You must be a science student to study Forestry 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 Forestry

The subjects needed to study Forestry 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 Forestry must include:

  1. English Language
  2. Mathematics
  3. Chemistry
  4. Biology/Agric. Science
  5. Any of Physics, Economics, Further Mathematics and Statistics.
  6. A  trade subject

 

JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Forestry 

Knowing JAMB subjects for Forestry 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 Forestry

  1. Chemistry
  2. Biology or Agriculture
  3. Physics

 

Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Forestry
Two ’A’ level passes in Chemistry and Biology or Agric Science or Zoology or Botany

 

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 Forestry  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

See useful guides on how to choose a course and university

These are the list of Universities offering Forestry in Nigeria

  1. University of Agriculture, Makurdi with options in i. Social and Environmental Forestry ii. Wild Life and Range Management iii. Forest Production and Products.
  2. Kebbi State University, Kebbi

 

Cut-off Mark for Forestry course

The cut-off mark for Forestry varies. You can check these universities JAMB UTME cut off marks here. Forestry 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.

Forestry is how many years course and under which faculty?

Depending on your mode of entry, Forestry 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 Forestry

No! Forestry 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 Forestry is through GCE.

 

Where can I work with a Degree in Forestry 
I believe you now know the subjects required to study Forestry. 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.
