JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Building
Knowing JAMB subjects for Building 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, HND or Predegree!..
JAMB UTME subject combinations (subjects to write in jamb) to study Building are:
Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Building
‘A’ level passes in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry
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 Building 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. Education is now a choice. And please before you make a decision on which University to choose, please consider

Building is how many years course and under which faculty?
Depending on your mode of entry, Building is a three to four years course in Nigeria. According to JAMB, Building is under Faculty of Agriculture but may be under a different faculty in some universities.
Can a commercial or art student study Building?
No! Building is a pure science course and not suitable for commercial or art student. But if you have required subject combination in your O level result, you can go for it if that is the course you desire to study. If you’re still in secondary school, you may find it difficult to change subjects during WAEC registration because your schools may go against it. The alternative way to write the required subjects combination for Building is through GCE.
