UNIZIK Pharmacy Aggregate Score

UNIZIK Aggregate score for admission to Pharmacy is 290.

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
Mathematics 74B280
Physics 70A190
Chemistry 80B280

Final Score: 290*0.7 + 320*0.3 + 10 (one sitting bonus) = 299
