JAMB Subject Combinations For All Courses – Sciences, Arts And Social Sciences

We understand the importance of choosing the right subject combinations during JAMB registration. So we have painstakingly compiled the JAMB Subject Combinations for all courses and institutions (Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges of education etc). This has been grouped into JAMB subject combination for science courses, JAMB subject combination for art courses, and JAMB subject combination for Arts courses.

Please note that English Language is a compulsory subject meaning you must sit for it during JAMB UTME.  So regardless of your intended course of study, English Language is a automatically a part of your subject combination. You are only allowed to sit for four (4) subjects in UTME. That simply means you are to choose three other relevant subjects in addition to English language making it four subjects.
