    It will interest all admission-seekers to know that it is no longer business as usual. Submitting two WAEC/NECO/GCE results (i.e two sittings) is no longer the same with submitting one sitting for admission. Candidates who submit O’level at one sitting have an advantage over their counterparts with two sittings. It will contribute ti your total points that determines if you meet the cut-off marks. Any candidate who submits only one result which contains his/her relevant subjects already has 10 points. The exam could be NECO, WASSCE, November/ December WASSCE etc, but any candidate who has two sittings only gets 2 points. O’ Level grade points: Each grade would have it equivalent point; A=6 marks, B=4 marks, C=3 marks. UTME scores points: where each score range has its equivalent point which can be summarised thus, 180-200=20-23 marks, 200-250=24-33 points, 251-300=34-43, 300-400=44-60 points. For example a candidate with 180-185 gets 20 points, while a candidate with 186-190 gets 21 points. Please be informed that FEES WILL STILL BE CHARGED for the screening exercise. Also, catchment and educationally less-developed state would still be used for admission from the 2016/2017 academic session. How To Calculate Your Points For 2016/2017 Admission Screening Exercise.!!!! SITTINGS: Let’s say you had all your required O’level subjects in one sitting, you have 10 marks there already. O’LEVEL: Now, let’s assume you have 2 As, 3 Bs and 4 Cs in your O’level result (WAEC/NECO/GCE), then you have, (2×6) + (3×4) + (3×3) = 33 Points JAMB SCORE: Let’s assume you score 200 in JAMB, you have 24 Points there. Summing everything together, we have SITTINGS POINT + O LEVEL POINT + JAMB POINT Your calculated total point for admission is now 10 + 33 + 24 = 67 Points. Now, you can only pray that the admission cut-off mark for your course is not more than 60 to have a high chance of getting admission into the institution of your choice.
