UNIZIK Admission Requirements: 2024/2025

If you’re aspiring to join Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK) for the 2024/2025 academic session, it’s crucial to grasp the recently introduced O’level and UTME results grading system. This system replaces the traditional Post UTME and other screening examinations due to the high volume of applications and the ongoing COVID-19 precautions.

Admission Entry Methods:

UNIZIK offers two entry methods for undergraduates: the UTME entry and the Direct Entry. Whether you are a UTME candidate or applying through Direct Entry, understanding the new grading system is vital.

O’level and UTME Results Grading System:

In the 2024/2025 admission exercise, the University has adopted an automated O’level subject grading system to ensure transparency. Instead of relying on Post UTME scores, candidates will be evaluated based on their JAMB scores and O’level results for the four subjects taken in JAMB.

Calculation Formula:

The calculation formula involves a ratio of 70:30, with 70% assigned to JAMB scores and 30% to O’level subject scores. O’level results are assigned scores based on specific grades, with a bonus of 20 points for candidates who credit all four subjects in a single sitting. The final score is calculated using the formula: Final score = [(JAMB SCORE * 0.7) + [(O’level score + Bonus) * 0.3]].


To better understand the process, let’s consider an example. A student with a JAMB score of 280 and O’level results with corresponding grades and scores. The final screening score is calculated for both a single sitting and two sittings.


Q1: What subjects are considered for the O’level grading? A: The O’level subjects considered are the subjects the candidate sat for in JAMB.

Q2: Is there a bonus for candidates who credit all four subjects in one sitting? A: Yes, a bonus of 20 points is awarded to candidates who credit all four subjects in a single sitting.

Q3: How does the university handle candidates with results from two sittings? A: Candidates with results from two sittings receive no bonus in the grading system.


Understanding the new O’level and UTME results grading system is essential for prospective UNIZIK students. Whether you’re a UTME or Direct Entry candidate, this transparent and automated approach aims to ensure fairness in the admission process for the 2024/2025 academic session.
