  • English Language
  • Mathematics.
  • Economics
  • Government/History and any other Social Science/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 Economics/Social Studies, let also look at JAMB UTME.
