We have come to know that many students find it really difficult to calculate their aggregate score and their cut off mark and it really isn’t their fault as calculating cut off marks varies for different institutions.

On this note, we have made it easy for you by giving you step by step procedure on how to calculate  Bayelsa State Polytechnic (BYSPOLY)   aggregate score, but before this, we are going to tell you what aggregate and Post UTME Score means and what things are to be considered before calculating the aggregate score.

About The Polytechnic

The Bayelsa State Polytechnic, Aleibiri was established in 2014 by the Bayelsa State Government through the Bayelsa State Polytechnic (ESTABLISHMENT) law, 2014. The law was passed by the State House of Assembly and assented to by the Executive Governor of the State, His Excellency (Hon) Henry Seriake Dickson on the 30th day of April, 2014. The Bayelsa State Polytechnic (AMENDMENT) Law, 2018 was also amended and enacted by the State House of Assembly and signed into law on 2nd August 2018. The Pioneer Rector of the Polytechnic, Prof. Promise Mebine was appointed on the 4th day of December, 2017 by the Governor.The Polytechnic was set up primarily to produce middle and higher level technical manpower for the nation’s economy. By its establishment, government desires that the nation’s drive towards technological development would be attained at a fast pace. The Polytechnic will provide courses of instruction, research and training in Science, Technology, Engineering, Commerce and Management and in other such fields of applied learning relevant to the industrial development of the State and Nigeria in the area of industrial, Agricultural production, distribution and for research in the development and adaptation of various techniques.

WHAT IS AGGREGATE SCORE

That means the candidate must get at least 50 Questions Correctly. The aggregate score will be used to determine the cut-off point for admission into each of the programmes. Cut-off points for each course will be determined by the performance of all the candidates who applied for the course.

WHAT IS POST UTME SCORE 

After every UTME exercise, a particular mark is set out by the exam body {e.g 120}. This mark is a score a candidate must have or cross, to qualify him or her to sit for the chosen school’s POST UTME exercise. This said mark is announced to all school’s to enable them decide the number of candidates they will admit.
After the school’s decision, they announce a particular mark which must not be lower than the mark the UTME body fixed. Any candidate who cross the mark set by the UTME body and did not reach the chosen school’s mark, is NEVER eligible to sit for the school’s POST UTME.
This mark or score set by the school admission board is known as SCHOOL’S CUT OFF MARK..

How To Calculate BYSPOLY Aggregate Score

1. To correctly calculate your aggregate, know that the JAMB Examination is made up of 400 marks, whereas the  Post UTME is made 100 marks.

  1. Divide your JAMB score by 8,
  2. Divide your Post UTME score by  2,
  3. Add up the result.

An example for quick understanding

This is how to calculate yours

If Tina scored 240 in her JAMB and 80 in her Post UTME, then her Aggregate score can be gotten by following these steps.

240/8= 30

80/2= 40

40+ 30= 70

Tina’s aggregate score is 70.

2. Considering O’level (WAEC, NECO, GCE or NABTEB):

O level is calculated using the 5 core subjects(core to the course you wish to study as decided by the University) as follows:

  • A1 – 6 points
  • B2 – 5 points
  • B3 – 4 points
  • C4 – 3 points
  • C5 – 2 points
  • C6 – 1 points

And maximum is 30 points. The total points is then prorated to 20 through multiplication by 2/3.
