Why You Need to know the Right O’level/UTME Subject Combination for your course

One of the common mistakes candidates make when choosing course of study during UTME registration is picking a course they do not have the O-level/ UTME  subject combination or requirement for. This mistake is one of the major reasons candidates fail to gain admission into higher institutions every year.

The reason many candidates make this mistake is that they are not informed. Some of them believe that once you have 5 credit pass in your O’level including English and Mathematics, you can apply for any course. Others believe that the subjects you sit for during UTME do not matter.

The truth is any course of study you want to apply for in any university, Polytechnic etc. has specified O’level/UTME subject combination/requirement. Before applying for any course in any institution, it is advisable you know the acceptable O’level/UTME subject combination for that particular course in that institution.

For instance, if you are applying for an engineering course, you will have to sit for mathematics in UTME. Similarly, if you are going for any medical related course, you will have to sit for Biology in UTME.

Many have been disqualified from gaining admission for the simple reason that they did not meet the O’level/UTME subject requirement for the particular course they applied for.

One can easily confirm what the acceptable O’level/ UTME requirement is for one’s chosen course in any institution directly from the JAMB Brochure.

The only sure way to confirm the correct O’level/UTME subject combination is to check your JAMB Brochure. However, to ensure you make the right choice, we have painstakingly put together the official JAMB UTME subject combinations for all courses as it is on JAMB brochure. You can access this by clicking on JAMB SUBJECT COMBINATION FOR ALL COURSES. Unfortunately, we couldn’t do the same for O’level subjects due to the fact that most universities have their own specific O’level requirements.

So you may need to check the JAMB Brochure to confirm the correct O’level subject requirements for your school.
