Relevant subjects are the subjects prescribed for a course and advertised by JAMB. The credit passes obtained in those O’level subjects are the credits to be weighted. Where less than five (5) relevant subjects are prescribed for a course, the credit passes in the prescribed subjects will be weighted as well as the next best results.


  • The aggregate score will be used to determine the cut-off point for admission into each of the programmes.
