In fact, you must have these four O’level requirements before talking about the other subjects.

For instance, in Economics as a programme in the university, you already know Economics as a subject in secondary school is a must, then you add other required three subjects. Then, if you want to study Biological Science in the University, of course, you know that Biology is a must in your WAEC/NECO and then you add the remaining three subjects.

So too, if you are going for Medicine and Surgery, you must have Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

What Is Jamb Subject Combination/Requirement?

So, subjects requirements are those core subjects needed for admission into different programmes in the University. Miis one subject and you may not be admitted into that programme you so like. This is to say if you are going for Economics as a programme in the University and in your O’level, you do not have Economics, just forget about that programme.

Then, you are going for Medicine and you do not have Physics, or you do not have Biology or Chemistry, just forget Medicine and write WAEC/NECO again.

NDU UTME Subject Requirement/Combination

Originally, the subject combination for Jamb and NDU should be the same. But in some cases, they are often different. Although these differences are sometimes inconsequential, it is however, safer to use the University subject combinations because it is the University that will actually grant you the admission.

Why Subject Combinations/Requirements?

Subject combinations are the areas that are used to determine your suitability for certain programmes in the university. If you want to study Science related courses like Engineering, then you must know Mathematics. If you do not have mathematics, then you are not eligible to study Engineering in the University. Hence, the subject requirements are what tell the various admission institutions that you are eligible and can study such programme.

Is Mathematics Compulsory / Required for Admission?

YES. Without mathematics, it is difficult to gain admission into any Nigerian University. Very few programmes like Agriculture can manage a candidate without Mathemetics on O’level result (O’level means WAEC or NECO or any result of this type)

Is English Language Compulsory / Required for Admission?

YES. English Language is the first compulsory subject for admission. Unlike Mathematics where you can see few programmes that can manage Pass, English is a no go area. You must have a miimum of Credit in English Language before you can gain admission into any Nigerian University. If you even gain admission without it (which is possible), during 100 level clearance, you will be screened out and all you efforts wasted.

In some cases, some universities MAY allow you to gain admission into their system without Mathematics or English but will expect you to sit for it while in school so that before you graduate, you are able to get it.
