The subjects needed to study Computer 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 compulsory WAEC subject combination for Computer Education must include
JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Computer Education
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… 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. JAMB UTME subject combination (subject to write in jamb) to study Computer Education are
Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Computer Education
i. Two A/L passes or equivalent in Physics and Mathematics.
ii. Diploma in Computer Science Education or any other Diploma in Computer Science Education from any recognised institution
iii. Distinction or Credit or Merit or Pass in NCE in Computer Education or Physics or Mathematics
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 compulsory WAEC, JAMB subject combination for Computer Education, (which is also applicable to NECO and GCE) as well as A-level result/certificate.
