This page literally covers answers to questions related to O level and A-level requirement to study Agricultural Science and Education. 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!

 

WAEC subject combination (requirements) for Agricultural Science and Education

The subjects needed to study Agricultural Science and Education in WAEC must contain five (5) credit. This subject combination is also applicable to NECO AND GCE… The O level requirement, that is, the required WAEC subject combination for Agricultural Science and Education must include

  1. English Language
  2. Chemistry
  3. Biology/ Agricultural Science
  4. Mathematics
  5. Another relevant subject
  6. A Trade subject

 

JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Agricultural Science and Education 

Knowing JAMB subjects for Agricultural Science and Education 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 Agricultural Science and Education

  1. Chemistry
  2. Biology
  3. Agriculture
  4. Physics

 

Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Agricultural Science and Education
(i) Two passes at ‘A’ level in Biology /Zoology /Botany and any other Science subject.
(ii) NCE at merit pass level in Biology and any other Science subject.
(iii) NCE merit pass level in Agriculture (Double Major)

 

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 Agricultural Science and Education  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
