WAEC Subject Combination For Physics Education

In WAEC, NECO or GCE, you are expected to register a maximum of 9 subjects for a Physics Education degree. You can register for less than 9 subjects if you are resitting.

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 for a Physics Education degree.

Remember, the requirement 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 gaining admission. Any subject with blue colour means, a pass is allowed.

If 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 WAEC/NECO/GCE subject combinations for Physics Education are:

  1. English Language
  2. Mathematics
  3. Civic Education
  4. Chemistry
  5. Biology
  6. Physics
  7. Agriculture/Geography
  8. Any Nigerian Language
  9. A Trade subject

If you have your O level result already and the subjects you have is not the same as the admission requirement that is the required O level subject combinations to study Physics Education, don’t give up. You should consider other Physics Education similar courses or 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. And please before you make a decision on which University to choose, please read valuable guides on how to choose a course and university
