You must be a science student to study Polymer Engineering  in Nigeria Universities, and that’s can only be possible if you meet admission requirements. This page literally covers answers to questions related to O level and A-level requirement.

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 ignore.


WAEC subject combination (requirements) for Polymer Engineering 

The subjects needed to study Polymer Engineering 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 Polymer Engineering must include:

  1. Mathematics
  2. Chemistry
  3. Physics
  4. English Language
  5. Any other Science subject
  6. A trade subject


Before you consider the JAMB UTME subject combination for this course, it is good you know what this course is all about. Polymers have become an undetachable part of our everyday life. Could you imagine life in the world without polymer products. However, the awareness quotient tends to be on the lower side. This can be enhanced through specific courses designed for the purpose.


The recent developments of Polymer Technology have revolutionized the field of material science increasing the use of polymer based substances from building materials to Packing materials, Fancy decoration articles, Electrical engineering, Communications, Automobile, Aircrafts, etc.


Polymer Technology has carved a niche in the fields of electronics and electrical materials, textiles, aerospace industry, automobile industry, etc.

JAMB UTME subject combination (requirements) for Polymer Engineering 

Knowing JAMB subjects for Polymer Engineering 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 Polymer Engineering are:

  1. Physics
  2. Chemistry
  3. Mathematics


Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Polymer Engineering
‘A’ level passes in Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics


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 Polymer Engineering  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

  • The Fees
  • The Distance
  • The Environment
  • The Degree Certificate
  • Vulnerability to Strike
  • Acceptable O Level and A-level Result
  • Academic Calendar

These are the list of Universities offering Polymer Engineering  in Nigeria

According to 2020/2021 JAMB Brochure, only Ondo State University of Science and Technology Okitipupa (OSUSTECH) offers Polymer Engineering

Cut-off Mark for Polymer Engineering course

The cut-off mark for Polymer Engineering is 180. You can check these universities JAMB UTME cut off marks here. Polymer Engineering is a good course and you can also check the top best engineering courses. This should not influence you. Follow your heart or seek my counsel.


Polymer Engineering is how many years course and under which faculty?

Depending on your mode of entry, Polymer Engineering is a three to four years course in Nigeria. According to JAMB, Polymer Engineering is under Faculty of Agriculture but may be under a different faculty in some universities.


Can a commercial or art student study Polymer Engineering?

No! Polymer Engineering 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 Polymer Engineering is through GCE.


Where can I work with a Degree in Polymer Engineering 
I believe you now know the subjects required to study Polymer Engineering. I urge you to also find out where you can work with the degree. Please take your time to read The Act of Getting a Job – so you would know what you’re up against after graduating.

Graduates professionals can also seek employment in various industries such as computing, medical, pharmaceutical, electronics, IT, aerospace, automotive as well as the rubber and plastic industries. In the public sector polymer technologists, scientists and engineers can seek employment opportunities in the natural gas and petroleum sectors, engineering plants, petrochemicals etc


The SSCE O level and A-level subject needed to study Polymer Engineering have been listed above. Some Universities may accept D7 or E8 in some a compulsory subject instead of Credit. And some may accept or reject two sittings. That is combinations of WAEC, NECO, or GCE results. You will know more when you take a look at the special consideration (waiver) for this course if available. Please take note that when you see Check, it simply means the special consideration for this course had been merge with a related course to save space.
