By now (May 2018) candidates who wrote the 2018 UTME and who made University of Lagos (Unilag) their first choice can assess their chances of gaining undergraduate admission this year. The first condition is that they must score 200 and above to qualify to write post UTME.

Second, they need to bear in mind that in 2017 Unilag calculated the aggregate scores of candidates by weighting UTME at 50%; O-Level results at 20%; and post UTME at 30%.

If you wrote the UTME you can calculate your UTME component by dividing your UTME score by 8. (400/8 = 50).

O-Level aggregate is calculated using only 5 required O-Level subjects for the course you wish to study as follows: A1 = 4.0 points; B2 = 3.6 points; B3 = 3.2 points; C4 = 2.8 points; C5 = 2.4 points and C6 = 2.0 points. (4.0 x 5 = 20).

For example, let us say Bisi scored 205 in UTME for Theatre Arts (under Creative Arts) and her O-Level results were as follows: English Language – C5; Mathematics – C4; Literature-In-English – C6; Government – A1; and Visual Arts – C6. Her total score so far would be 25.63 (UTME component) + 13.2 (O-Level aggregate) = 38.83 out of 70 points.

Given that in 2017 the merit cut-off score for Theatre Arts was 62.15 points we estimate that Bisi would need 62.15 – 38.83 = 23.32 points in post UTME to have a good shot at the merit list for Theatre Arts.

The 2017 Unilag post UTME was scored to 30 points. The highest score in that exercise was 26/30.

Now, if Bisi feels confident that she could score 23.32 in post UTME then she could press on. However, experience tells us that a realistic target for Bisi would be 20 points. We would thus advise her to consider switching to a course with a 2017 cut-off score of around 56 points like Visual Arts or Music both under Creative Arts in Unilag.

Armed with information about her admission chances a Bisi can decide whether to apply to JAMB for a change course or institution while she still can.

The advice we give is based on data of past performances and the candidate’s academic strength. It has proven to be a sound method of analysis.

You qualify to write post UTME in Unilag. 211 is relatively low for Mass Comm. You will need to support this score with strong results in your O-levels and your post UTME.
