Regardless of the specific calculation method used by your chosen university, your JAMB score will typically carry 50% weightage. Here is an example of how the average score for Medicine and Surgery is calculated using your JAMB score:
- JAMB Score divided by 8, plus Post UTME divided by 2 (applicable for schools using Post UTME and JAMB).
- JAMB Score divided by 8, plus Post UTME 30% and O’ level 20% (for schools considering JAMB, Post UTME, and O’ level).
- JAMB Score divided by 8 + O’ level (constituting the remaining 50%).
As evident from the calculation, your JAMB score significantly contributes to your overall admission requirements. Therefore, a high JAMB score is crucial when applying for competitive courses like Medicine and Surgery.
