SLU Aggregate Score for All Courses 2024/2025 (How To Calculate)

Gaining admission into the Sule Lamido University (SLU) involves meeting the required cut-off mark set by the university and then calculating your aggregate score to determine your eligibility.

This post provides an overview of what an aggregate score is, how it is calculated, and why it is important for SLU admission.

SLU Aggregate Score for All Courses

What is Sule Lamido University?

Sule Lamido University (SLU) is a state-owned university located in Kafin Hausa, Jigawa State, Nigeria. Established in 2013 and licensed by the National Universities Commission, SLU commenced full academic activities in September 2014.

Overview of SLU Cut-Off Mark

After the UTME examinations, SLU sets a minimum cut-off mark that candidates must equal or exceed to qualify for the SLU post-UTME screening exercise. Typically, SLU’s cut-off mark ranges between 140-160.

What is Aggregate Score?

The aggregate score determines a candidate’s overall academic performance across relevant examinations. It is calculated as:

Aggregate Score = (UTME score + Post-UTME score) / Total mark obtainable

This score carries the most weight in SLU admission decisions.

Sule Lamido University (SLU) uses an aggregate score for admission decisions, combining weighted scores from key examinations:

  • SLU Post-UTME
  • O’Level Exams

The aggregate score determines if you qualify to study your desired course. Calculation formulas differ slightly across departments.

This article provides a step-by-step guideline to calculate your aggregate score accurately.

Overview of Score Components

The major exam scores that make up your SLU aggregate score are:

ExamTypical Weight
SLU Post-UTME30-40%
O’Level Results20-30%

How to Calculate Your Aggregate Score

  1. Obtain your scores for JAMB, Post-UTME, and O’Levels
  2. Find the department’s assigned weights for each exam type
  3. Multiply each score by the respective weights
  4. Sum the weighted scores to find your aggregate score

See the example calculation below for a sample Management Sciences candidate:

  • JAMB Score = 250 (50% weight)
  • Post-UTME Score = 70 (30% weight)
  • O’Level = 75% (20% weight)


Aggregate Score = (JAMB score * JAMB weight) + (Post-UTME score * Post-UTME weight) + (O’Level score * O’Level weight)

Putting the values:

= (250 * 0.5) + (70 * 0.3) + (75 * 0.2)
= 125 + 21 + 15 = 161

So this candidate’s SLU aggregate score is 161.

I hope this breakdown clearly explains how to arrive at your department’s SLU aggregate score!
