjects in a single sitting will get a bonus of 20 points (i.e Bonus =20). A candidate who credited his four subjects in two sitting will get no bonus (i.e Bonus = 0).
D. CALCULATIONS – Final score = [(JAMB SCORE`* 0.7) + [(O’level score + Bonus)*0.3]
Illustration: A student scored 280 in JAMB and had O’level results distributed as given in the table below:

|SUBJECTS||JAMB SCORES||O’LEVEL RESULTS||O’LEVEL SCORES|
I. Single sitting:
Final score= Weighted JAMB score + Weighed O’level score
(280 x 0.7) + [ (285 +20) x 0.3]
= 196 + 91.5
II. Two sittings:
Weighted JAMB score + Weighed O’level score (280 x 0.7) + [ (285+ 0)x 0.3]
= 196 + 85.5
Note: The difference between the final screening scores of a candidate who credited his four subjects in a single sitting and the candidate who made it in two sittings is 6 (i.e 287.5- 281.5).
