UNILAG Screening: How To Calculate Screening Point
University of Lagos is one of the prestigious universities in Nigeria, because of these they look for means to admit the best out of the best.How? They do this by making the admission processes tedious for candidates.

Based on last year, Post UME was totally scraped by the FG and screening was introduced. This screening sometimes involves physical interview with Admission officers or it might involve analysing and grading of both your WAEC and JAMB result.

Based on my research, I discover that most candidates does not have full knowledge on the way candidates are been screened. To be specific, I will discus about UNILAG screening, how it was done last year and how it will be done this year.

1. The number one thing you should know is that UNILAG only conduct online screening which means your presence is not needed in the school premises till your resumption day if admitted.

2. UNILAG screening is based on 50:50 modality, which means 50% of your WAEC result and 50% of your JAMB result.

3. UNILAG will only analyse and grade your five most relevant and necessary subjects from your WAEC or NECO result. They use point system to grade the subject, what do I means? I mean that A1=10points, B2=9points, B3=8points, C4=7points, C5=6points, C6=5points. You want to know how it is been calculated? Let me use an illustration;

Mr A had the following WAEC result;
Mathematics-A1 =10pts
English Language-B3=8pts
Biology-C5=6pts
Chemistry-C4=7pts
Physics-B2 =9pts
Further Mathematics –B3 =8pts

You will noticed that I put six subjects, so you will have to select five relevant and necessary subjects. So Mr A decided not to add further mathematics and he summed up the five subjects point which is;
10+8+6+7+9= 40pts
Then Mr A divided the result which is 40 by 50 and multiply by 50; like this
40/50*50= 40
*The step is not really necessary because it will still give you the same result.
That means Mr A have 40% out of 50% from his WAEC result.

4. Now for the JAMB score, you will divide your score by 8; like this
Mr A got 280 in JAMB. Therefore 280/8 will give us 35% out of 50% of your JAMB score.

5. Lastly , you add both the WAEC point and JAMB point together making it over 100% , like this;
40 +35= 75%
This means Mr A screening point is 75%. what next? Then you wait for the cut-off mark to be released which will be after the screening processes.

You still don’t understand then comment your WAEC result and JAMB score, I will help you to calculate your point and I will surely reply you back.
