  40. Good morning.. pls I’ll like to clear this air of points calculation… if a candidate gets for example ABF which in write sum gives 9 points.. does it imply that he still has he’s 9 points and can gain admission or that he has lost both the total points due to the F score and can no longer gain admission.. in general. I’ll just like to know the implication of getting an F whatsoever, even if the rest two are AA

  41. hello, pls I want to be sure.. if someone has a grade point such as ABF.. does it inquire that he has, 9 points still and can be considered for admission.. or the F has forfeited the remaining grades A and B.. and he/she can’t get considered for admission

    1. ABF = is 9 points. F does not disqualify you at all, you still very good to gain admission with 9 points in JUPEB
