You must be a science student to study Animal Science in Nigeria Universities, and that’s can only be possible if you meet admission requirements. This page literally covers answers to questions related to O level and A-level requirement.

That is, the WAEC subject combination (requirements), JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements), Direct Entry requirements, Special consideration (waivers) and the required documents for admission into Nigeria universities. In other to help you avoid having difficulties with getting admission in Nigeria Universities, we have some post that will be of benefit to you. You can always ignore!

 

WAEC subject combination (requirements) for Animal Science

The subjects needed to study Animal Science in WAEC must contain five (5) credit. This subject combination is also applicable to NECO AND GCE… The O level requirement, that is, the required WAEC subject combination for Animal Science must include:

  1. English Language
  2. Chemistry
  3. Mathematics
  4. Biology/Agric Science
  5. One of Physics, Geography or Economics
  6. A trade subject

 

JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Animal Science 

Knowing JAMB subjects for Animal Science is not enough. You should aim for a score of 180 – 200 and above in JAMB UTME to be on a safe side (Just a piece of advice) because anything short of that may deny you of Admission/Post UTME. Of course, if you have a score below 180, you can consider College of Education or Polytechnic… Please note – JAMB is not the only option for admission. If you’re having troubles JAMB UTME maybe it’s time you pass through IJBM, JUBEB, ND or Predegree.

These are JAMB UTME subject combinations (subjects to write in jamb) to study Animal Science

  1. Chemistry
  2. Biology/Agriculture
  3. Mathematics /Physics

 

Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Animal Science
Two ‘A’ level passes or equivalent in Chemistry and one of Biology/Botany/Zoology/ Agric Science/Geography/Geolo gy/Mathematics/Economics.

 

If for some reasons you are not satisfied or cannot meet up with this admission requirement that is the subject combination above, perhaps you should consider other Animal Science  similar courses or take a look at Polytechnic or College of Education related course subject requirements. You can also study online with a foreign university right from your bedroom or apply for a scholarship to study abroad or within. Education is now a choice. And please before you make a decision on which University to choose, please consider

  • The Fees
  • The Distance
  • The Environment
  • The Degree Certificate
  • Vulnerability to Strike
  • Acceptable O Level and A-level Result
  • Academic Calendar

Cut-off Mark for Animal Science course

The cut-off mark for Animal Science varies. You can check these universities JAMB UTME cut off marks here. Animal Science is a good course and you can also check the top best Agricultural courses. This should not influence you. Follow your heart or seek my counsel.

Animal Science is how many years course and under which faculty?

Depending on your mode of entry, Animal Science is a three to four years course in Nigeria. According to JAMB, this course is under Faculty of Agriculture but may be under a different faculty in some universities.

Can a commercial or art student study Animal Science

No! Animal Science is a science course and not suitable for commercial or art student. But if you have required subject combination in your O level result, you can go for it if that is the course you desire to study. If you’re still in secondary school, you may find it difficult to change subjects during WAEC registration because your schools may go against it. The alternative way to write the required subjects combination for Animal Science is through GCE.

 

Is Animal Science a science or social science subject?

Many student ask me this question and this is my answer. Yes, Animal Science is a natural science subject. Want details? checkout what natural science courses is all about and get to know the courses under natural science.

 

 

Where can I work with a Degree in Animal Science 
I believe you now know the subjects required to study Animal Science. I urge you to also find out where you can work with the degree. Please take your time to read Fatherprada’s Career Guide – so that you can have knowledge on how the labour market operate after graduating. Career opportunities will be added when we revisit this page.

 

The SSCE O level and A-level subject needed to study Animal Science have been listed above but, some Universities may accept D7 or E8 in some a compulsory subject instead of Credit. And some may accept or reject two sittings. That is combinations of WAEC, NECO, or GCE results. You will know more when you take a look at the special consideration (waiver) for this course if available.
