All You Should Know About Combining O’Level Results

Many candidates often ask if their schools of choice will accept the combination of O’level results or accept O’level results obtained after two sittings. Combining O’level results or Using “Two sittings Result” happens when you don’t have all the needed O’level requirements for your course of study in a single result, which means you have to sit for another exam to make up for the remaining required subject (s).

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 almost all institutions accept two sittings and that means you can actually combine a maximum of two 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 accept 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 accept a combination of results but it should not exceed two sittings

Combining O’level results does not really put you at a disadvantage during the admission process. The only time it does is in the instances mentioned above or if your school of choice decides to consider the number of O’level exam sittings as one of the primary criteria in the admission process which rarely happens.

So the bottom line is whether it is one sitting or two sittings, just make sure that you have the right O’level requirements for any course you intend to apply for in your school of choice.

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

        All students can be admitted into the school of choice only by studying harder.

        Now in respect on result combination, students are advised to try their possible best to make all their papers in 1 sitting because it gives 90 percent of getting admission into the selected institution as chosen.

        The reason why you are required to try your best to make 1 sitting which gives 90 percent of being admited into the institution is because it boosts up candidate´s UTME exam score given by the selected institution.

        Students of nowadays thinks they can´t make 1 sitting because they are now reluctant in studying their books but the truth is everyone have the spirit of success in him. I believed in this inspiration that “I can do it all alone and once and for all” in constant practicing past questions and answers.

        Nowadays youths misuse the advantages of social media and search engines (google, wiki pediatric, esclopedia e t c.) they rather use it as an advantage of their playing games to search for unnecessary things instead of educative things.

        Now in respect of two sittings, i will still advise all school candidate of high school should try their best in getting their first paper but if they still missed their target and go for the second sitting, he/she should not be reluctant in still trying to clear all the papers in the second sittings because the more your high score after combination of the two sittings, the more the chance of getting admission into the selected institution of choice as selected.

        Many student feel more reluctant in writting their second sitting saying “After all am only looking for just two or three papers, so i will only put my best on those papers” this is the mentality of students saying they will only focus on their needed subjects but that is not the case, the real deal is by you trying even harder to clear all your papers in the second sitting but if still can´t clear all but got needed papers and high marks in other subjects, it gives you high chance on being selected in your selected institution and in the course selected as well.


        • What if one fails economics in waec but the remaining subjects are okay and in neco he passes all the subject can he submit the two for admission
