How Waec Grades Will Determine Varsity Cut Off Mark-Adamu Adamu.


This year, students seeking admission into
Nigerian universities, will be judged based on their
WASSCE results and Unified Tertiary Matriculation
Examination (UTME) scores.
The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu,
abolished post-UTME as a means of admitting
candidates into tertiary institutions in 2016.
Ever since then, Universities will be required to
admit students by screening and awarding marks
to their WASSCE results and JAMB scores.
The breakdown shows that when a candidate
submits his/her O’Level result for screening, five
O’Level subjects relating to his proposed
programme of study will be examined.
Marks will then be awarded based on what he
scored in WASSCE.

Hence, A1 is awarded 8%, B2-7%, B3-6%, C4-5%,
C5-4% and C6-3%. Total marks for anyone with
five A1s is 40 per cent. What this means is that if
a candidate has five ‘A1s’, he has gotten a
maximum 40 per cent. A student with five B2s,
would score 35 per cent. Five B3s, 30 per cent;
five C4s, gets 25 per cent; five C5s, 20 per cent
and five C6s would score just 15 per cent.
Higher institutions have also graded UTME’s
scores into percentages. If a UTME candidate has
180 to 189, he is assumed to have scored 10 per
cent. If he scored between 190 and 199, he gets
20 per cent. For those who scored between 200
and 209, they have 30 per cent while someone
who scored between 210 and 219 gets 40 per
cent. Those who scored between 220 and 229,
earn 50 per cent and a student with 230 and
above gets the maximum 60 per cent.
All these imply that a candidate with five A1s in
WASSCE who also scored 230 and above in UTME
is certain to be admitted because he has 40 per
cent in WASSCE and 60 per cent in UTME.
