How To Calculate EKSU Post Utme Aggregate
We have discussed the post utme aggregate score on this blog prior to this time. But you must know that the method of calculating it is different from one school to another. Here is how to calculate your post utme aggregate score for Ekiti State University.
Divide your Jamb score by 8; then divide your post utme score by 30 and multiply this by 50.
When you add the two scores, you get a percentage over hundred. This means that your Jamb score is calculated over 50 and your post utme score is calculated over 50 as well.
For example; if Felix scores 230 in his Jamb examination and 20 in his post utme examination, his post utme aggregate score will be calculated as follows:
To calculate his Jamb score: 230/8 = 29
To calculate his post utme score: (20/30) × 50 = 33
Add the two scores together thus: 29 + 33 = 62.
Felix’s aggregate score is 62%.
You must know that if you arrive at anything less than fifty marks then you are not qualified for admission into the Ekiti State University. As a result, you must do your best to score above your stipulated Jamb cut off mark and also to score a high mark in your post utme examinations.
