Selection Criteria for entry into the Medical Programme of Nigerian Universities: The Efficacy of Combining School Certificate Results with JAMB Scores in Selection of Candidates into the Ogbomosho Medical School|
Afolabi, A. O.; Mabayoje, V. O.; Togun, V. A. & Oyadeyi, A. S.
The study was designed to assess the effect of combining (by equal weighting) ‘O level scores in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics with the University Matriculation Examinations (UME) Scores on the performance indices of 100level CGPA, 200L Physiology scores and overall success in the Faculty based 200L comprehensive examinations. The study showed a good correlation between the combined scores and CGPA and Physiology scores. However, there was no significant difference in the degree of correlation of the combined scores and the ‘O’ Level only scores with the 100L CGPA and 200L physiology scores. The UME only scores showed poor correlation with both the CGPA and 200L physiology scores.
