However, you must have at least 5 credit passes amongst the 9 subjects listed below before you can gain admission into any Nigerian university to study a Political Science Education degree.

Remember, the subject combination you’re about to read is also applicable to all o level examinations. (WAEC, NECO and GCE). We have painstakingly highlighted (in red) the core subjects on which you must obtain credit before you can gain admission. Any subject with blue colour means, a pass is allowed.

If however, you fail one of the core subjects, you should read through each university’s special requirements for this course below to see if there is a university that may accept another subject in lieu of the one you failed. The 9 O level requirements for Political Science Education are:
