How To Calculate Your UNIOSUN Screening Score
Screening Score = Jamb% + O’level Result%
JAMB% = JAMB SCORE X 60/400
JAMB Score = 210
JAMB% = 210 X 60/400 = 31.5
B2 = 7
B3 = 6
C4 = 5
Five main courses required in your course of application are used for calculation.
For example, nursing students have five main subjects: English, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Maths and English which is compulsory for all courses.
Using Nursing As A Case Study:
- English = A1
- Math = B2
- Chemistry = B3
- Physics = C4
- Biology = E8
- B2 = 7
- E8 = 1
- Total = 27
Screening Score = JAMB% + O’level Result% = 31.5 +27 = 58.5%
