You must be a science student to study Plant Science and Biotechnology 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.
In other words, the WAEC subject combination (requirements), JAMB UTME subject combination (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 student guide articles that will be of benefit to you. You can ignore.

WAEC subject combination (requirements) for Plant Science and Biotechnology
The subjects needed to study Plant Science and Biotechnology in WAEC must contain five (5) credit. This subject combination is also applicable to NECO AND GCE… The required WAEC subject combination (O level requirement) for Plant Science and Biotechnology must include:
- English Language
- Biology or Agric. Science
- Any other subject
- A trade subject
JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Plant Science and Biotechnology
Knowing JAMB subjects for Plant Science and Biotechnology 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, HND or Predegree!..
These are JAMB UTME subject combinations (subjects to write in jamb) to study Plant Science and Biotechnology
- Biology or Agriculture
- Physics or Mathematics
Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Plant Science and Biotechnology
Two ‘A’ levels in Chemistry and any of Biology, Agric Science, Zoology and 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 Plant Science and Biotechnology 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

This is the list of Universities offering Plant Science and Biotechnology in Nigeria
For now, only Abia State University, Uturu offers Plant Science and Biotechnology
Cut-off Mark for Plant Science and Biotechnology course
The cut-off mark for Plant Science and Biotechnology 180. You can check these universities JAMB UTME cut off marks here. Plant Science and Biotechnology 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.
Plant Science and Biotechnology is how many years course and under which faculty?
Depending on your mode of entry, Plant Science and Biotechnology 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 Plant Science and Biotechnology
No! Plant Science and Biotechnology 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 Plant Science and Biotechnology is through GCE.
Where can I work with a Degree in Plant Science and Biotechnology
I believe you now know the subjects required to study Plant Science and Biotechnology. 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 Plant Science and Biotechnology 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
