You must be a science student to study Home Science and Management 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), s, 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!

JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Home Science and Management 

Knowing JAMB subjects for Home Science and Management 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 Home Science and Management

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

 

Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Home Science and Management
Two ‘A’ level passes or equivalents in Chemistry and Biology/Botany/Agric Science/ Economics/Physics/Math ematics/Geography/Accounting.

 

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 Home Science and Management  similar courses or take a look at Polytechnic or College of Education related course subject requirements.

Cut-off Mark for Home Science and Management course

The cut-off mark for Home Science and Management varies. You can check these universities JAMB UTME cut off marks here. Home Science and Management 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.

Home Science and Management is how many years course and under which faculty?

Depending on your mode of entry, Home Science and Management 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 Home Science and Management

No! Home Science and Management 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 Home Science and Management is through GCE.
