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

The subjects needed to study Education and Mathematics 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 Education and Mathematics must include

  1. English Language
  2. Mathematics
  3. One other Science subject

 

JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Education and Mathematics 

Knowing JAMB subjects for Education and Mathematics 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 Education and Mathematics

  1. Mathematics
  2. Any two of the following Science subjects: Physics, Chemistry and Biology

 




Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Education and Mathematics

Two ‘A’ level/NCE passes in Mathematics and one Science subject

 

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 Education and Mathematics  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
