How to calculate JAMB aggregate score 2023
The JAMB aggregate score is the addition of all the scores attained in each JAMB UTME subject. Eg. If David scores the following grades in each subject ie;
- English Language = 80
- Economics = 70
- Government = 66
- Geography = 78
Then we will calculate David’s aggregate score as 80 + 70 + 66 + 78 = 294
Therefore David’s JAMB aggregate score is 294/400.
