      Your O-level aggregate is 16/20, your UTME contribution is 226/8 = 28.25/50. Your current aggregate score is 44.25/70.

    1. Your O-level aggregate is 15.2/20, UTME is 29.75 (238/8) and add post UTME of 11 then your aggregate score is: 55.95.

        Pls, your reply will help me alot.

  4. I scored 224 in jamb and my aggregate in waec is 12/20. I applied for Economics in Unilag, what are my chances of admission in unilag. Please your reply will help me a lot.

    1. Dear Mary, your current aggregate score is 40/70. In 2018 the merit score for Economics was 71.225/100. If the merit score for Economics is same this year it will mean you need 30/30 in your post utme for a good chance at the merit list.

      However, it could be less this year. Plus if you are from a catchment state 24/30 might be sufficient. Whatever the case you must score high in your post UTME.
