You must have Credit Pass  in the subject for which you intends to make your chosen Teaching Subject. This subject combination is also applicable to other O’level exams such as NECO AND GCE. The required WAEC subject combination to study English/Islamic Studies in the College of Education must include:

  • English Language
  • Mathematics.
  • Islamic Studies
  • Literature in English and any one other Arts subject

These listed subjects are compulsory for anyone writing WAEC and other O level examinations. I will advise you to include a Language in your O level subjects. For the record, if you are one of those students seeking admission into any College of Education in Lagos State, then Yoruba Language is compulsory. So now that you know the compulsory O level subject requirement to study English/Islamic Studies, let also look at JAMB UTME.


JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for English/Islamic Studies

Before we consider the list of College of Education offering English/Islamic Studies, let see the compulsory JAMB subjects for English/Islamic Studies that you must register (English must be included because it is compulsory even though it may not be listed among the JAMB subjects below), and I will honestly advise you to aim for a score of 150 so that you can easily gain admission into any College of Education. Read how to answer and pass JAMB once.

Please note– English Language is compulsory. If Mathematics is not listed among the Jamb subject on this post, then Mathematics is not compulsory for this course. JAMB is not the only option to gain admission into Nigerian Institutions to study English/Islamic Studies. If you’re having troubles with JAMB UTME, maybe it’s time you pass through IJBM, JUBEB, ND, HND or Predegree.

JAMB UTME subject combination to study English/Islamic Studies in College of Education must include:
