University of Ibadan, the premier University of Nigeria is arguably the best university in Nigeria which is best known for the quality graduates they produce year after year.

Due to this, they make sure they admit the best out of the crowd. Last year, they admitted 3000 applicants out of over 29000 applicants that applied for the school. What does this implies? It implies that you are competing with the best over ‘limited slot’.

UI mode of screening, last year was grading of point unlike other schools that conducted physical screening. Their screening was based on 50% of WAEC result and 50% of JAMB result. How? Relax , I will explain to you.

UI only analyse and grade your five relevant and necessary subjects in WAEC. I means A1=6points, B2=5points, B3=4points, C4=3points, C5=2points, C6=1point while the rest are zero. You need an illustration? Alright.

Assuming Mr A had the following WAEC results;

Mathematics- A1 = 6pts
English Language- B3 =4pts
Biology- C5 = 2pts
Chemistry- C4 = 3pts
Physics- B2 = 5pts
Economics – B3 = 4pts
Marketing- D7 = 0pts
Further Mathematics– B3 = 4pts

So Mr A decided to pick Mathematics, English Language, Physics, Biology and chemistry because these are his relevant subjects he needs. After summing them up, he got 20% out of 30%. Simple math involved.

Then Mr A divided his point by 30 and multiply by 50, like this;

This implies he has 33.3% out of 50% from his WAEC result. Also, Mr A had 280 in JAMB, then he divided it by 8, like this ; 280/8= 35%.

This implies he has 35% out of 50% from his JAMB score.

Lastly Mr A sum up the two points which are 33.3% and 35% which equals to 68.3%. this implies that Mr A got 68.3% out of 100%.

What next? Wait till cut off mark is released to know your chances.
