UNIBEN Cut Off Mark For Computer Engineering

UNIBEN Departmental Cut Off Mark

To study Computer Engineering in UNIBEN you must score at least 200 in JAMB to qualify for Post UTME.

But scoring 200 in JAMB won’t guarantee your admission into the Faculty of Engineering UNIBEN to study Computer Engineering.

Computer Engineering being a very competitive course in Nigeria require you score very well in JAMB

JAMB score of 280 and above should do the Job, and also doing very well in UNIBEN Post UTME Exam is a prerequisite.

Post UTME Score For Computer Engineering In UNIBEN

A score of 70 in UNIBEN Post UTME is good enough to secure your spot in UNIBEN to study Computer Engineering.

You may be asking, why do I need to score that high in JAMB and still do well in Post UTME?

Well, the truth is, admission to student is dependent on varying factors, such as Merit, ELDS, general students performance etc.

Students admitted on the merit list must score well above the aggregate score for Computer Engineering.

Based on previous years, the aggregate score for Computer Engineering in UNIBEN is 67, now let’s both analyze the JAMB and Post UTME score you will need to get to score above the aggregate 67.

UNIBEN Computer Engineering Aggregate Score

UNIBEN Aggregate score for admission into Computer Engineering is 67.

To calculate UNIBEN admission aggregate score, you divide your JAMB Score by 8 and your Post UTME score by 2 and sum them up.

We can then say that your aggregate score is the summation of your JAMB score divided by 8 and your Post UTME score divided by 2.

A student who wishes to study Computer Engineering in UNIBEN and scored 280 in JAMB and 70 in Post UTME, using this formular, the aggregate score is;

280/8 + 70/2 = 35 + 35

Making the student’s aggregate score 70

So you see that the higher your JAMB and Post UTME score the higher your average aggregate score which consequently increases your chances of being admitted.

Other Direct Entry Requirement

JUPEB Program For Computer Engineering In UNIBEN

Aside JAMB, you can also be admitted to study Computer Engineering through JUPEB, JUPEB is an acronym for Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board.

To kick start this process you will first need to buy the form NGN15,000 and sit for the entrance exam.

There is really no passing or failing in the entrance exam, it’s actually just a formality as most student if not all will be allowed to participate in the JUPEB program thereafter.

The program spans for 1 year (2 semesters) and successful candidates would then be given admission to study Computer Engineering beginning from 200 level.

During the course of the program you will need to pay a fee of NGN150,000, this can be paid in installment.

JAMB Direct Entry

For student who have studied other courses before now and want to study Computer Engineering, you can apply through JAMB direct entry and be admitted to 200 level.
