You’re expected to have at least 5 credits on the required WAEC subject combination needed to study Film and Video Studies in Nigeria universities. This subject combination is also applicable to other O’level exams such as NECO AND GCE. The O level requirement, that is, the required WAEC subject combination for Film and Video Studies must include:
- English Language
- Literature in English
- Any two subjects in Science and any other subject.
- A trade subject
These listed subjects are compulsory for anyone writing WAEC and other O level examinations. I will advise you to include a Language in your O level subjects. For the record, if you are one of those students seeking admission into any universities, college or polytechnics in Lagos State, Yoruba Language is compulsory for Film and Video Studies. So now that you know the compulsory O level subject requirement to study Film and Video Studies, let also look at JAMB UTME and Direct requirements.
JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Film and Video Studies
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is a body responsible for your admission into the University or other institutions. Now I’m going to show you the compulsory JAMB subjects for Film and Video Studies that you must register (English must be included because it is compulsory even though it may not be listed among the JAMB subjects below), and I will honestly advise you to aim for a score of 200 and above in JAMB UTME instead of 180 to be on a safe side because anything short of that may deny you of Admission/Post UTME. Of course, if you have a score below 180, you can consider the College of Education or Polytechnic… Read how to answer and pass JAMB once.
Please note– English Language is compulsory. If Mathematics is not listed among the Jamb subject on this post, then Mathematics is not compulsory for this course. JAMB is not the only option to gain admission into Nigerian Universities to study Film and Video Studies. If you’re having troubles with JAMB UTME, maybe it’s time you pass through IJBM, JUBEB, ND, HND or Predegree!..

This course is historical in nature. It exposes a student to the origin of moving image on aesthetics, politics, culture, and identity through historical, theoretical, and practical perspectives. Film studies is an academic discipline that deals with various theoretical, historical, and critical approaches to films.

Film studies are less concerned with advancing proficiency in film production than it is with exploring the narrative, artistic, cultural, economic, and political implications of the cinema…..
