Note

  • JAMB officially classified this course under Faculty/School/College of Agriculture/Vet. Medicine.
  • Probable Degree type – [B. Agric. (B.Sc. (Hons.) B. Tech. (Hons.) B. Agric. Tech.) DVM]

The admission requirement to study Agriculture in Nigeria Universities includes one or a combination of ‘O’ level results or A-level result if you’re going through Direct Entry. This page will literally answer questions such as WAEC subject combination, JAMB UTME subject combination, Direct Entry requirements, Special consideration (waivers), where you can work with the degree and the required documents for admission into Nigeria universities. If you’re still having difficulties with getting admission in Nigeria Universities, we have some post that may be of benefit to you.

 

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

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

 

JAMB UTME subject combination (subjects needed) for Agriculture
You should aim for a score of 180 – 200 and above in JAMB UTME to be on a safe side (Just an 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… Don’t expect JAMB score upgrade. White collar Scammers are everywhere. JAMB UTME subject combination (subjects needed) for Agriculture are

  1. Chemistry
  2. Biology/Agriculture
  3. Choose one of Physics and Mathematics

 

Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Agriculture
Two A-level passes in Chemistry and one from Biology/Botany/Zoology/ Agric Science, Economics, Physics, Geography and Geology/Mathematics (Pure & Applied).

 

Just a reminder: Everything you have read so far is a general requirement, it is expedient that you also check the special consideration for this course below. If for some reasons you are not satisfied or cannot meet up with the subject combination above, perhaps you should consider taking 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. Education is now a choice.

So now that you know the subject combination (needed) for Agriculture, (which is also applicable to NECO and GCE) as well as A-level result/certificate.
