First step 1: Divide Your JAMB Score By 8
The first step to calculate your aggregate cut-off mark is by dividing your JAMB score by 8.

As we’ve said earlier, it’s known that your JAMB score takes 50%, Post UTME score takes 30% and your O’Level grades take 20%.
By dividing your JAMB score by 8 means any answer you get is 50% of your JAMB score.
For example, let’s assume you scored 210 in JAMB examination, then 50% of it is 26.25.
However, you can mathematically calculate your JAMB aggregate cut-off mark if you didn’t understand the first method we showed above.

How To Calculate Your JAMB Aggregate Cut-Off Point Mathematically

Note: it’s four subjects you must sit for in JAMB examination hall. Hence, divide your JAMB score by 4.
Then calculate any answer you get on the percentage of 50%.
You should mathematically do this:
JAMB Score/4 = answer.
After that, then answer × 50%/100 = any answer you get (%).
E.g, 230/4 = 57.5.
After that, then 57.5 × 50%/100 = 28.75%.

Let’s assume you get A1 in all your O’Level subjects. Then below is how to calculate your O’Level aggregate cut-off mark.
Note: even though you get A1 in all your nine (9) O’Level subjects, KSU will not use all of them.
What KSU uses is your 5 core subjects.
For example, if you chose to study Law in KSU, then your 5 core O’Level subjects are
- English Language
- Lit In English
- Civic Education
In this way, any grade you scored in each of the subjects above will be calculated.
E.g, if you scored two B2s (in Civic Education and Marketing), one A1 (in Lit In English) and two B3s (in English and Economics), then your O’Level aggregate cut-off mark is calculated like this way:
- B2 (2) = 3.6 × 2 = 7.2
- A1 (1) = 4 × 1 = 4
- B3 (2) = 3.2 × 2 = 6.4
Now add your O’Level grades’ point together:
7.2 + 4 + 6.4 = 17.6 (your O’Level aggregate cut-off mark).
