UNILAG Cut Off Mark For Computer Science

UNILAG DEPARTMENTAL CUT OFF MARK
UNILAG DEPARTMENTAL CUT OFF MARK

To study Computer Science in UNILAG 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 Science in UNILAG to study Computer Science.

Computer Science being a very competitive course in Nigeria require you score well in JAMB, a JAMB score of 340 and above should do the Job, and also doing very well in UNILAG Post UTME Exam is a prerequisite.

Post UTME Score For Computer Science In UNILAG

A score of 84 in UNILAG Post UTME is good enough to secure your spot in the Faculty of Science UNILAG to study Computer Science.

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 Science.

Based on previous years, the aggregate score for Computer Science in UNILAG is 81.125, now let’s both analyze the JAMB and Post UTME score you will need to get to score above the aggregate 81.125.

UNILAG Computer Science Aggregate Score

UNILAG Aggregate score for admission into Computer Science is 81.125.

To calculate UNILAG 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 Science in UNILAG and scored 250 in JAMB and 60 in Post UTME, using this formulae, the aggregate score can then be calculate as;

340/8 + 84/2 = 42.5 + 42

Making the student’s aggregate score 84.5

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 Science In UNILAG

Aside JAMB, you can also be admitted to study Computer Science 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 admitted to study Computer Science 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 Science, you can apply through JAMB direct entry and be admitted to 200 level.

How Many Years To Study Computer Science In UNILAG?
