How To Calculate OAU Aggregate Score


Calculating OAU aggregate is different from what is obtainable in other schools, while most universities use the 50:50 ratio OAU uses JAMB, Post UTME and O’ Level in the ratio 50:40:10.

Here, the students JAMB score takes 50% of the grade, Post UTME takes 40% and O’level result takes the remaining 10% making the total aggregate score to be 100.

This is how it is calculated👇

Your JAMB score divided by 8 + Your OAU Post UTME Score + O’ level Points = Aggregate Score

  • Step 1: Divide JAMB score by 8
  • Step 2: Calculate your O’level point using the table below
  • Step 3: Sum up your divided JAMB score, O’level points and Post UTME score
  • Result: This gives your new aggregate score.

Your O’level point is calculated thus;

A12.0 points
B21.8 points
B3 1.6 points
C4 1.4 points
C5 1.2 points
C61.0 points
This Table Shows OAU Points for the different Grades in WAEC/NECO/NABTEB results

Here is an example, using JOHN as a case study👇

JOHN had a JAMB score of 258, a Post UTME score of 35 and two A1, one B2 and three C4 in his core subjects in WAEC. To calculate for JOHN’s OAU aggregate score, we will have?

(258/8) + 35 + 8 (we got eight after adding 2 (point of A1) + 1.8 (point of B2) + 4.2 (point of three C4) = 71.45

With this, it means JOHN is eligible to study any course with an aggregate score less than 71.45 as shown in the table above.

You can apply this to your JAMB and Post UTME grade to see where you stand.
