Supplementary Admission UNILAG Cut off Mark for Medicine and Surgery 2023
The university senate also approves and releases the cut off mark for supplementary admission into Medicine and Surgery.
They do this shortly after the publication of the merit admission list. The supplementary admission cut off mark for Medicine and Surgery may be higher or lower than the merit cut off, depending on how competitive the process is.
In other words, the UNILAG cut off mark for supplementary admission into Medicine and Surgery would depend on the number of candidates vying for it and their individual aggregate scores.
What is the Meaning of UNILAG Departmental Cut off mark?
UNILAG departmental cut off marks are minimum aggregate scores candidates reach before they can qualify for admission into various courses in UNILAG.
So every candidate whose aggregate score is exactly or above the departmental cut off mark of their prospective course will gain admission in the merit list.
Note, however, that UNILAG cut off marks are not constant. They vary every year.
So UNILAG departmental cut off marks can go up or down depending on certain factors like…
- carrying capacity of the department (i.e. the number of candidates it can hold).
- the number of candidates vying for the department in the year in question.
- the overall performance of all the candidates vying for the department.
So whatever the cut off mark, it is normally out in the departments before the publication of the admission list.
How Does UNILAG Arrive At the Departmental Cut Off Mark for Medicine and Surgery?
But how does UNILAG determine their departmental cut off mark for Medicine and Surgery and other courses?
They determine the departmental cut off marks after the release of the Post UTME screening examination result.
So, after the release of Post UTME results, departments begin to work out their cut off marks based on the above-mentioned factors.
A department that could admit 120 candidates on merit would start selecting from the highest scorer. They go down and down till they get 120 students.
Once they get 120 students, others are “cut off”. Therefore, the aggregate score of the 120th student becomes the cut off mark for the course.
But if the carrying capacity of such department is actually 200, they’d have a shortfall of 70 students. So the remaining 70 students may be admitted via ELDS and other factors in the supplementary lists.
Note that there would always be other candidates whose average may not be up to the merit cut-off mark but who would be admitted based on the “Catchment Area” grace.
How to Calculate UNILAG Aggregate Score in 2023
To calculate your UNILAG aggregate score, you should bear the following in mind:
- You must consider your JAMB score.
- You must also factor in your Post UTME score.
- O’level grades and their points will also come into play.
Kindly follow the steps below to calculate your UNILAG aggregate score:
Calculate your O’level subjects grades using the grading system below.
- A1 = 4.0
- B2 = 3.6
- B3 = 3.2
- C4 = 2.8
- C5 = 2.4
- C6 = 2.0
Of course, you know that only five core subjects are required from your O’level. And this is true for any course you want to study. So the calculation of your O’level subjects grades must be done only on your five important subjects. English and Mathematics are compulsory.
UNILAG aggregate score is on a scale of 1 – 100. Therefore, you must divide your JAMB score by 8. Keep the result you get for the final calculation.
Now, add the results of the calculations above (O’level grade and JAMB score). Then add the sum to your UNILAG post UTME screening score.
Whatever you get after the step three above is your final UNILAG aggregate.
