All You Should Know About Combining O’Level Results

Share This Post:

There are three recognized bodies when it comes to conducting O’level examinations in Nigeria;

-The West African Examination Council (WAEC)

-National Examination Council (NECO)

National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB)

One major question students or admission seekers often ask concerning the results obtained from these examination bodies is, “Can I combine “this” with “that”?

Now, let’s deal with that. When it comes to combining O’level results, one thing you should know is that any institution that accepts two sittings for a particular course will allow you to combine your O’Level Results when seeking admission into that course (WAEC/NECO, WAEC/WAEC, NECO/NECO, WAEC/NABTEB, NECO/ NABTEB, NABTEB/NABTEB) and their GCE equivalents regardless of the difference between the years you sat for them. However, there are exceptions;

  1. Some schools accepts 5 credits at one sitting or 6 credits at two sittings for some courses e.g University of Ibadan (UI) accepts O’ level 5 credits at one sitting or 6 credits at two sittings for Law.
  2. UNIBEN, UNIBADAN, IMSU, ABSU, EBSU, UNIOSUN, ANSU, UNILORIN, DELSU, UNILAG, UNN and BOWEN accepts just one sitting for Medicine And Surgery (MBBS).
  3. UI Accepts Just one sitting for Pharmacy
  4. All Polytechnics, Colleges of Education etc accepts combination of results but it should not exceed two sittings

So the bottom-line when it comes to O’level result combination is to know what is the acceptable O’ level requirements in your school of choice. You can know this from the school’s website or the school’s admission office. You can also check the acceptable O’ level requirements of your school using the JAMB Brochure ( download the document and use the table of contents to navigate to the particular course or faculty you want and view the O’ level requirements for that course in your school).

We hope this helps. If you have questions, you can ask using the comment box.
