RSU Formerly known as Rivers State University of Science and Technology (RSUST) do not exactly have a fixed cut off mark  but in this post we will be teach you how to calculate your aggregate score.

It was granted independent university status in 1980 and was renamed from College of Science and Technology to Rivers State University of Science and Technology. It is the only university in Nigeria that is accredited to offer degree programs in Marine Engineering


After every UTME exercise, a particular mark is set out by the exam body {e.g 120}. This mark is a score a candidate must have or cross, to qualify him or her to sit for the chosen school’s POST UTME exercise. This said mark is announced to all school’s to enable them decide the number of candidates they will admit.
After the school’s decision, they announce a particular mark which must not be lower than the mark the UTME body fixed. Any candidate who cross the mark set by the UTME body and did not reach the chosen school’s mark, is NEVER eligible to sit for the school’s POST UTME.
This mark or score set by the school admission board is known as SCHOOL’S CUT OFF MARK..

How To Calculate RSU Aggregate Score 

To correctly calculate your aggregate, know that the JAMB Examination is made up of 400 marks, whereas the RSU Post UTME is made 100 marks.

  2. Divide your Post UTME score by  2,
  3. Add up the result.

This is how to calculate yours

If Treasure scored 240 in her JAMB and 80 in her Post UTME, then her Aggregate score can be gotten by following these steps.

240/8= 30

80/2= 40

40+ 30= 70
