UNIZIK Cut Off Mark For Computer Science

UNIZIK Departmental and JAMB Cut Off Mark

To study Computer Science in UNIZIK you must score at least 180 in JAMB to qualify for Post UTME.

But scoring 180 in JAMB won’t guarantee your admission into the Faculty of Physical Science to study Computer Science in UNIZIK.

Computer Science being a very competitive course in Nigeria require you score very well in JAMB, a JAMB score of 250 and above should do the Job, and also good grade in your O’level result is a prerequisite.

O’level Grade For Computer Science In UNIZIK

Your O’level grade will be computed from the four subjects you sat for in JAMB.

A good grade in these subjects will boost your chances of being admitted in UNIZIK, because unlike most schools, UNIZIK uses JAMB score and O’level grade to compute students aggregate.

If you must be admitted on the merit list you must score well above the aggregate score for Computer Science.

Based on previous years, the aggregate score for Computer Science in UNIZIK is 227.5, now let’s analyze JAMB and O’level grade you will need to get to score above the aggregate.

UNIZIK Computer Science Aggregate Score

UNIZIK Aggregate score for admission to Computer Science is 227.5.

UNIZIK admission aggregate score is calculated based on JAMB score and O’ level result for the four subjects taken in JAMB.

The ratio for calculation is; 70:30, i.e 70% JAMB score and 30% O’ level subject score 70/100 = 0.7; 30/100 = 0.3

Points Per O’level Grade:

A1= 90
B2= 80
B3= 70
C4= 60
C5= 55
C6= 50
D7= 25
E8 to F9=0
Awaiting Result (AR) =0

BONUS: Students who credits all required subjects in one sitting get 10 points, while students with two sittings gets 0 point

Now, here is a typical example for a student with One sitting O’level (+10)

SubjectsJAMB ScoreO’level GradeO’level Point
English56C460
Mathematics 74B280
Physics 70B370
Chemistry 50C555
TOTAL 250 265

Final Score: 250*0.7 + 260*0.3 + 10 (one sitting bonus) = 253

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

Other Direct Entry Requirement

JUPEB Program For Computer Science In UNIZIK

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