UNIZIK O'level and UTME Results Grading System

The management of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK) has published the calculation formula that will be used for the 2021/2022 academic session post UTME screening exercise.

UNIZIK Calculation Formula for Post UTME Screening Exercise

This is to inform the entire University community and the General Public that Post UTME, Direct Entry and other relevant Screening Examination for 2021/2022 admission exercise will be conducted with an automated O’ level and UTME results grading system introduced last year by our University.

This is also in consideration of the very large number of applications, the need to comply with COVID-19 preventive guidelines of the Federal Government of Nigeria and the prevailing security situation in our region.  

Candidates are advised to go to JAMB accredited CBT centres/JAMB Offices and upload their O’ level result/s to JAMB CAPS Portal on or before Sunday 12th December 2021 in other to be considered in the 2021/2022 admission exercise. 

Please note that candidates should not use regular/ non JAMB accredited cyber cafes for result/s upload to the JAMB CAPS Portal. 

In order to ensure transparency in the 2021/2022 admission exercise the following calculation formula will be used for the exercise. 


Candidates will be screened based on their JAMB scores and O’level result for the four subjects taken in JAMB. The following considerations will apply:

A. RATIO – The ratio will be 70:30. i.e 70% JAMB score and 30% O’level subject score: 70/100 = 0.7; 30/100 = 0.3

B. RANKING OF O’LEVEL SUBJECTS SCORE – O’level results will be ranked as given below:

  • A1= 90,
  • B2= 80,
  • B3= 70,
  • C4= 60,
  • C5= 55,
  • C6= 50,
  • D7= 25,
  • E8 to F9=0,
  • Awaiting Result (AR) =0

For each candidate, the O’level subjects used will be the subjects the candidate sat for in JAMB. E.g. for a candidate who sat for English, Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics in JAMB, the grades obtained in candidate O’level results in these subjects will be used to calculate the O’level points obtained.

C. BONUS – A candidate who credited his four subjects in a single sitting will get a bonus of 10 points (i.e. Bonus =10). A candidate who credited his four subjects in two sitting will get no bonus (i.e. Bonus = 0).

D. CALCULATIONS – Final score = [(JAMB SCORE`* 0.7) + [(O’level score + Bonus)*0.3]

Illustration: A student scored 280 in JAMB and had O’level results distributed as given in the table below:

English 66 A1 90
Mathematics 78 B3 70
Physics 70 B3 70
chemistry 66 C5 55
TOTAL 280   285

I. Single sitting:
Final score= Weighted JAMB score + Weighed O’level score
(280 x 0.7) + [ (285 +10) x 0.3]
= 196 + 88.5
= 284.5

II. Two sittings:
Weighted JAMB score + Weighed O’level score (280 x 0.7) + [ (285+ 0)x 0.3]
= 196 + 85.5
= 281.5

Note: The difference between the final screening scores of a candidate who credited his four subjects in a single sitting and the candidate who made it in two sittings is 6 (i.e 284.5- 281.5).
