After seeing all of UNILAG’s departmental cut off marks for the year 2021/2022, the next important question to ask is How UNILAG do their screening.

Basically, the University of Lagos does its admission screening in two phases.

The first phase involves aspirants who applied to study in UNILAG proceeding for the pre-screening exercise immediately it is being announced.

Usually, during this first phase, only two major documents are needed i.e SSCE Result and JAMB Registration print out.

However, as a note of warning, all candidates are advised to go their pre-screening venues or centers 30 minutes before time to avoid stories that touch the heart.

Finally, the second phase then comes along immediately you have been admitted into UNILAG to study any choice of course. However, at the second phase, you need to do proper screening and the documents usually needed include;

  • Birth Certificate or Age Declaration
  • Certificate of Local Government of Origin
  • Original copies of your credentials (certificates and statements of result)
  • Letter of good conduct from your village head or any responsible member of your community/or civil servant not below grade level 10 or equivalent in the private sector.

NOTE:- UNILAG does not accept awaiting result and please do ensure you come along with your admission status slip printout.

How Do I Calculate UNILAG Aggregate Score?

After going through UNILAG Cut-off mark for your desired course, and knowing fully well the JAMB cut-off mark; You can now calculate your aggregate so you will know where you fall into properly. you can use the method below.

NOTE: Your performance at O’level, UTME and Post-UTME are used for the final calculation.

O’Level usually takes 20% of the grading system, UTME takes 50% and Post-UTME which is usually the last hurdle takes 30%.

Therefore for the O’level result (WAEC/NECO),

A1……………4 points

B2……………..3.6 Points

B3……………….3.2  Points

C4……………….2.8 Points

C5………………2.5 Points

C6……………….2.0 Points

Use the grade point to calculate your 5 core subjects but however for JAMB UTME, you simply divide the overall JAMB score by 8 and divide your Post UTME Score by 2.

If you want to stand a chance to get admitted into the University of Lagos, then you must ensure your aggregate gets to at least 40%.
