His suggestion was to address the twin challenges of access and equitable educational development of States in the Federation.

How do I calculate the FUKASHERE cut-off mark?

In order to calculate the cut-off mark for you have to first understand that your JAMB Score and Post UTME scores have to both add up to 100%. The JAMB score should be 60% while the Post UTME score is 40%.

  1. First thing you have to do is convert the percentage into decimal i.e the JAMB score becomes 0.6 and the Post UTME score becomes 0.4 and this is achieved by dividing the percentages by 100.
  2. Multiply your JAMB score by 0.6 and multiply your Post UTME score by 0.4.
  3. Add each of the products of your multiplication. Then multiply the sum with 100.
  4. The score you have as the result will determine the possibility of your admission into FUKASHERE.
